Studio Makes Custom Toys From Kids’ Art

Aside from some Indian in the Cupboard level magic, nothing could have made me happier as a kid than to see real life version of my stupid doodles. Thanks to Vancouver artist Wendy Tsao, you can submit your kid’s weird drawing and a few weeks later she’ll sell you a toy version of it. She’s like a 3D printer fueled by the innocence and imagination of childhood.

I am inspired by the child’s drawing, a wonderful expression of childhood.   Typically, a drawing is sent to me, and I decide if I can work with it.  (I normally work only with children’s drawings, hand-drawn and coloured).   There may be notes included with the drawing.   I may ask for clarification about some details.   And then I get to work, in my Vancouver studio.  The machine whirs, scissors snip, needles zip, and everything gets covered in fibrefill fluff.  Details and color choices are reproduced as closely as possible, and I may use some artistic licence – unless you specifically tell me not to. When I am happy with the finished softie, I take photos of it and send them to the customer, before shipping the softie to the young artist.

So no, she won’t make dolls from my latest sketch series: Greek Gods as Erect Dicks.

Make a kid’s day at Child’s Own Studio.
