Ciecy — A Pair of Christmas Tapoos for Toy Soul


Very much in the holiday spirit, Ciecy has created two Christmas-themed Tapoos for Toy Soul.  First up is the Let it Snow full-size Tapoo (edition of 50) decked out in the traditional red + green with some gold accents in a design that partially reveals the clear spaceship.  She also is dropping the Reindeer in Snowfield Mini Tapoo (edition of 50) which is only the second mini and follows the Milk Magazine exclusive mini which dropped about a week ago.  Both of these will be available at the IDEE Productions booth [I01] — Let it Snow on Friday and Reindeer in Snowfield on Saturday.  Happy hunting.

Chubby Toys — Banana Popo at Toy Soul


Chubby Toys’ Popo takes a different path in charming collectors looking for the next cute soft vinyl toy. We’ve all seen cute rabbits, dogs, cats and more, but a puffer fish, and one with legs?  The chubby, puffed up face is the key to artist Dee Two’s design. 

The latest version, Banana Popo is coming to Toy Soul (12.14 – 12.16) in Hong Kong.  This one just might be inspired by certain ba-nana loving ‘evil’-doers. It will be available from Toy Station’s booth.  The little teddy bear is a sweet touch.
