It’s the Lunar New Year and 2009 is the year of the Ox. The Ox is not one of the most naturally kawaii animals but I’ve found some cute ones!
Of course, the Japanese can make anything cute and they do not fail with these stickers. So adorable and so Japanese. Available from Beautiful Work.
This kawaii keyring by JooSweetie features original artwork of cute little ox character and would make a lovely gift.
I knew Zazzle would have something cute and it has not let me down. This ox design is available on a whole bunch of different products but I like this simple postcard best.
Want some cute oxen for your ears? Team Chicken Pants is on the case with these cute earrings handmade from polymer clay.
And finally, an ox in a bowl of rice. That sure is something I want to stamp on everything in sight. Get yours From Japan With Love.
And a happy new year from us!
