    My Neighbor Totoro is a favourite movie of mine and when I saw these figurines sold by Noritake I had to have them.
    Written and directed by the great Hayao Miyuzaki in 1988 for Studio Ghibli, the movie is a classic film in the animation world. If you don't know it I think you need to see it!
    Totoro is the main creature character and became the mascot for Studio Ghibli. The sticker Nibariki on this glass Totoro references the direction company of Miyuzaki and his wife.
    The cat bus, Nekobasu, despite it's almost evil grin, is a helpful and happy transporter for the children in the film.
    These are not packed away at my place, they remain on display for my daily dose of smile feels.

    I think these may have been made by Sasaki for Noritake.
    Totoro is app 10cm high, and Nekobasu app 10cm long.

      Jenni thanks!
      The movie is very sweet in that Japanese anime way.

      The film is feel good for me Peggy so having Totoro and Nekobasu here is lovely.
      I have to thank the stove top for the photos lol.
      Thanks for the comment and love.

      I'm a big fan of this movie! It's surreal, quirky, & touching. Kiki's Delivery Service is another fave of mine from Miyuzaki's oeuvre...
      The figurines are fantastic, perfectly capturing these iconic characters.
      I'd take a ride on the Catbus any day... :-)

      Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are on rotation here! I love Ponyo :)

      If only all buses were Catbus!

      Thanks Marin :)

      OH, it’s TOTORO!
      I have all the Gibli movies! And this is one of my favorites too! ( love Princess Mononoki and Howl’s Moving Castle too!) My Grandson made me aTotoro out of pearler beads and he sits on my nightstand watching over me at night, wish he would come and make my newly planted grasses grow bigger faster! Ha!
      Seriously though, He is a wonderful addition to your collection Karen!

      I had all my attention on TOTORO and didn’t see the CATBUS!
      Ghibli does ( did) wonderful work! The CATBUS is so cool, don’t you love his headlight eyes?
      My Son would love these, as I have told you more than once Japanese Anime is something he collects, both Manga & Movies!

      Isn't Studio Ghibli incredible Eileen! I love their films, singing the Ponyo song as I type.
      How could we not love this Tottoro and Nekobasu!!
      Thanks :)
