Full of beans



Soybeans, or edamame, are a recent trend in Japan. Why? Um.... Dunno.



Anyways, looks like our little blue friend has got his head stuck in some bean pods.

Oh, and here is a Japanese soybean toy.



Yes, really.

Do you mean edamame toys are recent in Japan? Edamame as a food has been around for a few centuries.

Sorry, I'm a bit of a Japanese foodie.

I mean edamame as a pop culture phenomenon. Fish eggs have been around forever too, but it was just a couple years ago I started seeing those scary Tarako Kewpies and even worse Tarako Kewpie/Stitch hybrid thingies come to steal our souls.

Thinkgeek has had the Edamame popping toy since some time last year. They also carry the Infinate Bubblewrap and Box Mailer Tear keychains:

I love that infinite bubble wrap toy, but I'm afraid I'd never be able to stop popping!!
