New shop category: Sticky notes

Over the last months we got so many new index stickers and sticky notes that we decided to open a new shop catgory for them. Now you can find all these cute bookmark stickers in the category “Sticky notes”, which is a subcategory of our sticker section.

Take a look at them if you need some kawaii office helpers for school, university, work or home. They are really lots of fun to work with and we carry more than 200 different ones.

Advent calendar ideas by Rilakkuma and Lok

Christmas is slowly approaching, so it is time to start our annual Christmas gift ideas series. This year we decided to let our staff members and our office mascot Rilakkuma provide you with inspiration, as they know our products best.

Lok and Rilakkuma present some kawaii ideas for your advent calendar

Lok and Rilakkuma present some kawaii ideas for your advent calendar

Our packing fairy Lok is the first one to go. She is really an expert in the warehouse, so we asked her to pick some things she thinks are suitable to put in an advent calendar. After all these 24 little things are the first thing on your to do list if you are planning to make one as it has to be ready by December 1st. Her are some of Lok’s ideas:

1. Band-aids

With their kawaii designs and colors these band-aids are everything but boring.

2. Mini folder

Mini folders are really adorable and very suitable to hold receipts, little notes or stickers. We have a wide range with one or several pockets.

3. Push Pencil

You don’t see them too often anymore, but push pencils are a fun thing that was very popular in the 80s and 90s. Each pencil contains several tips, and once one is used up you take it out and push it to the back of the pencil, so that a new one is revealed.

4. Sticker sacks

Each sticker sack contains up to 100 stickers, so they are a great little treat for stationery lovers.

5. Squishies

Squishies are a fun and cheap little accessory. Lots of them are scented, they look cute, come in lots of different shapes and colors and are very enduring.

6. DIY Eraser Making Set

These kits contain several blocks of eraser material in different colors and scents that you can form into any shape you want. Each DIY eraser making set comes with instructions for a certain dessert design.

New characters in our shop: Nyanpuku cat

San-X has been busy developing new characters. The kawaii Nyanpuku cat was already released in 2012. But as we just recently received more products with the funny fella, we want to to introduce him today.

Nyanpuku is a fat cat who is inspired by the Japanese maneki-neko lucky cats. His name literally means ‘Meow Fortune’. He has a key-shaped tail and a heart on the back. He is already quite old – 2929 years – and brings you ‘fukudama’ happiness and fortune. The kawaii cat weighs 2.9 kg (which is supposed to be the mass that can fit in your hand) and loves food like croquettes.

We have quite a few Nayanpuku stationery products in our shop, so check them out.
