Silence the Noise with Tiny Doggie Earplugs

Shopping Health Pets Animals

Created by Mao Yamamoto, a designer from Hokkaido, these adorable earplugs are called d+ Mimi Pet and are intended to help you focus while studying or working—though we can’t help wondering if you’ll end up even more distracted when everyone stops to ask where you got them.

It’s not like a dachshund is really going to scare them away either…

The earplugs come in a range of colors, so you can easily accessorize to match your outfit for the day—though you probably won’t want to buy too many of these seeing as how one set costs ¥1,296 (US$11.30)! Fortunately, they're also reusable and easy to clean!

Though the earplugs are made of silicon, they aren’t meant for use in the water, so you’ll have to find something else if you just want to keep your ears dry while swimming. On the other hand, they are very cute, so if nothing else, your ears will be totally adorable wherever you might be trying to focus!

You can purchase +d Mimi Pet earplugs on Koncent’s website, though they don’t currently offer overseas shipping. If you’re not in Japan, you may be able to find a store in your country that has them, or you can try a reshipping service.
