The boyfriend has been fanatically scouring our sunny island for a plushie of Domo Kun.

Domo Kun was born in 1998 by the Japanese Television Broadcast Network, NHK, as a mascot to promote their channel and programmes.  (Read more about it’s history here.)

I don’t really understand its appeal, but there must be something in the combination of a brown, fuzzy monster with no nose that only says “Domo” (which means ‘hello’ or ‘thanks’) that works!

The boyfriend seems compelled to laugh every time he sees this image (above).

Which is often, since its his computer wallpaper!!! And my response to him is simple: (-_-) [can you sense my enthusiasm?]

But just out of curiousity, I thought I’d try to find a plushie for him or at least narrow down the locations on our little red dot where this elusive brown monster might reside. While on this noble but unsuccessful quest, I did however come across this…

hello! domo-kun is adorable!
i’m not too sure how big a plushie you want,
but in case you’re still looking, you can find it at one of the pushcarts at compass point Basement 1
it’s about the size of a girl’s palm?
and they also hv a smaller handphone charm size plushie too.

Or you could go to this shop selling cute things at cineleisure. I know that it is located on the 2nd floor, near to pastamania. In fact, I spotted some Domo-kun merchandise there just last week! You could get him a plush version of Domo-kun for around ten dollars 🙂
