Brian Lattke is a designer toy collector, designer and concept artist who put together this amazing wooden toy, the Mimushi. Whereas vinyl toys are pressed pieces pulled together on an assembly line and sent out en masse, the Mimushi is a meticulous hand carved sumo wrestler figure made of wood. Lattke estimates that due to the effort put into each toy, only about 80 are produced each month, with only 119 produced so far. This kind of toy is a real collectible and anybody who loves designer toys ought to seriously consider picking up this example of craftsmanship.
