Turning kids’ art into plush toys

Child’s Own Studio started with a simple idea: to make a recognizable comfort toy for a 4 year-old boy based on his drawing. It was an idea that launched a home-based craft business. Since then, Wendy Tsao custom made a few hundred soft toys based on children’s drawings, each one as unique as the child who drew it.

Child’s Own Studio celebrates children’s art and their imagination with every handcrafted one-of-a-kind soft toy.

The child’s drawing, a wonderful expression of childhood, is the starting point of the collaborative 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.
