2. The Bandai Capsule Toy Gashapon Machine Plus 1/2 Scale Size
As you likely know, Japan is well-known for its vending machines. No matter what you’re looking to buy, from food to Japanese toys for kids, you’re sure to be able to find a vending machine for it. So why not bring this cultural experience to your own child so that they can experience it for themselves? This is where toys like the Bandai Capsule Toy Gashapon Machine Plus 1/2 Scale Size come in!
One of the more unique Japanese toy gifts for kids, this miniature vending machine measures a tiny 31 x 14cm. But that’s not all: these Bandai vending machines can even be stacked one on top of the other so that your child can create a small wall of vending machines. This set features 12 capsules and four tokens, but don’t worry: it's known for accepting almost any coin or token just in case your child loses the original tokens. You just have to supply the miniatures that go in the capsules. So really, this is a truly unique Japanese toy gift for kids, because each time your kid uses it, they get a new present!

Much like how Mario is forced to navigate environments in the game in order to reach the end of the level and win, the Epoch New Super Mario Exciting Adventure Game is a small marble-based game where you can do the same with a small marble. Just have your child put the set together, decorate the background with the included stickers, and have a blast!
