Get a Rice Baby for that new Rice Daddy

Here's a thoughtful gift for that new rice daddy in your life.
From a second-hand description someone forwarded me, maybe from trendwatching, (the original site's in Japanese):
"Yosimiya is selling bags of rice printed with a newborn's photo, name and date of birth. The bags are shaped to resemble a swaddled baby. But the key feature is that the bags contain the baby's exact weight in rice. Holding the bag will therefore feel like holding the baby. Bags of rice with baby's photos printed on them aren't new in Japan, by Yosimiya is the first to make them to order, creating bags that match the baby's size and weight."
