Misaka really loves this frog. Where does this frog come from? Does it exist both in anime and in real life (I feel like I've seen this frog somewhere before)?

Misaka and Gekota

It is very possible that you have seen it several times in the anime ( even in the game), it is a gekota

Gekota (ゲコ太 Gekota?) is a popular mascot found in merchandise marketed to children in the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe. A Gekota fan is called a Gekoer. Misaka Mikoto is a huge fan of the franchise it belongs to, and much to her consternation gets her labeled as someone who is childish. enter image description here

And without a doubt there is also real life merchandise, and allot of look alike products, with a few samples bellow.

So, did Toaru Majutsu no Index get a gekota from another anime or Gekota become famous because of Toaru Majutsu no Index? – Darjeeling Feb 26 '14 at 14:19
as stated in the first 2 lines of the quote. " in the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe". Made by Toaru Majutsu no Index. Popular due to Toaru Majutsu no Index. – Dimitri mx Feb 26 '14 at 14:23
Ah, I thought that I saw this Gekota much longer before Toaru Majutsu no Index. Maybe I was wrong... – Darjeeling Feb 26 '14 at 14:26
@ShinobuOshino There are tons of look alike products. the sticky hand (the toy) had a few resembling Gekota face's, and I believe those where made before Toaru Majutsu no Index even was released. – Dimitri mx Feb 26 '14 at 14:29

You might be thinking about Kerokerokeroppi as something similar to the Gekota.
