The company has just announced its collaboration with Schifter + Partners (former owners of LeSportsac) to produce a handbag and accessories collection that will debut this fall, WWD reports. Here’s what will be hitting shelves:

The Kidrobot accessories collection with Schifter + Partners includes two groups, one in nylon and the other in canvas. The nylon styles retail from $45 to $275 and feature the Kidrobot Grid and Toy Pile-up prints. The 12 styles include duffles, totes, and backpacks on which three Kidrobot toys — the Smorkin’ Labbit, Mini Munny, and Yummy Breakfast — attach to the side. The accessories include cosmetics cases and electronic cases for cell phones and iPods.

The cotton canvas group retails from $25 to $125. Eight styles come available in black, brown, and magenta. Each bag and small accessory is decorated with the Kidrobot print in reflective silver ink. One toy is attached to the side.

Kidrobot plans to keep tight control of the line’s distribution and update the collection frequently. “Our products are always changing and our store is always changing its great design,” Kidrobot founder Paul Budnitz told WWD. “There’s almost nothing that we’ve done that hasn’t sold out, eventually.”
