Budsies turns drawings into plushes

I have a 6 year old, wait, 6 ½ year old (that half is really important to her), and she LOVES her stuffed animals. I recently came across a company called Budsies that will take those super cute animal drawings the kiddos do and turns them into stuffed animals! There was no way we could pass up this deal in making a little monster of our own, and Fallon didn’t disappoint.

 All I had to do is show Fallon the Budsies website and she was super excited in making an animal of her own. I handed her some crayons, a piece of paper and she drew Freddie. She spared no color as you can see. I don’t know about you, but I love him. I think her drawing is super cute. We do have to remember that she is 6 years old when it comes to a drawing.

Once you have the drawing you want, you upload it to the Budsies website and follow their prompts in completing your order. They do have an option to have a sneak peak for a small extra charge. I do recommend doing this so you can see the progress of your little ones new friend.

I was really impressed on how well the communication was with Budgies. They emailed me on every step to update me on what was going on. They were very fast and it wasn’t long before Fallon had Freddie.

While I was impressed with the communication, Budsies did even better with creating Freddie. They took all the colors Fallon did and did really well with what she drew. The quality is amazing. You can tell they took pride in this business. All their products are hand made from start to finish. They pick out the fabric, colors to match and hand sew each and everything else involved. So when I say you can tell they take pride, you really can tell.

Budsies are 100% polyester hypoallergenic! They do recommend to not give the pluses to children under 3 years of age Since some toys may have small/thin fabric pieces,

Fallon wasn’t home when Freddie arrived, but I facetimed her and showed her him. When she came home the next day, the first thing she wanted to see was him, and it was so cute! She sleeps with him everynight and has him play with the rest of her stuffed animals. He really is a part of her little stuffed animal family now, it’s official.

If you have an older child or friend that is out of the stuffed animal stage, don’t worry, Budsies still has you covered. You can take a selfie (or a picture) of yourself, a friend and have a plush made to look like them, or even a loved one that has passed. How cool would that be as a gift.

Don’t let the prices intimated you, Budsies does have do 6 month interest free financing if you need it. They are higher priced, but like I said above there are very good reasons for that. These aren’t made in a factory where you can run to the store down the street. They are hand made based on a drawing or a picture, and are well worth the price. I highly recommend you consider for a great project or gift.
