Rare Duffy the Disney Bear by Steiff for 5th Anniversary of Tokyo Disney Land

Duffy the Disney Bear is Mickey Mouse’s favorite teddy bear! Did you know that Duffy became only popular after Japanese tourism company running Tokyo Disney parks decided to push for its marketing? That’s why Japan has more Duffy fans than any other places in the world.

Back in 2006, Tokyo Disney Sea celebrated its 5th anniversary and released limited edition Duffy the Disney Bear plush made by Steiff. Only 1000 bears were made, and sold out fast for a bear as expensive as 42,000 yen. Here is a catalog showing 5th anniversary Steiff Duffy (on the left). On the right is 10th anniversary edition, which is less rare.



I found one of these 1000 bears listed on Yahoo Japan Auction today.

anniversary-duffy-disney-bear-steiff-rinkya-japan anniversary-duffy-disney-bear-steiff-rinkya-japan2 anniversary-duffy-disney-bear-steiff-rinkya-japan3


It has been kept in the original box since its purchase, never been touched other than to take a photo this time. Everything including the original certificate and instruction manuals are included. It is a very rare, highly sought after Steiff bear as well as a Duffy merchandise in near mint condition.

Four more days to bid! Make sure to watch it if you want to win.

Do you like curry rice? A delicious dish of curry rice is only 5 minutes away!
Nissin’s new Cup Curry Rice looks vaguely similar to the company’s Cup Noodle line, but instead of noodle, it’s got rice and curry in it. What you have to do is add water and microwave it for 5 minutes, it’s that easy.

There are three levels of spiciness to choose from.

Two Sets of Popy Voltes V Volt in Box Listed for Auction


Today we have two sets of vintage Voltes V Volt in Box toys by Popy listed on Yahoo Japan Auction. They are both 80’s re-release version of the original 1977 Volt in Box with red elbows (the original one has yellow elbows). Both are in fairly good conditions and come with 2 different versions of Popy booklets.

1) Popy Voltes V Volt in Box with the Popy Booklet 2nd edition

popinica-voltes-v-volt-in-box-rinkya-japan popinica-voltes-v-volt-in-box-rinkya-japan3 popinica-voltes-v-volt-in-box-rinkya-japan2




All editions of 80’s Volt in Box sets have the same contents, except for what’s on the lower left side. This is the space that contains a Popy pen, survey postcard, and Popy booklet. There are three variations to Popy booklets in this era. This particular set above has a black book titled “Monoshiri TV Kyoku No.2,” which is the second edition of Popy booklet.


2) Popy Voltes V Volt in Box with the Popy Booklet 3rd Edition

This second set of Volt in Box has Popy booklet showcasing Ultraman kaiju monsters and little dolls. This is the third edition of Poppy booklet. It’s kind of strange to have Tsuburaya production’s merchandise in Voltes V toy, but that’s what was allowed back in the day! This is probably the final edition of Volt in Box.

Priroll, a pastry company specialized in custom design roll cake is now offering Attack on Titan collaboration cakes! Whooping 13 different designs are available for order. Featured characters include Mikasa, Eren, Levi, and Colossal Titan.

1) Four Designs of Mikasa, Eren, and Levi Cake Rolls.

You get to choose a cake with only one character (with different angle) or three of them all together! It even has dashed lines printed on it so you don’t worry about slicing your favorite character in half when you are cutting the cake. How considerate of them!





2) Three Designs of Mikasa, Eren, and Levi Cale Rolls with Custom Message Sections



You can put a character’s quote in the blank section on the left of the character, or make your own message!

3) Three Designs of Mikasa, Eren, and Levi Cale Rolls with Custom Message Sections AND Custom Photos



This option lets you customize not only the text, but also a photo of your choice inserted in the cake.

4) Three Designs of Colossal Titan Cake Rolls



And lastly, Colossal Titan cakes. This one is great because it actually suggests you stabbing your knife in the Titan’s back of the neck, its weak point. It’s kind of gross but definitely the most creative cake roll so far. Below are two additional Colossal Titan designs.




Priroll has made Creamy Mami, Naruto, Bleach, and various Sanrio characters collaboration cakes in the past. Check them all out on their website!

Epic Manga Meat Is Now Available As a Sweet Pastry

When you see a dining scene in manga and anime, meat on the bone seems to be a popular choice of meal, and it always has that particular shape and looks for some reason.

manga-meat-roll-cake-rinkya-japan10 manga-meat-roll-cake-rinkya-japan7



Have you ever wondered what manga meat tastes like? It certainly looks good when all the characters munch on them so hungrily.
A Japanese company Kawabun actually made “Manga Meat,” an accurate real-life replica of that delicious meat on the bone w always see in 2D.


The bottom photo is the actual product. Notice it’s got kind of a fluffy texture?
It’s actually made of Baumkuchen, a sweet German-style cake that is particularly popular in Japan. I’m not quite sure what they were trying to accomplish by turning meat into a cake, but it would be a great joke gift and a birthday present for sure!

You can order from a single serving of manga meat for 1,260 yen, to 3 servings, 6 servings, 10 servings, and 15 servings. Wow, it gets crazy pretty fast!



The bone part is made of plastic, so you can eat it, by the way… You can keep it after eating the cake.
