I don’t get excited about too many new businesses out there, because I feel like most are not very original. But I think this one is totally brilliant. Child’s Own Studio custom makes soft toys out of children’s drawings. So wacky! So special! So awesome!
Since every toy is custom made, I imagine the service is pretty expensive. Also, it appears that the owner has a long waiting list and is not taking any more orders at the moment. But this is definitely something I’m going to file away for when I have a kid someday. Assuming s/he can draw something other than sticks and circles (which would actually make very easy custom-made toys that even I could make, so… yay for sticks and circles?).
