Kidrobot, the world’s premier creator and retailer of limited edition art toys, apparel and accessories is set to open its first ever store-gallery overseas at Selfridges Oxford Street, London. From January 22 to February 21, 2009, the Selfridges Concept Store, located in The Wonder Room, will be transformed into the Kidrobot universe through eye-popping window displays, a curated collection of limited edition merchandise, ultra-exclusive new releases, and an artist-studded release party for Kidrobot’s Ye Olde English Dunny Series.
Larger-than-life-sized inflatable toys designed by Kidrobot’s creative team will take over the Concept Store’s windows along Orchard and Oxford Street. The one thousand square foot store-gallery will sell everything from signature toys like Munny and Dunny to tees and hoodies to a collection of bags kitted-out in original prints and toys. The space will also feature Kidrobot’s coveted accessory line by Tarina Tarantino, Frank Kozik’s Labbit stools, and 20-inch vinyl toys customized by world-famous UK artists such as ilovedust and Jon Burgerman.
To mark this epic collaboration, Kidrobot and Selfridges are launching the store-gallery with a release party for Kidrobot’s Ye Olde English Dunny Series, a 17-figure lineup of art toys designed by top UK artists such as ilovedust, Clutter, Triclops, Jon Burgerman and TADO. In addition, Kidrobot created an exclusive version of their highly anticipated Kidrobot 16, which will be available only at the Kidrobot x Selfridges store-gallery. Known as UK Punk, this insanely rare figure comes complete with a Union Jack paint job, a studded belt, and will drop in a limited edition run of 300 pieces.
