The Kidrobot Electrical Engineering Lab could have easily phoned it in and made a giant Dunny that simply glowed a basic white and lit up your entire room. It would have been cool, but it could have been so much cooler. They always play it safe around electricity but never with design! So instead of a mere Dunny to provide the light you need to write your memoirs, they took their flagship figure and loaded it with color changing abilities. And because there’s nothing worse than interrupting your comfort, it also comes with a remote control. If this were a late night commercial that would have been the point the announcer said “but wait, there’s more” but since my production budget mysteriously remains at $0 I have to use my words to set the scene for you. There were gonna be dancing cats, but you’ll have to imagine those too.

"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
