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 😉

Our Amazon Shop is open

Today our Amazon Shop was finally released after a last check up by Amazon. You can find us on Amazon Germany here: Kawaii Welt. “Kawaii Welt” is the shop name and means “Kawaii World” in German. For the moment, we will sell our Tenshi Neko bags, Mimori items and our products from San-X with Rilakkuma and Mamegoma. If we get a good feeling with these items, we will start adding more items, especially from our kawaii line. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a successful start on Amazon Germany. I will keep you updated about success or (hopefully not) failure in the near future.

San-X Meeting

We met with the Japanese boss from San-X Hong Kong today. He is very interested in working together with us as San-X is only focusing on the Asian market at the moment. He wants to expand their products to Europe and North America and we are the perfect partner for them because our wholesale and end-user customers are mainly from Europe, USA and Canada. We have quite a lot of contacts to shop owners who could be interested in selling these products. So we will act as an Official Wholesaler for their products to European and North American markets.

So, if you are interested in buying San-X products in bulk, please contact me by e-mail and I will send you the Official Wholesale catalogs with all their current products including Rilakkuma (Relax Bear), Mamegoma (little seal), Monokuro boo (a black & a white pig), Tarepanda (lazy panda) and many many more. We will also keep a big stock for our online shop and to be able to send out wholesale orders quickly.
