Konapun - is it edible?

Konapun is a popular toy in Japan where you go through all the cooking steps to make small replica food items. Most of them aren't edible. With each toy set you can make different kinds of food like cakes, chicken nuggets, sushi etc. The kit comes with the ingredients and tools like tiny mixing bowls, a freezer, a stove, an oven and spoons. This was already sold in the market since 2006 till 2009. It seems that it's out of the market already. However, you can still buy it on ebay :).

I've seen these toy sets in Shanghai before where they sell Japanese products, but I never bought it. Such a pity cause when I'm looking at these videos I really want to make it as well ='D! Kona means powder and the main ingredient is powdered sodium alginate which is a fiber contained in seaweed. The fake food will rotten after a while. See RRCherrypie' videos below, it's just awesome to watch these videos and it's so cute, makes me think of cooking mama haha!! Look at those fish eggs o_o"! It says that the sushi's are edible - it's grape flavored jello, gummy candy and soft candy.

What do you think of Konapun? Would you buy it ^__^?
ATTENTION: I'm holding a new GIVEAWAY (headband giveaway), it seems that people couldn't see my blogpost of yesterday on their dashboard =[.


  1. AHHH! So cuuuute!
    So it's actually sort of... candy? But in sushi shape.
    Too bad it will rot away... You should totally bought some kit when you were in ShangHai!


  2. Can you eat those ice cream cones? It looks so edible.......
    Man die meid heeft geduld! En ze morst niet eens! Haha xx~

  3. @Mei, dit leek me ook echt iets voor jou =P want je houd ook om die klei dingetjes te maken die je in de oven moest zetten (naam opeens vergeten)~. Jup de sushi is van snoep gemaakt, die ijs van chocola (weet niet of deze eetbaar is xD). Maar de frietjes en burgers niet.

  4. Hahahaha wat gaaf! Dit lijkt me heel grappig om te doen xD

    Die fish eggs waren ook grappig, met zo'n dropper in van dat blauwe spul en dan met de frituurlepel eruit halen hahaha geweldig!

  5. I didn't realise that it would decay! Good thing I didn't get any! I kept getting tempted by the display in Toys R Us in Shanghai, but luckily the high price kept putting me off.

    For that kind of price I mean it's cute, but you might as well make the real thing!
