When they were first launched on the market, Moshi pillows came in several shapes and colors only, whereas now you can actually match them to any model of furniture and even to curtains. The most common decorative shapes are triangular, oval, square and round but there are some Moshi pillows that are designed in the most curious of ways. Giant red lips, diamonds, cartoon characters, hearts, boxing gloves and so on are but a few of the varied designs used for Moshi pillows. Like in many other domains, variety has no limits. Have a look over some catalogs or take a tour of a shop and you'll see how many choices you've got.
Kids and adolescents are simply crazy about Moshi pillows, not only can they get to decorate their private space with great cartoon characters, but they can also relate to their hobbies in the most artistically pleasant way. Here, we particularly refer to the Moshi pillows shaped like basketballs, soccer balls or boxing gloves. The compact size of such decorative items makes them ideal for traveling too; the kids are the happiest when they can actually take a “virtual” companion with them. Having the Moshi pillows in the car would be like Batman traveling with them: such items keep the children occupied and happy during a trip.
Moshi pillows can be used everywhere in the house regardless of the functionality of each room: from kitchen to bedroom, they make great decorative items. Studies showed that holding a Moshi pillow allows the body to relax eliminating negative energies such as stress; this effect is the result of the soft muscle massage that is triggered by the bead arrangement and rearrangement. All in all, Moshi pillows are both beautiful and functional, occupying a top place in the popularity charts when it comes to defining favorite decorative items.

Strictly speaking though, there should be no distinction between anime and cartoon. Anime is a term used by the Japanese to refer to , from their own country and from others as well. Somehow, though, the world started using the term anime in reference to Japanese cartoons exclusively. Japanese animation was once called japanimation, but this term was aptly discarded when the term ‘Anime’ was put into use.
Some say that they see absolutely no difference between the two, even going so far as to classify both cartoons and anime as ‘childish’ because of the nature of how they are presented, much to the woe of anime fans. Technically, there’s no official difference and they are somewhat correct. But you only have to watch a single episode of any anime series and you’ll see that anime is far more than your usual slapstick comedy man-tripping-on-a-banana-peal early morning cartoons. There is a real and profound difference between the two besides their spellings: Anime is so much more than ‘just a cartoon’.
Cartoons usually have a simple and defined plot. And they’re usually about the good guys fighting the bad guys. Cartoons rarely go beyond that old cliché. Most Anime series, on the other hand, are also about the same good vs. evil but the plots are rarely simple and rarely predictable. You’ll find an element of politics, religion, humanity, and a score of several other abstract concepts within an anime. Whereas cartoons are just about ‘evil’ cats chasing ‘innocent’ mice or a hero defending himself and others from a very evil bully. Anime can blur the lines between good and evil so much that you’ll be left wondering which side is really right. Look at the plot of Gundam, there aren’t any good guys or bad guys. They’re both fighting for a cause – a worthy one, and both sides are prepared to do good and evil to achieve their goals. Look at the Wave Country arc of Naruto which is now at Naruto Shippuden. Zabuza, evil as he was, had evoked more sympathetic tears than any of the typical Disney antagonists. There are, however, few exceptions to the ‘cartoons are simple’ rule. There are cartoon series that are far advanced like X-men.
In terms of humor, anime goes beyond the slapstick comedy that cartoons offer. There won’t be any corny joke about the chicken crossing the road with anime. There won’t even be the quintessential banana peal. Anime humor is deep and witty. However, it is to be noted that cartoons are mostly for kids. Anime can be for an adult audience; it mostly is, actually. There are even times when anime plots are hardly suited for children.
In cartoons, there’s a protagonist, an antagonist, and a damsel in distress. Their roles are well-defined and clear and the characters always act according to their roles. In anime, however, the damsel in distress may very well become the antagonist, leaving the protagonist in distress. There’s no knowing what to expect in anime. Anime characters, a lot of times, are developed overtime through trials and growth, while cartoon characters remain the same from when the show started. (Of course, there are exceptions such as Spiderman.) Since there’s an ongoing plot, Anime characters actually grow up and may even produce the next generation for the series. Anime fans tend to get into the characters a lot deeper because of the characters’ depth and charm. Consider Naruto; viewers see him growing up from an infant to a young powerful ninja, the way he relates to people, the way he learns new techniques, and the way he evolves visually. That is one of the chief reasons for popularities of anime over plain cartoons.

Children often become attached to a Moshi pillow, as to them, it is more than a simple practical or decorative item: this is actually the representative of a different world, as if taken out from the cartoon or the wild. Toy shops as well as interior decoration stores sell this type of cushions, however, sometimes it is not a good idea to take your child with you when shopping for a Moshi pillow. It is more than likely that he or she will find it difficult to decide what to choose: so you may be very well forced to actually purchase more than you've initially intended.
A Moshi pillow will suit the purposes and the taste of almost anyone owing to their incredible variety: hundreds of colors, shapes and textures make a rich rainbow puzzle to choose from. The main manufacturing specificity of a Moshi pillow comes from the use of special beads in the stuffing; these beads are actually responsible for the mushy feeling you get when holding or squeezing these decorative items. The beads in the interior are no larger than 0.3 or 0.5 millimeters, and this micro-size creates the entire pleasant-touch effect associated with the pillows.
The best casing for a Moshi pillow is made of some stretchable material, such as lycra or spandex; these textures increase the softness and the durability of the items, particularly since they are very likely to be used by children. Using such casings will definitely lower the cleaning problems, as you can easily take them off and wash them. However, it is definitely a good idea to read well the supplier's instructions concerning the cleaning specificity of a Moshi pillow or you may directly inquire at the store when you buy the items.
