Bandai has announced a brand new type of Sailor Moon toy product– a Polly Pocket style compact with tiny dolls inside. While this toy is adorable and looks to be high quality, the price ($50) and recommended age on it (15+) clearly dictate this this is a collectible. And I’ll speak for myself– if my five year old daughter saw this toy, there is absolutely no way that she could keep her little hands away from it.
Inside the compact, we have Usagi’s bedroom complete with iconic pink rabbit and moon bedspread. The background pasted to the inner top of the compact shows recognizable locations from Sailor Moon, Crown Game Center and OSA-P Jewelry.
Again, this is a beautiful toy and a really fun idea. I just personally think it’s a bummer that Bandai isn’t making consumer level children’s toys for Sailor Moon anymore. This is a kids’ toy in my mind, and definitely one that won’t appeal (price wise) to all collectors.
