Child’s Own Studio’s “Softiemaker Showcase” features websites that will take your child’s drawing and turn it into a stuffed animal. Since each stuffed animal (softie) is custom made, they’re a bit expensive ($35-$100 depending on the size and level of detail), but this is something I’d probably spend way too much money on if I had the money to burn. Examples below. I selected a couple of the simpler ones to give you a sense of how the transfer from drawing to animal worked, but some of them get very elaborate. Visit the website. Even if you’re not in the market, you’ll get a laugh.
