Up Up Away Kyoot by I Break Toys - A Designer Toy Collective Production
“Up Up Away Kyoot” is a self-appointed super hero fighting for all things cute. With a homemade costume, a K sewn on his chest, he climbed up onto the biggest box he could find, and blew the biggest bubble he could blow. All in the hopes that he would take off into the sky in search of action and adventure.
Created by Artist Lisa Rae Hansen aka I Break Toys - http://www.ibreaktoys.com/ - Up Up Away Kyoot is 4 " tall on his own but a full 7" once perched upon his trusty box. The original resin is shown below and this Vinyl reproduction will be an exact replica. There will be a Kickstarter exclusive colorway in Green/Black and additional colorways announced as the campaign progresses.
Both Lisa & The Designer Toy Collective are incredibly excited about this project and are very confident in our ability to bring it to life. All we need is help from you to get started!
The Designer Toy Collective (DTC) is an incubator for designer toys. Designer Toy Collective has the strength and resources of six brands vs just one. Our mission is to simplify the process in order to give independent artists the opportunity to get their toys produced. No politics, no corporate interest. Just nice people helping amazing artists make great toys!
While this is our first project as the DTC, individually two of our six members have produced vinyl toys overseas. Happy Panda Toys has produced 4 editions of the Grim Sheep figure by Grimsheep, and the Poison Sweet by Yosiell Lorenzo. Martian Toys has produced the Abominable Snow Cone by Jason Limon, which earned the Toy of the Year Award in 2016. Most recently Martian Toys has also partnered with artists Quiccs and Nicky Davis for additional production pieces.
We are honored to work with I Break Toys (Lisa Rae Hansen)
Hello! I'm Lisa Rae Hansen and I make character driven art. I grew up in the 80's playing with Star Wars toys, Masters of the Universe figures and watching lots of cartoons and movies. I have always been driven to create other worldly characters. I have kind of grown up but certainly never grown out of toys.
I'm really excited to present this Kickstarter along with The Designer Toy Collective and hope you can help us make Kyoot's dream come true, to become a real vinyl toy!
Risks and challenges
Regardless of our collective years of experience, there is always the risk of delays in overseas production or shipping. However, we have prepared for as many pitfalls as possible and built in enough safety netting to handle any uncertainties that may come up. In addition, DTC has the combined strength and resources of six brands working together towards a single goal. We believe in up-to-date communication, because as retailers we understand the importance of making you (our amazing customers) very happy. Lastly, with this our inaugural Kickstarter project we are highly motivated to deliver a successful campaign and a great product!
