These wee teeny sofubi figures from Junko Mizuno are great for a plethora of reasons. For one, they allowed me to use the word "plethora" which is one of my all time favorites. Secondly, they're like little bits of one of her paintings come to life, ready to run amok on unsuspecting viewers. But thirdly, and maybe most importantly, they have the best names. Just look at the picture and tell me they don't each have the most perfect names. Each one is completely descriptive of its owner, allowing zero ambiguity. Unlike the name Ted. There's a lot of secrets hiding behind the name Ted.
