Can I just like…speaking of going to Japan I’ve been looking at Licca and Calico Critters a lot more. Just checking them out because it’s fun. AND THE LEVEL OF DETAIL ON THESE LIKE. It’s insane. Plus the little accessory packs!!!! Is it just me or does Japan make way more awesome accessory packs for their toy lines? Like, just look at these:
Koeda-chan is a Takara Tomy-made line of figurines for young kidlets.
Some were released for the English-speaking market as “Treena and Her Forest Friends” but I am not sure how wide the release was.
Anyway, they have done crossovers with licenced characters as a “Koeda MEETS” line. Some of them as obvious choices, some a little less.
