annemari, you can get them in e-bay. Search "Pentax key chain" and you will see some options.
They come with a hot shoe adapter so you can attach them on your camera!

...and when bidding, bear in mind they only cost 200 yen in Japan -- that's US$2.43 at current exchange rates. I've seen some of these going on Ebay for insane prices, despite the fact there's a continual flood of them being added.

By the way, tiny thing, but it's "Tomy" with a y, not an i. ;-)

Actually in Japan it's Kabushiki-gaisha Takara Tomī
(as per Wikipedia)

Tomy is an American/European spelling of the name.

Sucks to be corrected on trivialities, doesn't it?

lol no, not really. And in Japan, it's technically 株式会社タカラトミー -- there is no "exact" spelling, because there is no set-in-stone transliteration scheme to convert from a character-based language to one using the Roman alphabet.

Hence, the most official source is the company itself, and it is spelt with a Y according to their own official, Japanese URL, as well as their official company logo:

http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/

So no, it isn't spelled with an i. And Wikipedia isn't the be-all end-all of knowledge -- they get it wrong too...
