Taipei Toy Festival (7.7 – 7.10)

001-TTF2011 Poster(s)

Summer is the season of big toy conventions.  While SDCC gets most of the shine and attention, Taipei Toy Festival is noteworthy for its focus on Asian artists and companies and almost complete devotion to vinyl toys as opposed to pop culture as a whole. This year’s show gets started on July 7th and runs through July 10th @ the Huashan Culture Park in Taipei – a renovated factory complex now used for arts and culture events.  Organized by Taiwanese toy brand Monster Taipei, the show is one of the best places to meet artists from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan. TTF is also noteworthy in that seemingly half of the attendees are female.  Strange but true (and definitely welcome).

It’s a fun show and I’ve enjoyed the experience each of the four years I’ve been lucky enough to attend. Hopefully I’ll be able to make it #5 next year.
