These hot little buns are actually as sweet as they are cute. Newly available at Tokyo Disney and patterned off of the aliens from Pixar's Toy Story, these green-colored sweet buns are filled with a delicious mixture of custard, strawberry, and chocolate cream. The little green manju were rolled out at the Tokyo Disney Sea to celebrate the launch of a new Toy Story Mania! ride and could well be the best (or at least the most edible...) thing to come out of the Toy Story Franchise.

Next up are a set of Hatsune Miku's hot, savory buns. Or rather: a set of hot, savory Hatsune Miku buns. The steamed 'Mikuman' buns are being rolled out at the Japanese convenience store FamilyMart as part of no specific marketing tie-in and are filled with tasty pork and other traditional bun-ly goodness. Added bonus: they will add +15 points to your kawaii factor for 90 minutes after they are eaten. (source)
FamilyMart is the same convenience store responsible for the Dragon Quest-themed slime buns that rolled out earlier this year.
Finally, a set of cute little buns that you'd don't have to travel to Japan for!* These traditional Chinese pau were created by The HomeMaker who was also kind enough to provide a recipe along with the adorable pictures. If you're feeling adventurous - and have access to a rice steamer - put your imagination to work and play with some buns of your own this weekend!
