Danbo Photo Gallery

Updated on December 23, 2012

Danbo the Cardboard Robot?

You've probably seen pictures of him... the adorable cardboard robot that seems to find himself into tons of pictures across the web. You may have also noticed that he usually has the Amazon logo across his head. That is because he is the Japanese Amazon mascot! This cute little robot is in commercials all across Japan advertising the online supergiant of stores.

Other people may also recognize him from the anime Yotsuba&!

The name "Danbo" comes from the Japanese word "danboru" which means corrugated cardboard, the type of cardboard shipping boxes are made out of.

I've created this lense to share as many of the awesome Danbo pictures I can find so you too can share my love for this adorable little guy.

Are You Ready for Danbo?!?

I've compiled a nice big collection of Danbo pictures for you and I'll be adding more all of the time, so be sure to check back once you find yourself loving Danbo as much as I do!

If you click the pictures you will be taken to their source where you can also find a larger version of it.

I also want to know which pictures you like the best, so I have left polls throughout the lense so you can vote for your favorites!

Bath Time Danbo

Danbo and his ducky are getting squeaky clean! I just hope be doesn't get too soggy while he's at it.

I love how he looks surprised like the photographer caught him off guard. Lucky he had that duck or poor little Danbo would be mighty embarrassed!

Hang on Tight Baby Danbo

Don't let go of the tiny Danbo!

I love how imaginative this image is. I'm not sure if the balloon is actually filled with helium or it is just cleverly posed by being held up by something off-screen, but either way this picture is really cool.

Most of my favorite Danbo pictures include his family. There is something so adorable about tons of Danbos in one place!

Danbo Pushing Truck

Poor Danbo... no matter how hard you push, that truck isn't going anywhere!

I'd love to find a pattern to make that truck. That is a really neat way to pose your Danbos! The grass in the background really helps you realize how tiny Danbo and the truck are.

Danbo Flies a Kite

Just because he's cardboard, doesn't mean he can't have fun! Danbo has found his way into a meadow on a windy day to fly his kite.

I love how the photographer managed to make it look like he really had his kite high in the air. I also like how the grass looks almost golden even though you can see the green blades of grass all around him.

Little Danbo sure looks like he is having a good time!

Hungry Danbo Finds Some Sushi

That is a lot of sushi for one little cardboard robot! Can he handle it?

I love the colors of the little sushi rolls and how you can see the sushi chef in the background. Danbo managed to get himself into a real sushi restaurant!

Now I need to figure out how they made the tiny sushi rolls...

Photographer Danbo

Now what could Danbo be taking pictures of? Perhaps the photographer taking Danbo's picture? Or maybe even smaller Danbos!

The photographer managed to find some very tiny flowers that work great with the size of Danbo. The tiny camera is adorable as well.

I really like the ideas of Danbos taking pictures of Danbos taking pictures of Danbos.

Danbo Befriends Snail

Snails may be slugs with hats, but they still make a great friend for Danbo. Just make sure you don't get covered in slime little guy!

Danbo posing with live creatures is something I don't see very often outside of cats and dogs and this is really cool! The snail is almost reaching out to Danbo and isn't afraid of him at all! Adorable.

Adorable Danbo Family

This Danbo family is 100% adorable! I love how little baby Danbo is holding mommy and daddy Danbo's hands.

Pictures with more than one Danbo are always too adorable for words to me.

When I look at this picture it almost seems like baby Danbo is looking in awe at the world around him while his parents protect him on their stroll down the street.

Danbo Does His Homework

Just because you are made of cardboard, doesn't mean you don't still need an education!

Danbo carefully looks over his work, making sure he didn't miss any steps. When you are a tiny robot, it is more than a little pain when you need to erase the work you just did!

I love how quizzical this Danbo looks, as if he is really concentrating on the work at hand.

Danbo and the Rainbow Slinky

It is like being trapped in a tunnel of colors!

The rainbow slinky was really a great choice here. The picture is so colorful and fun!

This Danbo must have been an especially small one to fit inside of the slinky. When it comes to Danbo though, it seems that the smaller they are, the cuter they are!

Danbo is Ready For His Close-Up!

Isn't Danbo's face the cutest? I love this close-up.

With the dark background I'm not exactly sure what he is doing. Perhaps watching a movie? Maybe he is playing hide-and-seek? Who knows! Either way, this picture is adorable!

Check Back Often!

Well, that is all of the Danbo now, but I'll be adding more all the time so if you enjoyed this pictures, be sure to check back often! I plan to plan at least 2-3 new Danbo pictures each week so there will always be plenty of new pictures for you to check out.

Your comments are always appreciated! Let me know what you think. Which pictures were your favorite? Do you want to see more Danbo pictures? What kind of pictures would you take if you had your very own Danbo?

      I think my 6 yr old might enjoy trying to make one, but he'll probably make his own robot completely different!! Cute lens! :)

      DANBO?? This is completely new to me! That's what makes this lens so great - I actually learned something today. Keep up the good work.
