Temarizushi Teamwork!

Recently, we held a delicious team building event, which saw the team at modeS4u working to create Temarizushi (Japanese rice balls) masterpieces! Divided into small groups, each group was tasked with creating and decorating 15 rice balls in all sorts of beautiful and funny ways with yummy ingredients such as seaweed, salmon, snapper and more, within 30 minutes. Leading this activity was Ms. Yuki of Yuki’s Table; she alongside head of modeS4U, Sandra, judged the many colorful designs. They ultimately decided upon the winning group, whose creations included rice balls with a cat face, vampire face and many other designs. After the event, everyone was then able to eat their scrumptious creations so really, we were all winners! Does this post make you hungry? Check out some fun rice bento accessories if you’d like to try making your own food masterpiece!

Eat with Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood can be your new dining partner. Because she will be on all your Bento tableware. We got some new items from the super kawaii Otogicco Little Red Riding Hood series and totally adore them. There are Bento Boxes, chopsticks, a plastic mug and a lunch bag for your bento box. There even is a complete tea set with the cute fairy tale character. We hope you like the new products from Decole.

And by the way, you can also travel with Little Red Riding Hood. The cute bright red passport case is a wonderful goodie to protect your passport but also to give it a unique look. We’re in love!

Tons of new San-X stuff

We have the cutest new stuff from San-X in our store. In our latest delivery from Japan we really got a wonderful mixture of items. So check out our new products on our website. Some things we want to mention here more detailed, because they are especially cute.

Like the adorable squeezable Mamegoma seal charms for cellphones or bagpacks. We got them in different colours, they are super soft and filled with polystyrene balls, so you can squeeze the hell out of them. Basically these cute little balls are even good for your health, they train your hand muscles, are good for stress relief and make you smile.

Now we also carry items from the latest Rilakkuma Happy Holiday Picnic collection, for example this big Rilakkuma plush toy. The cute summer hat and the funny shoes are typical for the collection. The look is so gorgeous, don’t you think?

If you like cats, you’ll be happy to hear that we got a couple of new Kutusita Nyanko items as well. We absolutely adore the funny screen cleaner cat paws. You can put them on your finger and clean the display of your mobile phone, the screen of your laptop or TV.

Brand new and incredibly adorable: The Rilakkuma Bento accessories. There are a couple of cute sauce or spice containers, just take a look at those wonderful little bottles with bear caps.

And just to let you know, we will still be adding more products in the next couple of days, especially stationery such as memeo pads, pens and stickers.
