Ensen cruising with a bunch of Domos at Suncoast in Pearlridge Center.

The title of this blog post says it all. That’s the way Kelly described Domo, the mascot of Japan’s NHK television station, to me the first time before we knew exactly what he was all about. We’d first seen him at Hot Topic then Kelly bought me a Domo t-shirt from the Suncoast movie store at Pearlridge Center.

Since then, the Kam family has become big fans of the little monster. So yesterday when we stumbled upon a stuffed animal version of Domo, we had no choice but to buy one. Ensen left the store with the little one pictured above ($8). The bigger version was super cuddly as well and sells for $29.

Any other Domo fans out there? And where can we find more Domo stuff on Oahu?

    Shauna and hana…thank you for the suggestions. There’s no Target here in Hawaii (soon to come though), but we have a friend on the mainland now who is hooking us up. 🙂 I’ll also have to check out that website. Mahalo!

    Hi Trina…thanks for stopping by and so good to hear from you. Ensen will appreciate the kind words and his head will balloon up even more…he’s plenty of grandmas, grandpas, aunties, and uncles telling him the same thing…the kid thinks he rules the world. Okay, so maybe he does…everything is good here in Hawaii. Hope the same with you folks too. Take care!

    Aww, that’s a good descripton. 🙂 You can order them online: http://secure.giantrobot.com

    Just search for Domokun and they have a bunch of items.

    Hi! Do you have Target over there? I’m pretty sure that’s the same character I saw at Target on an end-cap in the Halloween section. I bought some gummy teeth to send as sort of a *joke* to my son serving in Iraq with the 2-25 SBCT out of Schofield Barracks. I thought about sending the guys those crazy wax lips or something like that, but the weather will probably still be too hot over in the Sandbox and figured the lips might melt! The gummy teeth are a good alternative I think–less likely to melt in the desert heat!!

    Oh Nathan, Ensen is the cutest little Asian baby I have ever seen. He’s just adorable. I check your blog every now and then so I can see pics of him. So cute.

    Hope everything is good with you and the family. Take care.
