Collaborative deck between Bicycle and Tokidoki. From the little background textures, to the sprinkled Tokidoki characters throughout the deck, this deck, is great. Every suit is themed differently. Every court card is designed differently.
Designed by Simone Legno

The deck has a Seal
Of the 54 original cards, one of the jokers is converted to a Tokidoki face card. Though it doesn’t say so, this card can be used as substitute joker.
Medicom Toy teamed up with both Tokidoki’s Simone Legno and world class playing card company Bicycle to bring you these dope playing cards.
The cards are Made in the USA and feature an amazing air cushion finish and beautiful TKDK designs on all court cards, ace card and TKDK signature character riding a bicycle on the Joker card.
tokidoki, which translates to “sometimes” in Japanese, is an internationally recognized and iconic lifestyle brand based on the vision of Italian artist Simone Legno and his partners, serial entrepreneurs Pooneh Mohajer and Ivan Arnold.
Since debuting in 2005, tokidoki has amassed a cult-like following for its larger-than-life characters and emerged as a sought- after global lifestyle brand. tokidoki offers an extensive range of products which include apparel, handbags, cosmetics, accessories, toys and more.
Simone Legno, tokidoki’s creative director, was born in Rome, Italy and from a very young age developed a deep love of Japan and a fascination with world cultures. Combining Legno’s unique talent and creativity with Mohajer’s business acumen, tokidoki has grown exponentially.
As an innovative company, tokidoki is known not only for its eye-popping aesthetic and criminally cute characters but also its megawatt partnerships.
Lines of toys include: Cactus Friends, Donutella and Her Sweet Friends, Unicorno, Moofia, Mermicorno, Til Death, and Punkstar.
In April 2005, the co-founder of cosmetics company Hard Candy, Pooneh Mohajer, and her husband Ivan Arnold, saw Simone Legno’s personal portfolio website, which had some popularity, being listed as one of The Independent’s top ten “websites of the week”. They subsequently arranged to meet him, and Simone joined them in Los Angeles. Simone has become a recent fixture at the San Diego Comic Con and makes appearances at various locations worldwide for signings and promotions.
Simone Legno (Co-Founder/Chief Creative Officer) of tokidoki was born in Rome, Italy. Legno drew incessantly as a child. The boxes of chewed, broken and unsharpened pencils he adored as a kid were the beginnings of a passion for art that led to the eventual creation of tokidoki.
tokidoki means “sometimes” in Japanese. Legno, who has always had a deep love of Japan and fascination with world cultures, chose the word because he feels “everyone waits for moments that change one’s destiny, by chance or by meeting a new person”. Simone’s special moment arrived when his designs drew the attention of entrepreneurs Pooneh Mohajer and Ivan Arnold, who spied the art on his personal website and convinced him to move to L.A. to build a global brand.
tokidoki has collaborated with many brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Guggenheim Museum, Sephora, LeSportsac, Onitsuka Tiger, Marvel, New Era, Hello Kitty, Fujitsu, Levi’s, Xbox, T-mobile, Medicom Toy, MLB, Barbie, and Canon.
Simone has become a sought-after speaker around the world at museums, universities and conferences, from MOCA to the Adobe MAX conference, Flash Film Festival, Art Center College of Design, Apple store in Osaka, Istituto Europeo di Design, STGCC, and Grafika Manila.
