Meet the newest addition to our family…
Cutie the Boy Penguin.
This penguin was created solely by my little penguin loving son, Aiden.
Now let me start this post by telling you that this boy for the past few months has been really into drawing. He loves to create picture books to read and draw pictures for his brother and sister. We have a huge stash of papers under his bed compiled of drawings of creatures he loves, his family, and much more. So when I first heard of the website Budsies, I was instantly intrigued with their idea of how they are able to take a child’s artwork & bring it to life by creating a real-life plush for the child to hold and knew this is something we needed to try!
My son is a huge penguin fan. So when we talked about what he may want to create, he instantly knew that he wanted another penguin to join his little penguin collection. He spent a lot of time creating a gray penguin consisting of blue hair, an orange beak, & a blue belly button. All I had to do was take a photo of the drawing, submit it to the website Budsies, & wait while a skillful artist created his creation by hand into a stuffed animal. We waited & waited, while we knew Budsies was doing their magic. A couple weeks ago, we were surprised by a special package on the doorstep with the most adorable stuffed animal inside, Cutie the Boy Penguin. Aiden’s drawing was turned into real life & he can now hold, hug, and love the penguin that came out of his imagination.
This is truly a cherished item in Aiden’s life, because it was 100% inspired by his own imagination. If you are looking for a different gift idea or a special way to remember your child’s artwork, make sure to visit Budsies. This would make a really awesome gift idea for your child (or a special someone in your life) in these upcoming holidays, but please do get your order submissions in early because the holiday cutoff date to get your orders in is November 10th to guarantee delivery by Christmas. Make sure to follow Budsies on Facebook for special contests & ideas, as well as on their other social media: Pinterest, Instagram, & Twitter.
With three little children, we have owned a lot of toys & kid stuff over the past several years but I have to say that our Budsies creation stands out as one of the most unique & special gifts that a child can have. I have a feeling that this penguin, Cutie the Boy, will be one of those toys that will last for many years being loved & cared for by the same boy who created him. So if you are looking for a special gift for your kids that will last through the years, make sure to visit Budsies where they will bring your child’s artwork to life.
