Celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Bedtime Bunnies with Peter Kato at Woot Bear

   Oh snap, just when you thought Peter Kato's Bedtime Bunnies couldn't be any cuter, now they've gone and gotten slippers made to look like the Woot Bear logo.  There's actually a good reason for it too, as Peter and his little resin friends will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary of existence at the store on Saturday, May 14th.  From 6-9pm you can go and meet Peter (who is like the nicest dude in the universe) pick up one of these exclusive bunnies, and even score some bonus accessories for them    like one of these cat cups or ducks:

I would drink my juice out of these for the rest of my life.

    Each accessory is random and you get one free with each bunny.  The good thing too is that if you're not lucky enough to live in San Francisco you have nothing to worry about because these Bedtime Bunnies will be available online as well through

Woot Bear Exclusive Bedtime Bunny from Peter Kato

    It's borderline criminal that nap times aren't factored into the average American work day.  Right now I get a half hour for lunch, which is barely enough time to make any progress in whatever book I'm reading at the time due to the constant interruptions.  For some reason a book is a magnet for unwanted conversation.  But beyond that, I think it should be mandatory that every business shut down for one hour to allow its employees to take a nap.  Actually, let's make it an hour and a half because it takes me forever to wake up and get my bearings, so a little bit of a cushion would be beneficial.  How did we grow up, brag about the fact that we were now adults and could eat cookies for dinner, and neglect the importance of a daily nap?  Travesty.

   I bet all the employees at Woot Bear take naps, cause they're reasonable folks.  And what better way to inspire your next bout of leisure time than with one of Peter Kato's Bedtime Bunnies.  This exclusive white bunny with pink slippers just wants you to take a break from the stress of your day so you don't snap and go on a rampage.  We all know you're on the brink.

    He'll be available Friday April 15th at noon pacific time.

Peter Kato's Bedtime Bunny Has Made the Jump to Vinyl

     How have I not been hearing about these for months?  Sometimes, secrets are not worth keeping, especially if you're making something cool that people are gonna want.  I had just heard about Peter Kato's Bedtime Bunnies being made in luxurious vinyl a few days ago and thought I missed my chance to write about them.  But somehow they're still some of these January Blues edition available for all those who didn't get one yet.  It stands 6 inches tall, retails for $40, and is an edition of only 50.  Get on it before you miss out by visiting this link.  Produced by the folks at Clutter Magazine.

Yellow Sunshine Bunnies from Peter Kato Available Tonight!

    I happen to live in the Northeastern United States and there was a time in the not so distant past (like, last week) that we thought winter was going to be measured like in Game of Thrones.  It was gonna last for 8 years, our skin would become translucent like those cave critters that live in the dark their whole lives, and we'd have to stock up on Dragon Glass to protect ourselves from shriveled yet frightening abominable snow men.  Thankfully, the sun has returned to us and we shall enjoy fried foods on our boardwalks while wearing the least amount of clothing allowed by law.  Rejoice!

     Peter Kato is obviously thrilled about the return of warm weather because he has captured the spirit of the season in these Yellow Sunshine Bunnies.  If you want to snag your own bit of summer you'll have your chance tonight at 8pm eastern time when they go on sale through

Bedtime Bunny Danglers and More from Peter Kato

      Yesterday I was driving, well inching my way forward, in Philadelphia traffic and could have really used one.  To start with, the main highways in and around the city are very narrow and in a state of such disrepair that you would think auto mechanics had a hand in keeping them that way to drum up business.  Secondly, everyone is already angry for some reason and when you put them in traffic with merging cars and people attempting to make an exit from four lanes away it doesn't do anything to stop that.  The city is due for a new mayor yet none of the campaign commercials have addressed this at all. They harp on making neighborhoods safer and raising money for schools and tons of other issues, but i think everything can be solved with making people just a little happier.  That's why if I was elected mayor (which I don't know why I wouldn't be) I would by one of these Bedtime Bunny Danglers for everyone in the city to hang from their rearview mirrors.  Picture it now:  your level of anger is about to go from slow simmer to power boil cause you just knocked your cars alignment out of whack on a pot hole and some guy in a Mercedes who was talking on his cell phone just cut you off without so much as a courtesy signal.  You're about to go full nuclear when you notice one of Peter Kato's pastel rabbits swinging back and forth with a face so cute it could melt iron.  I just lowered the homicide rate single handedly with the help of some resin bunnies.  

    I think at $15 each, those danglers are a bargain that you can't pass up, especially when you're talking about saving lives.  But that's not all he'll have going up in his shop tonight at 8pm eastern time, as there will also be 10 Sleepytime Bunnies for $12 each.  Each one is hand made and totes adorbs (that's for the kids out there.  I am so not out of touch).

Metallic Blue Bad Knight from Peter Kato

    How come all the bad knights in film wear black?  It's a dead giveaway that they're up to no good.  Take the black knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  If he had been wearing any other color of armor he could have used the element of surprise to overwhelm his opponent.  Instead, he lost his limbs, bled all over the place, and was made to look a fool.  If you wanna be a black knight, you should be black in spirit and deed, not in your clothing choices.

    Peter Kato totally gets the importance of stealth because his Bad Knights are decked out in metallic  blue.  Who's gonna feel threatened by someone so sparkly?  The good guys are gonna show up, think they have the wrong castle cause these dudes can't be the jerks they were looking for, and then WHAM...the bad guys win.

    You can build your own army of unassuming evil doers when these go on sale tonight at 8pm eastern time at  Limited to only 8 pieces, each one will cost $40.

Just In Time for Valentine's Day: Peter Kato's "Eye Heart Bunnies"

    Valentine's Day is a weird holiday.  It's timing is so close to Christmas that most of us are still broke and trying to scrounge up extra cash wherever we can, but we still feel like we have to remind that special someone that we love them.  Usually Sharon and I pick somewhere to go rather than exchanging gifts, and the best Valentine's Day we ever had was when we went to see monster trucks and I almost got into a fight with a drunk hillbilly with unruly kids.  The kids were literally jumping in their seats and landing in my lap so of course I said something about it.  Then he got mouthy and decided he wasn't gonna take anyone telling him how his little spawn should be dropped of at the SPCA, and he stood up, egged on by the countless beers he had downed throughout the event.  What he had in alcoholic courage he lacked in physical stature, as he weighed all of 120 lbs.  See, he wasn't one of those scary rednecks that look like they were raised on chicken feed and human growth hormone, but instead one of the tiny ones with the curled under baseball hat brim and the sewer rat face.  He looked me up and down, realized that he could comfortably move his family into one of my shoes, and sobered up faster than anyone I've ever seen.  It helped at the time that my hair and beard were extremely long and I looked like I may have just gotten paroled.

    Those are the stories that love are made of my friends.  But if there aren't any monster truck rallies or professional wrestling matches to take your sweetheart to this year, may I present to you an amazing alternative.  Peter Kato has whipped up a batch of these special Eye Heart Bunnies just in time for the big day.  You can choose from pink or blue and they are $25 each (each color is limited to 12 pieces).  He's also making available some of his adorable Sleeptime Bunnies for just $12 each (limited to 20 pieces).  Snag em this Thursday, February 5th at 8pm eastern time only at

Alice In Wonderland Bedtime Bunnies from Candie Bolton x Peter Kato

    Have you ever thought about just how Alice fell down a rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland?  How big was that freakin bunny that it could dig a hole wide enough to swallow up a kid?  Or was he just an overachiever who was trying to show off his advanced constructing skills? Yeah, I know it's not based on a true story and that its a pretty wacky story overall.  I just want to make sure that there isn't some species of mutant bunnies trying to get rid of mankind on the sly.  What if they're responsible for those sinkholes you always hear about that cars and houses fall into?  I think this needs more investigation.

    Don't let the new panic I've instilled in you take away from this amazing collaboration between Candie Bolton and Peter Kato.  She's given 10 of his Bedtime Bunnies the Wonderland treatment and you could be lucky enough to own one when they go on sale tonight at 6pm eastern time only at  Each one is $75 and comes packaged like a deck of cards.

Peter Kato is Gonna Make Christmas Even Cuter With His Latest Releases

    I don't know how people manage to live in those parts of the world that stay dark for months at a time, because the weather here has been depressing.  Though it's far from being as black as midnight out, everything is just covered in a shade of grey that makes you want to stay in bed till well after lunch time.  We desperately need something to brighten up our lives when the outside world refuses to, and that's where Peter Kato comes in with his festive resin creations.  

    There's bunnies everywhere!!!!!  There's sleeping bunnies, and polka dot bunnies, and even bunnies for your Christmas tree.  

    Ok, I know you just squealed with excitement, so let me give you all the pertinent details.  Everything you see above goes on sale tomorrow, December 11th, at 8pm eastern time only from  These always sell out fast, so be ready to get down to business if you want one.  

     Now if you are of keen eye you might have noticed something that looks completely different/no rabbit like.  That is the work of Kevin Nam, who approached Peter about doing an internship with him.  Having no prior experience, Peter taught him as much as he could then challenged him to make his own toy.  The result is Big Top, which actually spins and has three separate hands that each represent either rock paper or scissors, so you can play against a friend or your most competitive cat.  They come in a few different colors and will be $30 each.

NYCC Exclusive Eti the Space Nurse from Peter Kato x Cubo NY

    Why is it that whenever you hear people talk about being abducted by aliens all they can focus on is the fact they got probed.  It doesn't seem to be that big of a deal that a species from somewhere in the galaxy travelled all the way to Earth, thought they'd be cool to snatch, and then kidnaps them for an undisclosed period of time.  It's the fact that they were violated in the name of alien science.  It seems weird to me, that if a race of beings is so far advanced that they can create these super fast space ships to visit strange planets that the only thing they'd be concerned with is the inner workings of our butts.  What I think happens in a lot of these abductions is that the people were probably really drunk and hanging around these back country roads (where all of these abductions take place) and some hillbilly picked them up and played doctor with them in his conversion van.  The SyFy channel should be calling me any minute.

    This is how I prefer to think of aliens, as these super chill critters who are just looking to help.  Peter Kato has gone so far as to suggest that many are employed in the health care field and traveling all over the galaxy curing rare diseases.  Take Eti here, a nurse with a heart of gold that makes house calls you may not even know you need.  This figure is a collaboration between Peter and Cubo NY, who is a toyshop/3d printing service.  She's limited to only 20 pieces, will sell for $60 each, and is a New York Comic Con exclusive for Cubo NY's booth # 501.  And she comes with that cool syringe stand that they should sell in life-size versions so I can get one for my living room.

NYCC Exclusive Sleeptime Bunnies from Peter Kato x myplasticheart

    OH MY GOD I AM OVERWHELMED WITH THE ADORABLENESS OF THESE!!!!  Ok, I'm trying to compose myself, but it's not gonna be easy.  I want to put all of theses bunnies in my mouth and carry them with me wherever I go.  I kinda wanna eat em too though, as they look like those Halloween candies I used to eat when I was a kid.

    Why, these very ones in fact.  Behold, the magic of the internet!  Though I have to admit I was a little biased and only ate the yellow and orange ones.  Back then the flavors I rejected just ended up in the trash, but now when I buy a bag of assorted candy I take the crappy ones to work and put them in the communal candy jar.  Not only am I not being wasteful, but I am also tricking my coworkers into thinking I'm a nice person and not someone who would push them into traffic with very little provocation.  Plus, it's easier to shove someone into the path of oncoming cars if they aren't expecting it.  It's survival of the fittest, punks!

    But really, these bunnies are about the cutest things you'll ever see in your life.  Peter Kato is introducing this newest line of critters in a special Sweet Harvest Edition as an exclusive for myplasticheart at New York Comic Con.  They are limited to only 30 pieces, sold blind, at at only $12 each will probably not last very long.  Get to booth # 113 early to get one.

The Bad Knight from Peter Kato Debuts Tomorrow!

    I'm all for keeping the past alive, it's a very important thing to do.  But there are some things that you shouldn't still practice today even though it may have been popular once.  Like witch burnings (you never get the smell out of your clothes) or dying of small pox, or jousting.  Maybe hundreds of years ago the idea of two armor-clad dudes on horse back riding full speed at each other with wooden poles seemed like a good idea, but when your life expectancy was so short you didn't really have to be that concerned about your personal well being.  Now if you take a lance to the chest and smack your head on the ground, chances are you'll live to be very old and very dumb.  Yet even with the threat of being turned into a vegetable ever looming, people are actually doing this again.  I grew up in the South and we did some pretty dumb stuff when we were bored, but we never got medieval about it.   Supposedly the lances they use are designed to break apart more easily, which to me means that instead of dying from blunt force trauma you'll just bleed to death from an overly ambitious splinter in your neck.  

    You want a real man's sport?  Try typing while you have a cat dancing on your keyboard.  Half the time when I post this stuff I'm never sure what actually makes it onto the internet.  Words get switched around, entire sentences get deleted.  Yes, the threat of bodily harm is pretty low, but occasionally you get the errant claw or tooth that will let you know how displeased they are at you for interrupting their fun.  Cat's hair and my blood are caked beneath every key, which sounds like it could be poetic, or something.  

    Peter Kato's Bad Knight figure looks like he probably isn't into extreme typing like I am.  Probably because he doesn't have actual hands, which could be a hinderance.  He's one mean looking dude though, and you can get one to guard all of your valuables when he goes on sale tomorrow night at 9pm Eastern time through  He'll be offering up 8 of them in this color scheme as well as an edition of 12 of his Ninja-Robo figures you see below.

Bedtime Bunnies Artist Series from Peter Kato featuring Andrea Kang

    OH MY GOD are these not the cutest things you've ever seen?  These remind me of marshmallows, and kittens, and the smell of my grandparent's attic, and sleeping in until noon.  These are beyond amazing and they should be sent to a factory somewhere so they can make enough so that everyone in the world is mailed one and they just have a better day.  That's the only way I can think to express how I feel about these Peter Kato Bedtime Bunnies that have been painted up by Andrea Kang.  This is the first time that another artist has embellished them and they are so adorable my head might explode, causing my wife to find quite the mess when she gets home from work.  

   Only 10 of these exist and they go on sale tonight at 9pm Eastern time only at

Teal Bedtime Bunnies from Peter Kato

    When you have a house full of cats there really is no need for an alarm clock, because they will take turns waking you up every few hours anyway.  For animals that like to nap so much, you would think they would have a healthy respect for my need to rest.  Early on in the night it starts out with a headbutt here and there and it's kinda cute, but the closer it gets to morning that's when their efforts get harsher.  For instance, I woke up this morning because one of them was trying to separate my pinky toe from the rest of my foot.  My theory is that they are either worried that we are dead and we can no longer turn on their favorite tv shows for them or that they're checking to see if they can eat us yet.  Sharon and I have tried to combat their need to wake us with tooth and claw by a blanket we call "cat armor".  It is merely a thick comforter that has thus proven impenetrable to their attack methods when we are at our most vulnerable.  The problem is when you get too hot and you peek a foot or a whole leg out from its protective embrace, thus sending out a signal that you are asking to be blood let.  

    While I descend into eventual madness from a lack of good sleep you should make yourself ready to welcome new Bedtime Bunnies into your life.  Peter Kato is releasing his latest edition in teal.  There are 24 figures in total, with 2 different sizes to choose from and variations in tones throughout.  They will be released tomorrow, August 7th, at 9pm only at

New Bedtime Bunnies from Peter Kato

    So yesterday I'm driving home from work and I pass by this huge open field where I normally see turkeys and deer roaming around eating their dinner.  Usually they're nowhere close to one another, respecting some invisible boundary that they've obviously agreed upon.  But last night they were all intermingled.  It was kinda weird seeing them all mixed together just chillin.  I have a hard time getting my cats to not torment one another and they're all the same species, and here we have these two very different creatures enjoying a dinner party.  

   I realize that there weren't any bunnies in that story, but I'd like to think the field was filled with them, they were just too short for me to see as I drove by.  Could you imagine if there were bunnies the size of deer?  That would take them from cute to frightening real fast. 

    I swear to you all this is going somewhere eventually.  Tomorrow night at 9pm, Peter Kato will be releasing another round of his insanely popular Bedtime Bunnies.  There will be 24 of the dark purple and hot pink ones, while there will be 12 more of the all pink ones in case you missed them before.  Each figure comes in either small or medium sizes and thankfully none are the size of dairy cows.

Lizzie: The New Resin Figure from Peter Kato

    Lizards get a bad rap.  Most of it I feel is due to that Godzilla character who's always stomping on poor Tokyo and leaving a general mess of things.  Most lizards will never be mutated by radiation and wreak havoc on our infrastructure, but all we ever see are the one's that are behaving badly.  What about all of their humanitarian efforts?  You never hear about that stuff because the media is biased. 

    Just look at these Lizzies from Peter Kato.  They look more apt to ask you how your day is going than to step on your brand new Buick.  These are the types of lizards that would help you clean up after a particularly messy get together, or offer you sound financial advice when determining just how to invest your 401k.  Each one is completely hand made and limited to 15 pieces for this inaugural offering.  Get one for yourself this Thursday, July 10th, at midnight for $35 from

More Bedtime Bunnies from Peter Kato

    Attempting to sleep in my house seems like more of an event than it really should be.  You have to make sure your feet are tucked securely beneath a blanket that has proven to be both bite and scratch proof, otherwise you will be awoken with sharp little pains followed by trickles of blood.  Our kitten Jorah has made it his life's mission to eradicate the world of useless toes.  And just the other night I awoke to the little warning coughs of an impending hairball just in time to avoid it being deposited on my forehead by Ophelia.  My pillow and the sheets were unfortunate casualties of the incident, but I rejoiced in making it out relatively unscathed.  

    I wish sleep could be less of a contact sport and as peaceful as it looks on the faces of Peter Kato's Bedtime Bunnies.  I bet they awake refreshed and without new scars from hyperactive kittens.  He's debuting a new color combination of orange and grey and well as restocking his pink and white versions.  They will go on sale this Thursday, June 19th, at midnight for $20 for the 3 inch versions, while the slightly smaller 2 and 1/2 inch ones will be $12.  They sell out every time they are offered, so get to early and be ready.

More Bedtime Bunnies from Peter Kato to be Released Tonight at Midnight

    The timing of these Bedtime Bunny posts always coincide with a night that I didn't sleep very well.  Last night I didn't sleep well at all.  The younger cats decided that they were going to practice their wrestling moves by recreating last week's Smackdown, while my stomach burned with indigestion and I was too tired to get out of bed to take anything for it.  And of course this never happens when I don't have to get up early and drive an hour to work.  Uggh, it's gonna be a long day.

    But how can I possibly have a bad outlook on the day in the face of such cuteness?  I can't, though I would still like to sneak a nap in somewhere.  How long do you think I could sleep in the bathroom at work before anyone would notice?    Peter Kato is releasing more of his uber popular sleepy time rabbits tonight at midnight and they will include all black versions, Pepto pink, and white ones with either blue or pink slippers.  They come in two different sizes and will most likely sell out quickly, so make sure you're wide awake tonight so you can get a few.  If you need any help staying awake I've got a few ill behaved felines I could send your way.

myplasticheart Exclusive Bedtime Bunnies from Peter Kato

     Cancel your plans today folks, cause this is more important.  Unless you didn't file your taxes yet, in which case you better fill out those forms and make a quick trip to the post office so you don't have to go to jail.  Happy tax day everyone!

    The last time Peter Kato released these Bedtime Bunnies they sold out pretty quickly, so I would expect the same thing to happen with this batch when they release today from myplasticheart.  This assortment of 20 figures will be sold blind with a special gold chase version included in the mix.  And they're only $20, so keep an eye on their website for when they're available.
