Manekinekoduck kawaii exercise for kids

8 Aug

Kids love something kawaii. How cute is it that the baby girl asks her mom to sing this Japanese song for her.
As explained in the post some time ago, Aflac Japan has been going with kawaii strategy. They always keep creating new Manekinekoduck songs that grab our heart. (We know that because their commercials are always on TV.) The Japanese, regardless of kids or adults, just love something kawaii! I am amazed how well they have been doing business in Japan. They know us that we love something kawaii. They have melted our heart before they actually explain about their products.

So here it is, the Manekinekoduck kawaii exercise song for kids.

“manekinekoduck kodomo taisou”

Followings are lyrics in Romaji so you can sing it in Japanese without reading Japanese. πŸ˜‰

Neko mo ahiru mo minna isshoni sa~ manekinekoduck kodomo taisou!

Karada wo ugokasou kokoro wo ugokasou sa~ manekinekoduck kodomo taisou!

Ichi ni san! Ni ni san! San ni san! Yon ni san! Ran ran ran ran!

Neko mo ahiru mo minna isshoni sa~ manekinekoduck kodomo taisou!

Karada wo ugokasou kokoro wo ugokasou sa~ manekinekoduck kodomo taisou!

Meaning: A cat and a duck, and everyone else, let’s exercise all together! Move your body, move your mind, 1, 2, 3. 2, 2, 3 (the 2nd time around). 3, 2, 3 (the 3rd time around). 4, 2, 3 (the 4th time around) …

This post is especially dedicated to my friend Cath and her lovely daughter! πŸ˜‰
Also if you (any of the readers) have any request that you want me to post the lyrics of specific songs from Youtube, please feel free to contact me so I can write a post on that just like this!

    Cute! If only they'd show there in the USA, I'd totally buy from Aflac! ;D

      Haha ^ ^ I suppose the US Aflac wouldn't use this to attract adults. I really admire their (Aflac Japan) strategy based on the cultural difference!

    This is very kawaii. I love childrens videos because the words are simple and I can listen and learnI Japanese. Did you see the snake exercising at the bottom of the video? I can just imagine the artists trying to figure out how a snake would exercise. This was fun. Thanks

      Oh the snake, haha… ^ ^; This video is so peaceful I feel kind of a relief from work. Man, Alfac is totally inside my heart now. ^__^;

      Haha, softbank commercials are also nice~. Did you know softbank is one of the major mobile phone service companies in Japan? ^ ^ If we want to use iphone, we have to be a member of softbank because they have contract with Apple.

    Kirin !! It's so funny that you should post about this.

    Our son is 12 months old and he adores japanese TV programs for young children, and especially songs, nursery rhymes, etc.
    Because of this we spend a lot of time looking for new videos on youtube and a couple of days ago, we found the AFLAC commercials : what a hit !! He watches them non-stop, he's mezmerized by the manekineko duck.

    The first one we found was "Ahiru no warutsu", he loved it so much that we looked for other videos of the same series and found kodomo taisou. This is so cute ! He watches it standing in front of the TV, clapping his tiny hads together…

    I have to thank you because – living in France – I didn't have the slightest idea what AFLAC and these commercials were all about. Thanks to you it's clearer now.

    May I ask you, if you have time, to write a note about japanese songs for children someday ? Like, famous songs, the ones that every child in Japan knows and loves… Our baby listen to japanese nursery rhymes all day and he loves it, I would love to hear about new ones !

    Cheers !

    Laurie from France

      HOw cute your baby is…I can imagine that. ^ ^
      And thank you for your specific request. For me it's easier to ask my readers what they want me to write about. Of course I cannot cover everything, but I took a note about "Japanese songs for children" possibly for future blog post. πŸ˜€
