Be@rbrick Japanese Collectible Toys

22 Sep


Leave it to the Japanese to create something so simple that can get so crazy popular: Meet the Bearbrick designed and produced by the Japanese company MediCom Toy Incorporated. It’s a cartoon-style representation of a bear, plain and simple, and ready to be customized in a million ways.

But what I particularly like is the way artists and designers from around the world like Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood have gotten involved in the process with their own design takes.Β  Something for me to think about….
