Koji Yano of 83Design‘s latest creation is KEAT, an awesome little character who only shows its true emotions when a key is inserted into its mouth. The key-holder, which is made from rubber, can go on a wall, a refrigerator or pretty much anywhere.

KEAT will go on sale across Japan beginning mid-November.
