Coming October 1st to Nordstrom: tokidoki x Chooka rain boots! Thanks to Sailaja for letting me know and to Highsnobette for the photo.
Additional info about the boots from commenter Jen: “The Tokidoki Chooka boots will retail for $120. They will be sold in the US and Canada, in womens and kids sizes, with multiple prints. I believe there are two confirmed prints now, the one shown above and also a punk print with a leopard background.”
Coming in November 2008 – a 4th 2008 tokidoki bag print! Thanks to Amy for forwarding me this tidbit from Wikipedia:
In November 2008, tokidoki will release a new print with a New Year’s Eve celebration theme. The background color of the bags will be a combination of dark blue and lovely sky blue with sections of white. The print will feature all the beloved tokidoki characters ringing in the new year by toasting champagne and dancing (you can catch Bulleto dancing up a storm and Mozzarella having champagne with a banana haired cave-monkey). Brand new characters will also make their debut on the print such as baby new year, a John Travolta-like dancer with a disco ball head, an Adios-like dancer wearing a magician’s hat (where the hat is the magician), two mice dancing with one another, a cute baby blue chick popping out of a skull and a guy sporting a pair of “2009″ glasses. The print is bright, colorful and fun: tokidoki fans definitely have something wonderful to look forward to.
Hypequest has a sneak peek of the NYE print.
Coming in 2009: a new tokidoki character will be released as a vinyl toy! Faith let me know that this character was unveiled at the StrangeCo booth at San Diego Comic Con. He’s a monkey named Captain Coco and the people working the StrangeCo booth said he would be due out in 2009. Here are Faith’s pictures of him:
You can also view a video of Simone in the tokidoki studio talking about how he works and introducing the Captain Coco character on Karmaloop TV (thanks, Joslyn).
More SDCC reports and pictures + video from readers coming soon in one of my next posts!
