Japanese Maid Cafe Girl Plush Ball Chain Charm


If you've always wanted a Japanese maid cafe girl for your very own - or just certain parts of one - now you can have the next best thing: a plush cellphone charm or mouse wrist rest that looks like a maid's lower half.

Japan's legions of "otaku" geeks just love maids for some reason and Tokyo's geek mecca of Akihabara boasts abundant Maid Cafes which offer platonic, non-threatening cosplay companionship to socially stunted basement-dwellers. Though the maids are not available for "take out", some manufacturers have introduced maid products that lonely dudes can bring home - and even sleep with.


We suppose one could sleep with these Japanese Maid Cafe Girl's Plush Ball Chain Charms but they're actually designed to hang from your cell phone or zipper. No, not THAT zipper.
The maid charms come with an easily detachable ball chain that lets you position them beneath your wrist while you surf the 'net for tech gadgets, gaming tips and... other things.

Choose from black or pink - both are about 7-inches tall and are made from stain-resistant polyester. You can order direct from Strapya at their website: 1,030 yen (about $10.80) each plus shipping. Maid to order, heh.
