It’s Visit Your Relatives Day!

Today marks a unique annual occurrence, known as Visit Your Relatives Day. Family and extended family are so important in today’s society, with many of us having special bonds with our family members, and these bonds are often treasured for a lifetime. Of course, many of us also have relatives we love who live overseas thus it’s not always that easy to see them in person. In cases like this, we can always rely on sending a card or a letter, to let our loved ones know how much they’re appreciated. Check out some of our beautiful stationery, which includes letter sets and pens/pencils, to help you get started on personalized notes for your family.

Rilakkuma Wonderland collection in our shop

We already mentioned it here and there, to celebrate Rilakkuma’s 10th Anniversary this year San-X released lots of special Rilakkuma editions. We now have almost 100 products with the Rilakkuma Wonderlandtheme in our shop. This collection is all about royalty and celebrations with Rilakkuma and his friends on carousels and dressed in marching band uniforms. It is super cute and super limited! We are one of the few online shops outside of Japan that is allowed to sell this collection internationally. And as it’s a limited edition we probably won’t be able to reorder it.

Check out all the stuff we have with this theme, you can find products in almost all our stationery categories: plushies, plush charms, cups, jewelry cases, pens, pencils, folders, letter sets, stickers, sticky notes, memo pads, clips, bags, pencil cases and more.

San-X shop modes4u: More than 2000 products and special editions

Our partnership with the Japanese stationary and gift manufacturing company San-X really flourished in the past years. Last year we were super proud that we carried almost 1,000 San-X products in our shop, this year the amount has more than doubled. By now we carry more than 2,100 San-X products on modes4u.com. It’s not such a big surprise when you keep in mind that Rilakkuma is the most popular character in our shop, and also San-X’ most successful character.

It’s also a big honor that we are allowed to sell limited Rilakkuma editions. To celebrate Rilakkuma’s 10th anniversary San-X has been releasing quite a few super limited plush toy editions, which are almost exclusively available in Japan. Only a handful of retailers in the whole world are allowed to sell them outside of Japan and we are one of them. This is why you can buy the Rilakkuma zodiac sign edition or the Rilakkuma Chinese New Year edition at our shop.

We will keep ordering many new products from all the different San-X characters and soon we will hopefully have 3,000 San-X products in our shop.

We are one of the few international shops worldwide allowed to sell the limited Rilakkuma zodiac signs edition
