Powerpuff Girls get a tearful but humorous 25th-anniversary tribute as 'Crybabies'

Recommended Posts


Sugar, spice, and everything nice… with a sprinkle of tears? The Powerpuff Girls, the iconic Cartoon Network superheroes created by Craig McCracken, are looking a little puffy! They’ve teamed up with designer toy company POP MART and its amusing series, Crybaby, to create a line of collectible figures that mark the trio’s 25th anniversary.


The POP MART Crybaby x Powerpuff Girls Series, dreamed up by Thai artist Molly Yllom, features chibi-style figures of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, reimagined with a touch of Crybaby’s signature emotional vulnerability.




Each icon boasts adorable details that blend the Powerpuff Girls’ iconic aesthetics with Crybaby’s melancholic charm. We see Blossom pouting, Bubbles crying into her pillow, and the usually tough Buttercup bawling her eyes out.






The collection includes 12 regular designs, with the possibility of acquiring rare “chaser” figures like Mojo Jojo, The Mayor of Townsville, and Professor Utonium for those lucky collectors.




Even villains need a mental health day.


This collaboration marks a unique departure for the Powerpuff Girls, traditionally portrayed as the epitome of cheerful heroism. The POP MART figures capture a more nuanced side to these characters, acknowledging that even superheroes experience moments of sadness. This resonates with the core message of Crybaby, reminding us that emotions like sadness are a normal part of life. Crybaby is a popular character from POP MART’s Molly’s Factory, known for her melancholic and relatable depictions of everyday moods.




Themed merchandise and accessories like Type-C cable blind boxes, Apple AirPods Pro bags, phone charm blind boxes, a TV set luminous display container, a mirror pendant, and a glass cup are also available.







Through this collaboration, Molly hopes that everyone can realize that they can be brave but also fragile, tears do not represent weakness, sadness does not need to be hidden and even heroes have their moments of vulnerability; encouraging people to be their most authentic selves and be brave enough to become whoever they want to be.





So, what are your thoughts on this kickass collection?
