CurlyQ Cuties is a wonderful business started by a SAHM of three that allows you to design your own monster online! You choose the colors and the body shape and details (eyes, mouth, spots) and are able to view your design before placing your order. I ordered one for Jenna and she’s completely in love. He matches the online design and drawing I made exactly. She named him Monster Monster, and he is her buddy. I love that he’s made from soft and snuggly anti-pil fleece, he’s filled with hypo-allergenic polyfil, and that he’s machine washable! He’s approximately 12 inches high and 9 inches wide (at his widest point) and he’s the perfect size for hugging.
The monsters have no attachments that could be a choking hazard and are hand-crafted in Austin, TX. Our monster arrived within one week of submitting my design at the website. I was amazed!! He arrived carefully wrapped in beautiful tissue paper in a sturdy cardboard box.
Since we placed our order, they now offer “Collectibles” that are designs and styles not offered in the made-to-order section. They’re all adorable AND affordable! Made-to-order monsters are $25 each and Collectibles are individually priced (currently ranging from $25-$35). They’re a fantastic idea for Christmas gifts!
What a great way to take the “scary” out of monsters. We figure that Monster Monster (MM) can help Jenna feel confident that monsters are fun and friendly and that any that might visit her room are certainly friends of MM!
