This cute bear comes with a twist of black humor since he can take off his own head. Behind this cute and unexpected bear, the artist communicates his message “you control everything, be strong-willed and don’t be controlled by others or just follow what others expect you to do.”
I’m not sure about that message but the character is cute and very Tokyoish. The brand offers a wide range of products from T-shirts to stuffed animals, Iphone cases, key chains, tote bags and more.
They also have special items produced in collaboration with Japanese artists and designers. Take a look at their website to check out these projects.
I’d like to thank Control Bear’s staff that kindly let me shoot inside their cool store… ありがとうございます!!
