The Museum has a longstanding history of embracing Japanese design and culture, and this ice shaver has been a pop icon since the mid 1970s. The cheerful, playful design sparks nostalgia as well as an appreciation of the simple pleasures.
Snow cones served with a smile: This bright and friendly bear, a pop culture favorite in Japan since 1976, serves up shaved ice with an internal industrial-strength grinder. Just fill the inner cup with water or fruit juice and freeze or use your own ice cubes. Watch the eyes move as you fill your bowl with shaved ice.
