Update: They are now in stock at Felissimo's international site.

It seems like not a week goes by without Japanese online retailer Felissimo making another adorable addition to their YOU+MORE! series (a play on the pronunciation of "humor" in Japanese), which features practical but often silly pet-themed items. In the past they've put out Shiba Inu doggy bags that perk their ears when you grab them, cute and casual cat yukata, and even cat paw socks that give you better footing indoors. Now, similar to their cat paw smartphone gloves, Felissimo is releasing these Shiba Inu-shaped smartphone pouches that let you feel like you're rubbing a dog's tummy as you browse your phone.

The smartphone pouches correspond with phones 4 cm in length, 7.5 cm in width, 1 cm in thickness (including case), and while some models may not fit, you may want to find a way to force your phone into these stuffed animal-like carrying cases. A strap connects to the area around the doggo's head, so you can attach it to a bag or backpack as you like. Think of it as a leash for your Shiba Inu.

One other feature is that the fluffy and curled tail typical of a Shiba Inu folds into a handle on the back of the pouch, making it very easy to carry by hand.

The Shiba Inu pouches are equipped with three different facial expressions in total, making them appear as if they are giving a different reaction each time to your belly rubs!




While Felissimo has the pouches available for domestic shipment in Japan, the pouches are also available from the international website. They are priced currently at 2,200 yen ($20.07 USD).
