Computer Arts Projects hits up Kid Robot’s “Ye Olde English Dunny” launch

January 23, 2009

Soon as the email popped into my inbox 3 days ago, i’ve been like a excitable child on Christmas Eve. The invite was to go down to Selfridge’s Toy Lounge in London to see the new range of Kid Robot’s Dunny’s designed by the Campbells Soup of the uk design game including Clutter, Doktor A, Frames, HiCalorie x Julie West, ilovedust, Jon Burgerman, Keanan Duffty, McFaul, Mimic, Peskimo, Shok 1, Tado, Triclops and UAMOU. It was also announced the quality Mike and Katie from Tado would be painting a giant Dunny live. Jumping onto the 3.43 train from Bath to London and meeting up with my man Chris Malbon from design god’s McFaul. After a 45 minute delay at Swindon and the most hillarious, long winded, extreme detailed description of the delay by some jobs worth driver we finally arrived in London and hit up Selfridges to be met by the biggest cue i’ve seen in a toy store since Jesus invented the Scaletrix.

Check the pics out and see what a fun night you missed and go cop a Dunny now! ;
