There are many ways you can give your home a sense of personality, but if you want to add some fun into your home decor, then some Totoro home decor is exactly what you need.
Totoro is the adorable character from the 1988 Japanese fantasy film My Neighbor Totoro, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The story is about two sisters, Satsuki and Mei, who move to the country with their professor father, and it focuses on their magical interactions with the friendly wood sprites (Totoro and his companions). There’s a lot to love about this film, and the popular anime has broken into the mainstream, which is probably why everyone wants to get their hands on some Totoro merchandise.
And really, there’s so much to choose from. Just check out this picture from community page Everything Hayao Miyazaki, which proves you can buy everything from a Totoro teacup and saucer to cute salt shakers.
When it comes to Totoro products, the merchandisers have really thought of it all, and we’ve found some of the cutest home ware pieces the Internet has to offer.
