Olympic Games start today

Today the Queen of England will officially open the Olympic Games 2012 in London. Over 200 nations will be competing for medals in this big sports event until August 12th. We are looking forward to exciting competitions, new world records and a great Olympic atmopshere. Over 11 million visitors are expected to visit the games. We hope lots of them will wear charms from the cute Hello Kitty Olympic Sports Re-Ment. Aren’t those little Hello Kitty lucky charms in the shape of Olympic sports the perfect support for this event? We think they are, at least if you’re a kawaii fan.

Incredible Kiddy Land Store in Japan

On our last trip to Japan we also visited the incredible Kiddy Land store in Tokyo. The store has four different levels full of toys and kawaii stuff. One level is fully dedicated to San-X’s Rilakkuma and Sanrio’s characters like Hello Kitty or My Melody. The store in Tokyo was closed for quite a while and just reopened shortly before we visited. We were really surprised when we got there because people were waiting in front of the store when it was still closed and rushed in as soon as the doors would open. We can definitely see why, as it was an amazing experience to stroll past all the shelves. There is so much cuteness, you don’t even know where to start. Here are some impressions for you. If you want to see all pictures we took, visit our Facebook photo album.

Seven new Re-Ments in our shop

And there are some Disney ones, some Hello Kitty ones and some Rilakkuma ones, so hopefully something for every Re-Ment fan.

Let’s start with Hello Kitty: We already announced the two sets that now arrived on our blog not so long ago, so they really just have been released. Especially the Olympic sport blind package looks really cool. You could get it as a lucky charm for the Olympic Games in London this summer, wouldn’t that be super cute? The Cake Shop set from Hello Kitty is super kawaii as well, and can you ever have enough sweets and cakes Re-Ments? The answer is no!

The new Rilakkuma sets are a bit more unusual and therefore we ADORE them. Rilakkumart is a wonderful Re-Ment with lots of miniature groceries. We haven’s seen anything like it, and it’s just a wonderful idea for doll houses. Of course you could also display these cute little things in the big Rilakkuma showcase – our second Rilakkuma set. It’s the first showcase with a Rilakkuma design.

If you’re looking for some really different type of Re-Ment the two new Disney sets are for you. One is a funny jigsaw puzzle in 4 different designs and with lots of glitter on the frames. The second one is a funny Disney stationery set, with lots of cute Mickey & Minnie stationery items.

Then there’s also news for all guinea pig friends. We have a new Kapibarasan Re-Ment. We already got the Kapibarasan Cafe Sweets set a while ago, now we also have the Kapibarasan Restaurant set with lots of cute mini dishes.

Hello Kitty Airplane going to Hong Kong

One of our team members will be going to Taiwan for a short trip soon and discovered that you can even take a special Hello Kitty plane between Hong Kong and Taipei. What pleasant news. Isn’t that the dream of every kawaii-Fan? So we did a bit of research and found some articles about this. Those new cute airplanes were actually launched a couple of months ago already and give you the whole kawaii package. Not just is the airplane painted with lovely Hello Kittys from the outside, but EVERYTHING is Hello Kitty inside too. You have Hello Kitty meals, pillows, soap, paper cups, headrest covers or boarding passes. And those are just a few things. Obviously there are more than 100 in flight items. And of course they have special Check-In counters and terminals too, at least in some cities.

All you Hello Kitty Fans probably know that the Hello Kitty planes were already launched in 2005, but in 2009 they stopped service as the licensing agreement between Sanrio and Taiwan Eva Air expired. So from now on Eva Air offers 3 Hello Kitty planes again to various destinations in Asia. Wouldn’t a flight in one of these cute planes be the perfect incentive for a future trip to and within Asia? Still our team member will not be going to Taiwan in one of those special planes. But she surely hopes that she gets to see one.
