A BATHING APE®'s popular character BABY MILO® came from the distant future, looking for bananas to eat. MILO seems expressionless, timid, and a little shy, but he loves singing and dancing. Of course his favorite food is bananas. His dream is to grow a banana tree and eat all of the bananas on his own.


BE@RBRICK by MEDICOM TOY is a block figure in the form of a bear, and was introduced in 2001 on the 100th anniversary on the birth of the teddy bear, under the concept to create a "teddy bear with a digital look". Other than the nine basic parts (the head, arms, wrists, torso, waist, and legs) that compose the figure, nothing else is added, and the design is based solely on the expression of printing. Since its inception, the BE@BRICK has collaborated with numerous artists, brands, TV programs, animations, movies, and companies in both Japan and worldwide. As "Artistic Toys", the BE@RBRICK has continued to release thousands of different items to the market, gaining many fans around the world.
