Happy Mothers Day From Success Kid’s Mom

What makes a successful mom? For Mother’s Day this year we caught up with a mom who knows a thing or two about success. Her name is Laney Griner and she’s known for bringing Success Kid into the world. Because Mother’s Day is a special day where we recognize that special woman in our life who helped raise us, I caught up briefly with “Success Mom” to learn more about her and her son Sammy and her love for 3D printing.

1) What does being a mom on Mother’s Day mean to you? 

Sammy is such a great, fun kid. I feel fortunate to be his mother all year long.

2) How does it feel being the mom that birthed Success Kid? 
It never stops being super awesome and equally bizarre. But it’s not like he’s recognized anywhere. Not so far, anyway.
3) What does it mean for you to be able to hold the 3D printed Success Kid meme in your hands? 
I fell in love with it from the first moment I saw it on Shapeways.com and was so excited to get it in the mail. Every parent should be so lucky.
4) What does your son want to be when he grows up? (He is already a success as it is.) 
Right now, at age 7, he wants to be a painter and tattoo artist, like his dad, Justin. He’s already a pretty talented little artist.
5) What is your favorite 3D printed meme on Shapeways besides success kid?

They aren’t memes, but I love all of the skeletal ones, human and animal. The whole process (3D printing) is just so cool.
