Tears of Joy by Mimipong

I discovered Mimipong, a Singapore-based design collective, long before I moved to this little island. Their successful 2008 plush collection, Hug Your Sorrow, was a finalist for the then-annual design competition, NEXT BIG THING.

With Hug Your Sorrow, Ms. Mimi and Mr. Pong, art director and graphic designer, respectfully, “wanted to explore and expand upon the fundamental function of plush toys as comfort objects [that] you run to in your moments of wretchedness.”

Now, the talented twosome are back with Tears of Joy, a collection that celebrates pure bliss. A perfect gift for an engagement, wedding, baby, graduation, anniversary, or housewarming, don’t you think?

Happy 2011, new friends and old. I hope that this new year brings you boundless joy.
