Everyone remember the creepy bloody lamp?
Kyouei Design also has a liquid bookmark!
Comes in many 2 other colors (pink & grey) besides the bloody red (but let's face it- the red is the coolest looking!)
More than just a bookmark- Fool Your Friends:
Check out the Frame Napkin from the same designer!

Expect lots of exclusive Japan Transformers toys in the upcoming months featured here on the blog! Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen hits movie theaters on June 24th and Japan already has churned out an exclusive!
Takara Tomy are releasing Optimus Prime & Bumblebee Robo Qs- the tiniest walking robots!
They stand only 1.3 inches high (think thumb-sized) and are remote controlled (the remote control is HUGE).
Although Optimus Prime & Bumblebee may have issues with being considered kawaii, we cannot resist these cute little robots!
Speaking of kawaii- check out the Mickey Mouse Transformer!
4200 yen each- pick up yours through Rinkya Stores!

This reminds me of one of my favorite games when I was a kid- Mouse Trap!
In Japan it is for traditional nagashi soumen. You grab the noodles as they go down the cold water slide.
The pipes also break off and act as bowls to hold spices in it to place on the noodles.
8400 yen- tax included- a great deal to make dinner or lunch more exciting with the family! Small commission fee of $17 via Rinkya Stores
