Japanese Paper Balls

Walking into one of my favorite shops last week, I spotted these adorable Japanese paper balloons.  There were available in a a handful of designs – globes, cute animals, and beach balls.  They’re made out of incredibly thin paper so they’re very light and can be blown up with just one or two huffs and puffs.

I found out later that they’re used by kids as hackie sacks.  Surprisingly, they don’t really deflate when you bounce them with your feet.  It made me a bit sad to kick these adorable characters.  They’re just too cute to wreck!  They would be perfect decor for a kids birthday party or for a children’s room.  Plus they’re really cheap so you can replace them or give them away as party favors!
