Child’s Own Studio

Cherished for a Lifetime

My children adore creating their own artwork…all kinds.  So, when one of my readers sent me a note to help me uncover a place where a child and a craft artist, together, can create a keepsake to be cherished for a lifetime…I was all over it!

My reader introduced me to Child’s Own Studio.  This Vancouver mom started with a simple idea: to make a recognizable comfort toy for a 4 year-old boy based on his drawing.

Child’s Own Studio celebrates children’s art and their imagination with every handcrafted one-of-a-kind soft toy.  How great did this giraffe come together?

The child’s drawing, a wonderful expression of childhood, is the starting point of the project. Details and color choices are reproduced as closely as possible so that the stuffed toy that arrives in the mail is immediately recognizable to the child who designed it.

It’s a fun, rewarding process, and kids love seeing their drawings come alive.

This has been such a big hit that it has expanded, you can check out the work of the talented softiemakers who have been busy making softies from children’s drawings.   These independent craft artists have their own businesses and are based in Canada, the United States, Australia, Europe and Brazil.   The name of the companies who did the work are all listed on each picture, Prices range from $40-$75. click here for their websites.
