Arrow Hacer los ojos chibiritas

Cuando alguien nos gusta mucho o algo apetitoso decimos que s enos hacen los ojos chibiritas, porque no dejamos de mirar fijamente, nos lo comemos con los ojos. Como se diría en inglés?
Hacer lo ojos chibiritas
comerselo con los ojos

¿Sabes la etimología de "chibirita"? Me parece que debe de derivar de la palabra japonesa chibi, pero si es así el animé debe de tener mucho más influencia en España que en Inglaterra.

También se puede decir "To feast your eyes on something/someone".

En México se dice que a alguien le brillan los ojos.

A Juan le brillaron los ojos cuando vio la caja llena de dinero.
