Bax Bear

Michael Zhu is the designer of the Bax Bear. In 2008 the first series has been produced by the Canadian company OSO Design House. This rather new design has become quite famous is a rather short time. In my opinion that has everything to do with their excellent marketing strategy and the well-known artists that designed a piece for the first series. The toy itself is not that original and has great similarity with the Qees.

Despite the lack of originality I believe the Bax Bear is a nice design. Especially the head has designer possibilities because of the nose, button or bump(?) on his forehead. I also like that there are numberous assescoires available like hockey sticks and snowboards.

But why is it not possible to loose the arms, legs and head from the body? For DIY this is vital. Another similarity with the Qees...
