Your Very Own Tiny Glowing Pile Of Plastic Firewood


When it comes to selling miniature replicas of burning logs, nobody can beat Tokyu Hands. Yes, this patented FireWood(TM) product will have you on the edge of your seat as you pretend you’re drinking that whisky & soda out in the wild woods (although the illusion works a bit better if you’re the size of a GI Joe). Adding to the whoa-I-can-almost-smell-the-smoke verisimilitude, if you blow on the little electric logs in “Outdoor Mode,” the embers leap to life, even if you haven’t yet drunk enough to set your breath on fire. Whisky and batteries not included.
