Protect Your Baby From Being Sick By Making Us All Laugh!

In Japan and other Asian countries, when a person is sick they wear surgeon masks to avoid spreading it, and they also will wear them during seasons of cold to prevent themselves from getting sick.  

Most are your average plain surgeon masks in blue or white, however we have found these ones modeled by babies, that are just too cute!

the "bandit"

the "hitler" ??
Not sure what to call that lil mustaches besides  Hitler one, that could not be what they intended??

Cat Food Surprise!

Looks like your cat's favorite food, but....

 It is a candle!  Thankfully this candle does NOT have a scent, I do not have a cat, but I imagine a cat's food does not smell good.  Japan is random, lol

Merry Christmas Bentos- Anime Edition 2010!

It is that time of year again for our Christmas bento special!!

Last year, we premiered an anime special and it was so popular, we decided to do it again!  Enjoy!

Medama Oyaji, from GeGeGe no Kitaro puts a Santa hat on.  No offense, but this is finally an anime bento I will not find too cute to eat, the eyeball creeps me out, even if he is a beloved character!!

Aww, one of my favorites- Totoro and a small white Totoro!!  Falls under my too cute to eat category!

 An Evangelion Christmas!  What a cute Miss Santa Misato Katsuragi makes! Amazing detail on the Santa suit!

Chopper from One Piece is already a reindeer- so putting him in a Christmas bento is perfect!

A fun little bento scene featuring Pokemon characters and Pikachu!

Adorable Jiji is paired up with a snowman rather than her favorite witch, Kiki!

Kawaii!!! Santa Stitch!
