Hotel Toys: Going Too Far?
Here at HotelChatter, we try to indulge your inner hotel geek (and ours) on the reg. Which is why we'd like to share with you on this beautiful Monday morning photos of a miniature hotel buffet set we purchased over the weekend.
Made by Japanese company Re-Ment (which also is responsible for the similar Puchi collections), the set is one of eight "Hotel Remental Tokyo" collectibles—each one a different take on a luxury five-star hotel buffet spread. Just like the wildly popular Kid Robot toy series, each box is labeled the same, so you never know what you're going to get until you open the package. Kind of like some other hotels we've written about!
The tiny red box depicts eight other choices (roast beef being sliced, hot soup with a ladle, fresh fruit platter, etc), though we ended up with number one—a bizarre spread of caviar cracker things and some asparagus salmon roll-ups. If you have any better insight into what these actually are, do advise.
These remind us slightly of the 3-D mini room models by Yotel, though we find our toy admittedly less complicated.
