Anne Smith created her first Animated Arrival in 1972 after being unable to find a unique, affordable gift for a friend. Soon requests came in from those who had seen the original and wanted one for themselves. Over the next 30 years, thousands of original works of art have been created from her 20 copyrighted animal designs. In fact, Animated Arrivals are now being created for the children of adults who received one when they were born!
Now, with the accessibility and convenience of the internet the time seemed right to launch a web site, to make this unique artwork available to a larger audience.
If you are looking for a lasting gift, for that special baby, child or teenager. . . an Animated Arrival is the answer. With 20 designs to choose from, and an almost infinite color palette, an original work of art can be created just for you.
What Our Customers Say . . .
"Twenty-five years ago I was given one of your wonderful Animated Arrivals for my daughter. I then purchased several for my friends. Unbelievably, those babies are now having children of their own! Needless to say, I think an Animated Arrival is the perfect baby gift."

"I cannot tell you enough times, how glad I am that I can continue the tradition of sending these drawings to my nieces and nephews. Thank you for giving us the joy of remembering the birth of my niece in one of your drawings."

"Thanks so much for doing those lovely animals. My children each have one, but I won't tell you how old they are, it was quite a while ago!"

"I would appreciate if you could rush this order. The parents are leaving the area and I enjoy presenting the picture personally. In fact, I enjoy giving the picture as much as the people getting it!"
