Be My Friend

Travis Cain’s new Kidrobot toys, Best Friends Foreover (BFF), are about to hit the vinyl marketplace with a loud clatter. This delightful mini-series pairs sharp instruments with soft things–hot dogs, balloons, hearts–and is designed to reveal opposites that attract. Simple in execution but profound in ramification. Have you ever had toys like these? Meat and cleaver, stump and axe, tooth and decay? The possibilities are endless … or are they?
