Jason Hilbourne writes, "Can you help me spread the word about my new plush robot toys--the Bunk Bots? There are some goofy videos on youtube. The Bunk Bots are currently on sale at ThinkGeek.com." Jason got the idea for making robot plus toys when he noticed his boys bringing their "pointy plastic robot toys" to bed with them. Each Bunk Bot is about 20cm (8 in) tall and handmade of soft fleece. Jason has thoughtfully provided a FAQ that answers common questions about the Bunk Bots such as "Aren't these Bunk Bots just part of an evil plan to win the hearts and minds of humans so that it's easier for giant metal robots to take over the world in the future? On the contrary he notes in the FAQ, Bunk Bots may be our only salvation from an eventual robot uprising: "If the next generation knows more about robots... if we can influence more children to become gearheads... then, and only then, will humans have a fighting chance against the robot apocalypse." Bunk Bots are not the only robot plush toys around, of course. We've covered the Robot a Day project that produces cute robot bags that can double as toys. There are also lots of neat handmade robot plush toys to be found on places like Etsy such as the bitsandbots robot plushes or cutedesigns crocheted Amigurumi Grey Kawaii Robot
