As a parent on the go, you don't want to be encumbered with extra things to carry around. Why bring along bottled water and a separate plastic cup when you can combine the two functions in one?

Heso Production Co., Ltd., the Osaka-based unusual goods maker which you may recall from our article on cans containing "air of the departing Heisei Era" has now launched a convenient and hygienic two-in-one cup / bottle cap series from their Ocean Crew aquarium-themed brand, representing the various animals you're likely to find at Japanese aquariums and sea parks, and each one in cute designs sure to please kids.

Let's take a gander at the lineup of animals you can choose from:

  • Dolphin
  • Turtle
  • Otter
  • Pink Dolphin
  • Octopus
  • Clownfisih
  • Jellyfish
  • Whale Shark
  • Penguin
  • Sea otter
  • Spotted garden eel and orange-barred garden eel

As you can see, the cups have a grooved area in the base allowing you to fit it on to most plastic bottles:

So it looks like this:


Not only can you benefit from the great functionality, convenience and cute designs to choose from, but since kids' lips never directly touch the bottle, it's a hygienic solution too.
