What’s that dancing on your nightstand?

Watch out for things that go BUMP in the night: ghosts, goblins, and that old vacuum cleaner sitting in the middle of your hallway!

The safest way to get from your bedroom to the bathroom in pitch darkness is with a trusty night-light. And thanks to toymaker Takara TOMY there’s a cute one that’s part mushroom, part chicken. (Say what?!)

Walk past Kinopuyo’s motion sensor and he’ll bob up and down, emitting a soft, red glow. He’ll also respond with a careful nudge, so as long as you don’t sock him into the air.

His name comes from the word for mushroom (kinoko) and the onomatopoeia for a soft, jelly-like texture (puyo-puyo), which is how he feels like when he sways around giddily. Put him anywhere that needs a little illuminating; He’ll help you find your keys and guide you to the bathroom, no sweat!

At the end of this month, TOMY plans celebrate Kinopuyo’s launch by lining up hundreds of them along Tokyo’s Omotesando boulevard as 70 of Santa’s helpers march their way to Kiddyland. Imagine that, Japanese elves and dancing mushrooms all on the same street. Sounds like a party to me! (/^o^)/\(^o^\)
