Only the Japanese would think of story where a peculiar hen lays eggs that sprout beans with messages inscribed on them—and then create a toy out of it–but either way I think the toy is pretty damn cool. Simply water the egg, and after a few hours the shell breaks, out comes a sprout with a message. They display six different messages, and the more you water ’em the bigger they get. Via BoingBoing
