This Little Piggy Went Splat



This little piggy has a hidden talent. Throw him against a wall, drop him from a 30-story building, flatten him with a steamroller, and he will return to his original shape in seconds. He simply can't be squashed.

The resilient porker, which is known as a lokuloku, can be purchased in Japan for about $3. (Very kawaii, too.) I have no idea what kind of plastic they're made from, but it's incredibly cool. (And a little creepy, too.) If anyone is going to Japan, please buy one for me!

I totally need one. Those are so cool!!! We're expected to have a snow storm around 2:00 (it's 1:30 now) and I could use it!

Awwwwwwww! How CUTE!

Oh, they sell those in Korea as well, for a little over a dollar! Dang, I should have bought one for you-they're adorable, and stick to ceilings as well.
Oh well. Hopefully they'll come to the US soon!

I really want one!!!!

Raph said...

If you still want one, my friend is going to Japan on the 29th. ^^ She asked me what I want for a souvenir, so I could say I want a lokuloku (plus something else), if you like. (:

ananka said...

Raph: You are truly the greatest guy I know. Thanks so much for the offer! But I have a feeling it would cost a fortune to send something from Australia. (I once sent a package to a friend in Melbourne and it was UNBELIEVABLY expensive!)

Raph said...

Hmmm.... possibly. If I send it by sea (and it's under 500 grams) it's about $6 AUD. Air mail is $8.50. It's not... that bad. xD

Raph said...

And thank you for the compliment. :)
