What do you do with all the crappy art your kids draw for you? You can hang it on the refrigerator so everyone grabbing a glass of milk can marvel at the next Picasso in the making. Or you can turn it into plush toy that they’ll play with for about 20 minutes before moving on to something else (probably to draw you more “works of art”) and forgetting all about it.

It’s a cool concept and a great gift idea – just send your kid’s latest masterpiece to Child’s Own Studio. The company will turn your child’s racing car blueprints into a plush toy. Anybody can buy him a Hot Wheels – this is a one-of-a-kind car that is perfect of the next Show-and-Tell. Child’s Own Studio started as an idea to turn a 4 year old boy’s drawing into a recognizable comfort toy, and over 200+ original creations later, it’s going strong.

Depending on the art the prices vary, but you can expect to pay about $100. You can check out some of the other creations turned to real-life toys on Child’s Own Studio’s website.

One thing’s for sure, Maddox would hate this.
