LICENSING SHOW Day 3: Cute Stuff
On its last day, the Licensing Show at New York City’s Javitz Center was just as crowded, just as large, and just as overwhelming as it was on Day One. This time, however, I knew where I was going and what I wanted to see.
And I wanted to see cute! I’m female, damnit, and I wanted to see soft and wide-eyed and colorful. I wanted Katz Fun! The three luckiest animals in the world, designed to fit together to be even more lucky!
Or, possibly, I wanted heroes. Not dark, dour, gloomy heroes, but bright heroes. Sunny heroes. Perhaps what I wanted was Sunny Hero: Operation Sun God.
Both of these, were from Taiwan. And both were adorable.
But wait! There’s more!
From Japan, there is Kapibara. Based on a South American mammal, the animal is said to be the world’s largest rodent. Hey, it worked for Disney. The book is a hit in Japan, and has over 100 licensed products. Here, you be the judge.
