Kamen Riders Are Now Available as Kawaii Kokeshi Dolls

And as Zippo lighters, if that's more your speed


As the time of the Heisei Riders ends, it's time to look back on some of our favorites—and these kokeshi dolls are one of the cutest ways we've seen.


The new wooden dolls are carefully carved and painted with attention to detail. Some, including incumber Kamen Rider Zi-O, also feature felt pieces for helmet details. Five different designs are currently available:



Each kokeshi doll is 4,400 yen excluding tax.


If you're looking for something a little more practical, there's also a set of Heisei Rider Zippo lighters. The set features 20 lighters, plus a "20 Kamen Rider Kicks" insert in the display case. The limited-edition box sells for 160,000 yen before tax.



Both the kokeshi and the lighter set are available for pre-order now.
