Whack-a-Mole Bento

I'm sure everyone knows the arcade game, Whack-a-Mole. I'm not sure whether it's still popular now, but I still see it around in arcades, so I guess it probably still is. My boys loved this game when they were little, we always played together. We used to cheat by assigning each of us a couple of holes to guard, and we'll use our hands to force them back into their holes, lol. -_-

Here's my Whack-a-mole bento. Moles were made from sausages, cheese and nori. I added hats and fruits picks on their heads for extra cuteness.

The mallet is just rice, coloured using some dark soya sauce, with nori for details.

Lastly, I added some pork floss around the moles. For those of you who are not familiar with pork floss, it's actually dried meat with a fluffy texture, usually use as a topping for tofu, congee, buns, pastries, etc. It's yummy as a snack too.
