A great way for kids to enjoy cool somen noodles in the summer, this Cho-hiehie North Pole Nagashi Somen Noodle Fountain by Takara Tomy is inspired by "flowing somen" (nagashi somen) cuisine, where the noodles literally shoot down bamboo chutes with ice for you to catch. This time it's an iceberg fountain that you can make yourself and keep the noodles super cool (cho hiehie)!
The set takes water from the base at the bottom and shoots it out of the top, creating a fountain effect and keeping the somen noodles spinning. And it's so simple, even kids can set it all up!
You can also add to the fun by making cute ice cubes in the shapes of penguins (okay, we know they are from the south pole but anyway!), polar bears, icebergs and so on.
