Licca-chan is a dress-up doll which is loved by children across Japan since 1967.

It’s first produced by a toy company called Takara Co. Licca is created by former shojo manga artist Miyako Maki.

This doll becomes popular in Japan like Barbie dolls. And not just in Japan but also in countries like Taiwan.

As fashion changed in years Licca-chan also changed.
