As you may know, Spirited Away is one of my favorite films.  I was surprised to find that these little guys had made their way into one of my Christmas presents, containing a replacement cookbook.  Or, maybe it was the original cookbook that had gone missing...and they were returning it!!

Here's a scene from the film:

They like to eat the little stars that you use to decorate cakes.  Fortunately I had some on hand!
