Unko Means Good Luck! Pooping Coin Dog Bank!

The Tokyo Toy Show started yesterday in Japan and we look forward to seeing more coverage on the amazing new toys to be released.

Transformers, dolls, plushies, games and so much more are being revealed! Remember, you can always get any exclusives from Rinkya!

We have some footage from Kaden Watch on this funny little toy bank!  Unko (“poop”) is considered good luck in Japan!  Feed this little guy your coin and he poops it right out into a bank!

I wish my dog pooped out coins…that would BE awesome luck!

Dragonball Z & Kamen Rider Sodas Taste Review

In Japan, anime and characters are all over every possible piece of merchandise.  Two of our staff members tried the Dragonball Z and Kamen Rider sodas to see if they were any different!

If you like orange soda, then the Dragonball Z flavor is it! Nothing strange or different here- Just delicious orange soda!     However, Kamen Rider soda…

According to our two tasters, Kamen Rider tastes “old”(old show=old taste?) and bitter.  
The actual flavor is called “ramune” which is a lemon & lime flavor, but Kamen Rider fails to achieve that.  When asked if they would recommend to anyone, the answer was “Hell, no”-  both agreed the cans looked awesome!
Want to try one?  We will add it to your next Rinkya shipment*, just comment below, we have a couple left!  Limited supply-  first come, first served!

*If, of course, it is safe to do so! The can will not add any additional cost to any item shipped FedEx, however ship cost for it alone is $$ (cans of soda are heavy!), so will only ship with a current package!

The long hiatus was due to the birth of my baby girl last June! In 3 days she will be one year old- time flies!
