A great brand name for bento box stuff is "Paku-paku," which is the Japanese onomatopoeia to express "enthusiastically eating," sorta chewing like a goldfish. I haven't checked for any online supply sources. One of my Asian stores had these tiny soy sauce containers topped with the head of a hello kitty character. It looked like a miniature pez candy dispenser. Its jaw was a hinged cap that you open to pour out its screwed-on clear glass contents. Cracked me up!

I've been using a 1-ounce cookie scoop to make my onigiri. Perfect and it's a tool I already know how to use. I did get some nori punches so I can make Hello Kitty onigiri. I have plenty of Hello Kitty things and other Deco-Bento items. The drawer I keep the Bento things in looks like a 4 year old's toy box.
