This morning’s post about dixie cups got me thinking about housewares and remembering this bit of merchandise from last summer’s NY International Gift Fair. Well here they are! Aladdin makes recycled plastic into art, specifically artist bowls and insulated art mugs. Jon has two pieces in Artist Series 1. The 20 oz dishwasher and microwave-safe art bowl has an easy grip art-lid and is free of BPAs. The 12 oz mug is dishwasher and car-cup friendly with a flip lid and is also delightfully bereft of those BPAs. DIY blank mugs in 8 and 16 oz sizes are also offered for those of you customizers out there.
I like the language Aladdin uses and their commitment to recycling. Fun stuff you can feel good about. Both items are priced at $20 each through Aladdin or for slightly cheaper among Jon’s art at Kidrobot online. Dang it if Jon and Buff Monster aren’t going to make me start wearing and eating more pink. Here’s a bit more about Aladdin. Check ‘em!
Aladdin has been creating lifestyle products for people just like you since 1908. From the character lunch boxes you remember as a kid, to the sleek mug you use to tote your morning coffee, we’re committed to creating unique food and beverage solutions that fit your lifestyle. Products that are sustainable, stylish, and above all, functional. Products to love.
Elektrodrop is a “creative collective of designers, artists, fashion, music and lifestyle enthusiasts trying to get by in this crazy world.” Following the instructions in Jon’s pre-signing tweet, they brought along a truly random object to have burgerized: the common dixie cup. The results really elevate this formerly disposable object. The Elektrodrop crew also picked up a customized Munny and an autographed microfiber cleaning cloth. For the entire roundup of doodled objects from the KR London signing, click here.
It’s been great seeing the variety of objects fans brought to Jon’s Kidrobot London signing. To be fair, he did send out a tweet inviting people to bring out the crazy. Both photos courtesy of Kidrobot’s Flickr set. Click here to see the full array of random doodled objects.
An innovative fan brought a set of nesting dolls to Jon’s Kidrobot London signing, and here are the jealousy-inducing results. For a roundup of all the unusual objects Jon doodled that evening, click here.

I really wasn’t feeling these new Munnyworld figures from Kidrobot until I saw these pictures from Jon’s recent signing at the KR London shop. Maybe it’s that I’m biased toward Jon’s art, or maybe it’s just refreshing to see something other than the same old Munny (even if the new Munnyworld shapes aren’t exaclty “new”). But whichever way you slice it, I’m really digging these doodles. Lucky Londoners. Photos from Kidrobot’s Flickr set. You can see all the customized objects from Jon’s signing in this post.
On December 17th, Jon did a signing at Kidrobot’s London location. Beforehand, he used twitter to encourage people to “bring crazy things along to be doodlearized, sillier the better!” The fans really came through with toys, clocks, cups, cars, clothes and even a plastic pigeon. And Jon gamely doodled it all. Looked like a great time. Photos via Kidrobot, The Daily Street, and Elektrodrop. Posts about the individual objects to follow all morning, so stay tuned to Doodlesplatter!
