Guess the Japanese Beauty Invention!

In the United States, we have plenty of off-the-wall beauty gadgets — hello, Lipstamp! — and the same goes for Japan. Some are a little kookier than others, so I've rounded up eight of the most unusual for this quiz. Can you guess what these items are? (Obviously, if you know Japanese, you'll have an advantage.) Good luck!

All I can say is....wow. If you thought this was entertaining. There's an honest-to-God book called "Useless Japanese Inventions." It's hilarious!

I used to have a song that went "Ohayo gozaimasu, Miki-Miki-Miki-chan, Miki-chan, Miki-chan." I sang it to the beloved Mikan the cat. Sob. I miss him!

3/8 It doesn't help if you can read some Japanese but don't understand what the words mean. I got Mikan but didn't know what it was. :(

Hey, no fair! The first product also comes in a lip balm form, so that's what I guessed. I own the orange, peach, apple and pear. I think they all have companion hand creams too.
