Wind Up Figures by Maywa Denki

Knowckman figures make "absurd musical movements" that are sure to make you smile. The figures were designed by the Japanese air band Maywa Denki. Each figure costs roughly $15 and has a different design and motion. Collect all five: knockman, coron, kerotama, chacha and pororon.

Implications - If you need a bit of silly amusement in the middle of your work day, or if you want to keep your kids smiling and entertained, I could see these quirky figurines being pretty effective. I will be very interested to see if Maywa Denki releases more variations of these offbeat toys in the future. Who knows, maybe an entire orchestra is in the cards!
