Be@rbrick is a collectible toy designed and produced by a Japanese toy company. The name is derived from the fact that the figure is a cartoon-style representation of a bear. The first figure was released in 2001 as a free gift to visitors of
the World Character Convention 12 in Tokyo. Since then Bearbricks have
been released in several different sizes using a variety of materials. Many contemporary artists and designers have designed figures. Last November I discovered this Chanel figure in a shop window.
