This was fun to watch! The street vendor makes it look so easy. I know the treat was for the little boy but the mother seems as mesmerized by it as he does!

That's incredible. I had no idea it would lift off the marble like that. So it's a sweet treat for the little boy? It seems a shame to eat it.

I found another video of a Chinese street vendor that makes "blown" sugar animals. I can't help but think how unsanitary this is even though it's cool as hell.

They used to make them all the time when we were kids, down in Little Tokyo. It was a fantastic to watch the being made, so cool.
