Bugs and Plush at WonderCon 2012

I don’t know about anyone else that visited the WonderCon 2012, but it exceeded my expectations by far.  One of the reasons it exceeded my expectations was the number of awesome resin and vinyl vendors.  I had the opportunity to get a couple of interviews, take a lot of awesome pictures, and make new friends.  Bugs and Plush caught my eye right away.  Bugs and Plush is a Mexican born and bred company.  Instead of going to China and getting their products manufactured, Raymundo and Carlos (the artists/designers, seen with me in picture above) decided to do everything in Mexico, which is not only commendable, but it’s good all around for building up the art toy popularity there as well.  Their toys each have stories to be told, which is taken even further with the customs that they brought to display and sell at the WonderCon.  All of their customs were done by Mexican artists, which goes to show that Bugs and Plush is at the forefront of art toys, representing our neighbors to the South.  I can’t wait until the Wabbits and the other Bugs and Plush originals hit the stores in the U.S. I had the opportunity to interview Raymundo to get a little background on Bugs and Plush and ask him how he liked the Con.
