Collectible Streetwear Figurines

A Bathing Ape and BAIT Announce the New 'Baby Milo' Figurines

— May 9, 2022 — Pop Culture
A Bathing Ape and BAIT have announced the release of new eight-inch versions of the 'Baby Milo' sculpture showcased for the BAPE 25th-anniversary celebration. The figurines were given as a blank canvas to many established individuals such as Sk8thing, Mankey, Stash, James Bond, Adam Lister, Michael Lau, Eric Haze, Shepard Fairey, Shinsuke Takizawa, and Tetsu Nishiyama.

The 'Baby Milo' sculptures each feature a unique design from their respective artist, and now they are available for purchase. Sk8thing’s haniwa-inspired Milo and Tetsu’s ‘Choco Banana’ Milo bring awareness to environmental issues. Interested parties who would like to own a shrunken version of the iconic character can purchase figurines individually or as a set of 10. The 'Baby Milo' sculptures will be made available at all BAPE flagship stores on May 14, 2022.
