kawaii cute pink tarako kewpie softie plush ...made for my daughter

The video & jingle for this japanese pasta sauce made with fish roe is one of my little girl's youtube obsessions!
*warning...it will get stuck in your head*
Like a good mama I have hunted down any Tarako Kewpie mascot items for her to play with. After watching the most current commercial which featured pink kewpies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78lbf4ySzA0
...she asked me if I would find her a pink tarako & the search was fruitless...but with a little inspiration & an evening of embroidery & sewing...this is what I came up with.

I'd say she's pretty happy with it!
*Note: if you live in Japan & want to do a personal swap with me for any Tarako Kewpie items at anytime! Please leave me a comment & we'll work something out!
:o)

Hello there! My name is June said...

Thank you so much!
The tarako kewpie is a combination of a fish roe & a kewpie doll... The fish roe (egg) is an ingredient in the pasta sauce & the company that makes it has a kewpie for their mascot. We stumbled across the commercials on youtube and have been hooked ever since. My babygirl thinks it's just another kid's show & she even sings along with the jingle! We have a lot of fun!
