A new toy figure – Dan Board

I discovered a comedy manga set called Yotsuba&!, which is all about two sisters, their family and friends. In episode 28, Yosuba’s young friend dresses up in cardboard boxes to “become” a robot; they play together for a day and then “he” goes home.

A Japanese company makes figures after the series, and the Dan Board robot figure has been especially popular. They came out with a special figure, making the boxes from amazon.co.jp (Japan’s Amazon.com); they are coming out with a full series of figures for a 7-11 marketing campaign in a month or so.

I found this figure on eBay – the robot eyes light up with a switch, which is a clever twist.
