Kapibara-san – カピバラさん

Kapibara-san is a character created by Banpresto. At the beginning you could only get a Kapibara-san from toy crane vending machines. But people wanted it so much that they started selling it everywhere, different sizes, different colors, T-shirts, books and all kinds of merchandising. It is interesting how they managed to create a phenomenon just from a boring and simple animal (A capybara). The point is that it is really “kawai” (cute), and Japanese love “kawai” stuff. I like it!

  2. Hey!! This is my firts post and I will try in english.

    I like very much this cute, and I would like to get one for my baby. How can I get one?

    I am from Spain …

    Thanks!

  3. Spent $10 on a crane game in Shibuya trying to get one, with more than one of my attempts misfiring due to a wonky control setup. Save yourself the aggravation and spend the 5000 Yen.

  4. They are numerous here in Brazil. They are lazy and not agressive. you can find them in urban parks.

  5. my girlfriend picked up one of the toys in Japan, but they were sold out of the books =(

    does anyone know how i could purchase one of the books online?

    thanks heaps

  6. Kapibara is so cute! 😀 Oh well, only those who appreciate its simplicity would think it’s cute. Those who think otherwise are missing out!

  7. Our cat just loves the mini kapibaras from the game machines. My kids have to visit the local game centre on a regular basis to keep her stocked up on them, since she is always losing them under the washing machine or wherever. We tried other similar tiny toys but it is kapibara or nothing.
