Be@rbrick: 10 down - 35 more to go....

so I have always liked these cute articulated vinyl bears from Medicom, Be@rbrick... First released in 2001 as a free gift to visitors of the World Character Convention 12 - years later and you cannot help but be overwhelmed by the number of releases - a few different sizes and lots of collaborations. Even FAKES from CHINA abounds!

I remember picking up the ones that appealed to me each and every trip to JAPAN, I bought them for my collection and as presents... even got some to go with some Susie releases.

Above Photo:SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION FENDI Be@rbrick - would get them but they are rather costly - too costly for my own good!!!

Fast forward to a couple of months back - Be@rbrick collaborated with tokidoki and the love for them once again, caught on fire. So far 4 regular sized be@rbricks X tokidoki has been released plus a couple pof 400% sized ones. All of them I had to have of course! During one of my many visits to MONSTER TAIPEI/MONSTER GEAR - a be@rbrick displayer, also made by Medicom, caught Juliana and I's attention... Of course, we each got one to properly display our collection... 'cept we did not even figure in that getting this would get us into more troubles as it houses 45 of them... 45!!! Oh well, so far I have uncovered 10 of them - 35 more to go to fill up this displayer, YOWZA!!!

That's a really cool way to display a Be@rbrick collection. I would have imagined you have a lot more than 10 of those guys! :)

Oh, you know as well as I, you will have that filled up in no time!! If I find any good ones around the house (everything is in bins right now), I'll send them your way. ;)

They are so cute! I should send you the ones I have too! It's not that I don't love them, but I just haven't had the time and energy to focus on them...and I'd rather they go to somewhere they'd be more appreciated! :)

Cute Display idea! Since we just moved into our new apt, we're downsizing our collections *sniff* but if I find any loose Be@rbricks, I too will send them your way! :D
