If your friends and family ask you why your desk is filled with a million Designer Toys all you have to do is show them this video featuring the cast of Portlandia and it will explain it all. You can thank me later.

With all of the new releases coming out this summer, it may be easy to miss what we have in store, so here’s a brief rundown of some new figures at mph!
Sonny Angel : Flower Series Blind Box by Dreams - We’ve seen them as baboons, pineapples, witches and more, and now these figures are popping up everywhere as flowers. This new series of Sonny Angels features 12 different flowers, plus a chase!
Migora Color Collection : Blind Bag by Konatsu - This is Japanese artist Konatsu’s popular Negora figure in mini form! Available blind bagged with 13 possible colorways to collect. At just under 2″ these figures are super cute and super collectable!
New Sticky Monster Lab Figures – Sticky Monster Lab, a creative studio based in Korea and founded in 2007, has a new line of figures available at mph. This studio has numerous talents, lending themselves to motion graphics, festival managing and figure fabrication. I really love their character creation and you can often see these figures as characters in their videos. Above you can find the Runner and Kibon Yellow Walkmon.
Now watch the Runner in the video below!
Donutino & Donutina by tokidoki – These sweet pups are perfect for that Kawaii collector in your life. Complete with sprinkled donut collars and made of soft fleece, you’ll be happy to make either one (or both!) a part of your home.
