Kids baffle me with their creativity.  They draw their crazy creatures that end up living on the fridge, but what if you could turn the creatures into unique stuffed animals?

I know my kids have all had imaginary pets and creatures that they have loved and drawn over and over again.  Imagine surprising them with the real thing!  Now Mr. Snort can be touchable and huggable!


Budsies take a drawing, sketch, illustration or photo and transforms it into a one of a kind fluffy companion.  These creatures are incredibly well-made and will last a long time.  When your kids have an awesome imagination, why spend all of your money on licensed stuffed animal when any creature they come up with is way better.  Plus, how cool is it to have one of your creations turned into a unique stuffed animal?!

How it Works:

-Take a photo of your drawing, sculpture or cartoon character

-Send the photo in

-The Budsies team will hand-sew every detail of your creation and send you updates along the way


These folks don’t only cater to your kid’s drawings, they make Selfies and Petsies, too!  With Selfies, send in a photo of yourself to get a stuffed animal version made of yourself or someone you love.  These are great for grandparents to give to grandkids who live far away, or for parents who are in the armed forces.

Petsies is the same concept with your pet or an animal you wish was your pet.  Whether it’s a pet sloth, pet tarantula, or Fido, send in the photos and have your Petsies made.

Promo Code:

Usually Budsies are $89 for a 16″ Budsie which is a pretty great deal for a custom, handmade plush toy, but for the next week you can use the code SouthernSavers20 to get 20% off through March 7th.  This code is rare and we don’t normally see Budsies discounted this much, so make sure you take advantage of it while it’s available.

One Southern Savers reader is going to win a Budsie of their very own.

To Enter:

  1. Share a picture of the creation you want to turn into a Budsie
  2. Follow and Tag @Budsies and @SouthernSavers
  3. Mention #SSBudsiesGiveaway in the comments of your picture to be entered

Don’t worry it’s not an art competition, I’ll randomly pick one picture to win their very own budsie creation.
