Big Game in Small Pieces

with one comment

Have you ever wanted to nurture your child’s inner poacher or felt that a taxidermy animal head might be just the trick to remind you of your taxes? Japanese toy company, Takara Tomy A.R.T.S, appeals to the armchair hunter with its latest collector item, Hunting Trophy. Hunting Trophy is a series of miniature, mounted animal heads complete with horns that require snap-on assembly. Each trophy also comes with a tiny, gold sticker plaque bearing the species of your prize-packaged beast.

The refrigerator replaces the den as a showcase for the magnetically equipped creatures enabling you to display your entire plastic bestiary. Hunting Trophy continues its line with the safari-themed series, Hunting Trophy II. For the design conscious, Takara TOMY A.R.T.S. also offers neon-colored and gold gilded mounts with its Mono Color Trophy collection.

The Takara TOMY A.R.T.S. Hunting Trophy collection currently retails for about 300 yen and is sadly not available outside of Japan. Personal buying service, White Rabbit Express however specializes in shipping Japanese products virtually everywhere.

As a side note, a search for toy hunting trophies turned up a video of robotic taxidermy! I think Takara TOMY has been one-upped!
