These super-talented artists transformed some children’s imaginary friends into real toys
Kids love to daydream, and many of them come up with imaginary friends — bright and unusual characters who will never get tired of playing. Each fictional companion is completely unique. With this in mind, the UK’s biggest advertising agency, AMV BBDO, launched a project where children were asked to draw their imaginary playmates. The most interesting characters were then carefully transformed by artists into physical toys and figurines.
Bright Side would like to share with you some of the results, so here are children with their models. Just look at that huge dinosaur! Or that adorable fox wearing glasses, or the three-eyed girl with her toy cloud! What would your imaginary friend look like?
