Akabeko Red Cows

Akabeko are a traditional toy from the Aizu region, and are made from papier-mâché on a bamboo or wooden frame. Their bobble heads wobble up and down with any movement, making people smile. The origins of Akabeko come from a large red cow that carried lumber all through the building of a large temple long ago. Akabeko are given as a charm so that children will grow up strong just like the cow, and as a talisman for good health and easy childbirth.
