CryOOw!-Dolls: Review and Giveaway! Encourage The Creativity Of Your Child

Cryoow dolls - MinnesotaFromScratch.wordpress.com

I am so excited to introduce you to a company that I recently learned about called Cryoow! It is a company based in beautiful Bali that was the “brain-child” of the owners 7 year old daughter, Nora.  Cryoow! stands for “Create Your Own”. Nora asked a local tailor to create a doll from a drawing she had made and with that idea, came this wonderful business.

Kris and I had the opportunity to experience this process first hand since Waly and his staff in Bali offered to let our kiddos submit a drawing to be made into a real doll.

My daughter really enjoys drawing, coloring and painting so I knew she’d be up for this. The morning I told her the exciting news, we sat down at the table together and drew several different pictures. We had a great time inventing new pictures. After we were finished, I told my daughter to pick out which drawing she’d like to have made into a REAL doll. I scanned the picture to Cryoow! and within a few weeks, we received our awesome dolls.

The dolls came in very pretty packaging that included a fun bracelet and a certificate stating who made the doll and who the doll belonged to.

I expected the dolls to look similar to the drawings Kris and I submitted for our kids, but I had NO idea they’d be SO detailed. We were both in awe of the dolls. Our kids were very excited to receive them and the expression on their faces after opening their dolls were priceless. The Cryoow! dolls are all handmade, without machines and every single detail of the drawing is taken into consideration while making the doll. Look at the giraffe below that my daughter colored in. She colored harder with the orange crayon near the bottom of the belly and on the actual doll, there is extra stitching to depict the darker color. Now that is what I call detail! There is no room for improvement on these dolls, they are amazing.

    I learned that, depending on the dimensions, accessories your child draws can be incorporated (like the cape!).
