Item Detail

Pink Chipmunk & Blue Chipmunk

This is a chipmunk whose favorite wardrobe items include a cherry blossom and acorn T-shirt. He ventures out of the forest to brave different adventures, though he comes home scratched up and dirty every time. Nevertheless, every one of his experiences is a playful memory.
I found myself immediately drawn to the old teddy bears and dolls I came across at a toy museum in London—their aged and worn appearance seemed to be living proof of the affection they had received. This became an inspiration for me to create a figure with a rustic feel. Within the work, I have vested my hope that its cherubic face can brighten your mood when you get home each day, and that it gains a sense of depth and familiarity with each passing day.
