Did you know? A Daruma Doll always returns to its upright position when knocked over!
This is known as: okiagari (起き上がり). “Oki” means get up and “agari” means arise. A Daruma Doll symbolises the ability to overcome and recover from hardships on the mission to reaching your goals.
The Daruma Doll has a strong connection to the phrase “Nanakorobi”, which means “Seven times down, eight times up”. It means to get up every time you fall down, a pretty motivating message. Especially on Monday mornings...
The auspicious doll is round and does not have any legs or arms, but the Bigger Micro Anatomic (Daruma Red) keeps its humanoid form intact - hands, legs, skeleton, and guts of course. Like the original Daruma Doll, the collectible BMA Daruma Red shares its crane shaped eyebrows, turtle shell cheeks, gold details, and of course, the auspicious red colour.
The Kanji character written on its back is "fuku", which means good fortune. It's no wonder why the Daruma figure is so popular. Who doesn't like some good fortune to be invited into their house? Just a little shout-out here too, to our beloved Maruma, inspired by the same concept of the Daruma figure, but with a minimal and Singaporean take.
This brand new colorway for the ever-popular Bigger Micro Anatomic is the first oriental-styled one, and we're lovin' it! Making its debut this weekend at Beijing Toy Show 2018 (7 - 9 September), a limited number of stocks have been made available only for the event.
