Mindzai was founded in 2008 and was born from a curious exploration into art and design. We began as a small online publication and events company interested in urban artists and tastemakers from around the world. Over time, we fell in love with the world of designer toys and the urban art culture that surrounded us.
In 2012, our online store opened to the world and we worked hard to stock the finest independent art toys from urban artists from around the globe. Since then, we've expanded to have two retail store locations in the Toronto region and have also increased our breadth of services as a toy manufacturer and distributor of designer toys and creative goods.
We aim to connect liberal arts with toy collectibles in hopes to keep the world's lively and thriving artist culture alive.
“Art-based toys are an important part of the arts community, they awaken a sense of nostalgia. Mindzai is an experience; it’s a place to indulge in childhood memorabilia, a creative outlet for up-and-coming artists, as well as a platform to discover your own personal artistic talent.” - Chris Tsang
Our own line of products can be found in our retail shops, online at Mindzai.com and at specialty retailers worldwide. Along with our own line of toys, you'll find a wide variety of designer toys in vinyl, plush and paper form!
