Big Shot Toy Works need your help. Dream Big Friends is a project imagined by two friends working in the toy industry, who both oversee the creation of countless toys and collectibles of every shape and size for some of the biggest brands around.
The goal was to create a series of 10-inch-tall, articulated dolls based on characters that are as smart, funny, inquisitive and rambunctious as the kids we all know in our daily lives, and develop a story where these individuals live and grow. Out of that dream, Yuna and the Dream Big Friends were born as companions for kids all over the world.
Whilst at DesignerCon last month, we were lucky to see Yuna and her cat, Kamata, at the Big Shot Toy Works booth. Very impressive. Big Shot Toy Works are running a Kickstarter to bring Yuna to life. To help you can head over to the Kickstarter HERE and back Dream Big Friends. Plenty of rewards to satisfy your needs but you’ll be looking at $40/£26 for the reward that will include Yuna dressed in Giant Robot t-shirt, skirt, sneakers and red jacket, with shoulder bag and Kamata cat figure accessories.
