Cool Amazon Robot Party
A Danboard is a "robot" that showed up in volume 5 (I think - I'm only up to 3) of the Yotsubato! manga. It isn't really a robot, it is actually one of the characters from the manga dressed up as a robot made from carboard boxes. The main character, Yotsuba, thinks it is a real robot and hilarity ensues.
Thanks to Matt, the previous occupant of my desk, I've got a huge Danboard robot peeking out over the cube wall. I really like it. I also bought the normal sized version, and then the mini version when it came out in December of 2008. I was really surprised; those guys were the top sellers for weeks at Amazon.co.jp's hobby store
, and now they aren't available new any more. The prices shot up quite a bit and now they are hard to get.
I'm glad I've got my two cute robots though.

Yay! Danbo is still there! :D
I really want a mini danbo, though! I got the regular size one while I was there, but I just missed the mini one :(
