On our trip to Japan we went to Takayama and there were lots of funny baby mascots around. There were even stone sculpture of the mascot and Hello Kitty versions too! I found out that the mascot is a Sarubobo and that they are mascots for good luck. As Gitanjali collects dolls and mascots from around the world I brought her a mini Sarabobo for good luck and her collection.
