This is a terrific video, courtesy of one of our readers. It shows a toy boat that's based on the one seen in Ponyo, it runs on candle power, and the pot makes a pop-pop-pop sound, just like in the movie. This is terrific! Why can't we ever get cool toys like this?
No doubt the price would be steep for most import shops, but it would be worth it for the bragging rights. If my play money wasn't already devoted to scoring the new Beatles CDs, I'd grab this toy boat in a heartbeat. Now we need a larger version that we can actually use on the lakes, heh heh.
