Sarubobo

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.
