REVIEW: Kozik Labbit

Img_0395_1

Background

FreeBento.com has sent us one of Frank Kozik’s new rotocast vinyl Labbit figures.  These Labbits are the younger, more innocent brothers of the Smorkin’ variety.  Kidrobot might have felt somewhat pressured to appeal to younger clientele…which birthed this sweeter, gentler Labbit.

Packaging

The package is a window-front box.  It is decorated with Kozik artwork.  The window allows you to see what accessories the figure you are buying has.  This is convenient, and it’s the only way you’ll be able to find the accessory set you want.

The Figures

These Labbits are non-smorkin’…so you won’t find any cigarettes in the accessory list.  Each figure is made of rotocast vinyl and measures 5” in length.  There are 4 Labbits available, with the only differing factor being the interchangeable accessories each is packaged with.  The Labbit has a hole for a mouth, and you can find accessories such as an ice cream cone, mustache, blade of grass, banana, hot dog and more!

Mozzarella by tokidoki

One of the newest figures from STRANGEco is the 6"tall, rotocast Mozzarella...the next vinyl figure from Simone Legno and tokidoki.
Mozzarella is the leader of The Moofia, a gang asembled to extort milk
from lunchboxes of schoolyard bullies. She's loving and kind to good
kids but ruthless and feared by those who harass the innocent.  Mozzarella packs tommy gun heat, and comes with a 2.5" smiling bullet companion.

REVIEW: Chuckanucka – Uglydolls

Img_0402

Background

David and Sun-Min
have introduced several new Uglydoll characters over the past few months.  The latest available Ugly is known as Chuckanucka (Peaco is now a pre-order).  After premiering at Toy Fair 2006, the Ugly masses have been clamoring for release of this character.  Below is what Chuckanucka’s tag has to say about him.

OK, you know what?  Chuckanucka.  That’s what.  Chuckanucka worries about pretty much everything under the sun: What if the phone rings when I go out? What if the mailman tries to deliver my Deluxe Uglydoll Earmuffs when I’m in the bathroom?  Hey, I don’t remember leaving the closet door open just a crack like that!  What if I can’t ever stop thinking about my name over and over?

Chuckanucka has a pretty strange way of looking at life.  Sometimes he wonders if this is all just a hologram, and on other days he wonders what’s going to happen if they stop making CD players…  How will I play my favorite CDs??? I have over nine of them!!!  Poor Chuckanucka.  Lucky Chuckanucka.

Packaging

Umm…Uglydolls are plush toys.  They don’t have any packaging.  They do have a nice little tag, but I already told you what it says!
