Kidrobot x Aggretsuko Keychains
Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking:
In Sanrio’s hit cartoon Aggretsuko, an adorable red panda named Retsuko goes on a full scale death metal karaoke rage any time her office job gets to be too much to handle. In Kidrobot’s keychain series of the same name, that little red panda and her friends will help you keep your keys together so it’s one less thing out there to consume your soul with hyper aggression. No need to thank us, it’s all part of the job.
Whoever actually invented the keychain is a true hero that should be celebrated with their own holiday. Without their contribution to the world, our keys would be like loose change in our pockets: falling between couch cushions, getting dropped in the street as we search for other things, or being batted around on hardwood floors by our feline friends at 3am.
This great invention put a stop to all that, allowing our keys to remain in intimate proximity to one another while maintaining the devil may care attitude that if one shall be lost at any given time then all shall be lost together. Oh, fates how we tempt thee!
Each key chain comes blind bagged, keeping its contents a bigger mystery than the lyrics of Retsuko’s favorite music. Collect em, trade em, and use em to start the massive caretaker’s ring of keys you’ve always dreamed of.

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
