Ouch, it’s a Totoro invasion

Hope you had a great holiday! Totoro is one of my favorite animated characters ever. He is a forest spirit with a great yawn – and he is the lead character in the anime movie Tonari no Totoro directed by Hayao Miyazaki. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should. It’s totally cute as I […]
