The question isn’t really “Do I really need more gachapon capsule toys?” but “How did I ever communicate without them?”
This series may be sold out by the time you’re next in Tokyo, but there will be plenty more to take its place! If you’d like to discover the latest, greatest, gachagacha, a guide to the best gachapon hunting spots in Tokyo is on my travel blog, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had. Happy hunting!

Where can I purchase some of these adorable cat toys?
I found these at the gachapon machines at Nakano Broadway, but they may be sold out by now ( ; _ ; ) You might be able to find them on eBay or at one of those little hole-in-the-wall shops in Akihabara where they sell onesie-twosie gachagacha toys from limited editions that are gone from the machines. Good luck, and I hope you find them (or something equally great!)
