Almost a month ago, I received a pitch from Justin, the CEO of Fake Food Japan asking whether I would be interested in reviewing his products, the sort that makes awesome gifts that certainly no one has. His products are made in Japan, in fact, handmade fake food with themed items such as business card cases, cell phone accessories, keychains, magnets, and more. I received 2 items from him for my review. So here goes my review for the "Shrimp Tempura (small) Keychain" and "Taiyaki (small) USB Flash Drive (4GB)":

OK, need to interrupt you guys with some cute pictures of my 10 months old girl checking out the products that I got for my review.
Alright back to my review now, as mentioned earlier, I received 2 items for my review which are the "Shrimp Tempura (small) Keychain" and "Taiyaki (small) USB Flash Drive (4GB)". I like that the items are packaged neatly and they came with warning note at the bottom which says "This fake food is not consumable!"
Now the reason I requested the "Taiyaki (small) USB Flash Drive (4GB)" as one of the items to review is because my hubby lost his USB drive a while ago and I am so happy I get to give this to him! Hahaha! He chose the design himself (he loves fish!).
His feedback on the USB drive is that it is life-like and easy to notice because of its size (meaning not so easy for him to lose it!) although he did mentioned that there might be a problem when using it on notebooks or media players due to its size. Luckily our media player is high enough and the USB drive is shorter than our media players' height so that is not a problem for us. So far, the USB drive works perfectly for him!
Next item, the "Shrimp Tempura (small) Keychain"! My girl was so quick, she grabbed the keychain before I could snap some close-up shots of it! I do notice a strong plastic-ky smell from the keychain but after a few days of airing it, there's no more trace of the smell anymore.
I was surprised at its size, almost the size of my palm actually! And yes, it does look life-like! I chose it because I love eating tempura! Every time we eat out at some sushi restaurants, without fail I would be ordering tempura dishes! So yes, getting this keychain for my review is awesome as I am reminded of one of my favorite food! Hahahah!
Check out the pictures below for more details. I also love the key ring, it is so easy to hook into my keys!
