REVIEW: Nannoo by Lillikit




Lillikit is a South Korean shop that collaborates with artists from all over the world to create interesting art and designs. They were kind enough to send me some of their new Nannoo figures

Nannoo, a kitten flying to the sky, is the creation of  Lee Seung Min, an art director for films, animation and advertising from Seoul, South Korea.  Lee, along with her ten year old son, started the design of Nannoo with the simple shape of a ball.   

Nannoo is a small sphere about the size of your hand (hands may vary, it's about the size of MY hand) with four legs, ears, a tail and an adorable cat design.  One of my favorite details is the design of the nose/mouth.  A line swoops in over the left eye curling around and joining a second line to create a smiling appearance.  Just looking at these little guys puts a smile on my face. Nannoo currently comes in five different colors, the Pastel Series, which are representative of the seasons.  Min and Lillikit have plans to release the Nannoo figures in many more fun and creative designs in the future as well as you can see below.  These toys will delight both children and adult collectors alike.
