Who is Domo Kun?

Domo Kun is a monster who lives in a cave. He is friends with Mr Usajii (a rabbit), Shinobu-san and Morio-kun (two bats) and Tani-chan (a bear?). The name Japanese Domo Kun roughly translates as "Mr. Thank you".

Domo Kun started off as a mascot for the Japanese TV station NHK, but now he seems to have a life of his own. He has now become an Internet meme and a cultural icon. Domo Kun merchandise makes a great buy for kids, especially teenagers. Anyone older will also love to receive a Domo Kun gift, especially anyone who uses the Internet a lot and is likely to be aware of what an important cultural icon he is.

I love Japanese popular culture. One of my favorite Japanese cultural icons is Domo Kun.

This loveable furry brown monster is very popular with people of all ages, and Domo Kun merchandise makes a great unusual gift.

There are all kinds of cool Domo Kun merchandise you can buy online. Here are some of my favorite items...

The most popular Domo Kun merchandise is the Domo Kun plushie soft toy. This loveable Japanese monster is available in a huge range of sizes. Small plushies are available as very cute keyrings. Amazon also a a big range of Domo Kuns in larger sizes - you can buy a giant Domo Kun plushie if you have room for it!

I love my Domo Kun plushies and they are the envy of everyone who works in the same office as me!

The Japanese love limited edition merchandise so there's often some exclusive Domo Kun plushies that are only available at certain times of the year. Santa Domo Kun plushies are popular around Christmas time. Halloween is popular in Japan, so Halloween Domo Kun plushies often make an appearance in the Autumn.
