The South Korean company, Pipos, was established in 2006. Though they are more famously known for their anthro lines, Pipos also makes non-anthro dolls on occasion. Their first anthro doll, Baha, didn’t come along until early 2007. Inspired by the company’s office cat, sculptor Kwak Jong Chul spent three years developing Baha- the cat doll that would soon become the company’s mascot. Since Baha, Pipos has released several different types of animal dolls and non-anthro dolls in a variety of sizes and resin colors, as well as make improvements to previous sculpts.
