Visited a museum of toys & automata in Arima, Japan back in 2018 similar to this sort of thing.

Admit it, you’re the person who bought “Rabbit in a Cabbage”.

But then who could resist such a cutie.

The site only shows two actual mechanical automata.

It’s left to the viewer to speculate as to which ones and what hellish force animates the others.
