Selfie Dolls are Cloth Dolls Made From Your Photos

Selfie Dolls

Now aren’t you a doll in that photo? So why don’t you send it in and have a doll made based on the picture? That’s what Hungarian toymaker Mahinarium does and he calls them the Selfie Dolls. Each personalized doll is handmade with much input from the customer, from the materials used for the doll down to its clothing.

Every toy is made by the will of the customer, detailing the materials, accessories, size, and complexity. This way the completed doll will be custom for sure.

Selfie Toaster: Eat Your Face

Selfie Toasters

Fancy spreading some jam on your mug and eating your face every day? Sounds a bit crazy but that’s what you’ll be doing if you get one of these custom toasters from the Vermont Novelty Toaster Corp. The Selfie Toaster is essentially that: a toaster that lets you toast an imprint of your face onto every slice of bread you pop into it.

All you have to do is upload your selfie and fork over 75 bucks. Vermont will then use Photoshop and a CNC plasma cutter to “transfer” your face from the photo onto a metal plate, which is then fitted into the toaster.

Accio Dice! Harry Potter Wizard’s Monopoly

Harry Potter Monopoly

It’s taking Parker Brothers long enough to make a Harry Potter-themed edition of Monopoly, so CustomLumos decided to take matters into their own hands. The result? This awesome, one-of-a-kind Monopoly board came that both wizards and muggles can enjoy. The rules remain the same, although the entire game plays out with a touch of magic and mystique.

It starts with the packaging: instead of the usual box, the game comes in a chest instead. From the paper money and actual board itself to the cards and tokens, every little element featured in this custom-made board game has been transformed with a touch of Potter.

Hit the break to check out more pictures of the board game.

Normal Earphones Are Custom Printed To Fit Your Ears

normal-earphones

Ears are like fingerprints: no two are alike. Earphones on the other hand tend to come mass-produced in one shape only. This means you’ll either get an ok fit, or a terrible fit, but rarely will you get an exact fit. Normal Earphones hope to change all that by allowing you to make custom 3D-printed buds. Just take a picture of your ears with your smartphone, send it to the company for processing and less than 48h later they’ll be in your hands. They use “nerdalicious software and 3D printing to sculpt each one-of-a-kind pair”, while also integrating some high-end components to match their custom fit with quality sound. At $200 for the pair, we sure hope they mean that.

Because You’re Super: Personalized Superhero Action Figures

Personalised Superhero Action Figures

 

If you could be any superhero, who would you choose to be? The choices are limited when it comes to Firebox’s personalized superhero action figures, but they’re still awesome all the same.

The DIY kit contains a superhero action figure with its original head attached, epoxy putty, and a white tack. To truly make it your own, Firebox will print a model of your head in 3D and include it in the kit. All you have to do is take two pictures of your head (one front view and one side shot) and they’ll take care of the rest.
