Bossy Bear is more demanding than ever! More facial variants and colorways will soon be available. Be sure to provide a lot of shelf space!

These will be debuting at the Taipei Toy Festival this July 2009.

Chilly Chilly Ice-bat

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

I just got this really fun book. It doesn’t look like a picture book at first since it doesn’t have a title at the front or at the spine, it more looks like a journal.

"It’s summer in the Uglyverse, and Wage and Babo’s air conditioner has broken down, so they head to Ox and Wedgehead’s Air Conditioner Emporium, where the only cooling mechanism they can afford is an old fashioned ice-box. They bring it home, and soon realize they are in for more of a stew than they bargained for when they find little Ice-Bat living inside! Since everything he touches turns to ice, Wage and Babo’s apartment cools off in no time.But when word gets out, greedy Ox and Wedgehead can’t believe they sold Ice-Bat for only five dollars. They decide they want him for the Air Conditioner Emporium."

The story is simple yet fun. The illustrations are really funny and you’ll see how some of the Uglydolls live their lives.

These Dehara customs were released in Japan at the Subcarism Tokyo show which started last May 29, 2009. Only 25 pieces each were made. Just like the green and black  Menta Ice-bats, these also came with a special custom box.

I just received my set from the post this afternoon. They sure arrived fast!
