Check out these lovable Totoro toys from the classic anime movie My Neighbor Totoro. They're cute and cuddly and want to be your quirky friends. Totoro is the big cuddly thing from My Neighbor Totoro, a Hayao Miyazaki animation. My Neighbor Totoro, is a 1988 Japanese anime film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli. The film follows the two young daughters of a professor and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan. The movie won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize in 1988. The movie was originally released in the U.S. in VHS format with the title, My Friend Totoro.
Totoro is a spirit of the forest. Totoro is not a traditional Japanese character, he came completely from Miyazaki's imagination. However, he is obviously a mixture of several animals: tanukis (ie. the raccoon dog, a wild dog similar to raccoons), cats (the pointed ears and the facial expressions), and owls (the chevron markings on their chests and the "ooo"-ing sound they make with their ocarinas at night). Children and Totoro have a special relationship. This warm, round creature of the woods can be seen only by children, with their pure and innocent hearts. Totoro speaks no human language but communicates fluently with children. Cat Bus takes Totoro and his friends wherever they want to go. Makes a great gift for totoro fans.

Jaaks Pacific recently released a second edition of their EyeClops Night Vision Binocular. With this new edition, they have redesigned the unit to take up less vertical space and upped the 'sci-fi' factor as well. The EyeClops 2.0 binoculars allow the wearer to see out of both eyes, whereas the original EyeClops Night Vision Goggles only allowed the user to see out of one eye.
See up to 50 feet in complete darkness with REAL night vision technology! Now with all new dual eye display so you wont miss a thing! And the new handheld design won’t slow you down when you’re on the move. Invisible, infrared illumination means you can see them, but they cant see you. Maximum surveillance mode allows you to embark on long range reckon and scouting mission, while the proximity stealth mode helps you gear up for missions that require a closer look, without being seen. The V2 has a form fitting performance visor, action detailing, focal adjustment and new dual eye display. Use both eyes with the handheld binocular design.
This will make a great holiday gift. These night vision goggles let kids and adults see in total darkness and they are very cool. If you are already gearing up for your holiday shopping and have a kid 8+ on your shopping list, the Eye Clops 2.0 Night Vision Binoculars may be perfect.
