Tokyo: Toys

On the back of a bus, on a lolly-wrapper or a paperbag, a fence, a sign or a book-cover - cute is EVERYWHERE in Tokyo and so are toys. Here's just a few snaps. Enjoy.

This is a photo of the Re-Ment display at LOFT - a department store with a pretty big range. I don't know a lot about these tiny toys but the detail is amazing. They are sold in blind boxes, so you never quite know what you'll get but they release them in sets - tea-parties or clothing or little woodland creatures. All cute, all the time...oh and yes, I think about bought about 11 boxes....
