These Kokeshi dolls are a cross-cultural concoction of traditional Japanese dolls and ‘Star Wars’ lore. Created and hand-painted by Etsy user Temple7e, you’ll spot a handful of familiar faces—Han Solo, Princess Leia and Boba Fett—among the samurai warriors, ninjas and Shaolin monks.

Temple7e also makes personalized Kokeshi dolls by request—what a perfect gift for a Japanese pop culture fan! Stats for Cross-Cultural Toys Trending: Older & Chilly
