About BE@RBRICK

BE@RBRICK is a teddy bear-shaped figurine produced by Japanese toy company MEDICOM TOY. The figurine was released in 2001 to mark the 100th anniversary of the teddy bear, under the concept of "creating a digital image of the teddy bear”. In addition, the BE@RBRICK is created with a rule in mind, which is “designing only by printing on its 9 body parts without adding any extra element”. This guideline has distinguished BE@RBRICK from the teddy bears that everyone is familiar with, and unlike conventional figurines, it has gradually evolved into a highly acclaimed contemporary art form and has grown to become one of the world's most popular figurines with collectors from all around the world.
