Too young for printmaking classes? No silk screening courses at the community center? Get the kid their own Andy Warhol Little Thinker doll from The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild. It will help tide them over until the little artistic genius has their 15 minutes of fame.
Andy Warhol was a leading figure in the world of pop art (a.k.a. the rebellious, devil-may-care cousin of the traditional fine arts movement) and pop culture in general. Instead of hobnobbing with bohemian intellectuals at his studio, this mini Mr. Warhol will be hanging out with your budding artist. They’ll play at the park together, read bedtime stories together, and secretly discuss how they could alter the ottoman in your living room so it may be considered found art.
This little Warhol stands 12 inches tall and comes complete with red glasses and a sharp red blazer. He sports a black turtleneck, which, as we all know, is par for the course in terms of artist garb. Even if your little one hasn’t yet discovered Eight Elvises or the Marilyn prints, they’ll love playing with this hip, quirky doll — and let’s face it, playgroup, with it’s Wuggle Pets and Tonka trucks, could definitely use a little more quirk.
Our only disclaimer: don’t blame us if the kid starts painting nothing but cans of soup and insisting on wearing a crazy silver wig everywhere.
