Pocket Pork – Series 2

Shawnimals and myplasticheart are set to get some serious porking going on with Pocket Pork series 2. Individually wrapped porks will be available from Wednesday December 6th at 12PM (EST) from myplasticheart.com or in-store at mph in NYC. Each Pocket Pork series 2 comes with a screen printed napkin, a folded insert showing all of the pork varieties, two buttons. MPH tells us: "The new line of mini plush dumplings has 6 total characters (5 + 1 rare, secret variety), individually wrapped and blind-bagged for maximum freshness! Each with a signed and numbered tag. With 150 total pieces, and some Porks more rare than others, will you get lucky and find all six?" Pork varieties are; Raw Pork (for you hardcore uncooked fans), Albino Pork (genetically modified perhaps?), Charco Pork (if you like it well done), Monster Pork (to scare the kids with), Chomp Pork (the leftovers of a very tasty pork) plus that rare secret variety. Also, there is a chance to win a GIANT PORK! If you are the lucky Pork Nugget Finder - hidden in one pork is a secret pork nugget, so let the pork squeezing commence... Better than a cheap take away any night of the week!

Grabbit – Plush

Here's the latest update on our coverage of Touma's Grabbit from Play Imaginative Past Grabbit news: Original Entry & Revised Sculpt This latest update featured the promised, plush version of Grabbit. Although the plush doesnt feature the same striking lines as Touma's vinyl pieces, it's still a nice new direction for Touma's characters to take. The new medium opens up opportunity for flexibility and a variety of versitile materials to be used to add new life to the characters. grabbitplushthumb.png click image for more grabbitplushcolorwaysthumb.png click image for all colourways Limited: 500pcs Release Date: Feb 2007 The other 3 colourways will be releasing 1 month after the original colourway released. The shoes and mouth are made of vinyl which is where extra detail can be added. Which also of course means that the trademark Touma mouths still retain their original quality instead of a stitched mouth. The plush also seems to be able to stand freely without support. Cool stuff ^-^

Neighbourhood

Neighbourhood is a new publication from the creative powers of Rinzen. The Australian design collective has stitched together artists from around the world in a collaborative toy remix. Rinzen produced a blank, featureless plush toy and artists progressively reworked the figure in a series of slice and dice fabric frenzies. Each doll was sent to four artists, each time taking the previous remix and adding or subtracting whatever their hearts desired. The results are published in the fantastic looking felt covered book. More information about the project and participating artists can be found at rmxxx. Available via victionary.
