Designer toys, also called “Art Toys” or “Toy Art”, 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,illustration or 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.
