What happens when veterans of the toy industry come together to pour their vision into a concept whose time has come? Something BIG! After watching their own kids play, David Horvath and Sun Min (award winning designers of Uglydoll) began a discussion with Klim Kozinevich (Creative Director of Bigshot Toyworks) 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. David, Sun Min and Klim wanted their first doll, and all of her friends, to feel like very real characters, complete with rich backgrounds and boundless potential. True avatars for your imagination. And with that, Yuna was born!
Yuna is the very first 10" articulated doll in an all new line called “Dream BIG Friends”. She's also the first Asian American girl to be the center of a doll line! She loves science, travel, rockets, art, design, and Korean food. Her BIG dream is to run a company designing rockets that will one day take her to Mars. With your help, she’s sure to get there.
Late last month a Kickstarter campaign was launched for Dream BIG Friends, and now we can all invite Yuna and her cat Kamata into our homes by pledging to the campaign. There’s just 10 days left and every dollar counts! So head over to the Dream BIG Friends Kickstarter campaign page and find out how you can help support this exciting endeavor.
