Toy Guide for Vampire Knight Fans
Vampire Knight is a popular vampire manga and anime series by the talented Matsuri Hino. It is one of my favorites and I find the characters to be incredibly likable. Besides the multitude of manga volumes for this series, as well as the DVD sets (which are still being released slowly but surely), there are also several toy options for play, or to be kept as collectibles by fans of the series. Some are great for cosplay, and others are ideal for giving as gifts to any Vampire Knight fan. You'll find the pick of my favorites here in this Guide.
They are all 8 inches tall, which isn't very big, but they have nice detail and can hold up to a little rough play. Kaname Kurin is pictured first, which is the pureblood vampire who loves Yuki. Next is Zero Kiryu who is both a vampire hunter and a vampire. Following that doll is Hanabusa Aido (aka Idol) which is Kaname's right hand vampire, and also the one who can control and push forth ice. Last is Yuki Cross who had a surprising twist to her character as the series progressed. Each of these dolls would make great gifts for the Vampire Knight fan whether for a birthday, a Holiday such as Christmas, or a "just because" occasion.
Also making nice gifts, though for die-hard fans only (because of the quality of some of them) are costume jewelry pieces which are replicas of items worn by the characters of Vampire Knight. These are mostly just collectible and some of them (the Yuki bracelet for one) is of too poor quality for continuous wear (being thin metal that will bend). Others (like the pin) will last a lot longer. Still, they are all great for the occasional wear, or for cosplay to add authenticity to an outfit.
But, one of my favorite things is patches, and there are scores of them available for Vampire Knight fans. Pictured above are two of my favorites, a chibi Senri (the cool vampire who has a whip that forms from his blood), and a chibi Kaname. Other characters are also available.
And there you have it: some of the available toys and accessories that can be bought by fans, or for fans of Vampire Knight.
