Japanese Sushi Candy

I found this video on one of my favorite dumping ground sites for the web today. One of the questions asked about the video in the blog post was: I wonder if kids in the United States would have the patience to play with this kit? Really a first world problem, but something to think about. It takes our beloved Easy Bake Oven and brings it to a whole new level of rad. It also makes me wonder what kind of food related toys and candy children have in other cultures that are different from our own. Dear Reader, what kind of rad candy or food related kid’s toys do you know about? Please share your infinite knowledge with Feedbag in the comments section.

This second video from the same YouTube user shows another Japanese toy food, this one completely inedible but based on the classic American fast food: cheeseburger & fries. I’m totally captivated by the chemical process of making the “food”, the tiny packages, and the intricate nature of the toy. I have to say I’d really love to visit Japan. I don’t think I’d ever get bored there. Japanese culture is amazing, the people are gorgeous, and the food is endlessly differently delightful.
