My kids love stuffed animals. Hard part is that if they aren’t a beloved character, they seem to be forgotten pretty quickly. It sad to see fun bears, dogs, etc getting put at the bottom of the toy bins. My kids also love to color amazing works of art (daily) and want them displayed throughout the house. I have up pictures and paintings on the fridge, cork board and in their rooms.
Now if only there were a way to make sure both of these well loved items could be represented in the best way possible. Have you heard of Budsies? If not, let me tell you about them. They are an amazing company who literally bring your child’s drawings to life! If you or your child can dream it and illustrate it, the Budsies creative team can make it come to life!
What a special way to surprise someone with their own artwork! They also do selfies, where you send in a picture of someone and they create their likeness in stuffed form! They are also in the Beta testing process of creating Petsies. And it is so easy to make happen. You can text; email or upload your picture or artwork and their team will get back to you to let you know it was approved. Greatness takes time, but then your Budsie should arrive in about 9-12 weeks. Right now they are at about 12 weeks, since the Budsie debut on shark Tank!
I chose my daughter’s abstract and colorful mermaid to have made. The communication process was amazing and I knew almost every step of what was happening. When the Budsie box arrived, I was as excited as my little girl. This is such a special memory for her, as she essentially created this stuffed animal. Her mermaid gets tucked in with her each evening and hasn’t even made it to the toy bin, let alone the bottom of it!
