REVIEW: Kidrobot x Andy Warhol Cat Plush Collection

Reviewing plush is tough. What’s there really to say about a soft, huggable collectible of your favorite >insert character here< from your favorite >insert license here<? They are what they are.


Kidrobot shakes things up a bit by introducing a new line of plush that actually has a fascinating story behind them.


Presenting Kidrobot’s new  Andy Warhol Cat Plush Collection:

Andy Warhol published a series of cat portraits in 1954 titled, “25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy” as a collaboration with his mother Julia Warhola to honor the numerous felines they had. This book was privately printed by the artist in small quantities featuring blotted-line watercolor drawings in vibrant pop-art colors. Kidrobot and The Andy Warhol Foundation have teamed up to bring his iconic portraits of Warhol’s much-loved cats into your home!


This trio of colorful felines instantly caught my eye on display at Toy Fair; Kidrobot’s Warhol Cat Plush standing out as unique pieces of art, which of course, is exactly what they are. I’m not a huge fan of Andy Warhol’s art (bold and innovative, but highly overrated), but these simplistic, colorful cat designs speak to me. I’m a huge cat lover too, so I’m sure that played a factor.


Unlike most plush toys which I find extremely awkward to display (they’re not particularly shelf friendly), Kidrobot’s Warhol Cat Plush are designed more like decorative throw pillows. They add a fun pop of color and whimsy to your home decor. Place them on the couch. Rest them in the corner of a room. Just like real cats, the Kidrobot x Andy Warhol Cat Plush should look good wherever you lay them. Well, maybe not the kitchen table. Or counter. 


The Kidrobot x Andy Warhol Cat Plush Collection is available to order now through priced at $29.99 each. There are three colors to collect, each plush measuring between 14 inches to 20 inches: Orange Sam the Cat, One Blue Pussy Cat and Yellow Sam the Cat
