About

The Bopbo is a fresh new take on designer vinyl toys by also making it interactive. Bopbo aims to embrace the culture of: designer toys, music, creative arts, technology and just pure fun. We hope you enjoy it.

The Bopbo was conceived by two friends: Jason Gouw and David Zhen. As admirers and fans of designer toys, we hope to grow with the toy community. Through the Bopbo, we hope to gain fans from seasoned collectors and welcome a whole new generation of fans. 

What is Bopbo?

Bopbo is a Do-It-Yourself designer vinyl that stands 6.5 inches tall. Bopbo comes in a blank white vinyl material which will allow a variety of mixed medias to be applied to create custom designs. You can keep it a nice pristine white or let loose your imagination and personalize your own unique Bopbo. We didn't stop there. Bopbo is also embedded with a microphone that can sense the beat of music. Once it hears music, Bopbo will rock out to your favorite track. It is completely wireless and powered by a single battery.

How does it work?

Simply place Bopbo next to any speaker or music source and Bopbo will bop its head to your favorite tracks automatically. The Bopbo is programmed to detect and analyze different beat algorithms and will bob it's head accordingly; 1/2 beats, syncopated beats, and pauses included!

How do I customize it?

Bopbo comes in a pure white vinyl which allows users to customize their own with the use of pens, markers, acrylic paints, sculpting clay, and whatever else you can imagine. Bopbo represents a new wave of designer toys which combines ART x TECH x MUSC. 

Cool Exclusives!

Specifically for Kickstarter, we are offering a very limited edition Bopbo in a Kickstarter Green color. These are made with green vinyl, not just a standard respray. We will only make enough for our pledgers. We won't ever release these again after this. We'll also sign the bottom of the lil Bopbo feet. Be proud to say you were with us since the beginning!

Bopbo keychains! Support Bopbo with as little as $10 to get a rubber keychain showing your contribution!

We need your help!

Creation of molds are expensive. We have to create molds for not only the Bopbo, but also the actuator inside, as well as sourcing all of the components that allow the Bopbo to rock with you. With your help, we will unleash Bopbo anywhere music is played. We also hope to see everyone's customs and to have the opportunity to collaborate with other artists. The estimated MSRP on a Bopbo when sold in stores will be $49.95. As a huge thanks we're offering everyone a discount on Kickstarter. Every dollar counts and we're extremely appreciative of every single pledge amount. Rock the pledge!

We'll continue to update everyone of our progress on both our official website as well as our Kickstarter site. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest updates.

Bopbo will look great anywhere. Visit www.bopbo.com for more photos and media.

(please note: these images are of the prototype Bopbo. The final versions will be made of vinyl and will have much smoother edges, curves, and surfaces)
