TokyoToys is a UK retailer specialising in the sale of Anime/Manga merchandise imported from Japan. In 2005 when the company had just started up, I was approached by the owner to design a mascot for the business, and thus Coco Monkey was born!
Since then the popularity of TokyoToys skyrocketed as Coco adorned t-shirts, tote bags, mugs, and pin badges. An official plush soft toy was amongst the fan favourites of Coco products.
I designed a range of Limited Edition parody t-shirts featuring Coco dressed up in costumes from various popular franchises, which were sold in small batches. In addition to the online shop and trading at conventions, TokyoToys also have physical stores currently open in Birmingham, Glasgow and Sidcup.
