According to Wikipedia, the term Designer Toys is used to describe a toy or other collectible work of art made in limited quantities, usually by designers or graphic artists. The most common materials used to manufacture these toys are vinyl and plastic. Plush dolls are also a frequent designer toy expression medium. Metal, wood and cloth are occasionaly used.
These toys are consumed predominantly adults and very rarely by kids due high prices and the lack of a naive aspect.
Sometimes, a designer toy is produced in an all white version just to let designers and artists create their own exclusive version of the toy, just like a work of art. These versions are usually very expensive for a toy.
This list gathers a sample of some of the most famous designer toys manufacturers. Also, at the end of this article, you will find an useful list of shops, designers and other designer toys resources.
