Man, birthdays are awesome when you’re a kid, and this Birthday Bear from Kidrobot and Kathie Olivas is really taking me back. There was cake, and presents, and if you were lucky an animatronic animal band that was as creepy as it was awesome. When you’re an adult birthdays start to lose their luster a bit, especially when someone tells the wait staff at a chain restaurant and they start singing to you around your table. We could have kept things quiet and just paid for desert like civilized people!
Ensure you celebrate your next trip around the sun to it’s maximum potential with this little buddy. Kathie has added her trademark style to this instantly recognizable character and taken it to places most of us could never have dreamt of. And he’s totally got the creepy/cute thing going on like those robotic bears from my favorite pizza place that I mentioned earlier. I guess I’ve had a pretty consistent theme running throughout my life, which I’ve never noticed before until now. Look at Kidrobot coming hard with the epiphanies.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
