Shidonni’s One-of-a-Kind

Once upon a time, some moms actually knew how to sew. And sew they would. Shirts. Pants. Dresses. Unfortunately, some of us still have the pictures – and the emotional scars from the teasing – to prove it.

Lucky for your kids, aside from the odd knit accessory, you won’t be outfitting them in any one-of-a-kind originals. Then again, neither will you be turning their drawings into unique plush toys. Now, how ever will they learn that dreams really can come true? is how. The site allows kids to draw any character they want and send it into a virtual world of make believe. If you want, they’ll even turn this vision into a real life plush toy that your little Maurice Sendak will not soon forget.
