Elecom's Shippo Brushes (which apparently means "Tail Brush") are little, well... brushes, shaped like the corresponding animal's tail.
The "Shippo Brushes" are in fact cleaning devices for PCs. Thus, it's not for brushing terracota on those silky cheecks but you can guess how it works : turning the ring of the unit makes the animal's "tail" come out.
The animals are: a badger, squirrel, duck, whale, koala, and a sheep. Extreme sophistication: there are three types of brush: "wool brush type" for cleaning dust from the display (badger/squirrel), "nylon brush type" for cleaning the desk and keyboard area (duck/whale), and finally the "polyester cloth type" for cleaning grease off of stuff (koala/sheep).
Do I need to mention that it's another gorgeous Japanese creation?
