If you are not familiar with the Ugly Doll phenomenon, then you are really missing out. Ugly Dolls rock for all ages.
From the creative minds of two love struck artists David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim emerge the Uglydoll family! What started as a drawing of a playful orange character known as Wage has turned into a whole new world of fun! In 2001, when David’s soon to be wife and creative partner Sun-Min had to return to Korea, he sent her many “I miss you” letters with his little Wage character drawn at the bottom.
Sun-Min sewed Wage into a push doll and sent him to David as a surprise gift. David asked Sun-Min to sew a couple more for the Giant Robot store in Los Angeles and they sold out in one day! A very excited Sun-Min sewed many more and those sold just as fast! Sun-Min and David then began to pull more characters from the Uglyverse, a universe where UGLY meant unique and special, to translate into plush Uglydolls. They both met again at their very first Uglydoll Toy Fair booth (a small 6×6 booth made of felt and wood) in New York, where they would go on to win Toy Of The Year 4 years later!
The colorful and creative look of each character will keep you captivated. Each doll tells it own unique story.
Collect them all.

It’s closing on summer and the air is getting cooler. I love this time of year. My mood or biorhythms really soar high.
For me it is time to update. Update my clothes, my home, my attitude.
We have some fun new things in the showroom.
We have moved our headquarters all to the invironments showroom. Which gives me better access to my clients and customers.
I have been focusing on greening it up with my design projects and have now finished a great “green” remodel.
Take a look at the Patton job on my website for the final shots.
