"This toy show is to expose a little sample of the vast network of toy makers world wide nation wide, and local from indie, small toy producers, customizers, to top designers and artist, that form part of the thread of the toy community, critter, monster, horror, surrealist, surrealist pop, and contemporary, urban art. Some of these toys are customized toys from urban vinyl toys, Kaiju inspired toys or Kaiju custom toys, Original sculpts, Original resin productions, small limited vinyl independent runs, contemporary sculptures, Plush and mash up’s.
The idea is to bring more exposure to the Chicago land area of the toy scene and the artist and also introduce more people into the movement in Chicago since there is not enough of a custom toy show scene in Chicago area." ~mentioned Emmanuel.
