A Munny is a figure made out of vinyl with movable joints. The figures are sold blank and the owner can decorate them using pens, pencils, markers, paint, and other supplies. Alternatively, many people commission artists to design Munnys for them, or artists design them to sell. While designing a Munny and other vinyl figures has gained mainstream attention in recent years, with many other companies and individuals designing similar platforms, the initial idea was undertaken by taggers (illegal artists) to display their works.
The original Munny is white in color, stands 7 inches tall, and weighs about 1 pound. All series include the 7 inch Munny with the white Munny still being the featured doll in the series. Other variations of the doll are:
Micro Munny - Same shape as the original Munny, but stands 2 inches tall. These were released in October 2012 and come blind-packed along with Foomis, Raffys, and Trikkys. Colors include Red, Yellow, White, Cyan, and Blue.
Mini Munny - Same shape as the original Munny, but stands 4 inches tall, originally released in February 2008. It was released in three different colors; Blue, White & Pink. The mini Munny comes packaged with one accessory, a "My Name Is" sticker, and a marker.
Mega Munny - Same shape as the original Munny, but stands 18 inches tall and weighs several pounds. Mega Munny is available in White, Teal, Pink, and Yellow. Although Mega Munny does not include any accessories, Mega Munny includes a large Practice sheet and a Coloring book.
Mini Munny Mobile- Mini Munny Mobile is a car which includes 1 white Mini Munny. Like the doll, the car is made out of vinyl. The car can seat 1 Mini Munny, has rolling wheels, and a windshield.
Other Munny Items
A variety of other Munny related items have been produced by Kidrobot.

Dunnys are similar to Munnys in that both are produced by Kidrobot and are vinyl figures, however Dunnys are a different shape, are only sold with designs already printed on them, and are produced in limited numbers. Dunnys have distinctive, rabbit-like ears at the top of their heads, unlike Munny which has two humanoid ears. Though they are sold already printed, artists routinely remove the factory-applied paint and apply their own designs, producing custom Dunnys. Dunnys are available in less locations than Munnys. They are sold in the Kidrobot stores in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, London, and Las Vegas, along with select designer toy retailers. Dunnys are designed and released in 8" versions several times a year and typically two blind boxed series of 3" Dunny figures are released each year.
- Recently, Rose Art, part of MEGA Brands America, Inc., has manufactured Color Blanks, which is like Munny, but is cheaper. There are many variations, including ones with cube-shaped heads, ones with hairdos, and "In Motion" packs.
