Japanese Emoticon Stamp


From the website:



For grading students in your anime appreciation class, confusing the heck out of your favorite librarian, or simply having the hippest stamp in town, you need the Kaoiro. 

Although it looks like a standard date stamp at first glance, the dials actually stamp out over 2000 different Japanese "kaomoji" (emoticons), face symbols popular to use in cellphone emailing.

"Kaoiro" literally means "face expression" and you will love using different color inks to make wacky patterns.

Some of the faces are easy to decipher at first glance, while you might need a Japanese friend to explain others.

Either way, this is a unique office gadget and one of the most fun we've seen in a while.


  • Emoticon/kaomoji face expression stamp with 7 belts and 20 symbols — combine for over 2,000 possible kaomoji/emoticons
  • Handmade, so actual unit may differ slightly from photos
  • 34 x 27 x 100mm (1.3 x 1.1 x 3.9")
  • Rubber, wood, and steel
  • White or black handle
