Derek’s review

This swinging Lucky cat fits in well with the Solar Powered dolls collection, Daruma doll and Sumo wrestler.
The finish is a bit rough, I can see a big gap on the right side of the cat figure, and the paintwork on the top of the cat head isn’t very clean.
I also find the swinging lucky cat I got had a less sensitive solar panel compared to the Daruma doll and Sumo wrestler, I need to carefully position the cat to get the arm waving.
However, for 100 yen, this wee cat makes a neat souvenir.
Hopefully, this will bring me luck too 🙂 I’m off to buy a lottery ticket!
