Kim Kardashian Thanks Kanye West’s Dropout Bear Co-Designer for Donating Items to North West and Her Other Children

Kim Kardashian is using her platform to validate the kind gesture.

The reality star, 43, shared a message of gratitude on her Instagram Story on Friday, thanking Kanye West designer Bobby Naugle Dropping out of college bear, commonly referred to as just Dropout Bear. (Sam Hansen was the other co-designer, per Complex.)

With a photo of her with Naugle, The Kardashians star revealed the designer approached her last year “because he wanted to gift North some of the original merchandise he helped produce” and “wasn’t asking for anything in return”.

We’ve stayed in touch since then, Kardashian continued. “And after several collectors and auction houses approached him with other collectibles he owned from 2003 to 2005, which included first-hand sketches and Kanye’s original pink RL polo shirt, Bobby felt [would] it was most appropriate to give them to our children, again, asking nothing in return.”

Bobby Naugle donated items including “Kanye’s original personal pink RL polo” to Kim Kardashian’s children.

“I would like to publicly thank Bobby for his kindness and generosity (very rare in this industry), when instead he could have easily made a lot of money selling these items,” the SKIMS founder concluded.

In the slides that followed, Kardashian included glimpses of some of the “collectibles,” including the pastel Ralph Lauren polo shirt she previously mentioned, and a black graphic tee, which she displayed alongside a picture of West, 46, wearing it.

Kardashian shares four children with West, North, 10, Saint, 8, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4, and their eldest has consistently been a vocal fan of his father’s music — particularly his 2004 debut album.

During a trip to Japan with her mom in August, North paid tribute to her rapper dad by channeling his Dropping out of college-era style.

On TikTok, the 10-year-old danced in Tokyo as he played along with friends to an up-tempo version of Estelle’s “American Boy,” which features West’s lyrics, while wearing one of his most recognizable ‘fits’.

North wore a blue and orange Ralph Lauren striped polo shirt with a pop of color and accessorized with a long chain — a combination West wore during a 2004 appearance. Total request live.

Two months later, North took things up a notch for Halloween, channeling not West, but his iconic bear character. (Dropout Bear made regular appearances throughout West’s early career and would occasionally accompany him to public events, including his 2004 TRL look.)

Specifically, North rocked the very outfit the character wears on the rapper’s 2007 album cover. Graduation.

Once again, North documented the appearance with a TikTok set to a sped-up version of “American Boy.” In the clip, she starts close to the camera, then moves away and puts on a bear head to show off the full ensemble.

The rapper’s eldest daughter also danced with the other two Graduation songs, including “I Wonder” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
