Toy Karma 3 finds artists expressing their love for classic Japanese toys. Curated by Mark Nagata, founder of Max Toy Company, the show pays homage to the mysterious force toys have over us.

The biennial exhibition was first mounted in 2007. Now in its third go round, we're expecting Toy Karma 3 to be bigger and better than ever. Toy makers and artists like Jeff Lamm, Rumble Monsters, and Zollman have cooked up some awesome stuff.

Exhibition runs from September 10 through October 2, 2011.

Rotofugi Gallery, 2780 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL

Vinyl toy lovers, prepare to salivate. Our preview of Toy Karma 3 is pretty tasty.
