Go ahead and toss your Easy-Bake Oven — there’s a new food toy in town, and it makes conveyor belt sushi look like a thing of the past. Japanese toy manufacturers Takara Tomy have created a table-top sushi ferris wheel, modeled after one at Mount Fuji’s Fuji-Q Highland amusement park.
The six-carriage wheel comes with plates, a rice molder, squid-shaped rice paddle and the makings of a rollercoaster-like ramp from which plates of sushi can slide down on, all for ¥10,778 (USD$98). The set is available for purchase beginning in July (sushi fix-ins sold separately).
If that’s not enough to convince you to put this on your Christmas or birthday wish list, the commercial below features an ultra-cool animated sushi chef jiving along to Japanese club music.
