What is a Bearbrick?
Bearbrick is a brand of collectible designer figures designed and produced by the Japanese company MediCom Toy Incorporated. They are comprised of nine parts — a head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs with joints that can move, which come in a range of materials, although most frequently plastic. The adorable figurine has become an icon in both fashion and art since it has stepped onto the scene in 2001.
