I Need These Right Now

From The Land With The Coolest Toys Ever aka The Big J comes this set of….eight Hamsters that hang on the side of your drinking glass. These are known as “Gashapon, or Gachapon.” To review:

Right. An onomatopoeia. I knew that. Now let’s see what we have. These are $2.50 USD, and the maker is here. Can’t really tell how to order ’em.

HUMAN X DOG X CAT Update!

Got an update on the Mewgaroo Hoodie from earlier today. AB, Peanutcat, and debg expressed an interest in buying them- and it’ll cost ya. (Currency differences, y’know.) Anyway, C.O. reader AJ found a site that will ship to the U.S. Or try eBay. And we just got an email from Mio Kumagai from the PR team of BE-S Co.,Ltd. in Japan. They’re reading C.O. in The Big J.

Imagine that.

We read your article on Cute Overload! Are you getting a lot of feedback from your readers? For your reference, we got thousands of pre-orders yesterday and now both sizes are out of stock! At the moment, unfortunately we do not handle the direct sales to oversea individuals, but if you really wish to get it you might want to check with the shops listed at the Market Place in Amazon Japan.

C.O. Follow-Up Post: Coincidence? I Think Not!

“Hi C.O., back in November you posted a custom, pillow portrait by artist Sarah Clark. We couldn’t resist — we got two for our cats Mac and Cheese (Cheese is the smiling goof.) Plus, we got one of her stock pillows, which looks very much like our foster kitty!” -Charmz.

HUMAN X DOG X CAT

f42That’s the slogan on the back of the “Mewgaroo” hoodie, straight from the brilliant minds of The Big J. Stuff your kitteh in the front pouch for some portable snorgling- even has a removable liner (second photo below) to collect all the cat hair. We’re not sure why that person (first photo below) is hanging out of the dryer; remember this key concept: make sure your kitteh isn’t IN the hoodie when drying. (Also notice the CAT EARS ON the hoodie. They’ve done it again.)

Yep, That’s A Kitteh Hairband

There’s a (naturally) Japan-based designer named Campanella, and she created these so you can plop a kitteh right down on your head. According to Bored Panda, there are no plans to mass produce these. Yet.

“I Want To Own All Of The Squee”

That was the title of Liz L.’s email, and she’s right on the mark here. These are amazing creations by a Phoenix-based artist named Macy McKenny.

“If I win the lottery anytime soon, I think I know where my first shopping spree will be!”

2
“Hooray for the USA making a solid step forward to catch up to Japan in the Squee Product Business.”

3
“I think my brain is about to explode from all of the Cute.”

4
“In fact, I fear the day a villain harnesses the power of Cute to make innocent brains explode.”

Speakers UP For This One

Earlier, we told you about the kitteh DJ turntable thing. Think that was amazingly crazy?

Think AGAIN.

We’ve had these latte-art stories before– some commenters scoff that “Oh, that’s ‘SHOPPED.” (Apparent logic: if you’ve never seen it before, it must be faked.)

While these are not quite at the artistic level of that previous story, they’re still plenty Qte. Bonus points for the wild narration, too. And all! The! Exclamation! Points!


Paul P. saw this on Engadget.

YO! Give It Up For DJ Hairball

Or..something. Anyway, here’s the latest CAT QTE from Bizzaro Land The Big J. Cat Scratch Fever, anyone?

Your kitteh can now DJ with the best of ’em. (Is this where I say “Fo’ Shizzle?” I’ve never said that before.)

Quoting RN24: “The cat scratch turntable has been spotted in Tokyo at Hikarie in Shibuya and online at Nissen, Amazon and Rakuten. Retailing for 2,800 yen (US$24.02,) it comes in parts that are easily assembled.”

Waiter, There’s A Goldfish In My Tea

Well, of COURSE there is. Hard to believe, but these AREN’T from The Big J. Taiwan this time around, says Neatorama. NR goes on to say, “Each one is assembled by machine and hand in a 16-step process. Tug on the cotton string and the bag will appear to swim within your cup.”

OK, let’s see it.
