Introducing TADO's new toy series: Panda Otaku!

TADO joins forces with wood-carver Nick Hunter to create the first in a new series of toy releases. Fall in love with this little guy!

Tado Panda Otaku

Meet Jerry; a take-away delivery driver, social recluse and obsessive otaku.

We're huge fans of design duo TADO here at Creative Bloq. After our in-depth interview with them last year, the makers of the Comic Relief DiNOSE collection continue to impress us with their cute creations. Here, they've joined creative forces with wood-carver Nick Hunter to create the first in a new series of releases called Panda Otaku.

Panda Otaku is a new long-term narrative project by TADO that will follow the adventures and misadventures of Jerry; take-away delivery driver, social recluse, and obsessive otaku.

The first release in the series is the Panda Otaku Vol.1 'Au Naturel' edition - a gorgeous 6.5in tall, hand-carved solid wood panda that comes with two cameras (lucky dip of Polaroid, Leica, Rolleiflex or SLR versions), as well as a miniature 'gentlemens comic/magazine'.

Individual designs

Each figure is individual, and all slightly different. They're finished with a coat of protective beeswax and the packaging design is a spectacular laser-etched comic shop display box. Five of these first edition pandas will be available at the Toycon for £80 each.

Not attending? Fear not! There will be a very limited number available to pre-order via the TADOShop site after the Toycon event. We suggest you keep your fingers at the ready though, as these cuties are sure to be snapped up in a heartbeat.
