The Kidrobot x Clutter DTA Blind Box Mini Series Release is here!

June 02, 2017

   Put on your fanciest garb and gather your trendiest friends because a release like this deserves your attention. Brush your teeth, comb back your hair, dust off those dancing shoes and get yourself the new Kidrobot x Clutter DTA Dunny Mini Series today on www.kidrobot.com! We tried to see what the reaction was to the DTA Dunny Series by bringing a small quantity to the first ever Five Points Festival in New York City where Kidrobot ruled the booth game and attended the Designer Toy Awards. To no ones surprise, everybody fell in love! It didn’t really matter which one you got, everyone loved the series at the festival and now it’s your turn because they are officially released on Kidrobot.com.  Here to explain a bit more about the vinyl birth of the Kidrobot x Clutter DTA Dunny Mini Series is our favorite, Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking!
For the past few years Clutter Magazine has organized a custom show to help support the Designer Toy Awards.  They gather artists from around the globe to interpret the Dunny and the results are always amazing.  All over social media people comment about how they wish that the designs would become readily available to add to their own collections, and Kidrobot has heard you.  Thus the Designer Toys Awards mini series was born!!!!  (If you read that in the same voice they use to advertise monster truck rallies then you did it right)
    Featuring first time Dunny designers Gary Ham, Andrea Kang, So Youn Lee, The Bots, and Quiccs, this series is for every toy customizer out there who dreams of their own production toy.  Each one is sold blind boxed and will be available beginning Friday, June 2nd at www.kidrobot.com, so quit reading and get your DTA Dunny now!

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj

Rejects Art Toy Figures by One-Eyed GirlQ & 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
