ToyCon hits the UK for the first time in 2013.

You read it right folks... the UK is finally getting their our designer toy convention, and it's about time if you ask me! The talent pool runs deep over there with not only artists, but with customizers, designers, shops, and everything else that would make for a great convention! That being said three Designer Toy fans Jonjo    Glynn, Ben Hart and Barry Darnell have announced the launch of the UKs first ever designer toy convention...  'ToyCon UK'. Taking place, a year from today, on Saturday, April 6th 2013 at Baden Powell house in Kensington, the event will bring together the UKs finest. Exhibitors already confirmed include: A Little Stranger, Cris Rose, Doktor A,, Hang Gang, Lunabee , Jon-Paul Kaiser, Matt "Lunartik" Jones, Mintyfresh, TADO, Triclops, The Tarantulas, Squink, Ume Toys, and Unbox Industries! So you may ask, how does this effect us over here, you know - across the pond... well, you have an entire year to start saving money for travel, that's how :-) and just like other conventions, they plan on having workshops, prize giveaways, live painting, show exclusives and a whole plethora of artist signings giving fans the chance to meet their favorites. If you are interested in exhibiting, you should email for details, and if you want to stay up to date with all the happenings, follow ToyCon UK via TwitterFacebook, and their official site! I'm really excited!!!!
