After reading the books, "I am Plastic" and "I am Plastic Too" by Paul Budnitz, I became quite fascinated by Designer toys.
Out of the many great designs, I particularly like To-Fu Oyako by Devilrobots.
Devilrobots was established in 1997 by Shinichiro Kitai (Art Director), Kenji Saito (Creative Director) and Seikou Kato; Yoshizo Yoshimura (Creative Director) and Takeshi Ikegami (Designer) joined Devilrobots when it became a limited company in 2000. They are known for creating graphics, toys, illustrations,designing and producing apparel and goods etc.
To-Fu is one of their most popular characters!
I admire the simplicity of the designs and yet it is able to capture one's attention. Simply amazing! I can even count my wife as one of their fans!
