We’ve come a long way baby!
This October, Kidrobot is turning double digits! Celebrate all through the month with Kidrobot X : 10 years of art + design! In honor of this magical 10-year milestone, we will be busting out 10 special releases including 2 new ‘Bots minis, a 20-inch and two 8-inch Dunnys, plus 5 new tees designed by Paul Budnitz, Tristan Eaton and Frank Kozik. Each awesome item has it’s own time and place to shine so listen up!
Also, Kidrobot will be hosting a Kidrobot X Anniversary Party and 10-day art toy retrospective on the 2nd floor of Kidrobot New York, October 12-22. This grand event will open during NYCC and highlight some of the most iconic art toys we’ve made in the last decade as well as feature custom 20-inch & 8-inch Dunnys by some of your favorite Dunny designers. More details on that to come…
Ahem, is this thing on?
Well… this is a surprise and an honor. I’d like to thank the people who really make the Kidrobot X magic happen. The artists… man, I mean, there are so many talented artists I have had the pleasure of working with over the last ten years… the collabs… I’ve been so fortunate to work with such interesting partners… and the fans… what can I say about this great community? The fans are what make it all possible. None of us would be able to do this, this thing that we love, without the fans.
And, finally… the person that has REALLY made this all possible… the sun to my earth, the foundation to my studs, the air to my Jordan’s…
I love you mom.
