Soaked & Shocked

July 16, 2016

Our Water-soaked Golden BoxThis is what happened to our Golden Box where we keep our customers' invoice tags after we pack their orders :( It usually sits on the left corner of our packing table as usual yesterday, and we noticed the box was somehow all wet and changed its shape miserably with many winkles. Soaked & Shocked, and we found all the invoice tags we kept inside for this week have also soaked...very much. Screamed & panicked a little but there were no other damages on our table, computers, most of all, our customers' toys to pack and ship. Phew... 

We investigated the cause and found out that the water comes from the ceiling of our office and it was from the second floor. We contacted our landowner immediately and they are going to do further check on the dripping water.

Funny thing is that the box is used for our so-called "Lucky Draw" in our live-streaming show, one lucky customer is picked for 500 yen discount code every week. And we think  the person is super lucky because his invoice tag has survived in the water-soaked situation, and won the drawing for it. We were lucky too that we didn't get any damages on our PC or toys on the same packing table by the dripping water from the ceiling. 

Hole on the Golden BoxI mean how much chances we have for water-drips get though one single hole on the golden box in our office?? Amazing, right? So we thought something about this. We would like to keep using the box because it is transformed into "Super Lucky Golden Box" now inside, but his outside needs to be a bit more fancy than THIS! Wouldn't you think the box be much more than this? Wouldn't you think your favorite stickers on the super lucky box would bring you a lucky day? 

Please send us any stickers you like to power-up this box:

We will be showing off the Super Lucky Draw Box every week on our live-streaming shows and your sticker will be seen in the shows :) I know there are many unlucky things going around the world. We would like to keep our little lucks alive and share it with everyone :)

Kyuranger! The Second Wave has Arrived!!

February 14, 2017

Kyuranger!Wow. The first wave of Kyuranger items were massive amount and it was the largest wholesale we ever invested, and most of them went out of stock right after we activated them last Sunday. In the desperate request emails we receive from our customers, we contacted our wholesalers next morning and negotiated with them for more of them. They said they were about to pack them and send them to other shops in Japan but they held them for us and decided to wait for our another order for the 2nd wave before 1 PM JST on Monday, Feb. 13th. I was on my way to Uwajima City for the CSTOYS Toku Wave radio recording from 3 PM JST, but I stopped by at one famous hamburger chain store and was on my laptop computer while biting one of their hamburgers. Figured the how many of each Kyuranger items are needed from our store and typed on emails to our wholesalers and BANG! Hit the return key. Submission completed.
