Kokeshi (こけし, kokeshi?), are Japanese dolls, originally from northern Japan.  They are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. The body has a floral design painted in red, black, and sometimes yellow. One characteristic of kokeshi dolls is their lack of arms or legs. The origin and naming of kokeshi is unclear, with historical ateji kanji spellings including 小芥子, 木牌子, 木形子, 木芥子, 木削子, etc. The hiragana spelling こけし was agreed on at the All-Japan Kokeshi Exhibition (全国こけし大会) in Naruko Onsen, Japan in August 1939.The design of the Mii avatars on Nintendo's Wii video game console is based on that of kokeshi
