Gashapon…And where can I get one!

I am completely addicted to all things cute! It's really no secret, and the Japanese… know cute. I have stumbled upon something new to love, and obsess over. It's called a Gashapon Machine. Basically, it is a cooler version of our toy vending machines with better surprises inside, somewhere along the lines of KinderSuprises.  
Gashapon or Gachapon is made up of two sounds: "gacha" for the turning of a crank on a toy vending machine, and "pon" for the sound of the toy capsule dropping. (Wikipedia) 
In simpler terms, adults probably love them just as much or, in my case, even MORE than kids.

This Gashapon Machine can be found at welovemomiji.co.uk. It is actually at their shop but for online purposes they will drop in some coins and send you, your surprise. I know not as exciting as actually doing it yourself, but just look at what's inside!


Visit welovemomiji.co.uk to see more of the delightful surprises inside.
