Kids-Did-It! Properties™ is a small California art-licensing and design studio that represents the Kids-Did-It! Designs® kids' art catalog of nearly 500 unique, charming and colorful illustrations available for licensed reproduction made by young art students, ages 3 to 14 - most created under the guidance of respected San Diego, CA artist, teacher, author and art director, Michelle Abrams.

Michelle encourages her students to take their finished artwork off the refrigerator “...enlarge it, frame it, and display it proudly around the house! Treat it as fine art.  That’s what we do!”

Kids Can Learn and Earn!

Michelle’s husband, Glenn, was inspired to collect the student’s artwork and now, in addition to the thrill and satisfaction of being published artists, more than 70 young students have earned royalties for the reproduction of their work.  Some artists have even framed their first royalty check, while others use their proceeds as extra allowance, for college savings, or to support causes important to them.

Kids-Did-It! Designs® Logo

In addition to the inspiring character of our fresh and colorful artwork, to quickly communicate the Kids-Did-It! concept to consumers on your product, packaging and promotional materials we recommend including the Kids-Did-It! Designs® logo along with our 'Learn and Earn' story.

In addition to learning the basics of art and design, each young artist represented in the Kids-Did-It! Designs® collection also earns a royalty for the licensed reproduction of their artwork.

And for that double-take, "Did kids really do that?" response, the name and age of each young artist is also available, along with our collection of model-released photography of our young artists proudly displaying their artwork.

Our designer is familiar with each image in the collections and is prepared to work with you to digitally adapt our images to any surface.  

With your letter of intent, low-resolution digital art files are also available to your creative staff to assist with early product development.


We want to work with you, therefore our reproduction fees are negotiable and are most often a share of the income earned by the Licensee from the sale of merchandise featuring the illustrations.  

A stock image, single-use fixed-fee agreement is also available.

We have contracted exclusively with each artist represented in the collection and have guaranteed them a ten percent share of any payments made to Kids-Did-It! on their behalf.

Use-rights transfer when we receive a signed Use Agreement and payment in US funds.

A R T   D E L I V E R Y  /  F I L E   T R A N S F E R S

Upon agreement, we can transfer high-resolution digital image files directly to the Licensee, or deliver them via courier.  Digital files of our promotional photography and our Kids-Did-It! Designs® retail brand logo are also available.
