THE HELLO TOMORROW SERIES: Off-the-shelf toys? Make your own

London-based startup company Makielab makes these 10″ super-poseable made-on-demand action dolls with faces and features designed by you. The 3D-printed and hand-dyed makies are pretty cool — and equally impressive is Makielab’s dedication to local manufacturing. The dolls are printed and assembled in London and Amsterdam, entirely assembled in London, and even the packaging materials are sourced from within the UK. Well, now you know where to go if you want to bring your imaginary friend from childhood to life.
