The refrigerators in most homes can be likened to a household's very own Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each tiny treasure displays the imagination within each little mind, and even the smallest sketches quickly become keepsakes that will be cherished for many, many years. What if you could bring your child's artistic works to life? A young mother in Canada had this very thought and made it happen. She has since created a booming business based on creating plush stuffed toys out of the simple fridge-worthy drawings of children, and has an endless wait list to show for the success of her innovation! Allow us to introduce you to the unique creations of Child's Own Studio.
Here's an example of one drawing that was transformed into a plush stuffed toy. How cute is that?
We love the exact replica that has been created from the marker drawing. It's right on the money, down to every detail. This is certainly something that can't be found in any toy store!
Child's Own Studio celebrates the artistic mind and imagination of a child's drawings, and each stuffed animal is hand-created to bring back memories of the special moments of their childhood. Every detail is covered in the creation of the stuffed toy, right down to the very colors and patterns within the special sketch. We can't think of a more special way to cherish the special adventures of an itty bitty. At the moment, Child's Own Studio is backed up with orders, but we're sure that if you continue to check her website she'll give updated information when she gets ready for the second round of orders. Toys are shipped to locations worldwide, making her not only creative and family-friendly, but also a globally successful business.
Another example of Child's Own Studio work is captured in the crayon drawing of this friendly little owl. With the collection of fabric and some stitching, this colorful drawing is transformed into a life-size "softie", as the designer calls them. The resemblance is uncanny!
The next time your mini Monet brings you a special sketch to post on the fridge, think of all the possibilities. That precious piece of art could become their new best friend, after all!
