Yummy World has gone to the dogs!!!! Man, I can’t believe I actually said that. Ok, let’s start over. Kidrobot’s Yummy World is no longer just for you as they have released an array of products that you can share with your pets. Or that you can give to your pets so they stop trying to partake in your collection. And if you thought I didnt have the perfect story for this, well then you’d be mistaken.
One year I had bought my niece a plush moose for Christmas because for some reason she was obsessed with them at the time. She certainly never saw one meandering through her backyard in New Jersey, so who knows where or why she decided this was her spirit animal. But being the good uncle I of course had to get her one and as I was attempting to wrap it for her my cat decided that he too was a moose fan. He walked right up as calm as could be, sunk a few sharp teeth into it’s felt antler, and jogged (do cats jog? ) away with it in tow like it was no big deal. I chased him down and got it back before any real damage had been done and then entire scenario repeated itself. I’d try and wrap, he’d come and steal. Later that week I went out and bought him one since he liked it so much and when I gave it to him he smelled it a little, smacked it in the face, and hasn’t touched it in the three years since. He swears he’s funny.
He would be all about these, because his most favorite thing to steal is food, so this would be like good time overload. Now if I can just convince Frank Kozik to make some catnip Labbits…

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
