10 years ago when I lived in Japan, I bought a cute little purse with a naughty cat character silkscreened on it. I had no idea who he was. Today I was delighted when I stumbled on a plush doll of the character and discovered that he is Dayan, of Wachifield!
Wachifield is a wonderland created by author and illustrator Akiko Ikeda. In her stories of Wachifield she has created from her imagination "a world similar to the world we live in but with different inhabitants such as personified animals and nature, witches and fairies." Visit her website for more information..
I love the plush line that has been created from her characters. These hand puppets of Dayan and his Bunny Rabbit Pal Marcy are avaible at the Sekenguchi Fan Direct Shop
