What are art toys, you ask?
Art toys or designer toys according to Wikepedia are 'novelty toys and collectibles created by artists and designers, which they produce in limited editions. Artists use a variety of materials, such as ABS plastic, vinyl, wood, metal, latex, and resin. Many designer toys are plush toys. Creators often have backgrounds in graphic design, illustration or self-described low brow art; some artists have classical art and design training, while others are self-taught. The first designer toys appeared in the 1990s and their popularity continues to rise.'
This is a fair where you will get to meet all kinds of designer toys from different countries across the world.
