The Zombie Kid action figure – Handmade toy
If you ever want to know the definition of a “meme” look no further than “the zombie kid.” The year is 2007 and the family of Jonathon Ware go to Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Oregon to have some fun at the annual Rose Festival. 10 year old Jonathon goes to a face painting booth (which happened to be next to a turtle booth, remember this because its important later) and gets his face painted like a zombie. Now zombie Jonathon is walking around the park minding his own business when he grabs the attention of a local news anchor doing a live story on the festival. She cant resist putting little Jonathon on the spot and says to him “Jonathon just got an awesome face paint job, what do you think?” she puts the microphone in his face and without skipping a beat he says “I like turtles.” And just like that a meme is born, 63 million viewers agreed. Well, she did ash him what he thought and that was an honest answer.
This is a very unique and extremely rare handmade toy in quality packaging. Many hours were spent on this piece to produce the final product you see here. Careful attention to details are apparent in this truly a one-of-a-kind piece of collectable memorabilia. The card back is printed on high quality card stock as good if not better than what you will find with any mass produced toy. This piece will enhance any toy collection and sure to be a huge head turner. Also makes the perfect gift for the toy connoisseur in your life.
Note: This is more of an art piece rather than an actual toy and therefore is not intended to be opened, just for display. But if you purchase it you can do what you want with it, its yours after all, I’m just sayin…
