Known for featuring cartoon-like figures and honest humour in his work, the Chris Johanson Plush Balloons hero the American artist's style perfectly. Riffing on Johanson's original drawings, this pair of soft balloon toys beg to be hugged and are as inviting as their feel-good expressions.
A wonderful gift to introduce children to art, or for art-loving adults to display on beds, sofas or shelves.
