Do you mind to say hello to my very first Sonny Angel?
For those who don't know anything about Sonny Angel (I kinda doubt this!), it was first created with the intention of it being a companion to the Office Ladies (OL). Originally standing at 8", the Sonny Angel figurine was meant to be placed at home, accompany the OLs upon their return from work. Gradually, it has evolved to the current popular 2" collectible figurine that can be carried to anywhere, and enjoyed from wherever the collector may venture.
The original Sonny Angel has movable arms and legs (pose-able) with soft baby-smelling skin and comes in his birthday suit! His birthday is on the 15th of May and also has become a collector's item worldwide! Sonny Angels are found in many countries worldwide, including USA, UK, France, Poland, Taiwan, South Korea, China (Hong Kong), Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia, Russia and Luxembourg!
Do you know about the unique concept of buying a Sonny Angel?
Sonny Angels are sold in a blind box with NO INDICATION of which angel is within the box. Whilst the collector may choose any of the 8 Standard or Limited Edition version/series, there's no way of knowing if the targeted angel is within the box unless the whole 12 angel set is purchased. The idea behind the blind box concept is wrapped with the element of "surprise", where the collectors will only know which angel they receive upon opening the box and sealed foil wrapper!
And, if you're lucky, you might get yourself a "Secret Angel" and/or "Robby" too! They are very rare and command a high premium; and each version/series has a different "Secret Angel" and "Robby" of its own.
Each Sonny Angel's facial feature and headgear are artistically hand-painted thus the lively expression. Every eye line, lash, eye sparkle, smile and blush is not identical. And each hairline and headgear perimeter may be slightly irregular, much like human make-up. Try observe the Sonny Angels carefully and you would notice the slight difference in each of them!
A delicious cake for fellow Sonny Angels!
The Sonny Angels' 11th birthday party was held at Sakae Sushi, Paradigm Mall this year. Oh my, you should look at the real collectors of Sonny Angels! They do really take care of their collections and doing their very best to get themselves a complete series of Sonny Angels! We also get to buy the special 11th-anniversary edition/series at a discounted price on that special day! Thank you Sonny Angel Malaysia for the fun session!!
