You Like, You Buy Vol 27

Marimo is a Hong Kong company that has cleverly built its fortunes on cute Japanese accessories:

Hong Kong small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are known for their creativity, flexibility and sensitivity to market trends. These strengths are well illustrated by Marimo Company Ltd.

It all began with the importation of a Hokkaido aquatic plant. Senior management of Marimo Company, with their expertise in product design, brand development and licensing, successfully conjured the aquatic plant to create a series of good luck charms under the brand name Marimo. Within six months, the brand had a strong following and today Marimo Company is the master licensee of the Marimo product series in Asia (excluding Japan).


Upon visiting the Marimo website, be prepared for all manner of cuteness to explode out of the screen at you. The amount of activity that's happening on the same page is quite disturbing and calls for a good dose of Ritalin.

Unfortunately 24 hours in a day just isn't enough time to go through everything in the Marimo product range. For example, I could go on at length about the undies bag and even then I wouldn't be able to do it justice.

What I want to share with you today is something just as practical. Behold the Soft Soft Wrist Rest:



The discreet black box opens to reveal a pubescent surprise:



Suffice to say, it all goes downhill from here. This is quite possibly the strongest contribution yet that small and medium-sized enterprises have made to our economic development.
