Always on the lookout for toys and crafts which are design-friendly, i constantly prowl the virtual world for inspired finds which will make the designer and mother in me very happy. My husband often seriously jokes about my mad desire for everything we buy, everywhere we eat, everyplace we visit, to be worshiping some greater design deity otherwise i just cant stomach it.

This next find is such a simple yet brilliant idea. In her own words, “Childs Own started with a simple idea: to make a recognizable comfort toy for a 4 year-old boy based on his drawing. It was an idea that launched my home-based craft business. Since then, I’ve custom made a few hundred soft toys based on children’s drawings, each one as unique as the child who drew it.”
