Vinyl Toys Offer Drops of Delight Every Day
Today we’ve got a sneak peek of a brilliant new product ahead of it’s official launch. These 2.5″ collectable vinyl toys are designed by Gavin Strange. A 27 year old jack of all trades; Senior Digital Designer at Aardman Animations by day and a designer going under the alias JamFactory by night.
Designed by Gavin and produced by Hong Kong toy company ‘Crazy Label’ these droplets are now on their 2nd series. (Series 1 released in May 2008, was sold in stores all over the world, including Urban Outfitters in the US).
The 2nd series, encompasses 5 new designs; each has a unique colourway and is ‘blind boxed’ – meaning all colours are packaged in the same style box and it’s a lucky dip which design you get. The purple droplet (complete with crown) is king, and sure to be the most sought after in the collection.
The droplets are due to be launched on Saturday 6th February at the Fifty Fifty Store & Gallery in Bristol. The launch will be the first place to get your hands on one of these amazing toys. As well as promising goodie bags, drinks and cupcakes, the launch will exhibit a collection of specially customised blank droplets, including designs by toy hero Pete Fowler and animation legend Nick Park.
Following the official launch individuals can go to JamFactory website to purchase direct, or find a stockist. Trade enquiries will also be able to find full contact details.
