I missed last year’s convention and I’m glad I made it for the preview this time round!
Yes! I’m talking about Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention! I was expecting a little more then what I saw, but still it was good! Might pop by over the weekend to get more toys if I’m in the area.
Above are things I bought and got from the convention. If I had any more cash with me, I might end up with more! I am very very weak at cute and photograph-able toys!
Let me give you a quick rundown on some of the exhibitors at Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention. Do note that I am only sharing those that interest me, there are much more to see and drool for.
First up, The Dooodolls from Malaysia.
Created by Darren Chen, a graphic designer by day and moonlights as a yoga teacher by night. Dooodolls started from his love of drawing; a passion so great that he wanted to bring his creations to live, and to share them with friends and loved ones.
I love the touch and feel of Dooodolls. Made from fine Softlon, the plushies are sooo huggable and ohhh-sooo-nice to touch! I loveee it! If that big red fellow a.k.a. Reddish was available for sale at $60, I would have brought it home immediately! Sadly, it was not for sale. And $60 was the price of a 24-inch plush. The yellow fellow a.k.a. Missy Micey is from the series of horoscope collection. Yap, that’s for my zodiac. She is a protector of Mother Nature and all things living. Sounds like a cancerian alright!
Go check Dooodolls out at Booth C05.
Next, there’s this group of young and cheerful team from 2:Spot Studio.
2:Spot Studio is from Bangkok, Thailand. Their design philosohy is to make emotional character brand that kids will understand and love at first sight. They have five different characters under their belt and my favorite among them is Bloody Bunny!
Based on a short animation, Bloody Bunny is a discarded bunny doll who comes to life to avenge for its long lost owner. The story is set in a dark gothic world where dolls are living creatures with good and evil purposes.
I forgot to ask how much the price for Bloody Bunny figurine! Now looking at the photo, I am tempted to bring one home! Only bought the keyring and a purse with Bloody Bunny on it.
2:Spot Studio is exhibiting at Booth D06.
The next one shouldn’t be unfamiliar to the general public here in Singapore. You see this piece of white tofu everywhere, even in your wet market!
These cute To-Fu and many other characters are available at Play Imaginative (pi.) booth located at the extreme right side of the convention hall, J11. I was eyeing on the 4-inch baby To-Fu which was selling at $20. Good thing my eyes darted fast enough to spot the membership recruitment counter for pi. For $20 sign-up fee, I’ll get Baby To-Fu, a Strawberry To-Fu notebook and my choice of membership card design for pi. More value for money lah! So now, I’ll get 10% discount at Play imaginative store at Iluma. This is NOT a good sign! *looks at wallet*
Before I left the convention, I exchanged $10 of one-dollar coins and spinned for the To-Fu Oyako magnets. I should have spinned till I get the full set! Now I’ve got 4 from the series of 7. *heart itchy*
That’s all I’m going to share with you! Go check out the convention yourself this weekend! Bring lots of CASH yio! Muahahaha!
Ending this post with more photos from the show…
Have fun shopping!
