Have you heard of CurlyQ Cuties? If not, I’m excited to be the first to tell you about their wonderful custom made monsters! CurlyQ Cuties Monster-Maker allows you to choose exactly what features you would like your fleece plush monster have.
The company was started by Stephanie, a mom who wanted her own children to have safe toys that encouraged imaginative play and created the monsters from her own children’s descriptions and drawings. Before long she was selling them on Etsy premade and after many requests for custom orders, she decided to focus on those and created CurlyQ Cuties as a made-to-order plush business. Aren’t they adorable, colorful and just plain fun?
With 427,904,400 unique possibilities in the CurlyQ Cuties Monster-Maker it is easy to see why when I created a monster with my two year old son Lucian it wasn’t the easiest task. At any given time he would change his mind from the different features like body type, belly shape and mouth. The few things he knew he wanted for sure were an orange monster with a dark blue cyclops eye with an oval on the belly. The other options changed constantly and it did take three different sit down sessions with him to finally decide exactly what to get. He loved playing with the monster maker and checking out all the different options.
When his monster arrived in the mail Lucian was very excited. He took to it immediately which was a bit of a surprise for me since he hasn’t been attached to any stuffed animals like his younger brother Warren. It is fun for me as a mom to have him ask to take it places and to cuddle with at night. It has a firm, sturdy feel and works great as a little pillow. The quality is really fantastic. Even his little brother has taken to it and when he gets a little older I’ll let him design his own monster too!
The next day Lucian was sharing his box of raisins with his monster! I’ve never seen him interact with stuffed animals before so it is exciting to see his imagination at work!
A custom made monster is $25 while the smaller fairy-tooth plush is only $15. You can even get a premade Maddie Monster that was created by her parents in memory of Maddie Spohr to help benefit March of Dimes.
I also highly recommend following CurlyQ Cuties on twitter. They have the most original and fun tweets! I have also seen discounts on these adorable monsters so follow them so you don’t miss out!
