Wow, I know what I’m doing after Expression around the Clock, I’ll be heading over to The Gladstone Hotel to see the launch of the latest monsters from The Monster Factory . The Monster Factory is “a collaboration between three very good friends: Rhya Tamasauskas, Bliss Man, and Adam Dunn.” They design and craft plush monster toys. I am won over by the cuteness and ugliness of the toys. Sebastian and Roscoe are some of my favourites.
The Monster Factory is an independent toy design company run by Rhya Tamasauskas, Bliss Man and Adam Dunn. Their studio is located in Toronto, Canada where they design and hand make all their creatures. Specializing in plush toys, Monster Factory designs are distinguished by their simple shapes, clean lines and sophisticated colour palette.
Monster Factory plush characters were first introduced into the designer toy scene with the launch of their inaugural series, â€œthe Heartbreakersâ€, in November 2003. Since that time they've been busy developing more monsters, with the current roster sitting at 60 monsters from 17 different series in production.
