Kids’ drawings can be difficult to decipher so we appreciate the lending hand (or artistic eye) of Tom, who turned his kids’ drawings into real-life animals with hilarious results!

You’ll love these creatures so much you’ll be wishing they weren’t just a figment of the imagination and that adding them to your cart really was an option.

Things I Have Drawn imagines a world in which the things kids draw are real. With over 818,000 people following their Instagram account, people can’t get enough of this imaginary world.

What started as a “silly family project” a few years ago between Dad Tom and his two sons Al and Dom, has since become a much larger side hustle. People all over the world submitting their kids’ drawings to be interpreted into a ‘real thing’, as well as a fancy pants Things I Have Drawn website. So cool!

Kids drawings become REAL animals!

1. How much is that noseless puppy in the window?

It’s hard to see past the large eyes and lack of nose, but it’s the smile and tongue for me. Nawww.

2. The friendliest scorpion you ever did see

The smiling assassin. Its sting will hurt like an absolute tornado – he’s cute though.

3. I need a pony

That pointy ear, the massive club hoof, the lashes… I’ll take it all!

4. Sealion, is that you?

Oh, the laughs! The teeth, the slight crossing over of the eyes, I’m kind of thankful this old mate ISN’T lurking beneath the sea. RIGHT?

5. Dog-bird?

What do you get when you cross a dog with a bird? Or perhaps paws were just too hard to draw? A startled DOG-BIRD.

6. The happy dolphin

Speaking of happy-looking creatures of the deep, perfect execution of the dolphin fin!

7. Hybrid anteater

To be honest I’m not sure – an anteater is an obvious choice, but a trap for young players to be so hasty. Perhaps a touch of a raccoon with the facial markings and as for the eight legs, well, you got me. #stumped

8. Spider pig

Sporting eight legs, a hairy body, curly tail, and a snout, hands down, this is a spider pig for sure!

9. Got milk?

Have you EVER seen a more adorable moo? The spots! She’s udderly beautiful.

10. Surprised billy goat

Just for a second, imagine heading out to a paddock to feed the goats – and being greeted by many of these wide-eyed faces. Thanks, Things I Have Drawn, it poses the question – why would anyone not want to be a farmer?!

11. Horse-meets-Mr Snuffleupagus

If we could all have our own Sesame Street favourites at home, this one might be mine. He’s a little bit horse and a little bit snuffy.

12. The no-knee frog

Jumping is for wimps. This gorgeous fellow perched on the edge of this leaf smiles perfectly for the shot. Ribbit!

13. The most handsome bird

Birds aren’t really my thing, but if they looked this stunning, I’m sure I’d be a fan! Those legs! The beady little eyes and winning smile. Bless.

14. Giraffe… I think?

One of these things is not like the other. In what could have potentially been an awkward Peppa pig moment, this giraffe sports a fabulous racing stripe as well as a rather cute face.

15. Platypus!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! This platypus will swim faster than Ian Thorpe with those fabulous flipper feet and a winning smile!
