A trio of toy industry vets - Klim Kozinevich (Bigshot Toyworks) and David Horvath + Sun Min (Uglydolls) - have teamed up for a new project they are launching through Kickstarter - Dream BIG Friends. Yuna (the first Asian-American girl to be the center of a doll line) is the very first doll in an all new line called Dream BIG Friends. She's a 10-inch tall, fully articulated doll with real fabric clothing (including a Giant Robot shirt) and accessories - including her cat Kamata.
After watching their own kids play, David Horvath and Sun Min began a discussion with Klim Kozinevich and wondered; what if there was more? The worlds of princesses and pixies, fashion models and super heroes are all fantastic, but something was missing. The trio set out to create a unique personality in a small plastic body, focusing on aspirational, inspirational and imaginative play. Something that would encourage kids around the world to embrace what makes them who and what they are, inside and out. With all that in mind, Yuna was born!
There are currently several different funding levels, but it rounds out to about a $40.00 pledge for the Yuna figure. That includes a 10" tall Yuna doll dressed in Giant Robot t-shirt, skirt, sneakers and red jacket, with a shoulder bag and Kamata cat figure. Not bad price-wise, in my opinion. That's why I went in for two of them.
This project will only be funded if at least $175,000 is pledged by Sunday, January 3rd 2016 at 2PM EST.
Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
