I heart - Kokeshi dolls

I seem to be following a theme of japanese-related toy goods in Wicked Wednesday. Oh well. I like them.

Kokeshi dolls are from northern Japan and are basic in form - a cylinder body and oversized head.

I'm not too fussed about traditional looking Kokeshi dolls, above

These ninja kokeshi dolls by Temple7e are so cool!

I love this cute tee by Kid Pirate

And Wunderkind let you make your very own! Check their shop for inspiration... sooo cute

The kokeshi you see up the top are made in Akita prefecture. If my memory serves me, the artist who made those has now passed away, however I think the son makes them now. I have some of those myself.
