Food and Toys always a sure bet and last year the South Koreans caught our attention with their simplistic and character-based designs. AVO Friends ticked all the right boxes for us when they showcased at ATC. Bingo Toys had one of the characters AVO, released back in June but sadly they all snapped up pretty quickly and too late for us to pull the trigger. These adorable fruit n veg come with a playful storyline and Appie, Bana and Onie join AVO on a world of adventures. Each one features a sticker that fruit/vegetables have, and the stickers resemble a backstory. Fast forward to 2019 and at Thailand Toy Expo we were surprised to see the prototypes of the VINYL editions of AVO Friends at ToyZero Plus booth giving us hope of owning AVO Friends! Now with Taipei Toy Festival 2019 (TTF) just weeks away, you can be sure they will make an appearance
Can you imagine different kinds of fruit can become good friends with each other? TOYZEROPLUS collaborate with Korean brand “AVOFRIENDS”, and will bring you adorable series in the upcoming Taipei Toy Festival 2019(TTF)
We love how AVO Friends have turned out from 2D to resin art and now VINYL toy collectables. The paintwork and casting look near perfect. We can see AVO Friends appeal to a wider audience too especially for kids.
