5. Koibito Art Toy

It has become a very popular figurine and is famous for combing elements of American pop art and Japanese mysticism.

4. Japanese Pregnant Dolls

The Misemono’s used to contain all types of entertaining and educational attractions which is where the pregnant doll can be traced back to. They were used to teach midwives how to deliver babies and were also used for good old-fashion entertainment.

3. Sega Robot Cat
The Japanese sure love their robots and cats, and they were bound to put the two together sooner or later. The above toy is called ‘Yume-Neke Venus’ or ‘Dream Cat Venus’. It actually has touch sensors that make it respond like an actual cat based on your reactions. It can actually purr, move its legs when pet by the owner and sleep many hours, just like a real cat.

2. Japanese Shaving Baby
This has got to be one of the most bizarre toys ever made. This baby doll is actually covered in hair in various places including the armpits and the public region for some reason, and people who buy this toy have the unique privilege of actually shaving it before using it as a toy.
