What’s your kid wearing for Halloween? He’s not going as Batman, is he? I see, like, a trillion child Batmans running around every Halloween, all wearing that foam (plastic?) muscle bib chestplate deal, with snowpants so they don’t catch a cold. Parents, your child isn’t going to catch a cold. He’s the goddamned Batman.

Anyway, the point is, your kid’s Halloween costume is stupid – muscle bib or no. If you really wanna have a pissing contest with the other parents on the block, you’ll consider the Kid’s Walker from Sakakibara Kikai.

Obviously from Japan, the Kid’s Walker is a robot that… well, honestly, it doesn’t really ‘walk’, per se, but no one ever said it couldn’t shuffle with the best of ’em. The best of ’em being, in this case, other shuffling robots, I guess.

No word on whether the arms are functional, but they look like they should be – perhaps this kid’s just a novice driver. If you can read Japanese, feel free to hit up the website and fill us in. Either way, this is inarguably the most hardcore costume idea I’ve ever seen for the under-18 crowd.
