I'm about to blow your mind right now, get ready for it: You can make your children's artwork COME TO LIFE! Well, maybe not to life life, but you can turn it into a 3D stuffed toy - holdable, hugable, lovable! This is quite possibly the coolest birthday present EVER!
I just couldn't wait to give Busdies a try, but obviously my 18 month old is not quite able to conceive an idea and put it down on paper. Let's face it, he can barely scribble! So I took crayon to paper and made the artwork myself. But he did help with the scribbling...
This may come as a shock when you see the picture below, but no, I'm not a professional artist, LOL! My inspiration? My son of course, and my company! My son's name is Kenzo, and "zo" in Japanese has a couple of meanings, one of which is elephant. So, naturally that has been his animal mascot since birth. It was then also the idea behind the logo for my business, Miny Moe (selling multi-brand diaper and nursing pad samplers). Our logo is an elephant, named Moe the Zo, and here he is folks - Moe has COME TO LIFE and is soooooooooooooo adorable!!!
I couldn't have been more in love with Moe when I opened up the box. He looks EXACTLY like my drawing, and is really soft and well made. High quality! And what did Kenzo think? Have a look...
Kenzo is absolutely enamored with his new stuffed elephant!!!! He is especially fond of his trunk, which he likes to kiss. OMG it's too cute!!
The tag that comes with the stuffed animal (pictured left) is spot on, really. "It immortalizes your child's creativity & we hope it becomes your child's best bud for life." I have no doubt that it will, Budsies - THANK YOU!!!
After you bring the character to life, there are other cool ways to preserve your child's artwork that I've seen popping up lately, and I can't wait until my little guy starts creating all of his masterpieces so I can try some of these out!
