Says designer Alessandra Lopez-Kiely of the inspiration behind the doll, "We kicked, whined and screamed [about] the crazy festivals/lectures/exhibits my mother dragged us to as kids. But now we’re blessed with a very rich appreciation for many different cultures." Her brother Kiko and her both love ninja movies (and even the really old Jackie Chan movies).
Fun fact about Alessandra? She was born the year of the monkey, which explains her love of the silly. She loves creating products that make people (especially adults) giggle!
Thanks, Julie, for the tip!
