It’s, of course, not enough that Glico makes the best Japanese sweets and snacks around. (Pocky! Pretz! Glico ice cream!) They also have toys which let you make your own adorable bunny and bear themed Glico “ice cream” cones. It’s not really ice cream in this case but still some sorta delicious looking something.
I’m convinced that “konapun” toys were invented by Japanese toy makers to drive me into a cuteness frenzy and lure me to defect to Japan.
This konapun kit in particular is for making fake miniature soft serve ice cream cones, or “soft cream” as they call it in Japan.
Be sure to play it to the end so you can see them squeeze the ice cream out!
