New San-X delivery arrived today

Today we got a really huge San-X delivery from Japan. It was very big, as you can see on the pictures. We had a little fun with it before unpacking. For example Lok – one of  our packing fairies – could just hide perfectly behind it. Okay, we have to admit that she is rather short anyway, but still the size of the delivery was impressive. Even for us and we get deliveries all the time. So what was in the boxes you want to know? Cute stuff of course. Especially tons of memo pads, notebooks and stationery with all our good friends from Rilakkuma to Kamonohashikamo and Kireizukin. We’ll add the new stuff to our online shop as soon as possible, but it will take a few days. Here’s already a glimpse of what you will find.

Adorable Rilakkuma Christmas Plushies

It’s still almost 4 months until Christmas, but those plushies definitely put you in the right mood for it. San-X just announced those super cute Rilakkuma plush toys for Christmas. We immediately fell in love with them. Unfortunately they are not for sale outside of Japan, so we can’t get them ourselves. That’s really too bad. Especially Rilakkuma as Santa looks incredibly cute and the yellow chick on the Christmas tree is just hilarious.

Huge Rilakkuma Plushie released

This is a dream come true for all kawaii-Fans…and children. San-X released a super huge Rilakkuma plush toy. It is 165cm tall and looks just incredibly soft and cozy. Everybody at the office immediately fell in love with it, so we are ordered one as an office mascott. It will definitely be taller than some of our staff members. Don’t you just want to cuddle and squeeze it? We won’t sell the huge bear in our shop because it is for sale in Japan only, but of course we have many other cute Rilakkuma items. They are just smaller. 😉

Rilakkuma at Circle K in Hong Kong

Circle K (a shop similar to 7-11) has a special Rilakkuma promotion going on at the moment. For every 20 HKD (~US$2.6) spent, you get a small sealed package. Inside this package is a San-X sticker with a number printed on it. You also get a paper sheet at the shop where you can stick those stickers on. Once you have stickers worth 100 points collected, you can get a free gift. You can choose between a San-X luggage tag or 2 different kinds of pens. If you collect stickers worth 10,000 points, you get a big Rilakkuma plush for free. We are collecting already but it will take a while to get to 100 points. If we get the gift we will have a giveaway here on our blog and give it to one of our readers. Shall we choose one of the luggage tags or one of the pens?

San-X products delivery

We finally received our order from San-X after waiting for 3 months plus a problem with crushed boxes. We checked all cartons carefully and fortunately all products arrived safely without any damages. Lucky us! We couldn’t resist and had to spread out the goods to take some pictures of them. It is quite tricky to do this because there are so many products and we have limited floor space. There are so many new cute letter sets, pencil cases, folder, ruler, pencils and bento boxes. The following San-X characters are included: Rilakkuma, Kerori, Kamonohashikamo, Sabo Kappa, Berry Puppy, Kireizukin, Kutusita Nyanko and Mamegoma. We tried our best to get as many products as possible on one picture. Because it was impossible, we decided to take a video as well and upload it to our YouTube channel. If you want to see more videos taken by us, please subscribe to our YouTube channel!

Tokyo International Gift Show Spring 2011

We were visiting Tokyo the last couple of days to go to the Tokyo International Gift Show. Last week, one of our suppliers, San-X, invited us to come and meet them in person. So we decided very quickly, that we will fly to Tokyo to meet them. We booked the airplane tickets and the hotel a few days before the show and flew to Tokyo on the 1st of February. Luckily we got 2 tickets because it is Chinese New Year right now and lots of Chinese people are going on holidays to Japan. We spent 4 days at the gift show and walked for hours and hours to check out all the booths. We met some companies who we ordered from before like San-X, Prime Nakamura, Debika and Echino, and we found a lot of new contacts. There were so many nice products displayed and we talked to so many companies, we had trouble to carry all those catalogues we got with us. 😉
We even met Rilakkuma and his friends, Kapibara-san, Beggar Swindle and others in person. It is not allowed to take pictures at the gift show, only a few booths got a special permit to allow photos while the characters were walking around. Of course I had to take some pictures with them 😉
