Chocobo is one of the most popular mascots in the game world and everyone should have known him by name and by sight. Wonderful as mounts during battles or world traveling, who would have thought that the baby chocobo would be this cute and this tiny?

Hina Chocobo or Choco-chick is a barely hatched. Sitting at around 12 or 17 cm, the little bird could sit and chirp happily on a child’s hand during a festive occasion.

Hold him and let him work his healing magic on you, or let him join in the fun during the festivals.

I love LEGO!!!

These were some of the LEGO displays in Toys R Us Hongkong at Ocean Terminal. The Star Wars Clone Trooper set-up is my favorite. They didn’t have a Batman display since all the sets were sold-out. :(

Maybe I should start opening my LEGO sets and start building my own displays. *sigh* I just need more display space at home. Hehehe.
