Inspector Cumulus Toy


Here's Cumulus! Well, not really. This incredible virtual sculpt has been created by the brilliant Vijay Paul of Vdesign. To see the original illustration that it's based on click HERE. The next step for me now is to shop this around and see if any designer vinyl companies would be interested in producing it. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

No practical thoughts re production but we'll be a houseful of customers if you crack it.

The only toy manufacturer I know works mainly in felt, so I can't offer any thoughts in that regard. But Inspector Cumulus is awesome (he deserves his own comic) and that's a damn fine visual.

Try KIDROBOT, they do tons of vinyl toys and this seems like something that could be up their alley.

Thanks, everyone. First reactions (from retailers, manufacturers and other artists) very good. Rest assured I'll post here if there's any developments.

Lovely! Only thought is the packaging design doesn't sell the lovely Cumulus! I think a box would be nicer, with him illustrated on the front with some bold typography and colour...
