DESIGN: Making Designer Toys With Children’s Drawings


It started with a simple idea: to make a recognizable comfort toy for a 4 year-old boy based on his drawing. This very creative mother has since made a few hundred soft toys based on children’s drawings allowing her to launch her home-based craft business called Child’s Own Studio.

Each toy is as custom made and unique as the child who drew it. Now if I could go back in time and have her design my 10-legged-astronaut-lion!

Check out some of her cool creations below.  You can see more of her creations on her Flickr page.
