What is a Munny???

Well, a while ago as I was looking at Rosie O'Donnell's web site, (I just love her what can I say), I saw photos of these guys...they are so funny to me, a company named Kidrobot makes them, they come in 3 sizes I think. They come unpainted so you can put your stamp on them, be an artist, there is a whole world of people out there involved with these little guys and a few others from the same company...

So the other day we were in London & walking, window shopping on Oxford St. & what do you know, there he was, the biggest Munny I have ever seen in person, this was a plain blue one & in the window of a store...it was hubby who pointed out the window belonged to Selfridges, which is one of the most famous department stores in the world...packed with designer tummies after designer yummies, this one very simple dress I liked was £1275.00 that is about $1810.00 so it is a bit of a high priced place, needless to say we need a couch when we get home, so the dress will have to wait for now...this guy was in the window...he was so cute, check out below what Rosie does with the ones she sells in her etsy shop for charity. She sells them really fast so the one below might be sold by the time you get there...

Hi Jelveh:
OK. Two comments this time.
What is the cost of one small munny?
What in the heck does one do with one?

Hi Ginny, I think the small ones, the one Rosie plays with costs about $9.99, it comes with a toy that it can hold in its hand, a marker and something else...then you get to paint it or make it something other than what it looks like, here is a link to the world competion entries of what you can do with your munny... http://www.flickr.com/groups/minimunnycontest/
Rosie paints hers with Sharpies I think and gives them life, hers sell for $200 each all for charity so that is cool...but they have become the big collectable...this is where you can buy them http://kidrobot.com/products.cfm?OF11=PROMO7&gclid=CPLKyeKihJkCFQ48QwodwkHUnQ
their tag line is you and munny can make art possible...some of the ones on fliker the first link, are so cool...
