    that’s just stupid…As a parent, you think you’re doing this wonderful thing by paying someone gobs of money to make a plush of a drawing that took a kid 10 seconds to make. The kid will only play with the darn thing for a day and then it will be tossed into the back of some closet to be ignored forever!

    They do this as well out of glass, at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA.

    The plush, like the glass, is pretty neat – but also very adult of us to make such a literal product as what we see on the page. I remember drawing as a kid and whatever I put on the page I’m pretty sure I saw in much greater detail and refinement through my eyes, as opposed to my parents/teachers.

    I saw a piece that was exactly like this in an old Crazy mag.  At least I think it was Crazy.  It was about realistic toys that Santa would deliver to kids based on their drawings they sent in.  It was hilarious.  Musta been early 80′s.

    Al Jaffee did something similar for Mad Magazine back in 1963.

      That’s exactly the piece I was thinking of.  I was thinking it was Crazy because they tended to use photos more than MAD or Cracked.  Thanks for the link. I must have seen a re-issue or sumthin’. :)
