If there’s one thing both kids and parents alike cherish, its our children’s imaginative artwork. Even though they probably aren’t Van Gogh worthy just yet, they are the outpouring of our children’s sweet spirits and are irreplaceable! While much of our kids art spends a few days on the refrigerator, it inevitably will end up stored away where no one can see it or sent to the garbage. But what if there was a way to save and cherish your kids artwork, that would not only keep it in plain sight but also serve as a much-loved toy? Thanks to Budsies, there is!
What is Budsies, you may ask? They are a company committed to bringing your children’s artwork to life! They can take drawings from even the youngest child and transform them into plush, stuffed animals or dolls with amazing likeness to the “artists’ rendering.” Founder of Budsies, Alex Furmansky, was inspired by his younger sister’s love of drawing and stuffed animals. He formed Budsies on the idea that he could combine both of these things and preserve her artwork at the same time. Now his company has created and shipped more than 10,000 Budsies all over the world in just two short years!
Let’s all admit that sometimes our kids come up with some crazy drawings that don’t exactly look like real people or animals. No problem for Budsies! They have mastered the ability to scale your children’s imaginative creations into plush, works of art. Check out some of these amazing “before and after” photos demonstrating their creations:
But Budsies doesn’t stop there. They can also take your photos and selfies and create just as lovable as a design. This isn’t just for children, but for adults too! They have made it amazingly simple to submit your designs and you can do so via direct upload to their website, Budsies.com, email or even text message.
If all of these hasn’t convinced you of how great Budsies is, then you better believe they don’t stop there. Budsies is committed to serving the community and has numerous relationships with children and youth facilities, such as foster homes, children’s hospitals and foundations. All proceeds from each Budsie purchase is put back in to their efforts and outreach with these organizations.
If you’re interested in getting your own Budsie (I mean, one for your kids), then now’s the time to get ordering. Budsies usually take 3-5 weeks to create because they go through a detailed creation and quality inspection process to ensure the perfect rendition. This isn’t your garden variety stuffed animal!
