– Whitney Matheson

The UK’s fourth largest daily newspaper was nice enough to give our Buddies a shout out:

“Do you enjoy playing with yourself? Have you always been envious of movie stars who have action figures of themselves, so they can have conversations with themselves after all their other friends have abandoned them? Help may be at hand! At last, you can get a stuffed doll made of yourself!”


ESPN Fantasy Focus Football

I Am A Stuffed Animal.com won a spot in the prestigious Man’s League by creating IAASA™ Buddies for the show’s hosts, Matthew Berry and Nate Ravtiz, and the infamous ESPN Podcast producer Pod Vader. They loved their buddies:

“I absolutely love [Little Mark]. I was a little worried that there wouldn’t be a stubble beard but that was obviously premature anxiety”
– Mark Titus

Who doesn’t love making an avatar of themselves? We love making Miis on our Wii and Sims that look like us, and now we’re thrilled to discover that we can have a real-life tangible avatar in stuffed animal form. I Am Stuffed Animal takes your picture and turns it into a cartoon caricature on a plush doll.

Stilsucht

I Am A Stuffed Animal ist so genial wie unsinnig. Man schickt ein paar Fotos von sich (oder irgendwem anders) an IAASA und dort wird dann ein Mini-Me daraus gemacht. Funktioniert entweder als perfekter Ego-Booster oder um mal etwas anderes als ein Foto zu verschenken.
