Crayon Creatures is a service that turns kids drawings into 3D printed figurines. Using a custom digitalization process and a high-end 3D printer, Crayon Creatures can deliver an awesome reward for your child’s creativity.
Think “Where the Wild Things Are” meets 3D printing. The service writes on its about page:
Children drawings are weird and beautiful.
Kids produce an immense amount of drawings that populate fridges, living rooms and workspaces of parents, family & friends.
Those drawings are amazing, We love them.
Here you can turn those drawings into volumetric figurines.
Nice looking objects that will decorate your home and office with a colorful touch of wild creativity.
We will bring to life the kid’s artwork by modeling a digital sculpture and turning it into a real object using 3D Printing technology.
Below is a graphic illustration the transition from paper drawing to sandstone figurine.
The end result looks amazing in the photographs provided by Crayon Creatures, which was not surprising once we learned that the service was created by design studio cunicode.
One thing that might be surprising is the price. Each figurine costs €99 plus €15 shipping. That’s definitely expensive for a doodle. But just imagine how happy it could make your child.

Artist Micah Ganske uses 3D printing to design elaborate sculptures that are incredibly detailed and nearly impossible to create using traditional methods. He says of his craft:
My sculptures are designed digitally and produced using a MakerBot 3D printer. Just as important to me as the amazing results that can be achieved with this exciting technology, is what it represents as a forward-looking technology. The dream of being able to replicate objects has always been a fixture of science fiction and I whole-heartedly embrace it as a way to create impossible artworks.
Here are some of his works:
“Industrial Ring Habitat”, Extruded Polymer, 18″x18″x5″
“Colette”, Extruded Polymer, 14″x12″x9″
Star Trek inspired- “James Tiberius Kirk #2″, Extruded Polymer, 4.5″x5″x4″
