The Kidrobot x Swatch collection, as expected, looked great. Whilst they only had five of the eight designs available in the Covent Garden store, they did have this exclusive white version (above, second right). It’s really sleek-looking and features a dunny on its face (although sadly it doesn’t come with one).
The most eye-catching set is MAD’s pink, screaming dunny and watch (above, second left) but they were all beautifully done and would make a great gift for any Kidrobot fan.
Each set costs £44.50/$70.00 and the full collection (above) features:
Gary Baseman: Black dunny and watch
Jeremyville: Green and black dunny and watch
Frank Kozik: White moustache dunny, yellow watch
Joe Ledbetter: Grey dunny and watch
MAD: Pink mouth dunny and watch
Tara McPherson: Green and orange dunny and watch
SSUR: Military dunny and watch
Tilt: Multicoloured dunny and watch
When I was in the store I also caught a glimpse of this unbelievably awesome chest featuring all eight watches and dunnies as well as a huge version of the Frank Kozik dunny. At £1,000 it may not be cheap but it is soo cool. It will also mean you have a watch to wear for everyday of the week (and two on Sundays). And, as they say, time is money!
Whilst in store I also checked out some of the other new items available. My favourites included this furry purple Domo (above) from Series 3. Yup, you heard me right – not just plush but actually furry. So cute! I also liked the pink bubblegum-popping Labbit (above) from Series 4.
The Kidrobot carrier bag (above) is awesome, by the way, all stiff card, bright graphics and ribbon handles. A very nice touch.
All in all, some pretty awesome stuff in store at the moment on London’s Earlham Street. However, if dunnies and smoking stoner rabbits aren’t for you, how about this t-shirt, below?
