Its never enough

More chicken goodness! If you can believe it, this chicken toy set is about 1 inch in height. I found these at the Japanese grocery store, from one of those mystery toy boxes:

There are 1o sets you can get, but you dont know which one is inside the box. I've been wanting this chicken set (#7) for a while now, and I finally got it the other week! I was jumping up and down like a child, but I was so excited!

I need these things as an illustrator for inspiration, right? Right?

You absolutely need these. I get excited when I get the little ceramic figures out of the box of tea bags and they aren't nearly as cool as these.

Bearuh: haha, I am glad to hear someone REALLY shares my enthusiasm for these! If you are near a Japanese grocery store you might be able to find them. The toy comes with a piece of gum too. Woohoo!

DANG!!! I dont have one of those stores. :( I am going to go cry now :( not really but I AM pretty disapointed in my town right now!!

Bearuh said...

Hey done crying now ;) How much does one of those cost? I looked on ebay and it is CRAZY how much they are.. like 20 bucks! Maybe you could sell them on ebay too!!

I first saw these at Toy Tokyo here in NY, but they have a website!!:

They don't seem to have the same ones I have online but they do have the other cute Re-ment mini toy packs. If you do get them, take a pic and let me know what you got!!!

I ended up getting them at a Japanese grocery store for about $4. But I think they come at different price points...
