Miso Happy

These charming bowls are sure to put a smile on your face - because they're wearing a smile as well! Cleverly designed, each set of two bowls can be displayed, one fitted snuggly atop the other, to form a happy little boy or girl. The "hair" is a wooden bowl, stained either black or red, and the face is a ceramic bowl with simply illustrated eyes and mouth. Ear-like tabs extend from the sides of the ceramic bowl to keep wooden bowl from sliding down too far when stacked. These adorable dishes will be pleased to serve up miso soup and rice, chili and crackers, oatmeal and fruit, or whatever combination makes you happy. Designed in Japan, made in China. Girl and boy sold separately.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Comments about WOODEN SMILEY FACE BOWLS:

    This is a cleverly designed set that will appeal to children and whimsical grown-ups alike. I was impressed by the quality of the product once it arrived: the lower bowl (the face) is nice heavy pottery and the upper bowl (the hair) is a lightweight laquer bowl for salad or maybe miso soup. I ordered the set for a brother and sister, but am now planning to order more for friends!

      Comments about WOODEN SMILEY FACE BOWLS:

      This was a gift for a friend who lost her home in a fire. She needed something to bring a smile to her face during this tough rebuilding phase. She used to have a Happy Buddha miso bowl that she loved, but it was destroyed in the fire. She cried when she opened the package. She was so delighted to have a positive symbol of her new future. Mi-so happy to bring her smiles! Thank you.

        We're always trying to stay a-head of the game when it comes to finding great new designs. And, let's face it, these bowls are way too cute! Would you gift this set to a friend to make them smile?

        A little pricey.

        Just not my thing, a pain to store and wouldn't be used often enough to make it worth it. Not something I could see giving as a gift either. Also, made in china doesn't thrill me.

        cute, but not cute enough to buy it. there's other more attractive bowls out there that are more useful.

        Cute but again seems to be more of a as a set price. I get the idea of it but unless you have really young children, the face isn't necessary to inspire me to eat. Too much being made in China lately....tsk tsk!

        Not too practical since wooden part won't withstand dishwasher.

        You should have a category that says that the item doesn't make sense or doesn't really serve a purpose....wouldn't make a good gift.... something like that....

        Pricey. Made in China. Does not look like it would store easily. Cute though. Not something I would buy or gift.

        Might be cute for kids, but not worth the money.

        I think the bowls are sweet. I would buy this product if it were $15. I have three kids and this would be way too much.

        Not all that attractive and echoing many other comments, made in China still doesn't cut it.

        Absolutely adorable! BUT, too expensive. I would definitely buy at $20.

        These are adorable with the faces on them. However the price should be for both sets. I won't buy just one set of wooden bowls for that much when I can get things like them for less than $5 a piece at the asian supply store.
