Any one who knows me, knows that I hate plush toys, I really truly dislike them, they are great for children under the age of ‘loves Barbie’ after that I am sure they become disease infested dust collecting, dog toys, that are terribly slippery when placed on polished timber flooring in ones house.
That being said, I am always rather partial to children’s idea being forced into reality especially their crazy little drawings of different creatures and people. Whilst they push you to the limits of what’s annoying/humorous/tiring/hygienic, that also push their own little imaginations into the unthinkable.
Some of the faces and drawing our little team members have doen are pretty cool and I have found a website that turns such drawings into very cool plush toys!
Child’s Own Studio is an amazing website/craft artist who puts children’s crazy/amazing drawings into beautiful handmade plush toys.
Each one a perfect recreation as it passes from imagination into plush toy existence. On the Child’s Own Studio Website, there is also some very cool accompanying stories from the children that make the original drawings.
As per the site, Child’s Own Studio is described like this by the site.
“Child’s Own Studio is a place where your child and a craft artist, together, can create a keepsake to be cherished for a lifetime”
all so cool, my favourite is “Steggy off to school”
I know this is not the first of this kind of idea. I remember seeing child’s art being recreate by adults some time ago, but the fact the Child’s Own Studio turns them into cool plush dolls for the child to keep, I think is very cool.
Please goo and check out the site, or the Flickr
I love the annotation to explain the computer. Totally cool.
