Recently, a total of 100 life-sized Doraemon models with different gestures and facial expressions are displayed along the Madang Road of Shanghai Xintiandi, the city’s entertainment landmark. Each of the 1.2-meter-tall Doraemon is equipped with a different bizarre gadget.
The earless blue cat-like is Japan’s most lovable anime character. He is actually a robot which owns a magic pocket from which he takes out gadgets and devices to help his owner’s wishes come true. For example the Bamboo Dragonfly, is a bamboo propeller that can be attached to the head and help one fly anywhere. The display revives the nostalgia of a lot of Chinese post-1980 and even post-1990 generations.
