The Daruma Doll is a Japanese traditional doll. Round and roly poly, it is weighted at the bottom, so no matter how you push it around, it bounces back to position. It's a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making it a wonderful gift of encouragement. Obviously we could not resist these red and blue, cute and optimistic Daruma prints from Japan.
Daruma dolls are usually made of paper mache and hand painted. But why is only one eye painted in here?
Well, make a wish or New Year resolution when you receive this Daruma doll. Paint in the other eye if you keep your resolution ... or when your wish comes true!
