I'm a Toys R Us kid!
Well, not quite... but I'm definitely a gashapon freak! To those who are less informed, gashapon are these little capsule toys that you buy from vending machines in Asia. While a large majority are anime based, I did manage to find a few game ones. They ran on average 50NT (sometimes I found ones that were only 30NT), which is approximately $1.60USD each.
Mini Nintendo handhelds (plus link cable, e-Reader, and some games); there are also some classic Famicom cartridge tins that contain mini figures - one of them is Link, and I'm not quite sure what the other is from
There is a small Mario keychain (that's now on my purse), and two Warioware cell phone accessories; the Wario one is attached to my phone (see? Pink Razr!) and Mario Kart DS cars. They're those types that if you pull them back, they'll race forward - too much fun!!
I apologize for the fuzziness - it wasn't focusing correctly and I had to snap the pics real quick since I'm at work. These are my three Animal Crossing ones (I got a whole bunch, but a lot of them ended up being doubles - don't ask for the doubles either, because I'm already giving them to someone whom I know would appreciate them). You can see I have the Boy, Rover, and the dog who styles hair (I can't remember her name... doh!)
Lastly, I just have a few assorted Anime gashapon. Naruto, of course, and one of the girls from Neon Genesis Evangelion (ugh, been a while... can't remember her name either). And of course, Tina from DOA.
Well.. that was the last of the Gashapon - but not the last item that I bought. The very last thing I got on my trip to Asia was in Japan during my layover:
It's a Mario Kart Double Dash RC Car. Yeah, that's right. You can swap Mario and Luigi too, and it comes with a little remote which controls the car forwards and backwards.
Like I said... I don't wanna grow up. :P
