"Collectable dolls expressing life's true values" -

lt all started with a friend that got me a magnet for a tiny cute kimono dressed character, back in 2009, honestly at the time I didn't really care to look up Kimmidoll :} Not until a few months ago my sister's brought me a cup with an adorable Japanese-like character, she was "Michiru":

Hello, my name is Michiru 'Wealth' My spirit cherishes and shares.  You find my spirit in the love of family, the gift of friendship, the sanctuary of home and the fulfilment of work. May you discover the great wealth of life.

Each piece from Kimmidoll character carries a meaning! Their story says :

"The traditional Japanese Kokeshi dolls are a perfect example of this simplistic Eastern beauty. Kokeshi dolls have been a Japanese cultural institution for over two centuries. Giving and receiving Kokeshi dolls dates back to the Edo period (1603-1867) in Japan. Kokeshi dolls were handcrafted by woodwork artisans of the time known as Kijiya, (which means woodworker in Japanese) to be given away as tokens of love and friendship. 

 Kimmidoll® is a family of contemporary doll characters, each lovingly designed and representing one of “Life’s True Values”. 

While they look individual, there is one philosophy that all the Kimmidolls share, and that is about celebrating important values in life’s journey such as kindness, happiness, joy and respect. "

Promoting values through characters is brilliant, for instance:

Ayame 'Gratitude'
Ami 'Love'
Hiroko 'Generosity'

Misaki 'Tranquility'

And many more!

Through a tiny paragraph defining each character, on simple everyday everywhere belonging (like a mug or a magnet!) a smile is drawn and a person a reminded with a virtue :} Kimmidoll(s) gives me more than an adorable sight and a cute character, it also gives me a reminder of a lovely virtue and a wish. They are available in Center point - Kuwait.
