When they first came out, I bought one for The Kid and, also, one for me. I love gadgets or -- called another way, a nicer way -- tools that are specific to their purpose. It’s the same reason that I love sitting in the exam room before the doctor comes, and admiring all of the labeled drawers and compartments, knowing the right tool is right there, waiting for the hand that needs it.
And cute little Japanese gadgets? Well, forget it: I really can’t resist.
