"Kumamon, a cartoon bear created to promote tourism in an overlooked
part of Japan, has become a billion-dollar phenomenon. Now, a new
academic field is trying to pinpoint what makes things cute – and why we
can’t resist them"

A really excellent article on cuteness.  Via Lin Clas.

Share and enjoy,
