We have covered in the past how popular squishies are in Harajuku, but squishies are about to be taken to the next level.
The new Mocchiri Pet Mocchi Maruzu was released on September 27 which is an electronic toy that combines the same material that squishies are made of.
Mocchi Maruzu is a cute new hamster character. He’s a digital pet made from that same satisfying squishy material and has a liquid-crystal display on his belly which features an app where he will talk to you as well as mini games.
This unique toy changes the whole way liquid-crystal display games work. Instead of regular old electronic toy buttons you instead push Maruzu’s round and squishy cheeks. This will make your pet hamster appear on the screen who you will interact with in various ways.
Maruzu can eat food, enjoys being squished, and can be raised from a baby into an adult hamster with 16 different traits. If you play with him he’ll soften up to you, but if you don’t he’ll become frightened so be careful.
Coins can be collected in the mini games which can be spent on decorating Maruzu’s bedroom. It’s equipped with 12 different apps and games to be enjoyed.
Satisfy your squishy needs by raising your very own digital Mocchi Maruzu!
