|Hidamari No Tami (meaning "sunny people") & Hanauta No Tami (meaning
"humming people") are members of the "Nohohon Zoku" (meaning "Nonchalant
Family"). They are part of Tomy Japan's "healing" line (also known
as stress relievers), which also includes Mutsu
I absolutely love them. They're so soothing to watch. I have one in every room. It amazes me how fluid the movements are and how silently they operate. Spend 10 minutes watching one of these things and your stress will melt away :-)

More Hidamari & Hanauta...
These 3 were just released, so don't have them yet.
Sasayaki of Mori (forest)
Sasayaki of Umi (ocean)
(plus 2 other new colors not shown)
I don't have this one yet, either. It's from Christmas 2002.
Watch out for FAKES.
|Be aware, there are knock-off versions that are not made by Tomy. Out of the box, it's almost impossible to tell the knock-offs from the real thing--except for the "Fishing" one, because of the eyes. With the others, you just have to look carefully at the packaging. Authentic Tomy Hidamari will have the Tomy name and "Nohohon Zoku" logo on them. See photos below....|
Another way to tell, is by the color. Tomy never made a blue "Fishing" Hidamari, only orange and red.
