Sayoko Kinoshita from the Hiroshima International Animation festival was visiting us! We will go to the festival in August too (or some of us will, whoever the lucky bastards are, I hope me!) 
Thanks to the guys at the Finnish Film Foundation for introducing us! (toys well appreciated)

Here are some pictures of our promotional toys with their new owners!

Aaron Stewart with Comb and Dog.

The whole idea of the promotional toys started when Eliza thought it would be cool to hand out toys as business cards to people we meet at festivals. Last spring,  she made a bunch of them with Elle & Senja, who are the other 2/3 of "Girls of Kalasatama".  Because everyone likes the toys, we've decided to keep it going, so now days the Girls of Kalasatama regularly surprise us with new toys to hand out to friends.  We'll keep posting pics of the toys and their new homes and owners.
