Kidrobot x Andy Warhol Campbell’s Can Chess Set Online Now!

November 07, 2017

     We are so excited about the new Andy Warhol x Kidrobot Campbells Can Chess Set! So is our good friend Chris Holt, aka The Toy Viking… check it out!
Kidrobot is taking everything my parents taught me and throwing it out of the window with this Andy Warhol chess set.  First, I was always told not to play with my food, which was really never a problem due to how picky I was.  There’s not much you can do with my bland diet that would have been of any visual interest, so I never bothered. Plus, mashed potatoes are the lynch pin of any good food sculpture and the only potato product I was interested in were french fries.  The second thing they taught me was to never play with fine art, though again it was kind of a moot point.  When the art in your house consists of beach scenes or fiber optics you don’t really want to be anywhere near it less it infect you with bad taste.  No one has proven yet that it’s not contagious.
     This chess set features the beyond iconic Campbell’s soup cans as the game pieces with their position in the game spelled out right on the label.  Great to play with or to just use as an intriguing display piece, this set can be yours at www.kidrobot.com.

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
