January 11th, 2010

My friend Hammie posted pictures of some of the bears who live with him. I thought that I should post something in reply, but I didn’t know what. It dawned on me that I do live with some hamsters, although they aren’t in my immediate hug. They are from the Japanese TV show Hamtaro! Mom bought these little guys—and one girl—a long time ago. She doesn’t remember much about the show itself—the hamsters had their names on the tags. They are very little, probably only three or four inches high—a bit smaller then Caleb. She used to work for a place that sold a lot of anime and anime related things, including plush! She remembers liking the TV show, but mostly liking the way that they looked.  After a little research, it turns out that it was very popular here in the United States in 2002 and 2003, which would have been smack in the middle of her time there.

I hope these hamsters are interesting to see! Mom and I were happy to show them off! We were very glad when we remembered that they lived here!

  1. Thanks for showing the hamsters and telling us about them! G. says she heard of them (of her kids at school, she's a teacher)but never saw them before. I'm very happy that you liked my bearpost! I'm the only hamster in the house (beside the cardboard one I made this weekend, but that one doesn't know how to talk...)

  2. We have some Hamtaro here too! The daughter of a frend loved them and so we got to know them and bought some too.
