About the work

A blue-eyed Charmy-chan Eiichi Shibusawa version is wearing a silk hat. Eiichi Shibusawa was in peace diplomacy with the United States using dolls and continued to give children dreams. It collaborates with Charmy, a popular doll of Kodama Sangyo TOY that has been in business for more than 90 years. Charmy-chan is a soft vinyl doll that mimics an adorable baby that gained popularity in the 1960s. This cute doll gradually disappeared with the toy shop in the town with the flow of the times. Many years have passed, and Charmy has crossed the sea and is now very popular in England and other European countries. It is now also popular in Japan in the form of reverse imports. It is handmade one by one. Kodama Sangyo Toy Co., Ltd., & Maelchens Noriya Takeyama)
