The character: Toad
The range: Founders edition. This very special limited edition run of t-shirts are the final spec from the manufacturer and we are giving our fans the chance to own a piece of Player history. Each tee is the result of almost 7 years of development from scratch being custom made from the bottom up. The founder editions each come with a signed certificate of authenticity from the artist and are instant collectors items. With less than 10 available of each design, and some designs and features never to be repeated in their present form – we wanted our loyal fans who have stuck with us on this journey to own a unique part of the Player history.
The design: Toad is the loyal attendant of Princess Peach. In this design we have imagined Toad doing what he loves, and becoming the head of a tourist agency that offers tours of Mushroom Kingdom. In the design you can see some of the familiar sights of Mushroom Kingdom like the Mushroom power up, and his unique mushroom hat – all blended with the retro Famicom Swoosh as a backdrop The kanji text reads “Kinopio” which is his name in Japan, “established” and “explore mushroom kingdom”.
On the back you have the flag of Japan, which is a reference to the games country of origin.
The tee: As with all Player Clothing garments, there is an embroidered neck detail, and hem logo along with being 100% cotton and made with 200 GSM weight fabric to offer you the highest quality. The iconic player logo is included in the garment label – and the founders editions come with a certificate of authenticity from the artist and chief designer Mike.
The country: Japan
The colours: Blue with khaki, white, black and red detail
Interesting facts: Unsurprisingly, the design for Toad comes from the mushroom power up. The Toad are a species also known as the “Mushroom People”.
