A very innovative company, Child’s Own Studio, creates soft toys based on actual kids’ drawings. What a simple but funny personalized idea.
Here are some examples:
Blue nosed and eyelashed Martian thing?
A two Legged rainbow cat…or dog…or possibly tiger
A black and blue eared Indian elephant (or possibly African)
Simply called ‘Monkey Butt’ by its creator
Would have loved to have found this site when the kids were younger – could have had some seriously messed up toys in our house !! Hehe

Here’s finally something positive to come out of the Korean Peninsular in recent days.
Great innovation to promote a movie by simply providing ‘wifi posters,’eg 8 strategically placed posters in Seoul that allowed users to access the internet when near them. I have been saying for the longest time that all interactive communications in 2013 and beyond needs to be either:
- useful, and/or
If it isn’t, then your chances of your brand being noticed are very low.
- The movie had 29% increase in traffic to its website (although I think upfront awareness for the movie is more important than site traffic personally. I would have preferred those metrics)
- Time spent on movie website increased by 500%
- In addition:
This is a very simple idea but one which provided significant added value to the consumer and likely created more ‘love marks’ for the product eg the movie.
Media is being completely redefined by technology and cultural change, which is why there is so much potential for brands with the evolution of traditional media, as well as the increase in new platforms and devices.
The four key words going forward ?
- Measure (properly!)
You get the idea! Hehe.
On this cold, snowy Montreal morning, you might need one of these. #itchyplaces !!
Quite simply my favourite internet meme of recent years. It beats cat breading and planking by far.
Basic priciple is that you have to simulate in a photo, the moment in Star Wars when Darth Vader appears to choke one of his colleagues and lift him in the air.
Here are my top 5 Vadering pics:
#5 Casual Vadering while drinking
#4 The double Vader
#3 The girlfriend Vader
#2 The kid Vader
#1 The Teacher Vader
Anyone who has kids or loves the crazy stuff kids say will love this video from Bored Shorts TV.
Toddlers reinacted the scene where they escape from the Death Star using lots of imagination and humour. The actors of Bored Shorts then performed the new scene.
Notice how Han Solo just finds anything that Chewbacca does funny !!
