Sea Anemone Accessory Holder

By Michael Gakuran | | Other | 12 Comments |

This week’s Omoshiro Zakka (Interesting Item) is the sea anemone named ‘Harry’ (seemingly named after its designer). A fun-filled desk item that allows you to stick just about *anything* into its tentacles. I recommend accessories, though…

The tentacles have some sort of wire stiffening them, but the plastic exterior covering makes them somewhat soft and malleable (I’m loving trying to use design-based technical words today :p). A suction cup (吸盤) and screws on the base allow you to stick this lil’ fella just about anywhere – on the wall, a mirror, a computer or maybe even your forehead. The world is your oyster, or sea anemone in this case.

Designed by Harry/Harry Jr. and sold at Garakuda Boueki in Shibuya for 3150 yen. Beautiful.

    Yea, looks like it would be popular if stores decided to stock it!

    I have a mystical shadow that goes out and sweeps the stores during the dead of night to bring me the goods :D

    I haven't bought it Rooty! I just found it :p Anyway, Hakoton sounds cool. Will keep my eyes open!

    3150 yen!? JET must be paying you well, Ducky, because that is extortionate. Next week's mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a Hakoton toy. They were featured on Adam and Joe Go Tokyo about seven years ago and I've have wanted one ever since; http://www.gizmo-guru.com/coolstuff/hakoton.htm

  6. Yes, but does it come with bioluminescence? Course you'd have to get a real anemone for that, and would simply be cruel. Unless you used extracted proteins from a real…and got a highly sensitive detector…

    See? For just a few hundred thousand more yen and a tiny bit of anemone harrassment, this thing could be amaaazing! Or you could just use fibre optics.
