When Toys Rule The World....
I got into designer toys when I went Voltage, a toy store and more in Vancouver, BC. This can lead to a dangerous habit, these toys are clever and cute and most of them can fit into yer pocket.
There are mysterious Blind Boxes that do not tell you what you get inside...difficult to make a collection but super fun to try:
One of my favorite artists call themselves Friends With You. They have designed everything from plush toys to huge parade balloons.
I am looking forward to buying one of everything that is tiny, that way i can appreciate each artist without cluttering my wee apartment. I would like to get my hands on a Yod from James Jarvis....
Also that toy from that series...uh...from that artist...in that store....dammit. Shoulda coulda woulda...they change all the time and some are no longer available. Get 'em while they're hot, or never again!
