Tomy Flip Flap Plant


Just what you need, a plastic plant. That's what my travel companion muttered when he saw me duck into a toy store to check out a Tomy Flip Flap as he was trying to find Fisherman, a famed homemade fishball restaurant on Sai Yee St. at the corner of Fife St. in Hong Kong.

As I've previously mentioned, I've got a cubicle mate with black thumbs and a solar powered plant is just the remedy. Besides, U.S. Customs agents would toss any non-native plant seeds I tried to bring into the country. The Flip Flap has three gentle movements activated by both sound and light. I got this one for $7.10 USD but I've seen them at the HK airport marked up to $25 USD and on third-party sites for up to $50 USD. Shop around.

Bonus! Fisherman's alluring fishball boat outside the restaurant:
