Artist Mimi Kirchner makes one-of-a-kind fabric toys that are way too nice to let your kids play with. Among her works is this jolly old-timey fellow with a handlebar mustache and chinoiserie tattoos. Dressed in striped pants with a red belt, the 22-1/2″ tall figure would look great standing watch in your living room.
After being left to care for her 8-year-old niece, a roboticist decides she could use some help. So she programs her prototype toy robot to be her niece’s companion. Naturally, the thing goes nuts in this horror from writer/producer James Wan, the man behind Saw, Insidious, and The Conjuring. In theaters 1.6.2023.
