Why?

Post by RJ » Sun Oct 21, 2007 11:44 am

What's The Point Of These Things? If KR Is Trying To Make Peecol As Popular As Dunnys They Are So Wrong.

I Know Some People Like Peecol So I Do Welcome Hate Mail.

i'm always amazed that people don't understand kidrobot is in the business of making money.

there's certainly a component of developing product that their core market loves. in this case, the dunny. but the reality is, they've only got a few years they can make this product work. as much as the collector community doesn't want to hear it, these things are like beanie babies. KR can't keep making money off of them forever.

If you don't like them, that's fine. i don't like the fact that my daughter loves Barney. guess what, they're not marketing barney to me. but that doesn't mean i can't appreciate the quality of the toy or the marketing behind it.

so KR tires some new things. maybe it fails miserably, but maybe they can expand their customer base. the important thing is they're trying to develop new product lines. and if PEECOL or YO! GABBA GABBA is wildly successful, you can either get on the bandwagon, or rest easy knowing the money they make off the rest of us idiot consumers (that obviously don't know how lame we are for liking these toys) will keep less profitable product lines afloat.

it's called business folks. you don't have to like PEECOL to understand that.

Well, while I buy my 3 year old Kid Robot toys, I think their prices for items such as a child's Kid Robot sweatshirt are a joke - $100! This is twice what the fancy kids' clothesmakers charge - a joke, and a ripoff.
