Japanese penguin mop top covers are a cute cleaning motivator

By grape Japan

One of Japanese online retailer Felissimo's biggest hits from their YOU+MORE! series (a play on the pronunciation of "humor" in Japanese) has been an "evolving" plushie that transforms from egg into King Penguin. Perhaps hoping to ride some of that penguin momentum--and transfer it to your efforts to tidy up your floor--they've released a cleverly cute motivator for cleaning: penguin mop tops.

The penguin mop tops have a button adjustable whole that can be fitted on top of mops like below, and when used (especially quickly), replicate a penguin flying across the floor.

In addition, they can also be used as tissue box covers.


The penguin mop top and tissue box is available from Felissimo's Japanese online and international stores.
