I love cute things.
Maybe it’s because I grew up in Tokyo, Japan: home of Hello Kitty, Super Mario, and world capital of all things super-cute. In any case, I now own the five most adorable animal figurines on what I’m pretty sure is the face of the entire planet.
It’s all thanks to my funny friend, Sarah.
We have a strange tradition of giving each other Easter presents instead of Christmas gifts (her idea). Last year she presented me with a hideous stuffed longhorn, and I’ve been making fun of her for it ever since. (The stuffed longhorn currently resides in my closet. Batman is terrified of it!) This year, Sarah promised she’d get me something much cuter. And I have no idea where she found them, but she was definitely true to her word:

Aren’t they fun? Apparently the company—Home Grown Foods—also makes a cabbage puppy, mushroom lion, carrot goldfish, parsnip giraffe, cantaloupe turtle, kiwi koala… I might have to go back and get more! Close ups:
I could so turn him into Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread.
What do you think? Too weird?
I named the purple guy John Lennon.
The rest still need monikers… suggestions??
Ooh look: Cauliflower Chicken Nuggets!
Yum yum yum…
Speaking of things that are cute…
So which of the animal figurines is YOUR favorite?
I can’t seem to choose… If I must choose a favorite, I’ll go with the corn rabbit. No, the cauliflower sheep. Or the banana dog. Or… See? I can’t choose.
