{     Frengo     }    

Yes, yes, ok, since Friends With You/Ugly Dolls (not familiar with these words? read the interviews...) this is "techincally" not a new idea, nor there is significant innovation in the material or the concept. Nevertheless this new line of plushies is lovely and to me sits right in the middle between a real kid toy and its urban equivalent.

I am talking about Frengo, a very recent plush series completely handmade by a young creative mind located in Italy and sold via word of mouth/email only to certified foster parents. I was lucky enough to receive a Frengo doll this Christmas (courtesy of my sister, who for once had a grand idea: no clue I could be a vouched for foster parent though!) and it even came with a Doctor Jump tee for extra kicks.

The one that came out of the package was a Franky Frengo doll, the leader of this pack of wide eyed and mouthed creatures: it is super cute and cuddly and for once sure to cacht the interest of a girl. The tee, also totally handmade, is as lovely with its tragically oversized design: note that the image of this skateboarding doc is not printed, actual pieces of different fabrics are stiched on the tee to create a huge flat doll.

Each doll, tee or bag is produced in a strictly limited series of 50 and judging by the number tags I found on mine not many pieces of the first series are still available: and the website is not up yet! Therefore, be on the look for the opening of the Frengo website and try to get your little sister or girlfriend one of these: unless they are real snob nazis, they will love these! (and thanks a lot to sis who got me a good one this year!)
