People in Kanazawa have been familiar with traditional local toys as bringers of good luck. Kanazawa's traditional toys are characterized by simplicity but refined beauty. These toys include Kaga dolls, such as a lion head and traditional Kaga Tobi firefighter doing acrobatic performance, hachiman okiagari koboshi (tumbler doll), and komekui nezumi (rice eating mouse).
