2. Frozen 'Tsum Tsum' Bento

Disney Tsum Tsum, or Disney Stack-Stack, started out as a Line game similar to Dr. Mario: line up three of the same character and they'll disappear. The girls in this pudgy faced Frozen crew are made from rice mixed with ketchup. Elsa and Anna use white and brown egg sheet for their hair, respectively. Olaf's teeth are made from white egg sheet, and his nose—naturally—is a carrot slice. Cut seaweed makes up their eyes and eyebrows.
