Tobey — 'You Will Not Certainly Die' for Beijing Toy Show


Korean artist tObey will debut his new You Will Not Certainly Die resin toy at Beijing Toy Show in a nearly monochromatic edition.  Inspired by the biblical passage that describes the temptation of the forbidden fruit, the piece features a rather large snake encircling a woman about to take another bite. The visually striking piece carries tObey's signature aesthetic and continues his efforts to push the technical limits of the medium. No word yet on pricing/booth info.

Toy Zero+ x AAAZ — Robber Baby for BTS (8.16 - 8.18)


For Beijing Toy Show, Toy Zero+ will release Robber Baby by AAAZ.  As his 'wanted' poster states, this new edition of PP Baby may be cute, but he's also 'extremely dangerous'.  Robber Baby features a monochromatic design—all the better to blend into the shadows—and comes with an axe accessory. The black smudges on his cheeks and nose add nicely to the concept. 

Robber Baby will be available from Toy Zero+'s BTS booth [A78], as will all of their other forthcoming releases.

Fluffy House x Amanda Visell Series Debuts at BTS (8.16 - 8.18)


First shown as protos at Thailand Toy Expo (which we somehow missed…), the new Fluffy House x Amanda Visell Series figures are set to debut at Beijing Toy Show (8.16 - 8.18).  The new figures feature Amanda's take on Fluffy House's popular characters with a seated Mr. White Cloud (5") a mini Little Raindrop companion.   The vinyl figure set will be available in three editions: Cloudy Day, Black Cloud and Rain x Shine.  From the sculpts to the deco, including a nice rendition of Amanda's dry brush style, the new figures look to be excellent crossovers—blending both aesthetics together nicely.

The new Fluffy House x AV figures will be available at the Fluffy House BTS booth [A03] for 399 RMB each.  If you can't make it to Beijing, Fluffy House will be releasing them worldwide from their web shop for $55 each on Monday, August 19th.

Beijing Toy Show 2019


The wondrous, worldwide art toy convention schedule never seems to slow down or disappoint.  Up next is Beijing Toy Show which will be held on August 16 through the 18th (Friday - Sunday) this year. One of the premier art toy shows, BTS is organized by China's Pop Mart which also puts on Shanghai Toy Show in the Spring (April).  One notable change for BTS 2019 is a new venue, the China International Exhibition Center, which is conveniently located near the Beijing Capital  International Airport.

This year's flier features the new Robo P toy from HK artist Pucky—who also graced the STS 2019 flier.  Robo P will debut at BTS and will come in four versions: Red, Teal, Black (chase) and the Silver (flier).
