• Can I choose which transport crate my Rijkswachter is made of? Or which piece of art my Rijkswachter has protected? Or maybe I can choose which code my Rijkswachter will get?
    No. It’s like a lottery, but even better: you’ll always win! The “price” is always Rijksmuseum-worthy. We find this really important, because now you will get to know known and unknown art of the Rijksmuseum.
  • I would like to have exactly the Rijkswachter as pictured! Is this possible?
    No. Every Rijkswachter has a different design. We make them by hand, and use the designs on the transport crates. Besides the different designs, the piece of art they protected varies.Is this too much uncertainty for you? We understand. You can visit one of our resellers and choose the Rijkswachter you like. Click here for an overview.
  • What are the sizes of the Rijkswachters?
    We have different sizes. Our smallest one is the Rijkswachter XS. He is 12 cm tall, 10,5 cm wide and 6 cm deep. The Rijkswachter Small is 17 cm tall and the Rijkswachter Medium with or without lamp or whiteBOT is 30 cm tall, 15 cm wide and 10 cm deep. You can move the arms of all the robots.
  • 30 cm? Too small. I want a bigger Rijkswachter!
    No problem! We have the Rijkswachter Large and XL. The Large is 70 cm tall, the XL 90 cm. Extra features are the lamps as eyes and a cabinet as belly. Ideal as nightstand, or liquor cabinet. 🙂
  • Where are the lights on the Rijkswachter Medium?
    On top of its head. Move your cursor to the big picture on top of this page and you’ll see the lamps light up. It’s a led light bulb. The Rijkswachter Medium with lamp has a red fabric electrical cord with switch and plug.
  • How can i discover which piece of art my Rijkswachter protected?
