Do you have a Monet in your midst? I will venture to say that you do, and you don’t even know it. Allow your child to express his imagination through his artwork, and then transform that artwork into something special.
The Junior Monet Company was kind enough to walk me through the process of what their company has to offer. In a nutshell, the Company converts your child’s artwork into a variety of personalized keepsakes.
For the purpose of this review, I recruited the assistance of two of my grandchildren: Quinton, who is 12 and Chandler, who is 8.
This is the easiest project that you can do, and you don’t actually have to do anything but address an envelope, put a stamp on it, and place your child’s artwork in the mail. And in some cases, you don’t even need to do that! However, you will need the help of your nearest young Monet or Picasso, whether it is your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, brother, or sister, or even your neighbor’s child to draw the picture. The rest of the process is done for you.
In my situation, I was provided some materials by Junior Monet. I asked both Quinton and Chandler to draw a picture on the special paper that was provided to me. No restrictions were given at all. Neither child was limited to a particular subject in what they could draw, the colors that they were to use, or the materials used. I simply provided them with the paper, crayons, pencils and markers and asked them to draw a picture for me, and this is what they drew.
Quinton’s Drawing – Can you tell he simply loves creepy, crawly things? He’s all boy!
Chandler’s “I love you Grandpa” Drawing
Once both Quinton and Chandler had completed their pictures, I mailed both drawings back to the Company. In a few days, I received an email from Junior Monet stating that they had completed the processing of both pictures and included a link to their web site where I could access the various selections of keepsake items. At that point, I accessed their web site and began reviewing all the items available. This process itself is quite easy as you will be able to see what your finished product will look like.
I thought long and hard about which particular product to select. The Company offers cell phone cases; however, I wasn’t 100% positive which type of phone that each child is currently using, so I was able to strike that from my selection. The children are a bit old for stickers, so I was able to strike that idea, as well. Through a process of elimination for one reason or another, I decided that a canvas tote for each was the best choice. These bags are perfect for both children for school, traveling, or just carrying all their must-have (phone, computer, you-name-it) items.
What is so unique about this Company is that every product is different. Junior Monet offers Magnets, Ornaments, Tote Bags, Puzzles, Placemats, Plates, Mugs, Stickers, Cell Phone Cases, and much more including Prints and Journals.
The Company also offers an opportunity to upload your child’s drawing, if you are in a rush for a particular item; however, I wanted to experience the mail in option to see exactly how long the process took. Once you receive the specialized drawing paper, the entire process takes approximately 2 weeks; however, I am sure that the processing time is much shorter should you decide to upload your child’s artwork to the Company’s website.
What is especially nice about this Company is the fact that both friends and family can access your child’s artwork and order the keepsakes. The products are available for purchase online 24/7. Of course, you will need to provide your friends and family with the link that is provided to you. Despite the number of Junior Monet’s you have in your family, if you submit more than one child’s drawing, the Company will provide you with only one link where you can access both, or all, of the drawings that you submit, as opposed to a separate link for each drawing. This is quite a time saver in itself, as you don’t need to access the site multiple times.
Another great aspect for Junior Monet is the fact that the link is only removed from the Company’s website upon your request to do so. So, if I decide to order an item or two today, but decide to wait until closer to Christmas to order additional items, both Quinton’s and Chandler’s artwork will still be available.
The best feature about Junior Monet is that the Company offers an Easy Art Fundraising program. This is great for schools or any other organizations looking to raise funds for a various purpose. There are no order forms to contend with, you don’t have to worry about collecting the money and you aren’t responsible for the product distribution. What more could you want from a fundraiser? Make up to 30% profit for your organization with very little work on your part. Easy peasy! Access the Company’s web site for more information on fundraisers.
Every parent is proud of their children’s artwork, and every grandparent is proud to own such masterpieces. Let Junior Monet transform your children’s artwork into a special keepsake. Whether it is for a successful fundraiser or simply for your personal use, you can turn to Junior Monet for assistance. I am so glad that I found this company as I know I will be submitting lots of my grandchildren’s artwork to be changed into special keepsakes. These products also make terrific birthday and holiday gifts for friends and family, all at very reasonable prices. While this review was a bit extraordinary and out-of-the-box in the traditional sense, I enjoyed it tremendously. I am sure that you will treasure all your keepsakes from Junior Monet. Be sure to stop by today and check out all the great sales.
Oh how neat ,I am very interested in Junior Monet
What a special way to hang onto those precious things the kids draw and even write….. I’ll be checking this site out for sure, great Christmas gifts for their parents!
kids drawings are the best. just look at my refrigerator and see what i mean
I think this is a great idea like I said before and would love to try this.
I love this. Great idea!
I love the canvas tote that you chose. It not only displays your children’s artwork, it is useful & practical as well. Thank you for your review & for giving us the chance to highlight our talented children.
I love this! I think it can make stuff very personal and special. I can’t wait till my daughter starts coloring.
This is neat, my daughter isn’t old enough yet, but when she is I will have to check this out.
I think this is an amazing idea! My child loves to do artwork!! I’m very interested in this. I can only imagine the huge smile on my child’s face seeing their artwork on something!
My Children and Grandchildren are all very artistic and I love all your ideas, Thank you!
We lovE HAVING THE CHILDRENS ART WORK OVER THE YEARS TO LOOK BACK ON WHAT A GREAT IDEA THIS IS!
Two out of my three children really enjoy creating art, so this is a fantastic idea for us to keep in mind. Thanks for a great review.
I love making things with my children’s artwork on them. I have mugs, t-shirts, magnets, pretty much anything. Thank you for sharing this company, I will have to check them out.
Love it! They didnt have that many options when I was a kid so it made it harder for my parents to preserve my arts and crafts. These are great ideas and things you can keep forever,
Since I had come back to this article many times I am telling my father in law about the church doing something for sunday school. He is a pastor and he would probably get a kick out of getting the kids involved with this.
This is such a great idea! All three of my kids are artists, and they’d love to see their originals on a product!
I went and checked out the site a little bit more and love the candy jar option. Something this grandma can use to show off their art!
Those are so cute! My kids draw pictures on a daily basis and I never know what to do with them. How perfect!
I love my kids and their kids artwork. I have always saved way to many things and I have done a few things like this. They are great present and bring so many lasting memories as the children grow up way too fast
This is so neat art is sooooooooo important for a child to do.
I like that you involved them in the process. I am sure they loved seeing you proudly display what they made on something you own. Cute idea!
I love that you can take your child’s artwork and make it memorable – it is so cute and such a good idea, thanks!
Oh what a sweet idea! I want to do my grandsons first picture from pre-school.
My daughter had a fundraiser in school from a similar company & I thought it was such a neat idea. I will have to check into this for Christmas gifts for my mom & my in-laws. :0)
and they made money from you !!!
This is such a cute idea, wish I would have had this when my son was younger 🙂
Awe cute ideas!
That’s such a cool concept! I just wouldn’t have the time, money or capability to do this, so that’s great that a company found a need and filled it!
My children would like to make this activity.
I love it, a great ideal.
There’s nothing like personalized items. They are just too special
Such a sweet idea for gifts for parents and grandparents!
These artistic items are so cute. I know that some child would love to create and see their art on many forms, bags, mug, books etc. I know mine would 🙂
