Designer toys are definitely on the upswing in Taiwan. Where Taipei has the Taipei Toy Festival, the smaller southern city of Kaoshiung has The International Kaohsiung Arttoys Exhibition which opened this past Saturday and appears to be sponsored partly by the government (sweet use of tax dollars). GaryThinking (Honey B) sent us these pics from the show which include some custom Honey B’s and a shot of Devilrobots’ Smery, stinky tofu figure, in plush and vinyl/plastic. We’ll definitely try to track down more info on Smery.
