REVIEW: Bigtop Jinny

bigtop jinny 02

Background

We first saw Jats Gill's Jinny platform toy in a 2.25” tall blindbox series. Bitbots Toys was thinking big...so they have teamed up with artist Jon Burgerman to release the first 6” tall vinyl Jinny figure. The Bigtop Jinny is nearly triple the size of the original figures, and it's been adorned with the doodling of Jon Burgerman.

Human brains get weighed down with all the things they're trying not to think and obsess about; Did I leave the gas on? Will I have enough money to pay the rent and buy LA Noir this weekend? What will happen if the Sun explodes? Why are Curly Wurlys getting smaller?

Sometimes you have to sip your over priced, unethically sourced mochafrappacapoeirachino and smile through it all. Give up the anxiety and take your Bigtop to the circus, they have clowns and dancing bears.

Packaging

The packaging for the Bigtop Jinny vinyl is solid cardboard, featuring artwork similar to the figure's design. It's fairly busy, with all of Burgerman's doodles, but it gives you a good idea of what's inside. And, inside, the figure is held between two snapping plastic trays.
