Pino // I Had A Bad Day

Previous Next

We’ve all had our share of lousy days, but it’s safe to say that our poor puppet pal is having one one of the worst ever. Fools Paradise’s Pino // I Had A Bad Day vinyl art toy sees the wooden boy transformed into a wicked Joker. With his splotchy DIY makeup and his forced smile, this fairy tale has turned into a nightmare.

The devil as they say, is in the details. Fools Paradise fleshes out the mashup concept with thoughtful deco touches throughout including Pino’s dirt smudged clothes and the spot-on sloppy makeup style including the uneven areas at the top of his forehead. Building up the mood, our tormented Pino takes a break on a simple, yet realistically textured concrete block — all alone in his twisted world. Dare we ask what’s become of the cricket companion? The new Pino figure follows the more upbeat Clockwork Pino releases.

A made-to-order edition of no more than 499, the Pino // I Had A Bad Day vinyl art toy (13″) vinyl art toy is available for pre-order from Fools Paradise for $368 (worldwide shipping included). The figure is slated to ship in Q1 2022. Please note that the product photos are of a prototype. The final figure may feature slight changes or variations from the prototype.
