Keita Takahashi and the Handicorn Design

Posted on April 13 2017

Handicorn package with sketches by Keita Takahashi
One of our favorite video game designers, Keita Takahashi ( Katamari Damacy, Wattam), discovered our Handicorn in a store and commented, "If i were a designer of this toy, i will pick left face that has a simple design rather than very detailed one." 

He probably wasn't aware of our history with the Horse Mask and Unicorn Mask, but we decided to comment back on Twitter. We told him that most unicorn products are cartoony and we wanted ours to be distinct!

He replied in good humor that he wouldn't have complained in the first place if the hooves has been detailed rather than cartoony.

 We had to finish the conversation by pointing out that the legs are so disproportionate it was impossible to do them realistically. However, all of our Handi-puppets look better in motion.

What an honor to have him comment on our product and what fun to be able to talk to him about it.  What do you think?
