Flavio Toy

September 19th, 2006


I guess I got a lil’ too much time on my hands and when that happens I start to make stuff. Sometimes it’s music, sometimes it’s a cartoon and sometimes I make toys.

For lack of something better to do, and inspired by Eric Robles’ maquette, I decided to make a Flavio toy just for the heck of it.

As we really didn’t have a lot of money growing up, my mom showed me a way to make my own toys. I have made quite a few of these over the years and I call them Bendanimals.

As you can see Flavio is more or less poseable due to the armature inside him. He’s sort of a crossbreed between a stuffed animal and a bendable toy.

I hope you like it!
