Luv-able and Hug-able - the popular NY holiday plush show - is returning to gallery hanahou with oodles of handmade plushies for you and yours. Spread warm holiday cheer with adorable, strange, and funny unique plush toys made by more than 50 top plush artists from around the world. The plushes will be even cuter and more affordable at this year's 3rd annual Luv-able and Hug-able, with the special theme of Medium and Mini!: toys that are either just the right size for hugging or small enough to fit in your pocket, swing from a keychain, or be worn on a pin.

The opening festivities take place on December 3rd from 6PM until 9PM. The show will them run through January 3rd, 2010.

As in previous years, gallery hanahou will also exhibit plushes by Japanese artists whose original works are rarely available in the US - this year, that also includes designer toy giants Devil Robots and noriya takeyama!
