Kawaii Mini Japanese Sets: Kracie Burger Set

happy-beans

Happy Jellybean with her finished work.

While this is not quite related to travel, I wanted to post about my daughter’s love for the Japanese culture and anything related to it. She really loves anything kawaii and has been obsessing about those videos of tiny Japanese candies and food that you make.

I recently found the Kracie mini Japanese food sets in Auckland and had to get a bunch of them for my daughter for Christmas. They’re so cute! The box has no English translation so I had to watch some videos in YouTube and make a guessing game out of it. We’ve done several before this and they turned out great. BTW, they’re all edible and pretty easy to make.

This is what the box that it came in look like:

English Instructions for Kracie Burger Set: 

1. Remove the package from the box.

step-1

2. Do not rip the packaging as you would need these for the mat, to measure the cheese and to put together the entire set with the drinking cup, the burger flags and the holder for the fries. The set does not include toothpicks for the burger flags so you would need that, too. Other things you need to prepare to put together everything: a pair of scissors, tape and a microwave.

Don't rip the foil package from the box.

3. Cut the white container into different sections. The smallest one would be your “measuring cup” (we refer to it below as cup*), the one with the striped area is your mold for the fries, the area with the three circles is where your burger and buns go and the last is your mixing dish.

Cut out the little things you need to complete the set.

4. Get the big yellow pack, this is for the fries. Mix it with 2 cups of water in the mold with stripes and press down.

The "fries" is the big yellow packet.

5. Cut the big brown pack open, this is for the burger, add two cups of water to it and mix. You’d know it’s the right one because it kind of smells like a beef bullion cube. Place it in the center mold with the three circles.

The brown packet is your “burger patty”

6. Cut the big orange pack open, this is for your bread. Add two cups of water. It would smell like uncooked dough when you mix it with water. Divide this into two and press against the two side molds with the three circles. Use the line as a guide when pressing down your dough.

7. Microwave your burger, buns and fries for 30 seconds if you have a 600W microwave or for 40 seconds if you have a 500W microwave.

8. Take your small blue packet and mix it with 1 cup of water in the mixing bowl. This is your cheese and it will actually smell like cheese. The small blue mat that was part of the package is how you will measure it out. Spread it in the square portion and cut the cheese into two.

9. Mix the small red packet with 2 cups of water. This is your ketchup.

10. Now that the burgers and fries have cooled down, pop them out of the molds. Cut each bread piece into two. You can cut the burger into four pieces (or just two if you want it thicker). Cut your fries following the stripes made with the mold and place in the fries holder.

Once they've cooled down, pop out the buns and the burger patty from the mold.

Everything is actually edible (so make sure you use clean water and clean hands to make it if you plan to eat it) and they actually taste like they should.

Four-year-old Jellybean was able to do this with very little help from me. They have other Kracie sets and even a line called Poppin’ Cooking for little candy things you can do which kids will love. Let us know if you have any questions in the comments below!

      Thank you Mommy Mary Anne! I really wanted to share it because it created a unique bond between our kids and I really appreciate what my extended family has done for us. I’d love to share more stories about our life here, too and how our family is coping with the changes that come with migration.
