For the Japanese travel fear that dare not speak its name, behold the PuruPuru Mini Toilet bag! A quick flip to the back side convinces the already-anxious traveler (especially the one headed to barbaric foreign lands) that this product might not just be desirable, but urgently needed. Not only does it answer when nature calls, it zips up afterwards like an industrial-strength baggie. Better buy a dozen, one in every color!
