King of Kawaii : Shinya Abe

In Japan, there is Kokeshi called “King of Kawaii” which is made by Shinya Abe.

 Kokeshi dolls and toys that show his originality while following the traditional style look cute and also funny.

 His Kokeshi dolls are very popular in Japan and you have to wait months after ordering to get them.

Let me introduce one of my collection of them. 

Their facial expression is very nice, isn't it? 

I just can’t believe the craftsman, who must be over 80, has chosen these pop colors.

This kid's feet are not  reaching the pedals. I imagine she's riding a bicycle for adults.
