Food making toys that provide kids with a false sense of accomplishment are nothing new. The Japanese toy Konapun is actually one of the most realistic — but that realism comes at a horrifying price.
First… the ‘food’ produced by Konapun is inedible. And if you’re already asking what the point is, it gets worse. Konapun is not for children under eight-years-old, and the fake food has an extremely short shelf life. So the Konapun might give young adults the sensation of cooking — but more importantly, the food’s tendency to rot after a few days will help provide a much-needed lesson in soul-crushing disappointment. Thank you Japan.
The video below is as fascinating as it is disturbing… Please enjoy.
