Looking for an unique gift for the favorite child in your life, I have found the solution for you!
Budsies bring your child's drawing to life in an adorable stuffed animal.
It all started when the owner saw her much younger sister's drawings ending up in a box, but her stuffed animals remaining in a place of honor on her bed. An idea formed and the idea for Budsies arrived!
It is SUPER easy to get your own Budsie!
3 easy steps to making a Budsie:
1. Let your young artist go wild and draw/color their Budsie to be- Animals, people, or objects work equally well. Need inspiration? Take a look through the available stuffed animal Templates for some great starting patterns, like the one below.
2.Submit artwork by uploading it from your computer, or by taking a picture of the artwork with your smartphone and sending it via email or text message! Easy peasy! And then use the super simple online checkout to describe and order your Budsie stuffed animal
3. You'll receive updates via email about when your artwork is approved, the custom sewing is completed, and your new pal is shipped, with tracking, via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. The process takes about 5 weeks (ours arrived much sooner) to arrive and you'll be thrilled with the delight in your child's face!
We were able to check out the process recently- Miss Grace drew her own pony, in bright Summer colors,
as you see below!
As you can tell, they got 'Tropical Storm' down exactly! Even down to one purple and one black eye! The Budsies all come out to be about 16 in size, to allow for hugable cuteness! As you can see with Tropical Storm- she is very hugable and the perfect size!
Miss Grace LOVES her, and hasn't been far from her since she arrived. She has been showing her to everyone, about how she designed HER stuffed Budsie!
Budsies make a GREAT birthday or Christmas gift!
Check out their Facebook page for some inspiration for teens and older kids too!
And remember, every time you purchase a Budsie, you give back to KIDS- Budsies works with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Eastern Pennsylvania to sponsor Budsies for children going through cancer treatment and to host art days with sponsored Budsies for underpriveliged kids in the community. They also donate Budsies through Easter Seals of Southwestern Indiana for kids with disabilities.
