Stitch riding Shisa limited statuette
Found this cute item on a Japanese auction board. (Do I spend too much time searching for "スティッチ" on Japanese auction boards? Er...)
From what I can tell on running it through two different translation programs, it's to commemorate the Stitch! TV show, was limited, and wasn't originally available for sale (so it was some kind of premium or giveaway). But, that's about it. It's sure cute!
Oh, and just to repeat, a shisa is what they call the little lion doggie guardians in Okinawa, where Stitch! is set.
(Oh, and, as usual, if anyone who has greater Japanese skills than moi would like to chime in - ie, just about everyone - please feel free.)
