Uglydoll toy design

These cuties were designed after one of my favorite toys out there these days - Uglydolls! Designed by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, the Uglydoll universe is where "ugly" means unique and different, and celebrating who you are inside and out is the new beautiful. We learned that designers are artists who work for companies to help create a product that will be produced and sold.
Kindergarteners had a great time talking about the combined shapes found in the dolls, and how each one is unique. We created multiple sketches and chose the best one for our crayon and tempera resist drawings. Thanks to Art Projects for Kids for the inspiration, and thanks to my kids Kinsey and Mak for letting us borrow your collection!
