This listing is for a vintage kimono made for a little girl. It features a playful design of chubby "ningyo" dolls surrounded by dozens of antique toys: kokeshi dolls, drums, fans, frogs, tops, and more. Orange background and light-colored printed imagery.

There are (and were) few opportunities for young girls to wear kimono after the war, when western clothes were more common. So most post-war kimono for kids were for summer festivals or for formal occasions, but this kimono would have been worn around the house or perhaps to school. It is still quite wearable - but please check the measurements against the child to confirm the fit before ordering. Kimono run small and remember that some of the length would be taken up at the waist when belted.

Vintage Japanese children's kimono make eye-catching displays in spaces too small to accomodate a full sized kimono or haori.
