Munny - that's what I want!

What is Munny I hear you ask?

Munny is DIY vinyl art toy created by Kidrobot. You decorate Munny yourself using paint, pens, blow torches or just about anything you can think of. Munny comes in a range of colours including white, black, pink and glow in the dark. Munny comes with random accessories depending on which series you get.
The first Dunny (another similar art toy by Kid Robot) that really caught my attention a few years ago was the Ketchup Dunny by SKET ONE (above). Since then, Munny culture has gone nuts, and people are doing some seriously awesome things with Munny. There are Munny exhibitions going down all over the place by people who customise these awesome little guys - not to mention some amazing functional modifications... like turning these little guys into speakers!

The awesome Munny speakers above were made by Fungus Amungus. You'll find a detailed step-by-step guide to making these little guys here. Here are a few other awesome Munny speakers found on Flickr (click the mosaic to find the full size images).

You can get yourself a 4" Mini Munny for AUD$20 each from the super cool Robio in Melbourne. Shipping is a little extra, but it's much easier than getting them internationally...
