Kidrobot’s Show Me The Munny Event

This past Friday, August 4th, Kidrobot in collaboration with Rule Gallery and Leisure Gallery hosted our First Friday Show Me The Munny Event as part of Denver’s First Friday Art Walk! The Event was featured in 5280 Magazine the week prior to the event as well as featured on the Everyday Show on Denvers Fox channel the day before to help spread the news of the upcoming event. Realizing our role in the Vinyl Toy and Art world, Kidrobot worked to find a place in the Art District of Denver and bring vinyl art to the scene. For what we hope to be the first of MANY art events driven by Kidobot… we were thrilled to see familiar faces from Comic Cons and events as well as new characters who saw a whole new side to what “toys” can mean.

With Rule Gallery we worked to collect over 30 different artists Munnys that took up the entire Gallery. These pieces were covered in paint, glitter, hair etc and took hours beyond hours of artists frustration and artistic eye to create something that best reflected their own design. Munnys from familiar artists such as J*RYU, The Horrible Adorables, The Bots, SHIFFA, Josh Mayhem and Naptime Noah stood as KIDROBOT collaborations for viewers to see the extent of artistic ability in the vinyl art/toy world as well as  displaying both KIDROBOT and Denver based artists who were inspired by the shape of the Munny to redesign their own style.

Leisure Gallery opened their doors to give all the viewers inspired by what they saw the opportunity to decorate their own Munny! Bringing down over 100 Munny pieces, people purchased the DIY Munny and began making their own masterpiece.

Half of the proceeds were donated to the Denver non profit, Arthvye that works to conserve Denver art. Read more here!

Kidrobot x Care Bear Keychains Release!

Care Bear keychains are here! Cute, small and new, we are stoked about this collaboration with American Greeting to release the new vinyl Keychain Series with love and sunshine! Chris Holt is here to talk about the Care Bear Keychains release on Kidrobot.com!

I would feel totally guilty if I lost my keys and one of these Care Bear key chains from Kidrobot was attached.  They’re so dang cute and I would worry that they were out in this great big world, with only the keys to my midsize sedan to keep them company.  This is why I can’t watch those cartoons about cute little animals that get separated from their parents and have to find their way home.  Those movies kill me every time no matter that I know the outcome is always good.   I’m way too sad now and only a serious lunch will alleviate this depression.  Turkey sandwich take me away!

These adorable little bears will ensure you never lose your keys again so you don’t go through the above mentioned sadness.  And every time you go to start your car or unlock that secret storage container, one of these will stare back at you and instantly brighten your day.  You can’t be upset when a group of multi colored bears with pictures on their tummies are nearby.  Now if you were in the woods and a bear stands up without a picture on his tummy, your day might actually get a little worse.  Unless you distract him with your key ring full of these guys and retreat to safety, that is!!!  Care Bears are always coming through for you.

Sold blind boxed style, the bear you get may be a mystery, but the joy it will bring you is no surprise.  Pick up a few now at www.kidrobot.com.

Bob’s Burgers Pins Available Now!

Whats the story behind the new Kidrobot x Bob’s Burgers Pins? Well.. its not the first Bob’s Burgers things to hit Kidrobot.com but it sure is something great… let’s let Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking be the one to tell you!

It’s not all toys and rainbows here at Kidrobot and sometimes we have to think about things less pleasant.  One of those things is the post apocalyptic dystopia that we could be faced with one day.  Now while some folks may prepare for such a situation by building a fallout shelter or stocking up on canned beans (I hope you have a good way to filter the air after cracking open a few tins of those) we are taking a different approach.  You won’t see this on the news and your financial adviser won’t tell you about it either, but we’re predicting pins will be the currency of choice in the future.  Yes, you’ll be able to proclaim your gold tier status in the apocalypse by covering yourself in awesome pins.  Cash won’t get your sedan converted into a wasteland death machine, but these bad boys from Bob’s Burgers will.

Theories suggest that this cartoon about a family’s hamburger joint is set in Southern New Jersey, which is where I happen to live.  Someone who is industrious should totally build one and create an awesome tourist attraction.  The wait staff could dress up as the characters and the restaurant itself could be an exact reproduction from the show.  When I open it dont try and pay with pins though; cash is still king until it isn’t.

These will make a great addition to your wardrobe, or you could get one of those cork boards and load that sucker up with em.  Or do whatever you like with them, cause I’m not trying to run your life. They are sold blind box style and available right now from www.kidrobot.com.

Yukky World Leif Spinach

Yukky World is bulked up and ready for release! Chris Holt aka the Toy Viking is ready for explain the inside scoop on Leif Spinach.

While he may be known for helping you get really strong, Leif Spinach can’t even take advantage of his own minerals to go workout at the gym or save a damsel in distress.  That’s because he was born without muscles.  He’s a just a tin can filled with greens that do him absolutely no good.  Yeah, he wishes he could body slam you for looking at him sideways but he’ll have to be content knowing that most people would rather eat a hot dog than go anywhere near the nutrition he’s packing.  Lucky for you he doesn’t have arms or there would be a mean headlock coming your way!

Yukky World Slippery Pete

Ya know who is a real joker?? Chris Holt and we don’t mean that in a bad way! Chris Holts speaks up for those less outspoken.. this time its for the Yukky World plush! Give it a read!

Whether spinning your go cart out of control in the middle of a race or providing a bit of comic relief for anyone BUT the person that steps on him, Slippery Pete is a classic prankster.  Sure, go ahead and rob him of his potassium, cause the joke’s gonna be on you when he finds himself beneath your shoes.  One misstep and you’re on the injured reserve. No one but Pete himself knows how he got there, and he’ll be laughing the whole way to the emergency room.

Yukky World Johan Mold Apple

An apple a day may not actually keep the doctor away, as this guy will send you straight to the gastroenterologist.  Meet Johan Mold Apple.  He’s rotten all the way down to the core, and instead of being chock full of vitamins he is home to a freeloading worm who doesn’t believe in the concept of paying rent.  That’s enough to make anyone a bit sour.
