Strawberries and Cream, Sky and Lavender.
Mamegomas are little seals created by San-X that are small enough to live happily in a fish bowl and they eat soybeans. 'Mamegoma' means 'Bean Seal' in Japanese, the word bean here refers to their small size but they remind me a tiny bit of beans!

I can't find any where to buy these apart from ebay and I can't be bothered with that so I made my own. Being a Japanese creation they come in all kinds of colours and themes. I hope we don't get sued by San-X.
