Kidstuff started as a side project band playing punk and pop punk music for Mong and Leo back in 2001. One early morning of May 2001 Mong got insecured texting with one of our friends and all of a sudden something came out from his mouth out of nowhere, saying "Ahhhhhh their full of Kidstuff!!!". It caught my attention and Leo told him that it could be a great name for our side project band we're planning and he agreed. Mong and Leo didn't really put any seriousness with Kidstuff until their main band Cons Piracy disbanded on December 2002. On January 2003 Mong and Leo started recruiting members for the new band their building. When they were thinking of a name for the new band Leo remember about Kidstuff and told Mong and he agreed. Wilby a close friend from a defunct band joined the group as session guitarist and soon Rex a their former bandmate from Cons Piracy joined them to play keyboards. Late January that year Mong and Leo started writting songs for the new band with hard rock genre but on eve of march 2003 Leo wrote something unsual that he never wrote anything like it since high school and that usual thing is "STARDASH". An alternative pop rock song originally written for his GF but when the band heard it, they decided to use it as their original material for radio airplay and promotions. Stardash was released on late April 2003 on local radio stations in Zamboanga City and fav local DJ's for its cachy melody and lyrics. On may 2003 Stardash became a huge success gaining a lot of airplay by request from the fans of those local radio stations. On July 2003 Kidstuff made their way to number 9 with their cover version of Madona's "Crazy For You" and Stardash land on the Number 1 spot on R.X. Local Bands Count Down. August 2003 Jason joined Kidstuff as a permanent drummer and percussionist. Kidstuff played a couple of gigs that year and included R.X. Concert Serires, R.X. Band Breakout, R.X. On Stage, Tetuan Fonda, Debut and Parties. Kidstuff also release a Christmas Song on December 2003 entitled "The Simple Christmas". Early 2004 Kidstuff entered the studio again to record new songs and released on February 2004 they released the new single "Everything" but had to retract the CD from the radio station due to technical problem with the recording that they did not notice until it was air played. On June 2004 Kidstuff stopped giging due to Leo's Studies. On May 2006 Leo graduated with a degree in Computer Science at AMACU and immediately regrouped with Kidstuff to record new songs he has written since they halt the Kidstuff Project. But on July 2006 Mong has to leave the band for a career in the AFP as a Air Force Service Man. He was replaced by Arnold and another new member jerome joined the group for bass. On November 2006 Jason and Jerome were removed due confidential reasons. Jeffrey, Leo's College Classmate and Thesis partner joined Kidstuff for the Drummer Slot and brought with him Jerome his bandmate for the Lead Guitar slot. Arnold was moved to Bass since he was more of a bassist than a guitarist. Kidstuff played a couple of gigs in 2006 till early 2007 which includes gigs under Jam Track's Gangsta Metal Production and Sta. Maria Fiesta Show. January 2007 Rex left Kidstuff to join Badgrass a reggae band in Zamboanga. On May 2007 Jeffrey left Kidstuff for a career in Pampanga and Kidstuff were on a halt again till February 2008. Currently Kidstuff is now in studio again work for a new single with no set due date.
