More examples of the Japanese kicking our asses in the cute department

Thanks to eagle-eyed reader (and former fabulous roommate Glenda D.B.) We have yet another example of Japanese-kick-ass-itude on C.O. This time, it’s flower pups. For crying out lou’.





Holy flowery muzzlepuffs, People!


Headaches? puffy eyes? Sick of those boring sleep masks?

It’s time to recycle yer old United Airlines napping mask, People. Check out "Warm Whiskers Eye Pillows". Warmed or chilled, these ani-pals will soothe you… (And entertain your friends to no end.)

You’ve GOT to be kidding me, sender-inner Clayton R. Do you have your PAWS ON THE PULSE* or what.The redonkulousness continues at Dream Essentials…



The best part is under the photo, it’s all: "May we suggest complimenting your purchase with a warm whiskers neck wrap?" UH, YES! YOU MAY!

*I did NOT just say that.

Opportunity Knockingk

Cuteoverloadtile_1Listen up, Peeps, here’s Teh Deal. Without the good people at TypePad, CuteOverload simply could not exist in it’s current form. What do I mean? Well, When you have a high-traffic website, the amount of data that flows out, called bandwidth, can be <singsong> expensive! </singsong>. Big photos don’t help—it’s like a BIG PIPE of HAMSTERS flowing out to all ya’ll. (Er something.) There is a large cost associated with pushin’ that data out!

Recently when TypePad called me, I picked up a hot pink phone, brushed away the bunnies, and said; ‘CuteOverload, how may I help ya?" Their kind peeps axed me to take a look at a new blogging service called ‘Vox’.

At first, I was all, "um, HOW can this be any better than TypePad?" 

Well, I found out.

It’s like they took all the good parts of TypePad and made an even simpler way to blog. Post content in a flash—even my Grandma can do it. It plays nice with ANY content you want to talk about. YOur pets, your beau, your stinky receptionist job, your annoying boyfriend—you name it. The templates are fabu, and you can change them as often as you like. Putting your thoughts on the Web, sharing photos, commenting, blogging from your mobile phone is even easier than a puppy snorgling.

Anywho—don’t take this kitten’s word for it. Check it out for free, yo. It’s by invite-only and as C.O. readers, the first thousand peeps GET IN FREE!

Loco, loco roco

We’ve seen a lot of cute games. Loco Roco takes one look at other Cute games and kicks their tiny cute game asses. One by one! You must check it out. It’s available starting tomorrow.

It’s got this hilarious, layered, made-up language soundtrack, while you roll and bounce a blobby yellow character around, running into strawberry-like treats a avoiding little spikey urchin guys. The character is all fat, roly poly and smiling. It’s good times.




I think it’s even better than Hamtaro, and that’s TOUGH!
