Edamame… My Endless Love

Recently, I’ve been adoring these little Japanese animated creatures — called Mameshiba — as their dog ears and animal-like faces always bring about a smile. Mameshiba has been a hit around the world, with numerous merchandising products, including stationery, plush toys, stickers, stamps and more. Of course, my favorite Mameshiba is Edamame who, aside from…
