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 plasticvinylwoodmetallatex, and resin. Many designer toys are plush toys. Creators often have backgrounds in graphic designillustration 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.'
