The Adventures of Danbo! :) (New July 24)
These little things are so darn cute. After ordering one on eBay which never showed up, second-try arrived today. I didn't realize their heads fall off so easily, but, OK... we'll be careful. There's something about all the photos of them that evoke the same sense of this little being venturing out into a big world.

Didn't expect a package so soon.
The original 2 minis investigated this very different addition to the family.

"What is it??"
"I dunno... I think mum said we were getting a mascot?"

"Umm.... hello...."

"Well... this is our house... and there's an outside too...."

He/she is very cute! I love how they look in photos! I think they will get along well together. So glad it has arrived !
Yay a Danbo! The tilted head is the cutest thing ever haha.
Absolutely lovely shots. What a fun addition for your littles to have adventures with. smile
Cute and nice photos! Danbos have a strange charm all their own, considering they are made up of boxes and don't have much of any facial expression.
You got so much expression from just a tilt of the head. Too cute! Congrats on the new addition to your little crew.
Thanks everyone smile
There's no decipherable return address, no mailing date, no postmark. There is a highlighted tracking number, and although the item has disappeared from my eBay history, some hunting through past Paypal transactions shows this to be the original Danbo I ordered on Sept. 25!! eBay refunded me at the 2-month mark. I thought about waiting a bit longer before ordering another, but hoping it might come before Christmas, I went ahead. Now, it looks like I'm going to have TWO of them slash (I'd have got a girly-coloured one if I intended to have 2...)
Oh well... stay tuned for further adventures; this little guy is very portable, and unlike the mini Pullips, his hair won't get mussed :Lol:

Oh wow so the first one arrived just now! Well I am glad there will be two of them smile
Aww I'm in love with Danbo!! I don't have any of them but...I hope one day could buy one! Welcome home Danbo ans many congratulations Alliecat!! ;D
Thanks smile I'm not really sure how I feel about having twins. I think I'd prefer they weren't identical. Maybe if/when #2 arrives, I'll offer him for adoption to a good home? I kind of feel like, for now, I'd like to explore the photographic/story potential with just one.
I have to find out what batteries he takes -- he didn't come with one and there's nothing to indicate the proper size.

Arriving at Christmas, Danbo has lots to discover. Just as well, because it's too cold outside and he'd be buried in the snow we just got.

A strange new world with shiny things...

A new acquaintance.

More shiny things.

There are the (very cute) mini Danbos too if you prefer similar but not identical companions wink Might yours take LR41 batteries?
Love your photos! Danbo is going to have plenty of adventures with the rest of your crew! Happy
My daughter has a Danbo which mostly sits with her other dolls. I think I may borrow Danbo for some pictures soon!
Amelia (Ddalgi) Chelsea (Bloody Red Hood) Willow (Dahlia Cinderella) Cassidy (Neo Noir) Poppy (Kaela)
Chrysalier, he is a mini. Yes, they might be LR41; I saw that in google results but it wouldn't take me to a page where it actually said that. I'll have to look a little more.
MapleLeaf, you should! I can see how people get hooked on photographing these little guys!

I took Danbo to the library this evening. It wasn't busy and no one came in so I goofed off for a bit... blush

First he checked out the Christmas decorations...

If you're made of boxes, you can probably safely eat last year's popcorn.

Then he went to check out the books.

I think he wants to travel?

Looking for a definition of his existence...?

[Image: 30812331224_1a1bbdbe7b_b.jpg]
We have a new student worker. This is who I suspect shelved these books in a rainbow. This is not how it works!, but thanks for this great photo.... I'll let someone else tell you to fix it LOL

And, he met one of the library's residents.

Thanks for looking. More adventures to come smile

The rainbow shelf xD love your adventures and captions!

I actually meant the 3cm minies haha. I didn't know there was an even bigger size! My sister's danbo uses the LR41 ones, the button kind for watches so I thought it might be the same. Then again not sure if it's a different model
I LOVE your photos of him!<3
Especially at the library!
It's crazy how he's the first one , and you're just now getting him D:
Your photos are always so wonderful. n.n
Also, what camera do you use? Your photos are always so crisp and clear and beautiful.
