Mojibakeru toy figures start as Japanese kanji characters and are transformed into the animals each character represents. For instance, inu (犬), kanji for “dog,” goes from black-and-white character to Dalmatian, complete with movable tail. Mojibakeru is both learning tool and unique demonstration of the link between symbol and object. In total, 18 different kanji figures are available in various colors.
