Our favourite product of the week: Cat paw ballpoint

Man, this week we added quite a few products to our shop. At last we finished to upload all the stationery products from our huge San-X delivery, but we also got new Re-Ment-Sets and Kokka fabrics. One item stuck in our mind even a bit more than the others, that’s why we chose it as our favourite product of the week and want to share with you.

Our product of the week is the funny Kutusita Nyanko plush ballpoint cat paw pen. Why? Because it’s soft and cute and hilarious. And it has little bells attached that ring when you move it. It sounds like a real cat is running around. Adorable. And did we mention that we think the pen is funny? Nothing more to add :-).

New Japanese stationery by San-X

I wrote a couple of days ago that we received a new delivery from Japan. Finally, we finished adding all products to our shop. It took us very long this time because we had a few other deliveries at the same time and had to take literally hundreds of photos and write descriptions for all those products. You can imagine, that is a lot of work. But we are finally done and all San-X stationery is available online in our kawaii shop. There are lots of new plastic file folders, cute letter sets, pencil cases and pouches, pencils, rulers and bento boxes:

San-X cartons crushed

I received a call from our cargo agent in Hong Kong who told me that they have a problem with our cartons. We are expecting a delivery from San-X Japan including lots of stationery items and he told me that some of the cartons got damaged and one got crushed. They took pictures of the cartons when they were unloaded from the container and sent them to me. I was quite worried because we are waiting for this order for 3 months already and I didn’t want to have another delay in receiving those items. So I took a risk and told them not to return the cartons to Japan and send them to us instead. I really, really hope the products inside the cartons are safe and not broken. I will write a post again once they arrived,
