Otters are endearing little creatures who have the ability to melt even the coldest of hearts.
And here’s a fun fact: Otters apparently store rocks and food in the loose skin under their armpits, according to JoJo Maman Bebe.
If you’ve been to Night Safari, you would have seen the Otter show whereby the intelligent animal steals the hearts of everyone. It is trained to sort out recyclables and drop each item off at the respective recycling bins.
Have a look at the show if you haven’t:
If Otters have the power to make your heart skip a beat, you’re in for some good news.
The most realistic Otter products you never knew you needed
You can now get uber-realistic otter pencil cases from a Japanese store called Felissimo.
The sleeping and awake Otter product have the following dimensions: length 44cm, width 19cm, and height 10cm, as well as length 40cm, width 15cm and height 13cm respectively.
The best part?
Crazy Attention To Details
Look at the close up of the products. It’s like Huawei P30 50x zoom, so sharp even when you zoom in up close and dirty.
The items are made with polyurethane blend fabric akin to an otter’s fur and are completed with whiskers and toes.
I won’t be surprised if these pencil cases would spring to life when you’re sleeping #justsaying
Apart from its cute appearance bound to make fans go aww, the pencil cases can be used as a wrist rest for those constantly on the computer.
If that’s not good enough reason to convince you to purchase them, the otter pencil cases come in handy as a prop for your Instagram shots too!
That, or you can stuff it with cotton and turn it into a plushy.
If you do get the awake version of the Otter pencil case, please do me a favour and see if the real otters in Singapore react to it.
I’m kidding – maybe not, because you might be attacked by their gang.
Other Animal Products
Apart from Otter products, Felissimo sells other animal-related products as well. Some of which are just as realistic i.e. cat pencil case.
I’m 100% sure my boss would buy that because he loves cats as much as he loves Netflix, and then do a food review of it on #FastFoodFriday (???)

Now, this isn’t the first time Otters have made headlines.
Otters are most commonly spotted at Marina Bay, near The Float. They even rose to fame for representing different clans when they fought for territory – Bishan against Marina.
To keep up with Otters on our shore, fans can join the OtterWatch Facebook page where Otter-enthusiasts constantly share their sightings and photos of the mammals.
If you’re looking for other everything Otter, In Otter News is your new best friend. Not to be underestimated, the site consolidates Otter products from various sources to make your life a whole lot easier.
Though most of their products are not as lifelike, they do have Otter-themed stationery, clothes and gifts such as soap and pins.
My personal favourite has got to be the Otter tape dispenser. How otter-able is that?!
