Crayon Creatures creates bespoke objects from colorful and abstract sketches.

If a kid’s drawing is good enough for the fridge, then it’s probably also worth making it into a sculpture than can be displayed on desks and shelves. For 99 Euros, Crayon Creatures will be able to create bespoke figurines based on a child’s drawings.

The company launched last week and has already gained the attention of enthused parents worldwide. Crayon Creatures will take any 2D drawing, model it on a software, and produce it using a 3D printer. As each figurine is personalized, the whole process can take up to three weeks.

The idea behind Crayon Creatures reminds us of Child’s Own Studio, where a kid’s hand drawn character is made into a stuffed toy.

With 3D printers becoming more common and cheaper to obtain, a lot of other similar concepts have popped up, and not just for children. As The Verge notes, there’s Printcraft that lets Minecraft players turn their designs into 3D printable files, and Doodle3D software that creates 3D versions of simple line drawings.

Take a look at the creations that have been produced by Crayon Creatures in the gallery below:
