Japanese Paper Balloons (Kamifusen)
A traditional Japanese children’s toy, kamifusen (paper balloons) has been bringing happiness and warmth to the lives of little ones since the 19th century.
Back in those days, kids found simple joy in keeping the balloons afloat by hitting them with their hand. While toys have advanced vastly since then, the rustic charm of the colourful wax paper instrument never faded.
Today, Japanese paper balloons are often found at children’s parties as decoration or party favour bags, or as a hanging mobile for their bedrooms.
Our Kamifusen collection comes from Isono, the company who has been producing the delicate paper balloons for over 90 years, preserving this beautiful heritage with a personal touch.
Note: The balloons do not come with strings attached, so you will need to add strings if you would like to hang them.
