Meanwhile in China, Snoopy becomes the third party in a relationship, causes couple to break up

There are many grownups who still love plush toys and I have to admit, I’m one of them. Plush toys are cute, soft and cuddly, what’s not to like about them, right? I sometimes even hug a plushie as I work, as it makes working more comfortable and helps to take off a little bit of stress.

However, a lady in Hubei Province, China, takes her love for plush toys to a whole new level. Not only does she bring a Snoopy plushie with her every time she goes on a date with her boyfriend, she makes him buy a ticket for Snoopy when they go to the movies, and even orders meals for the plush toy when they go out for dinner!

Good grief! It’s a Snoopy-themed Japanese tea house!

Japan’s favourite cartoon dog continues his quest for country-wide domination this month with a brand new Snoopy-themed cafe scheduled to open in Oita Prefecture on April 19th. The cafe’s theme fuses Snoopy cartoons and traditional Japanese style, or wa (和).

Snoopy & Woodstock join the party at Mister Donut Japan this Christmas


The Japanese have a strange love for sinking their teeth into their favorite characters. We’ve seen Rilakkuma cakes and Hello Kitty doughnuts, next in line appears to be good-old Snoopy and his little yellow friend, Woodstock.

Mister Donut (or Misdo for short), the confectionary maker who brought us the jack-o’-lantern Hello Kitty doughnuts for Halloween, is already in the midst of preparing for the Christmas season, and boy does it look tasty!

Spiderman-Themed Dumplings Set to Please,May Lead to a Surge in Bad Puns

Spiderman-Themed Dumplings Set to Please,May Lead to a Surge in Bad Puns

Readers of this website are likely to be familiar with nikuman, the steamed rice pastry often made with meat filling.  In the past we have reported on the delicious slime shaped nikuman and Puyo Puyo themed nikuman. One thing to note about nikuman is that their name is made up of two parts niku (meat) and man (steamed bread) so that if you change the filling the suffix remains the same giving you pizzaman or curryman.

Universal Studios Japan took notice of how this is linguistically similar to the suffixes often used for superheroes in English and developed Spiderman (here the man would be pronounced kind of like a Jamacian accented mon).
