The Bunk Bots are a series of 10 plush robots in 3 shades of grey that come with their own backstory and personality. These plush Bots can go where other robots cannot to keep your little engineer company. Their slogan says it best; “Crazy soft robots? Yep.”
PINCH used to be a car welder robot. Yeah, he still likes cars, but now he mostly just cruises around doing his favorite dance move, “the robot”.
Toy assembler robot? Cool! STEPPER even helped build Bunk Bots. He’s usually all clammed up, but he also does a great “robot voice”.
What is up with OTTO? Is he angry, or just plain tired? He used to be an airplane auto-pilot robot, but now he mostly dreams about skydiving…
Ninja SERVO used to be a deep-sea diver robot, but he doesn’t go in the water anymore. Now he practices ninja moves and builds shoebox submarines.
When SERVO was a space explorer robot, he collected rock samples on Mars. Now he just likes to smash dirt clods, and rock-out with his friends.
Sewer-inspector robot? What kind of a job is that?! Well… it was a stinky job. TRACKS now prefers to smell things like cheeseburgers and motor oil.
X-ray OTTO was a heart surgeon robot. Robot? Check. Razor-sharp scalpel? Check. Wait… what?! Hey! Who gave that thing a giant metal drill?!
Stealth TRACKS was a security guard robot. On patrol, he would make sure that bad guys weren’t sneaking around. Now, he does the sneaking around!
Commando STEPPER was a crop harvester robot. Wheat, soybeans, corn–he cut it all! Now he has two sharp pincers and too much free time.
Night-vision PINCH was a speed-reader robot, but now he mostly just reads comics. And he likes to crush things with his two giant grabbers.
Jason Hilbourne is a product design engineer who lives in Portland, Oregon. His two boys used to bring pointy plastic robot toys into their bunk beds at night. One day, Hilbourne asked his wife Greta, “How can they sleep with those sharp claws poking them in the ribs?” Then he went to the lab and got to work. After five-year-old Sam used the first soft Bunk Bot prototype (and a fierce little robot voice) to round up some stuffed animals in the corner of his room, Hilbourne knew that he was on to something.
