Already featured at Hong Kong’s “K11” Let’s Pop event in back in July where collectors got the chance to own the first release of Babedu. Fast forward to the present day and Karen’s Babedu-Be Safe version will make its debut for the Christmas Carnival event starting today in KKplus (an art toy store and platform) in Hong Kong this month. 

Babedu is a baby girl who never grows up.  She always pouted which makes people think that she is not happy, but actually she is eager for caring and attention.  Babedu is a big dreamer full of energy. In her imaginary world, she can do whatever and be whoever.  Close eyes and take a deep breath, enjoy a tour to the imaginary world of Babedu together. BABEDU – Be Safe Version
