What is Awaken the Toys?

It began with a picture my daughter created. A picture of my cat taking a dump. On my carpet.  After that there were pictures of monsters and odd things “I swear that’s you mummy! See the big round tummy??”  Kids have imaginations that run to the strange and wonderful, so I thought to myself, maybe I can bring that strange and wonderful to life.
Custom Toys – Created from children’s artwork, a way to capture their imagination. Each toy comes with its own blog post story, certificate of authentication to help them jump off the page.
Abby & Lee Collection – The heart of Awaken the Toys dedicated to my children. A combination of my own monster designs and the input of my small humans. The Abby & Lee collection continues to grow and change, so check back regularly or subscribe to the blog to keep up-to-date with all the goings on.
