Grass-head dolls: a new business trend

Creativity is crucial for everyday life, especially for business since it’s the key to success as well as stress relief.

Non Phanna, a sales clerk at Sorya supermarket, said she enjoys selling a variety of creative products. She currently sells magic and prank items like shock guns, trick gum, crystal balls and horrifying masks. But she has noticed her best-selling item is the grass-head doll.

She added that she has been having the grass-head dolls imported from Hong Kong for nearly a year and they continue to be a hit.

According to Phanna, this doll contains Hong Kong grass seeds on the top that need to be put into water for about five hours. Then, you take it out and pour water on it just like normal grass and in five weeks, it’ll grow into a lush plant.

When asked about the price, Phanna said, “This doll costs $1.50 to $2.50 and can be exchanged if the grass doesn’t grow.”
