Medicom lifestyle products have recently increased in popularity following the success with their vinyl figures. Produced by the Japanese company Medicom Toy Incorporated, the Bearbrick name is the combination of the words ‘Bear’ and ‘Kubrick’. Kubrick refers not to the famous film-maker Stanley Kubrick, but to a resemblance to the human shape. The Kubrick toy was released by Medicom some time before Bearbricks that went on to combine the original Kubrick shape with bear-like features such as ears. The first Bearbrick toy was made available to the public in May of 2001, and since then many variations on the original have been created.
