11 Funny Products from Japan

As you know, Japan is our number one source for nonsensical gadgets and toys. Today I am displaying some of the products I had fun browsing through. Brilliant Christmas gifts for people with a sense of humor.

1. R2D2 Pepper Mill

I love Star Wars, so it would be awesome to have this 11cm tall pepper shaker in the kitchen. Just load it with pepper, and turn Artoo's head to make him sprinkle the spices from his bottom.

2. Star Wars Lightsaber Chopsticks

These chopsticks won't sear and blacken your food. Practice your chopstick skills like a true padawan.

3. Frog Cool & Hot Foot Relax Pillow

These frog-themed foot pads will cool or warm your feet when needed.

4. Crunching Rocky USB Mascot

Stick this gadget in your USB slot and Rocky will start doing his rep of infinite crunches. Great motivation booster!

5. Pocky Chocolate Parody Chopsticks

Real Pockies tend to snap easily, so they finally made durable and of course washable "chocolate" sticks for all Pocky lovers.

6. Hello Kitty Boiled Egg Shaper

Tired of eating egg-shaped eggs? This little cooking tool will pimp your eggs à la Hello Kitty. You can also use it as a mould for making Hello Kitty–shaped rice balls.

7. Cup Noodle Mug

Drink your coffee or tea (or noodles!) like a true ramen lover! It comes with a ceramic lid.

8. Small Kurosuke Stamp (Tonari no Totoro)

Sign your letters with this cute Ghibli seal.

9. Rice Bowl Strap

Decorate your cell phone or keychain with this "fake food" strap.

10. The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass Sound Drop Full Set of 6

These sound drop toys play the nostalgic sound effects from the Legend of Zelda games. There are six different sound effects in this collection: 1) posing a riddle, 2) picking up a heart, 3) explosion sound, 4) bow and arrow sound, 5) picking up various items (such as gems), and 6) sounds when you run into an enemy.

11. Star Wars R2-D2 USB Hub

This little droid can serve as a hub for 4 USB ports. So if you're short on USB slots, Artoo is happy to help.
