Info:

 

 

Danbo is made from cardboard (actually plastic). Azuma Kiyohiko, the writer of Yotsuba, created this character to appear once in the comic. He has unique expressions which has attracted many photographers in the world to make him as the object of their photos. Furthermore, Danbo can be posed easily according to the concept of their photos.

 

Danbo - cardboard box robot named Danbo and Mini Danbo from the series Yotsuba. Danbo, comes from Danboru, the Japanese word for corrugated cardboard.The newest internet celebrity and Flickr’s most used subject for Photography shots.

 

Danbo and his little brother, Danboru (Mini-Danbo, Danby) are a cute toy box made in Japan, Amazon.jp also known as Danboard.

 

Danbo was commissioned by Amazon Japan from Azuma Kiyohiko, the creator of the manga character Yotsuba-chan who lives with her adoptive work-at-home dad, and whose happy-go-lucky adventures are recounted in the popular serial, Yotsubato/Yotsuba.
