Toys1 >> Watch out, Mr. Potato Head, there's some new kids in town.  And they think they're haute stuff.  Visionaire, a fashion and arts publication, has released a new collaboration with urban toy creator Kidrobot: MORE TOYS.  These soft vinyl toys are released in two sets of five toys, the Blue Set, customised by the likes of Jean Galliano, Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier, YSL, and Giorgio Armani, and the Yellow Set, customised by Pucci, Comme des Garcons, Gucci, Maison Martin Margiela, and Vivienne Westwood. Each set also contains accessories these toy fashionistas wouldn't want to be caught dead without -- a cell phone, a martini glass, a camera, and a flower.  And they can even hold hands -- isn't that just so cute (and non-fashion-industry-like)? 

Maybe you think so, but I personally am not impressed.  I think they're really dumb, actually.  I mean really, who wants to pay $175 and burn some plastic (your credit card) in exchange for some more plastic (dolls)?  Not me -- my money is better spent elsewhere.  But here's my favorite part: this edition got released because the last issue, TOYS (a collaboration with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander McQueen), did so well.  I'm just wondering about two things: 1)  Who buys these things? and 2)  How did they get people like too-good-for-you Karl Lagerfeld to design a toy?  Me, I'm stumped.  You got any clue?

Note:  The limited edition sets are to be shipped late June.
