Dunnys and Labbits and Dopplegangers, oh my!

A while back, I did a blog buddy swap with Becky from The Strumpet's Crumpets. I just love her style and I've been "haunting" her blog ever since.

One of Becky's passions is Kid Robot's Dunnys. A little about this...

Founded by designer Paul Budnitz in 2002, Kidrobot is the world’s premier designer and retailer of limited edition art toys and apparel. Kidrobot merges urban street trends, fashion, and pop art to produce limited edition, collectible toys and apparel. Kidrobot products feature unique collaborations with top international artists with backgrounds as diverse as graffiti, fine art, fashion, industrial design, graphic design, illustration, and music. (more...)

Well, after seeing some pictures of Becky's Dunnys on her blog, I had to check the little buggers out for myself. The fun part about them is that Dunnys come in a blind box assortment. That means you have no idea which Dunny you're going to get until after you open the box. Lame as it may seem, opening each Dunny is kind of like Christmas morning to me and I love the rush of not knowing what I'm going to get.

My husband and I have taken to purchasing a Dunny when we go out or date night and then opening it over cocktails. Sad but true... we skip the movie and the fancy chocolates and flowers... just give me my Dunny rush!

As I've been enjoying my Dunnys, I've become aware of more blind box assortments of toys. Some of them are just outright strange... like the Labbits. These cute little bunnies have mustaches and/or an unexplained addiction to cigarettes. You don't believe me? Check out the Christmas series...

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this post... but, as out latest Dunny purchase peeks out at me from behind the computer monitor, I decided I just had to tell someone.

I wonder if Kid Robot would ever consider doing a Fuzzy Whazzit line?
