Do you know someone who’s into limited edition art toys? From vinyl figures to plush collectibles, designer toys are an art form of their own. Many are created or inspired by artists, designers, and museums, such as the recent, limited-edition collection of Kidrobot Dunny figures made in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Toys, models, and figurines allow art enthusiasts to pay tribute to their favorite artists or movements by displaying them proudly in their homes. However, there are also other types of art toys that are more interactive, such as jigsaws or even art-themed Monopoly. In this list, we’ve included cute collectibles and educational art toys that allow both kids and adults to playfully celebrate their love of art.

Know someone who loves to collect toys? Here are 20 art toys that playfully celebrate creativity.
