Fun Flower Fact Brought to You By The Letter “C”: The Corpse Flower
Because you can never know enough random things, I thought I’d share this with you. The corpse flower is a large plant that only blooms once every ten years, emitting a rotten smell that is intended to attract carnivorous insects to pollinate. And you thought your online dating profile was a beacon for weirdos.
J*RYU’s Clairvoyant Dunny from Kidrobot may have exposed a skull hiding beneath it’s petals, but thankfully lacks the drawback of such a noxious odor. What other secrets this figure contains will vary based on the person that encounters it. Some may find their time together with it enlightening and having instilled a renewed vigor into their lives. Others may find what it reveals as unpleasant as the previously mentioned botanical. You think it doesn’t know what secrets lie in your internet browser history? Oh, it knows, and it is disappointed.
Just in time for you to make an amendment to your Christmas list, this popular figure is now available as a 20 inch behemoth and comes complete with an 8 inch crystal ball companion. Clear some shelf space, dim the lights, and take a trip behind the veil.

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
