WINNIE THE ROBOT Art Series by Carlos Dattoli

If you liked Winnie the Pooh when you were a kid but wished it had a little more in common with Mega Man, you are in for a treat. Artist Carlos Dattoli created these giant robot versions of the gang from the Hundred Acre Wood, and he explains a little bit of his inspiration in this note:

Yes... yes I did haha, I've turned Winnie Pooh and his friends into Giant robots!
But this has a very good reason for it...
The idea came up because when I was a little boy, McDonald's in one of their happy meals, gave some hamburgers toys, cups and fries, that you could turn into robots, and as a kid I remember loving those, even though they were very simple, so one day this idea got stocked in my mind, and I had to do it! and mix two things with nothing in common, and this is the result! 
(And yes... that little guy right there is Christopher Robin haha)

I actually remember those toys, although I’m still not quite sure how he made the leap to Winnie the Pooh…I guess those kinds of creative leaps are why he’s an artist and I’m an occasional blogger. You can check out the individual robots below. You can't quite call them "cuddly little puffs all stuffed with fluff" anymore.
