New characters in our shop: Chocopa squirrel Nuts

Time to introduce a cute new character in our shop. If you like the funny Chocopa bear who turns into a brown chocolate bear when eating chocolate, you might have noticed that lately he is accompanied by a little friend, an orange squirrel named Nuts. The cute rodent wears brown glasses and looks very smart. He loves to sit on Chocopa’s head and often takes photos of him.

You can find the cute squirrel on many Chocopa products in our shop, but we also have some plush toys just with the cute fella.

Sunshine City in Tokyo Part 6: kawaii accessories

This is the last part of our big Sunshine City series. In the last week we’ve shown you lots and lots of pictures from different shops in Tokyo’s huge “city within the city”. So what’s left to show today? Basically everything that didn’t fit into any of our other posts. And that is mainly general shop impressions or very kawaii accessories. It is amazing to see how crowded those shops are. They are filled with cuteness on every centimeter.

Furry, soft and cute: new Rilakkuma and Kutusita Nyanko stuff

This is just the tip of the iceberg, but what a furry one! We started adding all the new San-X products from our last delivery to our shop and already purr in excitement. There will be so many things to come, but for the beginning we concentrated on the cutest plushies, wallets and cellphone accessories by Kutusita Nyanko and the Rilakkuma family. That means adorable cat paws, big bears and dressed up chicks. They all have one thing in common: They are SOFT. Really soft. We could spend the whole day just rubbing the different items against our cheeks. And when you see the big Rilakkuma plushie in that yellow sleeping bag, you just want to squeeze yourself into that sleeping bag too to cuddle all day long…. But don’t do it, it won’t work.

It doesn’t get much furrier than that, folks, so check out out latest San-X stuff.

10 of our craziest products

We got so many fun things during the last weeks that we thought it would be a nice idea to summarize some of the craziest stuff we have. To be honest, we could easily pick a top 50 selection, so reducing it to 10 items was the real challenge. If you have other suggestions for crazy products to include in this collection, feel free to share them with us. We would like to know what you think. But until you do, check out our selection of 10 crazy things on modes4u:

1. Kutusita Nyanko Furry Pencil Case

This could remind you a bit of a bearskin near a fireplace. But it’s a lot cuter. And the pencil case will certainly attract some attention. It’s super soft to touch, has a rather unusual appearance and shape for a pencil case and offers room in Kutusita Nyankos cute belly to put your pens, make-up or other stuff you need to store.
2. Stag beetle stickers

Okay, in the eyes of most people stag beetle don’t belong to the group of  animals, which you want to see on bags, stickers, fabrics and more. But don’t underestimate them. Although they are not cute in the traditional way, they are still very funny and entertaining. Especially as people will certainly not expect them. So why not add a few stag beetle stickers to your next project?

3. Little Red Riding Hood Shopping Bag

This is the fairy tale come true. An adorable shopping bag with Little Red Riding Hood coming out of the belly of a soft wolf pouch. It’s such a cute idea and really handy at the same time. Because there is so often a need for a  foldable bag to transport your groceries or shopping items. Getting out the bag will become the highlight of your shopping experience.

4. Chinese Dumplings Eraser

This is just hilarios. Can you imagine erasing with some Mini Chinese Dumplings? Which are incredibly detailed by the way, it’s always amazing to see how those tiny things can seem so real. Of course you can choose from hundreds of dishes when it comes to food erasers. Chinese, Japanese, fast food, desserts, all available as tiny erasers. Still this dumpling eraser is one of  our highlights. Maybe cause we’re situated in Hong Kong and eat dumplings quite a lot.

5. Budgie Post-its

Just the thought of a book with many little budgies sticking out already makes us smile. Maybe because budgies are not as present in our daily kawaii life as all those deer, bears, cats etc. Mmmh, we wonder why. They are colourful, funny and entertaining. Perfect kawaii material. So enjoy them.

6. Brick Bento Box

Most of our Bento Boxes do have funny designs or special shapes. But this box stands out even a bit more and is very popular in our shop. Maybe storing lunch in a big brick brings back childhood memories somehow.  Maybe it’s just the fact that they look cool and are a bright eye catcher. No matter what causes the attraction, it works.

7. Rilakkuma Sandwich Squishy

Bread squishies are all over the place. There are so many different styles, still this Rilakkuma sandwich squishy has something special about it. Certainly the fact that there is lettuce and cold cuts on the sandwich makes it even funnier. And it just looks yummy overall. Don’t you just want a tasty sandwich like that? Just don’t eat the squishy.

8. Crazy Bottle Pencil Caps

Pencil caps are already a funny thing by itself – you don’t really need them, but they look cute. But now you can even carry a super tiny milk carton or a bottle of strawberry milk on your pencil. Can it get any cuter? We would not know how. The crazy bottle pencil caps are from the new ‘Rilakkuma Chocolate and Coffee’ collection and come in different sets. We will add them to our shop within the next days.

9. Skull Eraser Making Clay Set

It’s always pretty cool to make your own things, no matter if you art and craft with kids or design something fashionable for yourself. And could it be cooler than funky skull erasers? DIY eraser clay sets are an easy way to create something unique. And they even glow in the dark.

10. Comic Fabric

A whole new experience: Read a comic not on paper, but on fabric. Okay, we have to admit it won’t be a whole comic. Still the retro Michael Miller fabric is pretty cool and the selected pictures quite hilarious. What a wonderful material for art or fashion projects. Not only comic fans will love it.

New: Soft and furry pouches and pencil cases

Mmmh, they feel so good. With our latest delivery from San-X we also got a lot of cute furry pencil cases, pouches and wallets. They look really cute and also feel great of course. There is some stuff of the new Rilakkuma chocolate and coffee collection, but also a lot of new Kutusita Nyanko products. Kids will definitely love them, but they are also a great gift for people every age or a cute present to yourself. We’ll keep adding new San-X products to our store, there’s a lot more to come.

Cute visitor in our office

We are surrounded by cute things everyday, but this one beats them all. We have an adorable visitor in our office at the moment. Our managing director Sandra is on Christmas holiday in Austria and all the remaining modes4u staff takes care of her cat. That super sweet animal really can’t complain about not getting enough attention, because everybody is stroking her constantly. Still, her favourite thing to do is sleeping. Her favourite spot for that is an empty box where she cuddles up and naps for hours. So cute!

Unfortunately this cat isn’t for sale – otherwise we would have bought it ourselves already – but if you can’t get enough of those soft purring animals, take a look at all of our cat products. In particular we added a lot of new Kutusita Nyanko items recently. That black cat with the white paws is really sweet.

A Unique Christmas Gift Idea for Tidy Ones

Everything looks spick-and-span, it’s always clean and all things have their place. It’s pretty impressive how some people manage to keep up order in their lives. So give them something for Christmas which enables them to stay that way.

Our unique Christmas gift idea for tidy ones: Pencil Cases

Those cases are real multi-purpose items, because not only can you use them to hold together your pens and pencils, but also all kinds of other stuff: make-up, jewelry, buttons, tapes, papers, odds and ends.
