Toy Fair 2016: Kidrobot’s Mr. Sparkle Figure


Everybody loves Mr. Sparkle, because he’s disrespectful to dirt!

Isn’t it funny what snippets of media end up being enduringly popular? It’s always moments I’m sure the creators never expected to be sensationally popular, but that’s exactly what happened with Mr. Sparkle, the Japanese company logo that appeared quite briefly in The Simpsons. And while I knew Kidrobot was making Simpsons figures, I definitely would never have bet on a vinyl Mr. Sparkle. But here we are, with a shiny all-gold Mr. Sparkle to get your dishes sparkling and fresh. Or, you know, to look cute and goofy on your shelf.
