Momiji dolls are collectible little resin dolls that are gifted to individuals as a sign of friendship and love. Also known as friendship dolls, each doll has a little space in its base to hide a secret message for the gift recipient. Momiji dolls are a modern interpretation of the Japanese Kokeshi dolls
While I've seen the momiji x hello kitty dolls before, I had not seen the dolls on mugs. So adorable with a hint of Hello Kitty, I had to scoop them up when I saw them @ my local Sanrio store, on sale even!
Each doll has a name (L to R in first photo: Chihiro, Gigi, & Stella) with their own special interests, i.e., running, music, etc. At the bottom of each mug is Hello Kitty's face (what a nice treat to see when you reach the bottom of your mug) and a "Spread the Love" saying on each. These mugs are such a cute find! I'll just add them to my little collection of Hello Kitty mugs. =)
♥ Happy Hello Kitty! ♥
