Bitty Bats Custom Dunny Series - by Tasha Zimich and Tasha Zimich are pleased to announce the release of “Bitty Bats”, a custom 3” Kidrobot Dunny vinyl toy series. Bitty Bats collection is composed of a 6 piece individual character series featuring hand sculpted and painted elements with installation display box. Pieces will be available for individual purchase October 28th retailing at 80£ through

Tasha shares her thoughts on Bitty Bats Series: “I was thrilled to be approached by Collect & Display, after following their releases & artist support efforts the last several years, and my first hope was to secure the October release spot. Halloween is my favourite holiday, so I wanted to celebrate it with festive designs that would continue to charm their adoptive homes year-round. I tailored each Bitty Bat to have its own personality and character, from cheerful to silly, solemn and dramatic. I don’t consider myself a regular sculptor, but I’m very satisfied with the magnet installation that allows them to “hang” from their little boxes if desired.”

Releasing parallel to Bitty Bats is Tasha’s newest original sculpt resin toy “Snog” in a Collect & Display exclusive Tigerseye colorway with chase variant. Sculpted by Tasha, molded and cast by colleague Deth Becomes You and then individually painted by Tasha, Snogs are her 3rd small production run resin toy release. Tigerseye Snogs will be available blind-box style in an edition of 8 pieces only on Collect & Display, releasing October 28th. Each hand-painted piece will retail for 30£.
“Snogs are definitely a passion project inspired by my own pet hedgehog, Tuttles. These tiny Snogs measure under 4.5cm/Less than 2” from nose to tail, but each hand painted shell and face is unique. Usually I use a character’s eyes to convey the most of their emotion. But, hedgehogs have soulful little button-eyes, so my Snogs appear curious, peeking out of their little shells.”

Bitty Bats & Tigerseye Snogs release for sale October 28th. For additional information & images, please contact . For more artwork & upcoming releases, follow @tashazimich . Tasha will return to Designer Con Pasadena convention November 19-20 with new Snogs, original artwork, prints and more.
