Artwork to Keepsake - Budsies Toy Review and Giveaway

I first came across the concept of turning your artwork into a stuffed creation through a Budsies review from one of our favorite mom bloggers My Strange FamilyBudsies is a family-owned business that turns your kids masterpiece into a plush keepsake.
Check out the behind the scenes look of how a piece of Mermaid artwork comes to life with Budsies.

I personally have struggled with discarding all the beautiful, interesting and confusing things that my kids create but as a parent, you understand how overwhelming it can all get. Now that both kids are in Pre-K they come home daily with a drawing of some sort. I knew that before I could pick out my favorite piece of artwork, I had to order a "selfie" from Budsie of CEOJack and VPBailey. Opening the box and showing the kids was such a highlight!

After receiving our Budsies of #CEOJack and #VPBailey the kids were inseparable from them and after about three months, Jack still sleeps with it every night. I have never seen another product compete with his baby Jack blanket, so I stand impressed. He is beyond attached to his "selfie" and chooses to snuggle with it over Buzz Lightyear or Spiderman.  Bailey took to "herself" just as she would with another doll - usually inviting it to tea parties and welcoming to her doll family. 
Having such an emotional connection to an item is something that Budsies and Baby Jack strive to give our customers. By creating something that brings comfort and smiles, we are spreading love one creation at a time.
Together with Budsies, we are giving away 1 FREE Budsies creation and 1 FREE 29x19 educational blanket. We want to make sure that more kids are inspired by creating and grow up to develop innovative products.
