RastaMoon’s Impeccably Dressed Uomini for TTF
Korean artist RastaMoon is set to debut his swanky Uomini resin figures at Taipei Toy Festival (10.18 – 10.21). The figures celebrate traditional men’s fashion set against a tailor-style backdrop/concept. Each figure is meticulously assembled from individually cast components in order to create the impeccable style and detail.
We’re looking forward to learning more about the fashion-forward figures with a clever name. Uomini is both a play on uomo (‘man’ in Italian) and mini which is a nod to the toy aspect as well as a word in its own right (‘men’),

Jaime & Mimi: The Milk Deliverer Debuts at TTF 2018
HK artist Yokooong has taken her Jaime & Mimi toys and switched things up. The original soft vinyl toys feature Jaime and his small dog Mini. With the new Milk Deliverer figure, the focus is Mimi (4.65”) and her adventures as a delivery dog. Mimi is fully-realized with articulated head and hands as well as fun set of accesories including messenger bag, milk bottle, newspapers, and perhaps the best of all: a Jaime doll. Talk about trading places – fun! The accessory becomes the star and vice versa! Too bad they didn’t change it to ‘Mimi and Jaime’ :)
