Somedays we all just want to stop what we are doing and run away…we get it. Even with great friends and good weather there are just some days that we feel like we cant keep up with life. Speaking of great friends, here is another release blog by our friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking on the soon to be released Jumper by Colus.
Some days you soar with ease over any obstacle, while others the fence was just a tad bit too high, leaving you to dangle helplessly. That doesn’t mean you should ever stop trying though, but it does mean you should always have someone nearby in case you impale yourself. That works as both a metaphor and a real world scenario, so just keep that in mind if your lifestyle involves scaling physical barriers of any sort.
I am beyond excited that Kidrobot and Colus are continuing their relationship with this newest resin figure entitled Jumper. This piece goes well beyond the words “toy” or “figure” as it would look as perfect on display in any art museum as it will in your home. Most likely they would display it on a pedestal in the middle of the room, which always makes me nervous that I’m going to bump it and ruin it. Could you imagine being responsible for destroying a priceless piece of art? That’s something that will haunt you the rest of your life, like a poorly thought out lower back tattoo. I still love Taco Tuesdays, I just should have professed it a little differently.
Available in matte black and the Kidrobot exclusive white edition, this next level sculpture can be found 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
