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.
