Gashapon are cute toy vending machines that are popular in Japan. Gashapon is a made up of two sounds: “gasha” for the turning of a crank on a toy vending machine, and “pon” for the sound of the toy capsule dropping into drop off box. Gashapon is a trademark word by Bandai while Tomy uses the word Gacha.
I love cute little toys. Obviously, Una loves it too. She’s screaming and running around when we saw this in Robinson’s Place Ermita. I don’t usually buy these capsule toys even if I wanted to hoard them all because there is a high probability of not getting the item that you want. But I found this cute little cellphone charms from Sanrio and I couldn’t resist. I am so glad that I received Kuromi because I do not like Hello Kitty.
Read Kuromi’s bio below, we have so many things in common.
If you’ll notice, I’ve been referring to myself because Una didn’t like Kuromi. She wanted me to get the Super Mario toys, but mommy has other ideas. Hahaha!
By the way, this Gacha wall is found in Toy R Us in Robinson’s Place Ermita.
