If there's two things in life that are scientifically proven to cheer people right up, it's luscious green plants and cute little animals. Sadly, not all of us have the space or time to nurture these uplifting organisms, which is why some inventive folks over in Japan have created the Chuppon Self Watering Animal Planters.
These lovable ceramic creatures carry straws in their mouths, miniature herb gardens on their backpacks and they perch comfortably on the edge of any glass or mug. When their plant is in need of a drink, the thirsty animal takes a nourishing swig through the straw, just the right amount too. There's no need for watering cans; just your own plant and animal that look after themselves.
There are four of these cultivational critters to choose from; each of them just waiting to brighten up office spaces and window sills the world over.
