Imagine this, you take a drawing done by a child, send it to this website [link], and they makes a stuffed toy based on it. How awesome is that!
I'm always completely in awe of arty people like that. How on earth do they do it? I can barely draw a straight line even if I'm using a ruler, there's no way I'd be able to scrabble together enough artistic ability to make a toy based on a kid's scribble, let alone make it look that good!
At least I would if I had the faintest idea how to draw a narwahl spaceman.
Seriously though, I think this is one of the cleverest gift ideas I've ever seen. What a wonderful thing to do for a child, showing them that you value their imagination and creativity. It's definitely a step up from "Lets stick your picture on the fridge", that's for sure.
But why on earth did I have to find out about it AFTER Christmas! I could have saved a lot of present shopping angsting if only I'd known about it earlier.
Isn't it always the way?
Note: I'm not getting compensated in any way, shape or form for writing this. I just thought it was really REALLY cool. I mean, come on, who wouldn't want that purple stuffed dog by the little five year old girl! I totally would, and I'd call him Henry McWoofington. He looks like a Henry, don't you think?
