About

Babies are sometimes the worst. These are the worstest babies. 

Designer toys can be described as art made in plastic. A little serious, a little silly, mostly fun but sometimes not. They are produced in limited edition runs and are designed and produced for adult sized collectors with that kid’s heart still inside them. 

This is a series of toys showing the most famous monsters in their most terrible twos. More art than toys, this series is a fun re-interpretation of a story in plastic.

Back this campaign and we’ll send you the first color way in this brand new collection by Creation Crib. As the campaign continues, we hope to add on additional items and new color ways. 

How do you get these toys?

Hit Back this Campaign and select your reward! Prices on these toys go up after the close of this campaign. Once we receive our toys, we'll load them up onto our store site at a higher price.

Toy Details

We are working with a factory in China with a long history of quality toy production. These toys are approximately 6" tall in PVC vinyl and painted. Each toy comes in a printed box and cradled in a blister. Safe and sound.

 Our Pin and Print Rewards

We are using the Risograph printing technique at a local Chicago studio to make these prints. This is not a digital print. A Risograph is printed with a stencil on a roll, one color at a time. It's like if screen printing, photocopying, and offset printing had a baby. A special baby that can produce amazing results. The below is a rough sketch of what our illustrator Michael Zhang is working on. The print will be 11"x14" on quality paper that will add a touch of fun to your wall.

Stretch Goals

We have plans for this series, with your support we can do more color ways and add the other characters we have in our nightmares. 

Meet Brian Baity aka. Creation Crib

Brian has been sculpting collectibles and toys for clients for the past 100 years. (not a vampire) (he might be a vampire, his face is ageless). As a freelancer, he has worked with some top names and worked with incredible licenses. Now, he's ready to start telling his own stories and focusing on his own designs. Daycare Dropouts is the start of a new phase in his toy designer's journey.

Brian/AKA Creation Crib has more than just a passion for toys, he can make them. When skill and care for craft come together, great things can happen. This is the start of seeing what Brian can do.

UPCOMING PROJECTS

We aren’t stopping with Daycare Dropouts, that’s for sure. There are way too many ideas and too little time. Here's a sneak peak at our next release.

This is a great start to a new adventure, thank you for your support! Stay tuned! 

- Hugs and Kisses from the Creation Crib

Risks and challenges

Producing a toy to the quality we want to achieve comes with some high costs. The costs of the molds are high and the finishing of the toy is expensive and could take longer than initially expected. We will kick and scream all we can, but production is a process and we have to respect the process. That’s a rule.

We have partnered with a reputable vendor with demonstrated history of making great toys. They might need to adjust the design to better suit the tooling, but Brian is an expert at dealing with this issue and the toys are still going to look good. We are already thrilled with our prototypes and feel confident these toys will be killer. Pinky swear.

Shipping these toys also has risks as most of the world’s oceans are filled with sea monsters. There’s a lot of mystery in that unexplored deep blue. We can only hope our offering to Poseidon, or whatever, is good enough. We are also hedging our bets and working with some good logistic agencies to manage the importation and delivery.

Our team has a combined history of 35+ years making toys. We’ve done this work for other people and companies, and now we’re doing it for ourselves.
