Guest Blog: Hooverville Labbit by The Toy Viking
Chris Holt, aka The Toy Viking, is back at it again with another blog! This time he mentions Frank Kozik’s Hooverville Labbit!!
Times may be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep a smile on your face during this rough patch. Take this new 10 inch Hooverville Labbit from Frank Kozik and Kidrobot for example. His overalls may not win Project Runway, and he may be forced to bum his Smorks from strangers, but this dude is choosing to keep hope alive rather than wallow in the sadness of his financial despair. I think you just found your new spirit animal. Available in both vintage and Kidrobot.com exclusive orange colorways, he’s available right now to panhandle his way into your heart. The black colorway is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and the orange colorway is limited to 200 pieces world wide.
