If you ever stroll into Japanese bookstore and oddity shop Village Vanguard you may find yourself drawn to the super realistic cat and dog head cushions on display, but there may be a new challenger for ridiculously cute animal cushions--ones that you can exercise with! Panda, bears, cat, rabbit and penguin balance balls are here to be your new favorite chair or cuddle buddy.

The "Balance Pet" series turns pandas, bears, cats, rabbits , and penguins into bouncy and cuddly companions in a lineup of balance balls. The soft elastic balls (with a furry exterior!) can be used to fix your posture, exercise, or simply be a fat bubbly animal pal in your room.

They are available in Japan from Village Vanguard's online store for 3,278 yen, but can also be purchased on Amazon.
