Resin Mushroom Toys From TADO

Funghi mushroom toys by TADO

I love TADO [interviewed]. Their designs are cute, and yet there’s usually something a little edgy or slightly askew, even if I can’t always put my finger quite on it. Mike and Katie have announced the follow up to their resin Piggaphunts: a 4-inch resin mushroom toys in the form of a fella called Funghi.

It’s nice to see TADO’s process, and from the pictures, it looks like the mushroom toys might have been 3D-modeled. Cool! Funghi is limited to an edition of 60 pieces and 35 different colorways. Hopefully no one is trying to be a completist with these because you’re basically looking at needing half the edition. Dang!

TADO’s Funghi mushroom toys will be available tomorrow, December 16th in the TADO shop for £45 or ~ $70 USD. The Piggaphunts were sold at random, so I don’t think we’ll be able to choose specific colors. But maybe that’s OK. It’s rather like picking mushrooms in the forest: you’re never quite sure what kind of trip you’re going to have. (Kind of a psychedelic spin on Forrest Gump, isn’t it?)

These are sweet. Click through for process pics.

Oh yeah: I made a totally gratuitous gif of no relation to TADO whatsoever.
