Anonymous: i want to buy those little toys that you can paint yourself that are in the store, i forgot what there called but are there local artests that would be willing to paint one for me? im starting a collection of little creatures and toys on my dashboard.
The most general KidRobot DIY figure is called a Munny. There are variations called Foomi, OMI, Bic Buddy, ect. There are definitely artists that would be interested in painting them, we also have a gallery of ones already painted that are for sale. Stop in sometime to check them out! There are pictures of them posted on our facebook at Pandamantoys.
