The Toy Viking On Linda Panda Care Bear Available Online Now!

November 09, 2017

    And here is another awesome blog on the new Linda Panda Care Bear: Perfect and Polite Panda available online now at Kidrobot.com
Linda Panda was practically born to reinterpret Polite Panda from the Care Bears.  Not only does her adorably cute style fit perfectly into their world, but her last name is literally Panda.  Seriously, do you think Kidrobot doesn’t do thorough background checks on every artist we work with?  Ok, we actually don’t do that at all, we just kind of took her word for it that if we DID check her driver’s license it would confirm her story.  On a side note have you ever seen a real panda in person?  I did once at the zoo and they are so unreal looking they could have been people in suits and I would not have been surprised.  Their mannerisms while eating and playing were so human like I felt like I might have been duped into being a part of one of those hidden camera shows.
   Surnames and rental costumes aside, this medium vinyl figure looks less like he’s hungry for bamboo snacks and more like he ready to climb right into your heart.  And unlike a real panda, it has more to do with being a total love bug than the fact that you jumped into it’s enclosure and tried to expose him for the fuzzy suit wearing fraud he is.  I do not understand how they make those things because I could not find the zipper anywhere.
     Bring one home today at www.kidrobot.com.

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

April 23, 2020

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
