Kidrobot’s Throwback Thursday: Kono The Yeti 8″ Dunny By Squink

August 09, 2018

Kidrobot x Squink Kono the Yeti 8" Dunny

Look’s like it’s time for the Kidrobot throwback Thursday by our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking! This time we are throwing it back to the Kono the Yeti by Squink. 

It’s so hot outside right now that I can’t even think of a proper cliche to describe it.  My brain refuses to function when its this sweaty and has gone on extended stand by.  Of course in another few months or so we’ll all be complaining about the cold but that’s a problem for another day.

Just looking at this eight inch Yeti Dunny from Kidrobot and Squink brings a bit of chill into the air.  He’s not much of a warm weather fan either, which could explain the sad look on his face.  Or he could be a little bummed cause he’s still out here looking for his forever home.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to turn this into one of those sad commercials with the puppies and kitties that rip your heart right from your chest every time they air.  But look at that wittle face and tell me you don’t want to hug him right through the screen.

Available now at www.kidrobot.com in two different color ways, you no longer have to travel to the Himalayas to have a yeti sighting.  Though I bet the Himalayas are nice and cool this time of year, so don’t rule out that trip just yet.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj

April 23, 2020

Rejects Art Toy Figures by One-Eyed GirlQ & 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
