What is a Dunny  

The Dunny is a  3, 8 or 20-inch vinyl figure based on the shape of a rabbit with very distinctive tubular ears and was create by Paul Budnitz and Tristan Eaton and produced by Kidrobot in 2004.

The Dunny is a “blank” figure which Kidirobot send out to renowned artists and designers to “decorate” or “style” it to their taste, thereby creating a unique and original product, some artist have even produced Dunnys’ as tall as 4 feet

The name is a cross between street slang and one of the early prototypes, a “Devil Bunny”. The articulation is very basic with a 360-degree turning head and articulated arms. Some also come with accessories depending on the theme.

They are usually sold as blind boxes or bags, which means you don’t know which figure you will get inside the packaging. They are generally sold separately or in cases of 18-24.
