Baby Wananeko Archive
Posted by Leah Bayer on January 4, 2017 | No CommentsA new year means new toys! And Javier Jiménez, creator of Wananeko and Baby Wananeko, is starting 2017 off on a very good note for those of us who like both cats and toys. Which is basically all of humanity, right? This Sunday, a super-limited run of 5 hand-painted Baby Wananekos will go up in the StickUp Monsters store. Not only are these guys adorable, but by buying one you help support an awesome cause! All proceeds will go to Maullidos Invisibles, a cat welfare organization in Granada. So you get a toy kitty and help out real-life strays and sick cats! All for a mere $35. What could be better?
Posted by Leah Bayer on March 18, 2015 | No CommentsI’m sure you all remember Javier Jimenez’s Wananeko, Plastikitty’s current toy cat crush. As the funding campaign to get this little guy in soft vinyl form has gone on some awesome stretch goals have been added, like a Baby Wananeko soft vinyl figure and clear guts for the large size! Now there’s only one day left to go, and there are still lots of bonus goodies to be had. The final figure-based stretch goal is a micro Wananeko! At only 2.5″ tall, this little beast will probably still wreak havoc on your figure collection. I mean, it’s a cat. It’s what they do. And as an added bonus, once $12,500 is reached every single backer who got a Wananeko (of any size!) will receive 5 free stickers. Man, that’s like my two weaknesses. CATS AND STICKERS. So go hurry and get one before time runs out!
Posted by Leah Bayer on February 26, 2015 | No CommentsYou probably remember Javier Jimenez’ recent IndieGoGo project to get his awesome Wananeko figure in soft vinyl format. Well, the part I was most excited about was the addition of a Baby Wananeko in resin! I mean, kittens guys. I just love kittens so much. The project got funded amazingly fast, so a stretch goal was added: for $2,000 over the original goal, a sofubi Baby Wananeko would be manufactured too! Well, as you might have guessed from the title, it’s happened already. Yup, there are 21 days left to go and we’ve already had the original and stretch goal funded. I wonder if Jimenez has any other tricks up his sleeve?! If you want a Baby Wananeko, all of the original funding levels that include a sofubi Wananeko will include a bonus matching Baby Wananeko. Want something a little more special? There are ten $200 slots open that get you a custom set: one full size and one baby Wananeko, customized to your specific instructions! So go get one here.
Posted by Leah Bayer on February 17, 2015 | 3 CommentsIt’s no secret that here at Plastikitty, we love cats. Real cats, stuffed cats, toy cats. If it’s a cat, I’m gonna buy it. One of our recent favorite cat figures has been Javier Jimenez’ Wananeko, a yokai who can shapeshift parts of his body into weaponry and also is so freaking cute. However, past Wananeko releases have been resin and fairly limited, so like most resin toys it’s hard to dive into right away for newbies. But worry no more, Wananeko fans! There is now an IndieGoGo for… you guessed it, a soft vinyl version of this badass kitty. And if there’s one thing I like more than cat toys it’s sofubi cat toys, so this is great news! The rewards range from stickers to crazy customs, and there will be 3 colorways to start off: DIY, original, and a clear pink that’s exclusive to IndieGoGo. But that’s not all. You may notice that our header is not of Wananeko. Or is it?! It’s BABY WANANEKO. This resin piece is probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, and there are four different colorways you can get only through the IndieGoGo: Original, Calico, Nightshade and Ghost. I love that the eye shape changes so he goes from worried to angry. AHH, it’s so cute. Do you want one? You know you do. Head on over to IndieGoGo and show your support.
