Hello Press and Friends,

DKE Toys Presents #DKECON - DCON Edition

November 13-15, 2020
A virtual event!

DKE Toys is hosting a LIVE virtual event for 2020 DesignerCon. To culminate our virtual event season we bring you #DKECON - DCON Edition! The pandemic continues to provide the unusual opportunity of inviting everyone we know to our "booth."

The DKE Toys DesignerCon booth will be set up in the DKE warehouse and available to all via a live continuous Zoom webinar style meeting Friday 12pm-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-7pm PST. For the first time in DKE Toys history all of the DCON convention releases will be available in our online store.

All exclusive products will be limited to one per person per item on Friday. Starting Saturday at 10am customers will be able to purchase two or more based on availability.

With each qualifying purchase customers will receive a “fine” silk-screened Suckadelic tote bag designed for DKE by the Super Sucklord himself. Edition limited to 1000.

We will also have one of a kind back stock items, DKE warehouse tour, show-and-tell with Dov. Tune in and ask Dov anything! Chat with Dov and staff about toy making, art, food, parenting tips, collecting, politics, and more. In quiet moments watch Dov and staff pull and pack your order LIVE!

DKE will have over 2 dozen exclusive releases. (Artist list below.) Plus view and choose from the full action figure portion of the DesignerCon 2020 - 35th Anniversary Back to the Future Art Show. Over 30 custom action figure editions with a Back to the Future theme. That's a lot of figures!
