Default Hina Matsuri

Am I imagining or is this thread, threadbare?

Let's see if anyone will look at this.
Some culture....
Hina Matsuri is Girls Day in Japan when girls are honored extensively. It's like Mother's day in the US except it's for girls - mother's too if you want, but it was orignally intended for young kids.

With the vary large Japanese immigrant population in Hawaii it is celebrated widely.

One of the most impressive gifts to any young girl is the Dolls day gift set. Now we all know about Barbie and Ken etc... and how much they run. Yes, American Girl in Chicago dedicated to dolls makes a mint.

Well Barbie, move over. Look at the Hina Matsuri set below and the price tag:



No, the decimal is in the correct place.
Aloha

Klaus,
The price tag is for the set, so when you break it down by doll it's not unreasonable - if you have $2,200 since they are sold only in sets.
Incidentally these weren't the most expensive or cheapest about mid-range.

Cheers.

Selvin- even for a set of 5 dolls. Quite expensive for me...
But money is a relative thing, isn't it!
