This item from Amazon Japan looks like the best way to teach Japan tradition in the classroom.
And it is probably the answer to my question when researching the Girls Day dolls for a gift also.
This soft fabric hanging for the wall will also allow kids to handle the pieces and enjoy. All the dolls look like they are velcro taped on and the colours and materials look just right for the occasion. It looks perfect for show and tell at school and this way none of the dolls will get broken.
