Easter page in our shop

Some of our customers have been asking us about Easter products, so today we released our Easter page on modes4u.com. Until the middle of April you can find all our products, which are connected to Easter and spring in this category. That means lots of bunny and chick items, but also lots of pretty flower and spring designs which make you look forward to that season. A lot of deco tapes, fabrics and stamps will provide good material for your art&craft projects that you are planning for that holiday. We also added some products, that we think might be a unique gift idea such as DIY clay sets for example.

Of course we will expand the category if we have more products that fit into it. Have fun rummaging in our Easter page.

We added our Easter category to our website navigation

4 Days until Valentine’s Day

Everyday stuff in the look of love. There are just certain things you use all the time and can never have enough of. Like pens for example. So if you want a useful little Valentine’s Day something for a special person, we suggest on today’s Countdown for Valentine’s Day to get some cute heart pens. They perfectly fit to Valentine’s Day but can be used 365 days a year. And hopefully that other person will think of you each time when writing with the pen.

Happy Australia Day

Dear Australian customers: A very happy Australia Day to you! To everybody else: Even if you’re not from Australia and have never heard about this day before, enjoy learning a little bit about January 26th. Because every year Australia celebrates on its national day the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain at Sydney Cove in 1788. It is one of the largest annual public events in the whole country, as there are many celebrations such as concerts, barbecues, festivals and fireworks. It is very popular to relax with family and friends on that day or to visit one of the numerous activities going on throughout the country.

We hope you have a nice day and a good party. In honor of the Australian National Day we today celebrate the most Australian symbol we could find in our shop: Our little koala bear eraser.

Hooray, we finished the San-X delivery

98….99…..100%. Let’s celebrate. We just added the last product of our huge San-X delivery to our shop. This one really kept us busy for a long time, we already got all the items in december. But as there were so many new things and also a couple of public holidays over Christmas and New Year’s, it took us a while to get everything ready for the online shop. So now you can browse through all the stuff of Rilakkuma, Kutusita Nyanko or Chou-fleur and enjoy the cuteness.

By the way, last we added cute Rilakkuma key covers and lots of adorable pens and pencils. Now we can start putting all the new fabrics online that recently arrived. So watch out for new stuff.

10 of our craziest products

We got so many fun things during the last weeks that we thought it would be a nice idea to summarize some of the craziest stuff we have. To be honest, we could easily pick a top 50 selection, so reducing it to 10 items was the real challenge. If you have other suggestions for crazy products to include in this collection, feel free to share them with us. We would like to know what you think. But until you do, check out our selection of 10 crazy things on modes4u:

1. Kutusita Nyanko Furry Pencil Case

This could remind you a bit of a bearskin near a fireplace. But it’s a lot cuter. And the pencil case will certainly attract some attention. It’s super soft to touch, has a rather unusual appearance and shape for a pencil case and offers room in Kutusita Nyankos cute belly to put your pens, make-up or other stuff you need to store.
2. Stag beetle stickers

Okay, in the eyes of most people stag beetle don’t belong to the group of  animals, which you want to see on bags, stickers, fabrics and more. But don’t underestimate them. Although they are not cute in the traditional way, they are still very funny and entertaining. Especially as people will certainly not expect them. So why not add a few stag beetle stickers to your next project?

3. Little Red Riding Hood Shopping Bag

This is the fairy tale come true. An adorable shopping bag with Little Red Riding Hood coming out of the belly of a soft wolf pouch. It’s such a cute idea and really handy at the same time. Because there is so often a need for a  foldable bag to transport your groceries or shopping items. Getting out the bag will become the highlight of your shopping experience.

4. Chinese Dumplings Eraser

This is just hilarios. Can you imagine erasing with some Mini Chinese Dumplings? Which are incredibly detailed by the way, it’s always amazing to see how those tiny things can seem so real. Of course you can choose from hundreds of dishes when it comes to food erasers. Chinese, Japanese, fast food, desserts, all available as tiny erasers. Still this dumpling eraser is one of  our highlights. Maybe cause we’re situated in Hong Kong and eat dumplings quite a lot.

5. Budgie Post-its

Just the thought of a book with many little budgies sticking out already makes us smile. Maybe because budgies are not as present in our daily kawaii life as all those deer, bears, cats etc. Mmmh, we wonder why. They are colourful, funny and entertaining. Perfect kawaii material. So enjoy them.

6. Brick Bento Box

Most of our Bento Boxes do have funny designs or special shapes. But this box stands out even a bit more and is very popular in our shop. Maybe storing lunch in a big brick brings back childhood memories somehow.  Maybe it’s just the fact that they look cool and are a bright eye catcher. No matter what causes the attraction, it works.

7. Rilakkuma Sandwich Squishy

Bread squishies are all over the place. There are so many different styles, still this Rilakkuma sandwich squishy has something special about it. Certainly the fact that there is lettuce and cold cuts on the sandwich makes it even funnier. And it just looks yummy overall. Don’t you just want a tasty sandwich like that? Just don’t eat the squishy.

8. Crazy Bottle Pencil Caps

Pencil caps are already a funny thing by itself – you don’t really need them, but they look cute. But now you can even carry a super tiny milk carton or a bottle of strawberry milk on your pencil. Can it get any cuter? We would not know how. The crazy bottle pencil caps are from the new ‘Rilakkuma Chocolate and Coffee’ collection and come in different sets. We will add them to our shop within the next days.

9. Skull Eraser Making Clay Set

It’s always pretty cool to make your own things, no matter if you art and craft with kids or design something fashionable for yourself. And could it be cooler than funky skull erasers? DIY eraser clay sets are an easy way to create something unique. And they even glow in the dark.

10. Comic Fabric

A whole new experience: Read a comic not on paper, but on fabric. Okay, we have to admit it won’t be a whole comic. Still the retro Michael Miller fabric is pretty cool and the selected pictures quite hilarious. What a wonderful material for art or fashion projects. Not only comic fans will love it.

New: Soft and furry pouches and pencil cases

Mmmh, they feel so good. With our latest delivery from San-X we also got a lot of cute furry pencil cases, pouches and wallets. They look really cute and also feel great of course. There is some stuff of the new Rilakkuma chocolate and coffee collection, but also a lot of new Kutusita Nyanko products. Kids will definitely love them, but they are also a great gift for people every age or a cute present to yourself. We’ll keep adding new San-X products to our store, there’s a lot more to come.

Cute visitor in our office

We are surrounded by cute things everyday, but this one beats them all. We have an adorable visitor in our office at the moment. Our managing director Sandra is on Christmas holiday in Austria and all the remaining modes4u staff takes care of her cat. That super sweet animal really can’t complain about not getting enough attention, because everybody is stroking her constantly. Still, her favourite thing to do is sleeping. Her favourite spot for that is an empty box where she cuddles up and naps for hours. So cute!

Unfortunately this cat isn’t for sale – otherwise we would have bought it ourselves already – but if you can’t get enough of those soft purring animals, take a look at all of our cat products. In particular we added a lot of new Kutusita Nyanko items recently. That black cat with the white paws is really sweet.
