I Finally Met Domo

Hanging from a college student’s book bag.  I asked if I could photograph the little creature with his mouth wide open. She told me it was Domo!


So I looked up Domo and learned about him and realize I am really behind the times in not having met him before. He’s been around awhile.

And I just met him now.  And a quote from Wikipedia     “Domo’s favorite food is nikujaga, a Japanese meat and potato stew, and he has a strong dislike for apples because of an unexplained mystery in his DNA”  You can check him out in stop animation features on Youtube, too.  

And the urban dictionary says  “Domo-kun is a small brown open-mouthed monster (hatched from an egg) who lives with a wise old rabbit underground and really, really likes TV. Domo-kun is the mascot of NHK’s BS2”

There are book bags and plush toys and I have never noticed him until a couple of weeks ago and that open mouth caught my eye.

  1. Well, that was quick, You’ve taken us from Pilgrim troll dolls to Domo in but a couple posts. Can’t wait to see where we’re going next. I sure hope you have a time machine. The Future beckons. 😉

  2. I wonder who dreamed up yet another money making fad. Hmmmmmm lots of TV, no apples….sounds very unhealthy!

  3. Domo was very hot a few years back… but I only know about him because I work in retail, and so am somewhat “required” to become/stay aware of the various crazes and phases. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
