The vinyl toy industry needs you!

The vinyl toy industry is undergoing a period of truncation. What used to be the preserve of invite-only artists is embracing cottage industry principles with a new focus on undiscovered talent. You no longer have to be an established name in order to become a collectable toy designer. Today, it only takes a good idea to see your creation brought to life through a well-targeted pitch.

Producers like Toy2R, Momiji and Kid Robot are on the lookout for new designs and readily produce work by up-and-coming artists whose ideas they think will spark the interest of collectors. And while toy designers can't expect to become super-rich on the back of it (although it can still prove to be a profitable sideline), they can expect to raise their creative profile.
