The concept behind BFF is the idea of “best friends forever,” almost reminiscent from the childhood in a very pure way, hence the muppet like figure that we all love and trust, featuring, of course, the trademark soft skull and crossbones and crossed-out eyes. We estimate that this fella will stand 8 inches tall, but one thing if for sure, it will steal the spotlight of his big companion .
Oh THIS TOO!
