Paul Budnitz and Huck Gee Has hidden their game these few days. With enigmatic photos on social networks and texts that were as much, now the duet is about to let go of a bomb on the international toys scene: they give life to their emblematic characters via A division based on animation and entertainment !

Janky and Guggimon will ripple your daily life with Photos, video and inspirational stories where product investments. Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Dr. Martens, are already tagged on their posts, that is to say.
