David Horvath x Sun-Min Kim x Klim Kozinevich - Dream Big Friends Kickstarter

Dream BIG Friends 02

Awhile back we briefly mentioned the Dream Big Friends project, then shrouded in secrecy, from Ugly Doll creators David Horvath, Sun-Min Kim and Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks.   Now, we’re happy to bring you a first-look at the project which seeks to provide uplifting dolls which promote curiosity, achievement, and a more realistic body image—the antidote, if you will, to the ‘All Pink, All the Time’ status quo.  

Designed as an ongoing line, Dream Big Friends will begin in mold-breaking fashion with its debut doll – Yuna (10”) and her cat, Kamata.  Perhaps the first Asian-American lead in a doll series, Yuna comes in a stylishly casual outfit—check the socks!—complete with a Giant Robot Tee, a savvy nod to the creator’s friendship with the brand, its role in promoting Ugly Dolls in the early days, and of course GR’s promotion of Asian culture.

To make this Dream a reality, the three creators have launched a Kickstarter to fund Yuna’s production.  The campaign is very straightforward with two backing levels -- $40 for one Yuna and $80 for a pair.

If you’re going to be at DesignerCon, be sure to drop by the Bigshot Toyworks booth[#901]  to meet Yuna in prototype form.
