Today the Department of Impossible Cuteness invites you to play another round of “Eat it or keep it as a pet?” RocketNews24 assembled an overwhelmingly kawaii collection of hard-boiled eggs that’ve been altered and decorated to turn them into all sorts of cute bento creatures, from chickens, bunnies, cows and pandas to Pikachu and a wee baby seal.
Could you conquer the debilitating cuteness of these enhanced eggs in order to enjoy them as lunch?

Today, thanks to Romanian photographer Remus Tiplea, we learned that Damselflies enjoy playing peekaboo, or at least they do in his backyard in Negreşti-Oaş, Romania. We had no idea that these delicate insects are also adorably shy.

"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”
Because who doesn’t love anthropomorphic food and animal friends? Our friend and awesome artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here) just opened a solo exhibition of new paintings, entitled Happy As Kings, at Gallery Nucleus. The show runs through September 21, 2014.
Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, “Happy Thought”, the artist introduces us to a group of gleeful royals that find happiness in the ordinary yet wonderful things in life.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it down in person, click here to view the exhibition online and even purchase originals and prints.

Remember those outrageously cute Banana Bird capsule toys we posted about a couple week ago? Meet their kawaii canine counterparts: Bread Dogs. Bandai created this adorable new series of Gashapon toys, which is actually their fifth series of Doggy Bread figures to date. (Click here to view them all)
This new Anicolla series features six different, but equally darling dogs who’ve found themselves wearing six different sorts of bread. There’s the Anpug (a pug inside a sweet bean bun), the Pomcutlet Sandwich (a pomeranian who’s taken the place of a katsu pork cutlet), a toy poodle pancake, corgi hot dog, shih tzu sandwich and, last but not least, the Chihuassant (an amazing Chihuahua-croissant hybrid). Despite being less than two inches long, each figure is impressively detailed and, yes, ridiculously cute.
Don’t worry if you haven’t got any capsule toy machines nearby. Right now you can find these little cuties on Ebay.
Meet Kiba The Cosplaying Corgi! Since cosplay is already awesome, our scientific calculations have determined that this adorable cosplaying Pembroke Welsh Corgi is Super Awesome. When Kiba lives in Peoria, AZ-based and when he isn’t charming fellow cosplayers, he likes to play, bark and work as a therapy dog.

In Japan you can enjoy your favorite anime, cartoon and video game characters as more than simply visual entertainment. They’re also available as sweet treats. These kawaii confections are a form of wagashi (和菓子) called nerikiri (練り切り). Made from white bean paste and rice-based dough, nerikiri are often tinted and molded similar to how marzipan is prepared in Western desserts.

You can also try your hand at making your very own nerikiri. Click here for the recipe.
First came the delightful Dirds (Dog-birds), followed by the marvelous Meowls (Cat-owls), today the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids introduces us to another spectacularly surreal creature: Bears with Beaks.
From the Angry Eagoala and Panda Bearrot to the Sad Beargle and the Hungy Pelibear, these beaky bears are the product of the collective imagination and photoshop skills of a two-year-old subreddit called… wait for it… BearsWithBeaks. Thanksgiving just got a whole lot more interesting now that we know about the Wild Bearky.
Head over to BearsWithBeaks for many more examples of this hilarious, yet strangely touching hybrid species. Just don’t leave your fingers where they can nip them.
Oh Japan, you’ve done it again. Perhaps the only thing better than eating yummy slices of toast is eating toast shaped like an adorable teddy bear that cheerfully sits up to greet you right before you devour it.
Called the Ernest Bread Pop Up!, this delightful product is the work of Japanese company Tokyu Hands. It even comes with three interchangable facial expressions so you can customize your scrummy toast bear before you send him to your belly.
Check out these awesomely cute and sleepy pieces of topiary in the Jardin des Plantes de Nantes, a botanical garden located in Nantes, France. Created by French artist and children’s book author Claude Ponti, they’re part of the “Journey to Nantes" (Le Voyage à Nantes) art festival. These delightful topiary sculptures are just one stop on the festival’s 10-mile-long trail of public artwork on display throughout Nantes.
