Marsham Toy Hour Season 2 Ep 14 ft Teresa Chiba x Don Kratzer x Theresa Hawkins

New week, new podcast episode! We listen to the latest episode Marsham Toy Hour whilst on our break. Season 2 Episode 14  featuring Teresa Chiba and Don Kratzer join the hosts Gary Ham and Theresa Hawkins. We had to tune in as we are fans of Teresa Chiba & Don Kratzer aka THE GLUE.

This week, Don Kratzer is back and he brings Japanese designer and illustrator, Teresa Chiba with him. We talk with Teresa about having her first toy produced by Max Toy Company, self-producing, and currently having her Inu-Harigon character in Medicom’s Vinyl Artist Gacha (VAG) series and as a Bearbrick in series 34. We discuss the motif’s that inspire the “folk toy kaiju” of Teresa’s toy designs, toy lotteries, licensing, colorways, sculpting, upcoming conventions, and much more.
