The Sushi Roll Factory toy combines an automatic sushi machine and a sushi carousel in one.

Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy Arts Corporation has announced a fun and practical new toy that is sure to please sushi lovers young and old.

The クルクルのりまき工場 kuru kuru norimaki fakutorī, literally “round and round nori (sushi) roll factory”, is an all-in-one food prep toy that lets you make nori rolls while “driving” a sushi charger along a circular railway track. You can also use the track as a sushi carousel that delivers up to two completed rolls of nori.

The all-in-one toy will go on sale in October at a suggested retail price of 6,578 yen (tax included).

The Kuru Kuru Norimaki factory is equipped with an “automatic nori rolling mechanism” and, as the name suggests, allows children (or children at heart) to enjoy the process of making sushi step by step. step, like in a factory.

Of course, the toy doesn’t come with food, so you’ll need to provide the sushi rice (preferably Japanese rice mixed with sushi vinegar), strips of nori, and any sushi toppings you want to put on. on the rice.

The first thing to do is to shape the sushi rice with a specialized tool.

Once you load your sushi rice onto the sushi loader and send it off, the first stop is the Nori Rolling Gate which automatically rolls the nori onto the rice.


Then the next step is the topping dropper, which automatically places the toppings on the rice.


When the sushi is finished, it will be dropped in front of the Sushi Geta Slider.


You can fold down the legs to stand it up and serve your sushi…


…or fold the wheels to turn it into a freight car. When you connect it to the Sushi Loader, the railway track you just used as a “nori roll production line” turns into a sushi carousel.


This product won the “Japan Toy Award 2022” in the category “Communication Toys Category”
