Some Japanese figurines I know little about

I inherited these painted bamboo figurines (approx 2 1/2 ins tall) from my mother. We lived in Kobe up to 1936 when my family and I wisely returned to England. I discovered them in a cardboard box and I wonder whether any of you can give me information about them - maybe dinner table ornaments made for foreigners? Any answers gratefully received, as always!

No title. Just a bunch of weird dolls in trash bags.

My late mother-in-law collected dolls of questionable value. Like 18" Kurt Cobain motion-activated figurines... and so much more. We need all 30 of them out of our basement. How, Internet? HOW? [more inside]

Help me identify these figurines.

Please help me identify these odd little figurines and "bunny house" teapot I bought for my bunny-mad niece. http://i38.tinypic.com/2vlpt2x.jpg I found them in St. Jacobs, Ontario, but even the owner of the antique store didn't know what they are called. I would like to buy more (from where? Ebay?"?) but I certainly can't until I know what they are called. The first two pics are of the figurines,the second two pics are of the back and front of the teapot. The teapot is hollow inside and certainly looks as if it was meant to be lit from within by a candle. All the items appear to be made out of plaster. Any help with identification would be much appreciated.

Toys with magnets in their shoes

Anyone remember a toy series from the '80s or '90s which had figurines about an inch or so tall with magnets in their shoes? I think they were part of M.A.S.K. in space, but I can't find any info about them.
