South Florida Company Turns Kids’ Artworks into Toys

A company from South Florida called Budsies turns children’s drawings into real-life toys. They are specialized in creating custom plush toys based on drawings or photos their clients provide.

The unique company was founded by Alex Furmansky back in 2013, and by now has manufactured over 77,000 toys for just as many happy kids around the world.

Furmansky came up with the idea for Budsies while watching his little sister grow up (he’s 16 years older than her). He thought it was a shame that her childhood drawings were simply forgotten over time and asked himself: “What if I could turn a drawing into a stuffed animal friend that would last forever?”
