We reviewed the Japanese Solar Desktop Toy Nohohon this January. The Nohohon, or as we called it in the review Nihohon (Fancylogic) is actually part of a whole set of different kinds of Hidamari no Tami's.
The standard Hidamari no Tami (Japanese for sunny people) just nod with their head powered by a solar panel. It is really relaxing to watch. There is another series that makes relaxing sounds. Akadot has a full background story on all the different Hohohon Zoku Families.
