Since 1950, Peko-chan, the little girl in pigtails with her trademark grin, has appeared on the packaging for Milky candy and other Fujiya products. In Japan, some store displays include a beautifully sculpted, life size bobble head mascot of Peko-chan. The mascots are highly prized, and often stolen. The pictures below, from a police station in Osaka, reveal the bounty of a sting operation that recovered stolen mascots. The heart wants what the heart wants.
