About Analog Playset:

Welcome to Analog Playset. This is an idea I have wanted to do for quite a long time, and I am finally going for it. Music is obviously a big part of my life, and I have had a toy obsession (in many different forms) for about as long as I can remember. My goal with Analog Playset is to combine two of my biggest loves, music and toys. Through constant touring over the past 7 years, I have met so many amazing musicians and artists. And I have been to so many amazing toy stores and art galleries around the world. I am excited to attempt to bring all those things together and make beautiful babies. There are so many fun possibilities, and new ideas keep coming up every day. We should have some shirts for sale very soon, and some exciting news and announcements to follow soon after. Shirts are only the appetizer. Stay tuned for a lot of fun. I hope you are even half as excited as I am.
