first stop in tokyo-ADVENTURES IN KIDDYLAND

If there is one thing my mom and I love more than shoes, it would be toys.
Tokyo's famous 'Kiddy Land' store was the first stop we made on our first day in Tokyo.



+








We were having a great time until mom saw Pleo.
It was love at first sight...and sadly it was a doomed love, because unfortunately his size and price tag meant that Pleo couldn't come back to Texas with us.


Mom shared a tearful goodbye with Pleo before we left in search of lunch.

Kiddy Land was amazing, Pleo or not!! It wasn't our first trip to Kiddy Land and it won't be our last...gotta go back and get more Totoro toys.

We have a Japanese toy store at our mall here and I always ask for a job when I go there, I could spend a day in a store like that! Looks like you're having a fantastic time in Japan. :)

Photo of Michelle

I am currently living in Tokyo (only 2 more weeks to go) and I will return home with heeps and heeps of toys from kiddyland!!! I love it there
Oh and if you like toys you should go to Nakano as they have a mall there with 60 toystores :D

Oh my gosh, Capybara-san (the big brown plush you're holding)! Those are so adorable. And I spy some dolls dressed up like characters in a manga I love. All that pink in the first photo is fantastic. I am going to love your Japan posts so, so much!

Are you going to see Ponyo?? If you liked Totoro, you'll definitely like Ponyo.
I think you would love the Ghibli Museum!
Though it's unfair that the Cat Bus is only for small children...
HAVE A REALLY GOOD TIME!

Photo of Christine

Thanks for posting while you're in Japan!!

Photo of chicfaced

that photo of your mom's hand on Pleo's box made me lol - such longing. looks like you're having a great time!

Photo of Sunshine Fox

you and your mom can get a Pleo here in the states... amazon.com has a great selection of vendors that sell them and ebay has them as well and from what I remember when I was in Japan a few months ago, for whatever strange reason, Pleo costs more in Japan that it does in the US.

We have one and love the little guy...its like a tamogochi but on a whole different level.

Photo of Rafelina

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU MOTHER DIDN'T BUY IT (PLEO DINO-ROBOT) IF ITS COST IS ONLY $1,500 uds. I BET SHE HAD PAY NEAR THAT MUCH OR ALMOST FOR A PAIR OF SHOES. STILL I DONT THINK SO. BUT GREAT PICS JANE. HAVE FUN IN TOKYO.

Photo of juliet
