Meet Japan’s Poo Poo Kids or In Other Words- Fart Dolls!

Japan, like the rest of the world, finds amusement with farts!
These little fart dolls make special noises when you squeeze them!
The names are Whoopie, Gas, Suu and Gary (?)
Not sure how the name Gary fits in all this, but it is Japan and oftentimes things do not make sense!

Only 1000 yen each! Add the cute whoopie cushion for only 260 yen each!
Order via Rinkya Stores for the low commission of $8.00, get the set of 4 for the low commission of $12!

Visit the Poo Poo kid’s home page for some funny videos, stories and click the baby to hear some noise (click Try Me)!

Post It Note USB- Japan Thinks of Everything!

I love posting the odd, wacky and cute USBs from Japan, however, typically they are for laughs or looks only (although, yes they are all USB drives)

The newest USB release however, is not very cute or wacky, but rather Post it Notes!!

USB stick holds 100 mini notes and 2GB of memory.

I would love to have one of these attached to my laptop!
