What is Kaws on TikTok?
TikTok users have been winding up popular Kaws figures on the platform with people sharing posts about their mics and how they prefer to showcase the iconic toys.
Kaw figurines are easily recognizable by their prominent ‘X’ over the eyes, hands, etc., while some of the more popular items tend to spoof classic characters like Mickey Mouse, Elmo, and more.
