All About Maryoku Yummy

pronounced Mary-ō-koo Yum-ē

Ever wonder where wishes go until they come true? Maryoku Yummy answers that very question! Maryoku Yummy is about the whimsical world of the Yummy -- resident Wish-sitters of a magical place called Nozomu -- where children's Wishes go to be cared for and nurtured until they are granted!

Backstory

When a child makes a wish, it comes to life and travels to the land of Nozomu. There, every Wish is cared for and given plenty of love and attention by the Yummy Wish sitters. Wishes come in many different shapes and sizes, and with all sorts of personalities. Since caring for Wishes is a full time job, each individual Wish needs a caretaker, or Wish-sitter, to nurture it and teach it life lessons. In many ways, Wishes are similar to children---each one is special and unique. Some need to learn a lesson before they can be granted; others might flourish with hugs. But regardless of the wish, there's no mistaking when one is truly ready to be granted: it happily shimmers and glows and begins to float.
