Jellyface Designer Toy Pillows

I love designer toy pillows because they are practical, cool and so cuddly. Jellyface designs several collections of limited edition designer toys and several of them are pillow shaped.

All the toys from Jellyface have the same history. They are sea creatures who had to flea the ocean due to pollution, and are trying to find a home on dry land. They look cute, but might have a dark side…

Jellyface designer toys are 100% handmade in Italy.

Woodbees – Designer toys, collectors items and decoration for the kids room

Woodbees are colorful bees made out of wood – a product of a collaboration between the talented toy designer Pepe Hiller and the artist Lunabee (Sarah Miskelly).

Woodbees are handmade designer toys and limited edition collectors items. They’ll look amazing as decoration for the nursery, kids room or for the living room of playful adults of all ages.

Pepe Hillers has uploaded a series of inspiring images of how the Woodbees are made. A few of which can be seen in this article. Perhaps some of our readers will feel inspired to create something similar with their children after seeing these images.

The New Zealand based toy design design studio Wishbone has specialized in creating wheeled toys for kids. At this point they’ve got two wheeled toys for us; the versatile “Wishbone Flip” and the super cool “Wishbone Bike”. Both very practical, simple and aesthetic toys.

The coolest thing about the Wishbone Bike is that it is available in several limited editions which are made in collaboration with talented artists who’s artwork adorn the outward facing surfaces of the bike. The image shows the “apple-a-day bike” featuring artwork by Coralie Bickford-Smith.

Gorgeous Diecast Model Cars

What to give the boy who has everything? How about a diecast model car with lots of details?

A boy who appreciates cars, quality and details will love to receive a small replica car model of his favorite brand. Obviously we’re not going to discriminate here. If you have a girl who loves cars I’m sure she’ll appreciate a one of these cars just as much and perhaps even take better care of them as well.

Diecast Car Models have an impressive amount of models in different sizes from several car brands. It ought to be possible to find your boys or girls favorite car amongst their selection although it might take a few hours since you can easily get lost just browsing around.

 

Jason Freeny – Dissecting Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Care Bare and Raving Rabbid

Ever wonder what the likes of Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, Care Bare and Raving Rabbid would look like inside if they were alive? Or had been…

Don’t know how Jason Freeny got the idea of dissecting toys and sculpting their bones and intestines, but turns out it’s not as disgusting as it might sound at first.

Freeny really makes the most wonderfully detailed and creative “reconstructions” of toys inner parts. I’m totally blown away by his creations and I’d love to own some of his works for sure.

Heres a bunch of examples of his dissecting work. Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, My Little Pony, Raving Rabbid, Care Bare and a Rubber Duck are amongst the lucky few who have now got their inners on display.
