Desktop cool: a gallery of imported and independent toys
November 4, 2003 2:34 AM   Subscribe

The gallery of Kidrobot is a collection of toy photos I ran into on a recent search for a U.S. retailer of a desktop toy I wanted by Cube-Works. Outside of finding what I came for, I enjoyed just browsing the photos and descriptions. In the vein of "fair and balanced", I also found the toy at Sweatyfrog, which has some other neato-torpedo things.

Kidrobots NYC store is about a block west of the Mac store in SoHo. It's like KayBee for (almost) grown ups.

Ningyoushi's Workshop another store, but roughly similar.

Hackworth also mentioned Kidrobot in a holliday shopping discussion.

Apparently, Sweatyfrog will also help you roll your own.

I love Kid Robot. Easily one of my favorite stores on Haight Street.
