Kidrobot x Andy Warhol Vinyl Soup Can Mystery Series 2 Available Online Now
I’m not a soup guy. To me soup is reserved for hospital stays or as a bonus with your meal when you’re out at a restaurant. Now Kidrobot aims to change how I feel about this staple of so many dinner tables with series 2 of Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Can Mystery Figures. Each one features a surprise art object made famous by Andy’s illustrious career. Some are made of vinyl and some are made of plush, but all are instantly recognizable from his large body of work.
Unlike the cans you buy at the grocery store, the contents of these are a surprise, but that adds to the fun of it. Could you imagine if real cans of soup were packaged this way? You were really excited for chicken noodle but you get home, crack it open, and clam chowder is staring back at you. That would be a total bummer.
This blind boxed..er..canned series is available now at www.kidrobot.com.

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
