A couple of weeks ago I had the most unique opportunity. I had the chance to sit down at the computer with my daughter and build a friend on a website called Happy Toy Machine.
She was able to start by picking what type of friend she would like; bear, puppy, bunny, monster, are a few among the choices. Once she chose her critter (she picked a kitty cat) she then got to completely customize it. She picked the colors for the feet, legs, hands, stomach, head, tail.. the whole nine yards. She decided that she wanted to add wings and she wanted her name on the front. She even picked what kind of eye and the color of them. From head to toe this friend was completely created by her.
We had the best time building her friend from scratch. My daughter new exactly what she wanted in terms of colors and designs. She went back and changed a few things, but overall she went with her first instincts. She loved seeing her creation coming to life right in front of her eyes.
I didn't tell my daughter that her creation was truly going to come to life. I decided that it would be a really fun surprise for her! So I placed my order for her kitty cat and just a few days later (it was really fast shipping time) her friend arrived on our door step. I let her open the box and her face lit up as soon as she realized what was inside. She remembered making the kitty cat on the computer and was beyond excited. It is now one of her treasured friends and sleeps with her every night.
I was really impressed with this entire process. Designing the toy was very kid friendly with a large display and easy to understand options. My daughter is only 2 and a half, but she told me exactly what she wanted to do... so I can only imagine how much fun it would be for kids who are a little more independent with the computer. Check out was quick and easy and the shipping shocked me with how speedy it was for a custom made toy! The toy itself is very well made. It's very soft and cuddly and is made in the USA!
I would highly recommend Happy Toy Machine for a really fun and unique experience. Your child has the opportunity to create their very own toy just how they want it. It's a keepsake for sure! I am already planning to do this again with my daughter.
