Art Toy of the Week – Nekomata

I have been collecting designer toys since 2004 and this is my weekly column.  I also have other interests (I am for example the Curator of the Breyer Horses and Warne’s Observer’s Pocket Books and generally am known to add anything cute to my collection).


This week’s art toy is the adorable Nekomata by Genkosha, and produced by Merry Go Round. I love this little sofubi cat! It’s so nicely detailed including both the solid vinyl of the body and translucent vinyl at the back of the figure. Genkosha creates some fantastic animal pieces, I really love them!

Yellow Dragon-Li Nekomata

Nekomata has only been released in two colourways so far, the ginger tabby and black and white, and sits 4” tall.
