{     Tofu Oyako Mini Blister Collection     }    

So, you like cute little toys, eh? How little exactly? And just how cute? 'Cuz I'll be monkeyfucked if I've ever seen anything smaller and cuter in the world of collectible toys than these little guys. Everything I've read about them says they're an inch tall, but I think that measurement is a bit generous. And if you're not already a fan of design team Devilrobot's Tofu series, than this Lilliputian army of adorableness is ready to convert you. The Tofu Oyako design is fairly simple- sentient cubes of tofu with bodies attached, and cute little faces that express emotions ranging from glee to sorrow and love-for-all to global domination. Up to this point, they have been available as 2-3 inch keychains, plushes and even a giant-ass monster Tofu the size of a human baby. Now they've gotten all miniaturized. In Japan, you can buy these things out of a capsule machine (along with everything from designer panties to collectable candies) so they come in a translucent egg, and each figure is blister-carded so you collector-types can keep them pristine mint. Over here, they're running about $2.50, which is close to the Japanese asking price. My hookup, as always, is Ningyoushi's Workshop- they always manage to have the cool shit before anyone else. Omar and Denise who run the online store at ningyoushi.com do a kick-ass job with the speedy shipping and fair pricing. In fact, if you want to own all of the Tofu minis, they will hook you up with the entire 11 figure set for $22. Insert cheesy infomercial voice- "That's a savings of over $5!!"
