It seems we are invaded. Dum-dum statues are everywhere, in Taipei but also in the provinces, small, big, even huge ones (2m tall).
For those who don’t know, here is a dum-dum.
We asked the Why question around but the usual answer is : “It looks cute!” or “We just like it…”. Was the museum movie popular in Taiwan? Or some companies just started producing them and it worked better than expected?
My girlfriend didn’t notice them until I pointed them out, but they are everywhere. Just wander around and pay attention.
