Shy Lovers Encouraged to Send Amorous Beans

I read this article today in The New Zealand Herald, and found it fascinating. Hope you do too.

Japanese too shy to say "I Love You" can buy a bean plant that sprouts to bear such a special message. Toymaker Takara will next month market gift cans, which hold soil & the small plant bearing a message that sprouts up in about 5 days, offering 6 different messages inscribed through a laser beam.

Another toymaker, Tomy, offers its own version of message beans set in a white egg made of calcium that "hatches" soon after it is put in water. The bean cracks open through the egg and shows encouraging messages.
