Kokeshi dolls are traditional Japanese Wooden dolls that are often hand carved and painted. These dolls originated in the 1600s and were sold as souvenirs to traveling tourists who visited the Japanese Hotsprings.
Fastforward 400 years later, and meet the Momijii Doll. These Kokeshi inspired figurines have taken the Kokeshi theme and turned it into a profitable online business by creating dozens of super rare limited edition dolls at affordable prices.
What’s more, these dolls make great gifts, because you can turn them upside down and remove a note, which you can personalize. This makes them great ideas for holidays, weddings, anniversaries, or graduations. Any special occasion, there’s a doll to match that.
Furthermore, each edition of dolls is very unique; from a pen quill shaped doll for writers to a popcorn shaped doll for movie lovers (or those who work in movies/theaters), to an airline stewardess, or a chef, you can find a Momijii that suits your personality, or that of a close friend. Most are limited to just 150 dolls worldwide, and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. This makes it a collector’s dream to collect their favorite Momijii dolls.
