kawaii in Corea

Il Giappone è la terra d’origine del kawaii, quindi non c’è da sorprendersi se andiamo spesso in Giappone in viaggio d’affari per scoprire le ultime tendenze kawaii. Ma altri paesi non sono da meno. Qualche tempo fa abbiamo visitato una fiera in Corea e ci siamo anche fermati in un sacco di negozi per vedere quello che offrono. Abbiamo scoperto un sacco di prodotti kawaii molto adorabili fra cui spiccano gli accessori per cellulare. Ecco alcuni fra quelli più teneri:

Impressioni del Tokyo Gift Show

Un paio di settimane fa, parte del nostro team è volato in Giappone e ha visitato il Tokyo International Gift Show. Forse avete già visto qualche foto su Facebook, ma ne abbiamo scelte altre da farvi vedere. Non è facile fare le foto al Gift Show, perché è permesso fotografare solamente gli spettacoli, non gli stand espositivi. Se ci si prova, le guardie di sicurezza arrivano subito. Nonostante ciò, siamo riusciti a scattare alcune foto di nascosto per offrirvi un’impressione generale. Uno dei punti forti era ovviamente costituito da Rilakkuma e amici. Erano vestiti in abiti Hawaiani, in quanto questo è il tema della nuova collezione Rilakkuma che presto avremo nel nostro negozio.

Buon Compleanno Gabi

Questa settimana abbiamo festeggiato un altro compleanno in ufficio. Gabi non ha solo ricevuto un’ottima torta Tiramisù, ma anche la scritta ‘happy Birthday2 composta con dei biscotti colorati a forma di lettera. Parte del team modes4u è a una fiera in Giappone, quindi c’era molto cibo. Ognuno ha avuto una fetta di torta molto grande e un biscotto. C’è un modo migliore per trascorrere la pausa pranzo?


Buon Compleanno Gabi.

Esclusivi pelouche Rilakkuma per il Capodanno cinese

Che sorpresa carina. Il Capodanno cinese avrà presto inizio e la San-X ha lanciato un’edizione limitata Rilakkuma per il Capodanno cinese 2013 in occasione dell’anno del Serpente e noi abbiamo questi adorabili giocattoli di peluche nel nostro negozio. Si tratta di un grande onore, perché solo pochissimi rivenditori in tutto il mondo sono autorizzati a vendere questi prodotti fuori dal Giappone. Siamo molto orgogliosi e assolutamente innamorati di questi tre peluche. 


Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma e Kiiroitori indossano berretti o costumi verdi da serpente e hanno anche un serpente domestico molto carino. Gli orsetti hanno in mano dei piccoli portafogli e sperano di ricevere molti soldi. Tutti i pelouche hanno la scritta ‘2013’ ricamata, per evidenziare il fatto che sono dei portafortuna per quest’anno.


Affrettatevi se volete uno, questa è un’edizione limitata e non sarà possibile ottenere di nuovo questi pelouche.

Nuove adorabili gomme da cancellare nel nostro negozio

Questa settimana abbiamo ricevuto un sacco di nuove gomme da cancellare prodotte dall’azienda giapponese Iwako. Le bambine ameranno i carinissimi orsacchiotti con parka colorati che abbiamo ricevuto in sette colori diversi. Ai bambini piaceranno i piccoli dinosauri che escono dall’uovo. È anche possibile rimuovere i piccoli T-Rex o triceratopi dall’uovo e avere dei cuccioli di dinosauro con cui giocare.


I piccoli pulcini nell’uovo che abbiamo ricevuto nei colori giallo, verde e rosa pallido sono anche perfetti come regalini di Pasqua.


Infine, abbiamo un nuovo set di gomme con gli animali da safari come il canguro, il rinoceronte, il coccodrillo, la tigre, il panda e altri ancora. Tutte le gomme sono prodotte in diversi colori e sono molto dettagliate.
