Japanese sea monkeys just fish in a barrel – well, shrimp in a cube

Nothing beats keeping innocent wildlife captive for one’s own entertainment, especially when there’s a retro feel to the cruelty, which is why I couldn’t resist these Japanese versions of those old canards known as Sea Monkeys.

Supplied by Logi-Net in Japan, the HoloHolo kit consists of a mini plastic aquarium with seven - count ‘em - tiny shrimp swimming around inside. No “Just add water for an undersea kingdom” with these kids. Branchiopods definitely R Not Us.

What’s more, at a starting price of just ¥2,100 ($17), the Logi-Net seven-prawn deal represents plenty better value than most restaurants down Tokyo way.
