This Tiny Toy Canteen Is So Realistic It Will Make You Hungry
Miniature food is so cute!
(SPOT.ph) Miniature art is often fun to look at. Imagine having a mini Eiffel Tower the size of your pinky finger (or even smaller), a portrait that's as big as your fingerprint, or sculptures that can stand on your fingernail. According to Insider, there are over 1.3 million results when you type in miniature food and more than 130,000 people have used the #MiniatureFood hashtag on Instagram—that they even made a very meta "How Tiny Food Videos Are Made" video clip. Here in the Philippines, one Virginia Pozon focuses on making miniature art inspired by Filipino dishes.
She started to dabble in creating miniature food in December 2017. "I wanted to give handmade gifts and personalized gifts to friends one Christmas so I made tiny items. They were so impressed that they started requesting [miniature art of] Pinoy dishes," she tells SPOT.ph in an interview about her collection. Since then, she has been making tiny rice, tiny danggit, tiny bangus, tiny longganisa—you name it!
"It's so cute and you can use them to make playtime more fun. They can be used as accessories for toys and action figures and that, for me, gives them life," she adds about her collection, which she calls Toy Canteen. All items are on sale for P100 a piece at Backstreet Toys in Greenhills, San Juan.
