It’s a new year, and we have a new website – Hoorah!
After many years of not having a proper home, www.tado.co.uk is now full of brand new work and goodies. We hope you guys enjoy checking it out.
It does mean that we now have a new wordpress blog, so this will be the last post to this one. The URL for the new TADO-Blog is: www.tado.co.uk/blog
We hope you guys continue to follow us over there. Thank you very much for all your comments and follows on this one over the years!
Happy new 2015!

we wanted to share something with you guys that we’re extremely excited about.
It’s been several years in the making, but we’re very proud to announce that our first picture book ‘Monster Trucks: The Big Race’ is going to be published on July 3rd!
Yup – this Thursday!
Written by our super-talented friend Jon Hinton and published by the lovely folk at Scholastic Children’s Books, The Big Race is the first in a new series of fast-paced, big-wheeled racing romps that follow Bolt, Chunk, Roxy, Fizz, Newton and Masher as they rev off on exciting adventures in a crazy world full of fun, laughter and a few spills along the way.
The book will be available from good bookshops worldwide from July 3rd!
Publisher: Scholastic Children’s Books
Publication Date: 03-July-2014
We hope you guys like the look of The Monster Trucks, it’s an absolute dream come true for us and we’re looking forward to getting it into the mitts of all the little monsters we know!
We’ll post up some more info on the book soon. We’re also very busy putting the final touches to our new site that we hope will be live shortly – at last!!

It’s been a very busy start to the new year here, and one of the projects we can share with you guys is a new Panda Otaku collaboration we’ve been working on with our good friend and long-time partner in mischief Nick Hunter. If you’ve been keeping an eye on our Instagram feed you’ll have seen the magical work in progress pics we’ve been posting from Nicks studio, and we’ll be updating with more once we get the paints out soon.
We’re aiming to have the first batch of Pandas and Piggles ready for Toycon UK in April, and we’ll be working on a way to make them available online at the same time too.
Happy belated New Year to you all! We hope this blogpost finds you all well and enjoying the start to 2014!
We’re very excited about the coming new year but first wanted to say a big thank you for all the support, friendship, collaborations, opportunities, projects and of course ‘likes’ we’ve received over the past year 😀 😀 .
We’re extremely lucky to have worked and collaborated with some amazing people on some really really cool projects this year and we look forward to sharing more of them soon. Thank you all very much!!
2014 is off to a busy start for us, we’re already working on our second and third childrens books in collaboration with a good friend of ours, and Toycon UK is not far off too – eek!
For now here’s some exciting Instagram-type updates from Dan on the Unbox Star Wars Chubbies project – this may well be the longest toy project we’ve been involved with but it looks like we wont have to wait much longer and the results are looking spectacular! These are still very much work in progress but by golly they look fun.
Happy New Year to you all!

Yey! we just received a big box of awesome from the guys at JapanLA and Dynomighty! These wallets turned out super-nice – the print is great and they smell fantastic! 😀 😀
We’ve got a limited number available and we’ve just uploaded them to the TADOShop – UK orders should still have time to get in before xmas. Woo!
Piggle is somewhat miffed that no monnies were included with the wallets.The instagram filter on these 2 pics makes the colours look a little dark, but in reality they go POW!
