Believe it or not, but this Kappa is a candy toy! These were released a few years back by Tomy, in their Daiei Tokusatsu (Motion Picture) Series. Kappa is based on the character from the Great Yokai War movie, released in 1968. This was included in the second Daei Tokusatsu candy toy series, which also included 3 different versions of Daimajin, and Nuppeppo (also from the Great Yokai War). The figures stand about three inches tall, and have a very vintage feel, inspired by the original Marusan soft vinyl figures.
