pup cup and little wanderer

Yoshitomo Nara, one of Japan's most popular contemporary artists, had produced a couple of very cute and serene looking wind up toys in the early 2000's. I always held off on purchasing these as they were open editions, but as the years passed they became more and more difficult to find until they finally just about disappeared.

Today I decided to do a little research and see if any websites still carried either the "Pup Cup" (pictured above) or the "Little Wanderer" (pictured below) and found that Pup Cup is still available from a limited number of retailers at a slightly inflated price. Unfortunately, however, the Little Wanderer supply seems to now be kaput! Both of these also pop up on ebay frequently, though none appear to be available at the current time.

It would be nice to see a second edition of these made, I love the soft blue and peach color palate... and the face on the Little Wanderer is so angelic that it's almost scary!

  1. Those are adorable! too pricey but that's how limited edition usually are.
