At Budsies HQ, we get a lot of crazy creations. Whether it’s animals, foods, flowers, or a combination of all three, we can bring it to life — and sometimes, we start to think that we’ve seen it all.

But just when it seems like we’ve reached the point where we’ve seen everything, a little artist draws us something so original that it blows our minds and reminds us just how powerful the imagination truly is. That’s the best part of Budsies. The more we can help little artists produce what appears in their imaginations, the more opportunities we create for each other to inspire, share, and smile. Here’s one of our favorite new creations: a toaster crossed with a spider, with a heart of gold. Meet Toiaster!

A Supersized Budsie standing at three feet tall, Toiaster may seem intimidating with his eight red eyes, six crawling legs, and pointy fangs. But look past his hard steel exterior, and you’ll find a good guy who just wants to help you with your problems and make the world a better place. His little artist Rad created his Toiaster as a best friend. According to him, Toiaster is a hybrid creature who loves donating to charity and (get this) will even do your taxes for you! Now that’s a serious skill in my book.

“Toiaster is one of the best friends I could ever ask for. He makes me so happy every time I see his adorable face,” said litte artist Rad. “My Budsie loves me so much and I love him too! I can’t wait to hang out with him ALL summer long!”

From watching movies to playing video games, Toiaster is Rad’s constant companion. They sleep in the same bed, where Toiaster has his own web made entirely of toast. In addition to trying to be helpful to others, Toiaster has the special power to turn any item into toast, which he loves to give to Rad and his family. And that is perhaps, one of the best ways to make the world a better place: just by giving to others. It’s that simple and delicious.
