Art Of Toys is excited to have our first Designer Toy Show featuring original art from Kidrobot artist Candie Bolton and Steve Ferrera, Yosiell Lorenzo, Lyla Warrens and local talent Julie Okahara, Chris Cinder and Robert Rodriguez. To add the excitement we are introducing Kidrobot blind box toys as well as Sonny Angels.
Designer toys, also called “Art Toys”, are novelty toys and collectibles created by independent artists and designers, which they usually produce in limited editions. Artists use a variety of materials, such as ABS,plastic, vinyl, wood,metal,latex and resin and plush toys. Creators often have backgrounds in graphic design,illustrationor self-described low brow art; some artists have classical art and design training, while others are self-taught. The first designer toys appeared in the 1990s.
I have always loved this art and am so happy to include in the Art Of Toys art assortment.
