Plastic Sushi Replicas

Hello All,

I am in New York and I am looking for sushi replicas like those seen in the windows of certain Japanese restaurants. I bought a bunch about 10 years ago and can't remember where I got them. Perhaps someone knows of the place or any other place. So does anyone know of places I can get these, perhaps around $10 a piece, in New York?

  1. Try Ebay. I just did, and found about 17 items. Better act fast, though, because I'm tempted to buy one of those fake California rolls for my sushi-addicted 9-year-old!

        Haha! Thanks Servorg. That is the place and Google helped me find it about an hour prior to your post. Thanks so much for your response nonetheless because I was on the verge of giving up searching.

      2. Just out of curiousity: What does one use sushi replicas for?

        1. re: hangrygirl

          Set up a permanent display of available sushi types
          Use in photos to explain/show sushi types
          Magazine articles
          Food blogs

          Using the fake sushi is much cheaper than making up each type for these purposes.

          Also some people are collectors

            I'm a collector! I have sushi lollipops, candles, glass beads, pens, oven timers, racecars, magnets, keychains, etc!

        2. Well, if you can't find the plastic ones, you could always try the famous Twinkie Sushi!
