Last week the custom bowls I ordered for E and some of his cousins came from Olliegraphic! I love how they turned out.
They're normally $21 a piece + shipping but I had snagged some discount vouchers at Zulily which brought them into niece-and-nephew-Christmas-present range (we have a lot of them). I still have one voucher left which I'm going to use to order Mimi a bowl, but I'm holding off until we have a better idea of what color the little baldie's hair is going to be. :)
If you're interested in ordering, there are a few things you should know. The bowls are dishwasher-safe but not microwave-safe which makes them great for cereal but bad for, um, foods you might want to microwave. The custom plates, which I assume you also can't put in the microwave, might be more inconvenient.
Also, I found the skin tones to be a little lighter than they looked on my screen. I picked the lightest shade ("fair") for E and the next darkest shade ("light") for his half-Korean cousins but with them side by side I have a hard them telling the difference and while they look super cute I think the next shade darker would have been better.
All and all, I'm really happy with how the bowls turned out and can't wait to send them to my nieces and nephew. As gifts go, they're cute and a little out-of-the-ordinary. Since they're custom-made it takes about 3-4 weeks to receive your order so don't procrastinate if you're want to give them as Christmas gifts.
