Kidrobot is lucky to call some stellar cities home. With each unique urban culture, they inspire us, energize us, make us laugh and sometimes make us a bit queasy (take a stroll down Grand street in NYC on a hot summer day). After 10 years of loving urban living, we had to pay homage in the only way we know how: vinyl.
Introducing the Kidrobot City ‘Bots Mini’s. Each 3-inch vinyl figure highlights the city where it is exclusively sold by showcasing the characteristics that the city and its citizens are famous for. Five Kidrobot retail stores have their own special ‘Bot: San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and London. On the scene June 21st, each figure retails for $11.95 (£9.60 UK). Take a summer trip and check them out… these ‘Bots and their cities will not disappoint.
Kidrobot ‘Bots Mini New York Edition is available exclusively at KRNY.

In Jason Limon’s post-apocalyptic Earth, humans have ravaged the planet, and plant life has found a way to make a drastic shift to survive. Atropa comes to fruition, and in abundance, consumes the planet.
They commandeer the bodies of remaining people and animals, blending mammal and plant to create a new life form. Body becomes seed, leaves become wings, and memories live on flowering vines. Atropa is the new life form, and the only one that can survive.
The new era begins April 26 at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers. Retailing for $70 US, the Atropa 8-inch Dunny by Jason Limon is a limited edition of 1,000 pieces worldwide.
Atropa is a type of flowering plant, the name deriving from Atropos, the oldest of the three fates in Greek mythology that ended the life of each mortal by cutting their thread.
