BEEP BEEP! We are making the average food truck covered in cuteness with the new Kidrobot x Sanrio Micro Vehicle Mini Series. Here to say a little something extra is our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking….
Your commute to work just got a whole lot cuter thanks to Kidrobot and Sanrio. Who would mind sitting in traffic if all the cars looked like the ones in this series? Hello Kitty and friends are taking to the streets as they have transformed themselves into modes of transportation. Now are the characters themselves the cars or do the cars just look like them and are actually being driven by their likenesses? And are the cars their own sentient beings or is their consciousness directly linked to their driver? I think I’m making this way more complicated than it needs to be.
One thing is for certain, they are in danger of getting pulled over for being way too adorable without a permit. This blind boxed series features all of your favorites from Sanrio and 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
