Love you so much I want two of you!

I hope you’ve seen our gift e-VOUCHER,  possibly the easiest way to give your bestie/lover/cousin/father/significant other a unique gift experience – a tiny version of themselves. What’s not to love about someone who loves you so much they want two of you!

All you have to do is purchase a gift e-VOUCHER and a few moments after you complete the checkout process you will receive a number of emails with your gift e-VOUCHER codes. Each code can be redeemed for one Mini Head. You then forward the code to your recipient. The email contains all the instructions they need to get started with ordering their own Mini Head, and they will be able to choose their own hairstyle and colour.  That’s all you have to do. Easy and very, very special.

Every day we are amazed at our customers’ creativity with their personalised mini-figures. If you’ve ever swung by our Facebook page you’ll know that we love to feature some of the amazing images and videos that our cool customers devise and tenderly create. This week we’re loving the photo that a US customer, Ryan Williams of Wilbraham, MA, sent us showing his mini-me out on patrol and packing a serious looking piece of hardware. Check it out here. And if your mini-figures are out and about having adventures, please share them with us!

Next month we’ll be dressing up and having our own adventure when we visit the aptly-named Epic Centre in Lincolnshire for Lincoln Comic-Con 2016. We’re sorting out our ‘epic’ costumes already. We’d love to know if you’re planning to come too!


Cool dads deserve something special on Father’s Day

Sure, you could give him socks, aftershave, or something manly for his shed. But what cool dad wouldn’t want to open their Father’s Day present and find themselves framed, in full superhero mode and ready to hang on the wall? Luckily, you can make this happen for your superhero dad with our latest offer.

Looking good Superdad!

Looking good Superdad!

Is your dad a super Superman? A brooding Batman, a patriotic Captain America, a strong, dependable Ironman? OK – stop there, you get the picture. Seriously, you really can get the picture, but you need to work fast, especially if you’re outside the UK because we need images from you by May 23 (June 1 for UK customers) to personalise your superhero dad’s 3D head, give him the body of his dreams and immortalise him in a classic frame that will look amazing – forever.

Hang it in the hallway, the rumpus room, his study – or maybe it’ll look good in his office? You decide. But wherever it ends up, take a photo and post it to our Facebook page or video the moment when he opens up the present (we love those!). Full details of the offer are here.

Make it a Father’s Day he’ll never forget!




Give your superhero dad a Father’s Day to remember

Socks? Aftershave? Cordless drill? Up and down the country, thousands of Dads will be hoping for something a little bit different for Father’s Day on June 19. And we think we have the perfect gift – a personalised superhero mini- figure of course!

We think Dads are everyday heroes – they pick us up when we fall, give us hugs when we’re sad, help us with our homework, drive us everywhere, show their sons how to be good men, and their daughters what a good man looks like. And they rescue us when our DIY goes horribly wrong.

Our heroes. They’re always there when we need them. So what could be nicer than showing your Dad that he’s your hero by putting his face on a hero mini-figure?

OK, this will need a bit of planning, but last orders for Father’s Day in the UK is June 1 – outside the UK it’s May 23 – so you have plenty of time to think up a convincing reason why you have to take the two specific photo images needed to make a personalised head. Maybe you’re ‘trying to perfect your photography skills’ and need a willing model?

Then, have fun choosing the brick mini-fig hero that best suits your Dad ready for the arrival of his custom head. Whatever his age, your Dad will be thrilled to know that he’s your hero!

Remember to post photos of your superhero Dad on our Facebook page!

Geek alert!

We have to admit that going to our first Comic Con last year was mind blowing, so it’s no wonder we’re already getting excited about being part of Geeks Lincoln Comic Con in July.

Tickets for the event are selling fast and over a thousand people have already signed up to enjoy the retro gaming, cosplay, stage shows and special guests – all under wraps so far. I’ll be getting out my special comic com outfit again and we’ll be planning a great display of our mini-figs and taking orders on the spot. It’s a tremendous, fun event and I’m looking forward to being part of it.

Meanwhile, we’re celebrating the arrival of an intern who’s helping us to expand the options available for our customers at Funky3DFaces. John, a graduate from the University of Lincoln, joined the team a week ago and is already making a difference. One of the things he’s currently working on is broadening the choices customers can make for their personalised head, for example, introducing a wider range of hairstyles. Watch out for new options as they’re added to the website – and remember to book your tickets for Geeks Lincoln Comic Con – we’ll see you there

We do it differently – at the 2016 Innovation Conference

Fresh from our success at the recent Lincolnshire Business Expo, we gathered up our camera kit and took the little guys to the Doing it Differently Innovation Conference at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) last Thursday.

The Doing it Differently Innovation Conference first appeared in 2015 and was set up to provide Lincolnshire businesses with opportunities to network, build business skills and access business support. Being sociable guys, we love to mix and mingle with other businesses, especially as we get to show off our very own innovative Funky3DFaces and spread the fun!

There were around 200 businesses represented at the conference and we had a great time speaking to most of them, as well as capturing their images with our portable kit so they could order their very own 3D heads on the spot!

The event also had some top speakers, including Dave Coplin, Microsoft’s Chief Envisioning Officer, who talked about how to envision the HR boardfull potential of technology, and Ben Mee, author of the best seller We Bought a Zoo, later made into a successful Hollywood film.

We’re always keen to show off how our personalised mini-figures can be used by local businesses, and one really good idea we came across recently was from local accountants Russell Payne & Co. Russell and his team put together a fun ‘attitude’ board to inspire and motivate themselves every day and we displayed it on our Expo stand earlier this year.

The idea was picked up by local HR consultant Neil Buck, who snapped the photo you can see in this post and was wowed by the ingenuity behind the idea.




It’s official! We’re shaking up the toy industry!

Chris left the office behind recently to be interviewed live on the on the top US TV channel Fox Business Network by business broadcast legend Maria Bartiromo. He travelled to FBN’s London studio to be interviewed by Maria on the network’s highly regarded Mornings with Maria show.  Famous for her business journalism and interviews with titans of industry, Maria introduced Chris as the man behind the company that was ‘shaking up the toy industry’.

‘It was an interesting experience to be on a live link with the US show,’ said Chris. ‘The studio in London had a great backdrop of Westminster that viewers could see behind me, but the only thing in front of me was a camera, so it felt slightly weird to be alone and waiting for the red light to signal we were live.

‘I could hear Maria introduce Funky3DFaces as the company that could shake up the toy industry – which was amazing – and then we went straight into the interview. We talked about the idea behind the business and how the idea had taken off. It was great and I really enjoyed the whole thing.’

Funky3DFaces has enjoyed media attention from all parts of the globe since its launch late last year, and you can read all about it in an earlier blog post.

Meanwhile you can watch Chris in his Fox Business Network interview with Maria Bartiromo – and see her team showing off their own personalised mini-figures – here. Alternatively, go over to our Facebook page to view it and also catch up with our latest events and adventures.
