i know that you have been wondering all weekend who this little fellow is. the answer: he is nohohon and he is my friend. nohohon is a japanese toy from the tomy company and i discovered him in target (much like christopher who also became enchanted with him and started a photoblog about him and his adventures). nohohon, japanese for "without a care" and also referred to as hidamari no tami ("sunny people"), run on "solar power" and bob their heads in a relaxing, reassuring manner without need for batteries. i believe that anyone who lays their eyes on one of these guys will indeed be mesmerized. if the characters have already intrigued you, visit http://tinkerville.cutthatout.com/hidamari/ for a look at a wide assortment of them or http://www.akadot.com/article.php?a=45 to learn more about them. if you are not intrigued, you need only visit your local target and see them in action for it to happen to you too.
