Following Wikipedia Mameshiba (豆しば) is a Japanese merchandise franchise created by copywriter and Korean Japanese national Kim Sukwon. The Mameshiba are different varieties of beans that have dog-like faces and tell trivia. Their name derives from a series of puns. The Japanese word for “bean” is mame (豆), a toy version of the Shiba Inu is a mameshiba(豆柴), and the Japanese word for “trivia” is mamechishiki (豆知識, literally “beans of knowledge”).

Let me show you some of Mameshibas!!
