Have you seen Maru, the Japanese Internet Sensation? The boys are totally in love with these videos and can watch them over and over again, shrieking at top volume every time Maru gets into/out of a box.

Example:

I’ll be the first to admit a couple of small children attacking some cardboard is not quite as unique as a pudgy box-obsessed Scottish Fold, but they’re losing their minds over this video. Now they are just like Maru.

Cuuuute – but you need to get the boys all over the video where Maru dives into the open-ended soda container and slides his pudgy body across the floor. THAT would be a video to see (of the boys!)

Apparently I have the same sense of humor as your little boys. I was laughing at Maru, and really laughing when your boys tried to copy Maru.

I will be showing both videos to my kids in the morning, and giving them a box simply so I can get some work done for 30 minutes!

Maru is hilarious. Probably the most famous cat in the world.

These are pretty good too.

And when I think of all the money I’ve spent on toys when all I needed to give them was a box!
Your boys are hysterical!

I watched by myself and thought, ha! Cute!

Then I showed it to a two-year-old and… huh. SHE COULDN’T BREATHE, SHE WAS LAUGHING SO HARD.

I love the “nothing can go wrong with that” comment. Seems like I say that alot, too – fully expecting the have to break out the bandaids at any moment.

First, that is the fattest, smooshiest cat ever, he doesn’t even look real. Adorable. Second, our 2 1/2 year old son has an obsession with cats on par with your son’s horse thing. But somehow we’ve never run across Maru. You just got me like, infinity brownie points!

My 3 1/2 year old has taken to having us fold her up inside of my suitcase and rolling her around. When we’re not doing that, she likes to just sit and play in it, strapping herself in, putting a pillow in it and watching movies, etc. Yay for cheap thrills!

Adorable! I love how helpful Riley is, bringing the box closer to the couch for Dylan. What a good big brother.

“What do you have to say for yourself?” “Mowww.” Hahaha. I wish I had a kid to watch Maru with! I may or may not have tried to make my puppy watch the video.

Loved watching Dylan trying so hard to jump into the box… he just needs a little distance! My big ol’kitty Daisy LOVES watching all of Maru’s videos!

I am strangely obsessed with pet videos on YouTube. I can’t stop watching the Otto vs Egon vids from Zack Scott. So thanks for some new material for my madness!

I just passed a Maru video onto my sister. Ever since seeing Maru, I’m very disappointed with my cat, who is just interested in eating and getting cuddled. Jerk.

My boy is FAR more entertained by the video of your boys than he is by the cat. He’s freaking QUOTING your children, Sundry.

I’ve been to your website at least ten times to find this video (you know, cause going right to YouTube is too hard). My 3 1/2 year old and 20 month old boys are having the same reaction that your boys are having. My boys think this is hysterical and it’s been buying me some much needed time to get stuff done.

Maru In Love is a cute video, kids like that one as well!
