I was delighted when Karon White, maker of DoodleHugs, agreed to provide me with a sample of her work in exchange for an honest review. Even better, she agreed to provide one for one of my lucky readers! This is one of the best gift ideas I have seen for creative children in a long time. They also make great commemorative gifts for kids heading off to college or for grandparents and parents remembering the younger years!
What? You’ve not heard of DoodleHugs?
Well, let me introduce you to Star. Star is a delightful family character that has been around for years. Sadly, Star has been forced to live a strictly crayon based two-dimensional life. That is until Karon came along and turned Star into an adorable, soft, cuddly – you guessed it – DoodleHug!
The 3 dimensional stuffed Star is amazing. She is extremely well made with exquisite detail mirroring every aspect of her two dimensional self. She is incredibly huggable and even the adults in the house like to give her a squeeze now and then
As parents we collect numerous drawings throughout our child’s lives. They hang on the refrigerator, in our offices, and are sent in envelopes to grandparents. Some of us, overwhelmed with the shear number of drawings, have started taking digital pictures and turning their works of art into photo books. Karon offers an amazing alternative to bring your child’s drawing to life! Not only is the idea brilliant, but Karon’s craftsmanship is top notch!
Here’s a little more about Karon:
Your family too can have a DoodleHug! Simply upload a picture of a drawing by the talented child artist in your family and Karon can provide you with a quote for creating a stuffed version of your child’s vision. Talk about a wonderful way to encourage and support your child’s imagination! Karon will even incorporate a favorite piece of cloth or fabric into the stuffed animal if possible when requested.
If you want to see more of Karon’s amazing creations check out her gallery. Pricing starts at $65 and varies depending on the requested size of the toy, complexity of the drawing, and any requested special instructions. Delivery typically takes 2 to 6 weeks, but rush orders may be available.
