my widdle angels

So a couple months ago, that Amy casually mentioned something about some little cupid dolls from KidRobot. It must have gotten filed away in my brain, because I noticed boxes of them in Japan and picked up a few. They come in different series and in blind boxes (i.e., there are numerous designs in a series, but you can’t tell which design you are getting until you open the box). I gave one of the Christmas ones to Amy and kept one. Okay, that’s not really true. After I opened my Christmas one, I decided I needed to keep one of the fruit head series that I bought. So I opened that box and then decided I needed to keep the second fruit head one I got.

And now I am officially obsessed with these darn little Sonny Angel cupids! I want to collect all the fruit heads, but of course they are scarce here in the US. At least I got Amy back for starting me on this kick–I rekindled her fixation on the cupid heads, so now she is loony over them, too!

    Sometimes I go by this store (SF one) and last time there was a line going out the store! There must have been a new delivery of things. If you ever come to SF I’d be happy to show you this place and Haight St and other fun things here (Japan town!, fabric :) Very cute heads!

    They’re weirdly naked, considering the relatively elaborate headgear. And a little more anatomically correct than cupid dolls need to be, in my opinion.
    But I love the fruit heads despite the nakedness.

    Interesting that cupey dolls are making a comeback after so many decades, but then they are cute. These look like a cross between cupey dolls and Teletubbies. Ha!

    Those are so cute!!!! I started collecting a few toys when I bought a few of those blind boxes in Japan 3 years ago. I was hooked after opening my first one!
