Mame Shiba

So I found this cute character....mame shiba. "Mame" means "bean" and "shiba" is shiba dog. These guys are sooooo cute!! I was searching for more products to buy for my stores and came across these youtube ads. What is soooo funny is that they are so cute and have cutesy voices but what they say is sooo unexpected. Watch first and then read below each one to see what they say.

In the one above the liittle beans says"Did you know, in France the Japanese word "tanpopo" (in English it is the word for the flower dandelion) means "peeing your pants".

In the one above, the little bean says "did you know, if you kiss....in one second 2 million viruses are exchanged".

In the one above, the little bean says "Did you know that a hippo's sweat is pink?"

In the one above the little bean says "did you know that a kangaroo's pouch is sooooo stinky?"

Hahaha! That's hilarious! I love the 'peeing your pants' one. :)

I love Mameshiba; I have a couple of the larger plushes but I want more! They're so cute.

Wow that was... incredibly random.

Those commercials are hilarious! What are they supposed to be advertising? I love how random they are. And the little bean always has something negative to say. Funny coming from something so cute.

They advertise the characters. They have plushes, memo pads, stickers, cell phone straps etc. Just cute Japanese anime...and yes, random negative info coming from cute little beans!!

So cute! Thanks for posting these together, and with translations.

Is there an official Mame Shiba web site by any chance?

Valerie said...

Er, scratch that last question :)

Sadly, the Flash on their site doesn't work for me, though I'm not sure why.

Where is Mameshiba sold in Japan? I'll be going to Japan sometime this year, and I'm completely in love with these things.
