Japanese chefs and designers are the undisputed masters of the cute food industry, but their brilliant work has inspired chefs around the world to create beautiful and adorable meals like these that are hard not to play with before eating.

We can all pretend that these are just good ways to get kids to eat, but we all know that we would all melt with joy if presented with a bento lunchbox full of panda-shaped rice balls or a bowl of rabbit-shaped buns.

Have you ever made or eaten a cute meal? If so, share a picture with us below!

One could argue that "sushi" refers to the rice, not the topping; but I think this would more accurately be called Penguin Onigiri.
