Dream Toys... Seriously
I would say that as a child I was a stuffed animal enthusiast (to put it mildly), and my Mom eventually enacted a ban to keep my plush posse from growing.
I was also a little artist, which caused me to destroy my first Cabbage Patch Kid when I tried to turn her into a bunny for Halloween. This incident occurred during the height of the Cabbage craze and I pretty much horrified my family who had gone to great lengths to get the dolls for me and my sister... and mine looked like a possessed cartoon devil child.
So, I tell you these 2 tales as background for my reaction to the brilliant company, A Child's Own, that turns children's drawings into stuffed animals.
This is pretty much the coolest thing in the whole world to me as an adult... so I can only imagine how stoked little noodles are when their dreams turn into a reality.
Love. This. Check out the Flickr photos of these dream toys here.
