Our Story

CurlyQ Cuties on
CurlyQ Cuties was founded in January 2008 by mom entrepreneur Stephanie Estrin on a quest to create high quality imaginative toys. She started out making Monsters for her children and her friend's children. The Monsters were so well received, she decided to start a Monster-making business.

CurlyQ Cuties was originally an shop selling ready-made stuffed Monsters. After repeated requests for customized variations of her Monsters, Stephanie recognized an opportunity to provide a customer-designed made-to-order plush toy at an affordable price. The major challenge, however, was most customers wanted to see what they would receive before they placed an order. is Born
In July 2008, was launched to address this concern. Shortly thereafter, Stephanie stopped actively creating ready-made Monsters for sale on her Etsy site and focused instead on's customer-designed Monsters.

Since then, CurlyQ Cuties has added several new products (Maddie's Monster, Story's Monster, and Fairy-Teeth tooth fairy pillows) and product variations (for example, our award winning Deluxe Monsters). Several new colors, new body styles, and new feature variations have also been introduced.
