So Miami did have some really cool things despite some of my dismal experiences…an unexpected surprise was a pass through the Kidrobot store. Since high fashion doesn’t appeal to me (this might change if I get a decent job later) and I had little interest in crappy souvenir stores or the retail stores we have in Atlanta, I didn’t know if the shopping in South Beach would have any appeal to me. But fear not techie toy loving dorks! Not only did the Mac store on Lincoln Ave have live DJs performing in a club-like atmosphere, but Kidrobot has a store just waiting for you on Miami Beach. Quirky fun toys and giant smoking rabbits! It was a wonderful atmosphere full of fun innovative little toys for adult kids.
Oddly enough, an entorage of very confident guys came in yelling and announcing something while I was browsing about. I asked a worker if I could have my picture taken with one of the giant smoking rabbits and the answer was no…not sure if it’s a store policy or because it turned out to be Lil Wayne shopping in the store. I hadn’t been paying attention to anyone else, as I was deep in my own paradise drooling over crazy little figurines. I didn’t realize who it was until I stepped out of the store and was met with fat lensed cameras and girls screaming “oh my god, it’s lil Wayne! If only I had gone into the store 5 minutes earlier! OMG!” I guess I was lucky to get in when I did? Oh well, that was my brush with the glitterati in South Beach.
I still would have rather had my picture taken with the giant smoking bunny.
