Recap: “Bedtime Stories” My Plastic Heart

This weekend we stopped by My Plastic Heart in New York for the opening of Peter Kato‘s custom Bedtimes Bunnies show, “Bedtime Stories.” The show featured over 30 artists and their interpretation of Kato’s bunny figure in different styles. Many of the customs on display were in cute form, like Kato’s original resin figure, while others took on a different side of the toy. We even saw a motorized Bedtime Bunnie doing the running man dance!
