My last visit to Daiso was exciting due to the invasion of frog products. Frogs seem to be a popular animal in Japan.
a little blog dedicated to celebrating the awesomeness of frogs.
A few months ago, a Deviantart artist talked about being on the design team for the Momiji message dolls. She had designed a series of little dolls being in a book club, and I was really happy that she created one girl with a frog hat. So when I finally saw it in stores, I had to pick one up…but not for me! My best friend is a collector of of Momiji dolls and I’ve just gotten into the habit of giving her one every year for her birthday. Although she’s not a frog fan, maybe it’ll remind her of me.
The box is really creative this time, with a magnetic flap.
I went to Seattle last week and had a blast relaxing and shopping and eating lots of Panda Express. I also spotted a lot of really awesome frog items while there.
Check it out! It’s a mini version of my frog plush Norbert.

There was a really nice display in the front of the restaurant Miyabi with a fishing frog. Good food, too, but this isn’t a food blog so go somewhere else for a full review.
Vacations are nice for taking some time off, but even better for discovering new frog things. I’ll take a Frog-cation any day! (okay, agreed – that was lame.)
Here are some more frog things I received for my birthday.
A super cute bottle for the inner child in me! It has a strap and everything so I can carry it and not lose it. From Ynot! He also gave me the best mouse pad ever – KERORI! Unfortunately no photos of it because it’s been heavily (ab)used since I’ve received it.
The best part of this gift was the image on the back of the package:
They look so hostile! As if they’re saying, “Why are you taking photos of us?!?” Love it. The photographer sure knew what s/he was doing.
Another year, another birthday, another awesome opportunity to reap mountains of frog things! I’m really blessed to have great friends who know how much I adore frogs.
The most adorable birthday card ever – from Daiso. I found this a few weeks before my birthday and had to have it. But it’s weird to give a birthday card to yourself so I gave it to my boyfriend to give to me. Loophole found!
So of course Daiso keeps churning out those frog themed items that make me want to spend money unnecessarily. Luckily I’m getting better at resisting and just settled on taking photos for the blog.
