Ticklish Hello Kitty plush

Last month we went to Tokyo to visit the Gift Show and look for new suppliers of cute items for our kawaii shop. While we were in Tokyo we also visited Kiddyland, Daiso, Hello Kitty’s Kawaii Paradise and some other cute shops. At Hello Kitty’s Kawaii Paradise I found a super funny Hello Kitty plush in a pink bunny costume. When you tickled her, she started giggling and rolling around the floor. It was so funny. We had to take a video to show you guys. By the way, I plan to write a couple of extra blog posts about each of those kawaii retail shops in Tokyo because we took tons of pictures there and I am sure you will love to see them. ;-)

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:

cute Christmas header for our shop

We designed three really cute Christmas header for our kawaii shop. One design is with little black cats and a Christmas tree, another one is with kawaii animals in Christmas stockings and the third one is with some children playing with snow. Those 3 headers rotate randomly in our shop. So you may see a new shop header every time you look at a new page in our shop. I hope you like them as much as we do.
