Designed in Japan, Medicom Toy’s Be@rbrick entered the world of adult Toys back in 2001.
Since then, its minimalist design has ridden the collecting wave of Streetwear fans, Sneakerheads and contemporary art lovers.
Since the early 2000s, Medicom Toy – and Bearbricks’ – stock has soared exponentially thanks to a long list of collaborations with some of the biggest names in contemporary art, fashion and design.
Some Bearbricks have reached astronomical retail figures, such as the Chanel 1000% of 2007 – sold to date for 93 thousand euros; even if not all of them are destined to touch such sums, there are several Bearbricks that significantly increase their value over time, thanks to the limited edition and the exclusive collaboration.
For those who don’t know, the iconic Japanese Bears can come in various sizes: small 100%, 200%, the medium-sized 400%, and finally, the largest size 1000%.
