Kutusita Nyanko

The small black cat Kutusita Nyanko wears white socks on every paw and looks super adorable. His real name is “Bon Chan”. He lives with a human called “Papa” and loves him very much. But Papa has to work all day long to be able to buy cat food for his cats. Kutusita Nyanko loves music, especially the piano and the violin. Strawberries and sweets are some of his favourite foods. He loves to spend time outside where he plays with his cat friends.

DIY idea: make your own San-X coloring book

Your kindergarten group, primary school students, little brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews will love it! San-X always offers lots of free e-goodies on their Japanese company website. For example you can download lots of kawaii coloring pages with characters like Rilakkuma, Mamegoma or Kutusita Nyanko. So why not make your own coloring book? You can save all the San-X coloring pages as pdfs, print them out and craft your own little booklet by stapling them together. Of course you can also use some Masking Tapes to decorate your book.

This is a great way to craft something simple for children.

modes4u team: Rilakkuma asks……. Maggie

Without her you might not even know about us. Get to know our online marketing expert Maggie in our team introduction series.

Hello, who are you by the way?
I’m Maggie, 28 years old, and live with my two lovely cats in Hong Kong. I grew up in this city and really love it, but I also wanted to see more of the world. So I went to Europe for a year, worked quite a while in Ireland and traveled through many countries.

Before I started to work for modes4u I was employed by an online marketing agency in Hong Kong. My experience and skills really help me a lot in my job now, where I can apply them on a whole new level.

What is your job at modes4u?
I am responsible for the internet marketing in our company, so basically it is my job to make sure everybody knows about modes4u. My job is never finished, because we constantly come up with more ideas how we can make our shop known on the internet. I promote our kawaii products by advertising online and organizing giveaways and cooperations with different channels. Also I am in charge of our Affiliate Program and of course keep an eye on what’s happening on the web and where modes4u should be present.

What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
From all the cute characters in our shop I love Kutusita Nyanko cat the most. I also bring my Kutusita Nyanko wallet every day that I bought in our shop.

Despite of all the cute characters we have, I have to say that our fabrics here impressed me the most. They are really pretty, colourful and very high quality, especially when you compare them to the ones you can get on the local fabric markets in Hong Kong. I even joined a sewing class, because I was so often thinking about what I could make with those fabrics.

What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
I enjoy the international atmosphere here very much, there are colleagues from different countries and the intercultural exchange is really exciting. Everybody loves to share his/her own culture, for example colleagues always bring food from their trips or cook typical dishes to share with everyone. It’s also very funny to find out cultural differences in taste, language or activities. This helps us to get to know the Hong Kong culture better too.

Also modes4u is honestly the best online shop that I have ever seen when it comes to the products, organization and customer service.

You’re surrounded by creative stuff the whole day. Do you like to craft or to be creative in your leisure time?

I like to learn new things and am interested in many different creative directions. For a while I was doing some felting, where I created cute mini felt objects. Then I took a sewing class to learn how to sew.
I also love eating and cooking, so I took classes where I learned how to make macaroons or egg tarts.

Clean your screen: kawaii screen cleaners

Screens are real dust and dirt magnets, but cleaning them might become your new favourite activity. Because we now carry some really adorable screen cleaner charms from San-X. Those cute little plush charms all have a special surface on one side, which allows you to clean cellphone displays, laptop screens or TV screens from dust and dirt. And they are so small and handy that you can carry them on your keychain, bag or bagpack.

We got some brand new screen cleaners from the latest Rilakkuma Happy Holiday Picnic collection, but our favourites are the Kutusita Nyanko ones, especially the cute Kutusita cat paw. This one you can even put on your finger and wipe the screen. C’mon, can it be any cuter?

Our favourite product of the week: kawaii Band-Aids

Clearly a product for children, you might think. But we promise: Those band-aids look great on adults too. We just love the idea of putting a cute glitter band-aid on our skin instead of those flesh coloured ones. Isn’t it much more fun to look at those adorable designs? Don’t you forget about the pain immediately? We suggest you should try it.

The kawaii band-aids with Rilakkuma bear, Mamegoma seals and Kutusita Nyanko cat are our favourite product of the week.

San-X store modes4u: Nearly 1000 San-X products in our shop

We are still busy adding the products from our last San-X delivery to our shop. It was the largest shipping we ever got from the Japanese company and made us realize how much of their products we sell on modes4u.com. We are really proud that we offer almost 1000 San-X items. Currently we have more than 700 of their products in stock and order more and new things regularly. Last year our shop also became an official San-X retailer, which made us very happy.

San-X is one of the largest character oriented stationary and gift manufacturing companies in Japan and one of our biggest suppliers for cute stationery, bento boxes and accessories. The characters they developed belong to the most popular ones in our shop. Do you want to know which characters you can find in our little modes4u San-X store? Here are our Top 5:

1. Rilakkuma

We have nearly 500 items with the relaxed brown bear and his friends Korilakkuma (white bear) and Kiiroitori (yellow chick) in our shop and currently stock over 400. No other San-X character has such a strong presence on modes4u.com, and our customers love Rilakkuma. We mainly carry Rilakkuma products in our stationery section, but also in accessories and bento boxes. The Rilakkuma meets honey collection and the Rilakkuma Chocolate and Coffee collection are totally popular in our shop.

2. Kutusita Nyanko

By now we already carry 100 products with the cute little black cat wearing white socks on every paw. Around 80 items can currently be bought, especially in the form of stickers, pencils, erasers, deco tapes, plushies and cellphone accessoires. Kutusita Nyanko has many cute cat friends in different colours.

3. Sentimental Circus

More and more of our customers are in love with the cute Sentimental Circus crew. The 80 items we currently stock out of the 90 products displaying the cute abandoned toys have a very special aesthetic and just look adorable. 9 different characters belong to Sentimental Circus with rabbit Shappo being the main figure of the circus team. He is the circus director with the top-hat.

4. Mamegoma Seals

The cute baby seals have a huge Fan base, therefore most products we get are sold out super quickly. This is why we ‘only’ have around 35 of the 90 products in stock at the moment. The cute Mamegoma seals charm with a fun and positive attitude. Our customers love the stationery products such as folders, memo pads or stickers with the small swimmers.

5. Kireizukin racoon

Kireizukin is a little racoon that loves to clean and sew when he is wearing his colourful hood. All of the 25 products we carry with the little animal belong to our stationery section, but only half of them are currently available in the form of memo pads, folders, stickers or pencil cases.
