The fun thing about having a best friend who lives in Japan is that you get to receive really, and I mean really, random, silly, yet cute, gifts.
Check this out.
Aren't these awesome?!
They're blow-up paper penguins.
You blow them up from a hole near their feet (yeah it's a little risque) and viola! You have cute little paper penguins!
I have decided that they are to be the start of our winter decorations. Hey, it's already snowing on the east side of the state!
Previous Japanese presents have included: a sushi car freshener (because I dislike sushi and no it didn't smell like sushi), a good luck waving cat, singing cards (even written in Japanese), and many more that I know I'm forgetting.
What are your silly gifts?!
