That doll? My kid made that. Sort of.

Childs Own Studio turns children's artwork into dolls. Even ninjas.

I spent a good portion of my childhood coloring, drawing and creating and was very proud of what my mother assured me was some serious talent. I can’t even imagine how excited I would have been if she then had one of my creations turned into a doll from my very own artwork.

Child’s Own does just that in an incredibly accurate and impressive way. What started as a way to make one boy’s wildly imaginative drawings turned into this uber cool home-based business.

Their attention to detail what makes these handmade works of art so so special; if your kid’s monkey has 6 arms, heart-shaped teeth and a rocket ship belly button? Child’s Own will get the 3-D version as close to your child’s drawing as they can.

Just browse the gallery and the Child’s Own Studio Flickr page and you’ll be as amazed as I was.
