Tawabo (from ‘tower’ and ‘robot’) isn’t just any old robot though. This one can speak no less than four languages – Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean – which should come in handy seeing that the tower receives around overseas visitors a year.

“Their batteries have probably all melted. I’m a bad robot mom,” says the photographer Mary Ellen Mark, looking with wry affection at the crowd of robots — pink fembots in frilly aprons!

Sometimes robots like to stop and smell the flowers too... Flowerbot did just that, and now they've become part of her design! She stands about 3.5" tall and comes attached to her own "grassy" hand-painted wooden display base.  This is a unique, one-of-a-kind (OOAK) custom urban vinyl art toy.
