Hello everyone! Yesterday morning I put on my BoscoSport Cheburashka tee to cheer on the Russian ladies skaters in the Olympics. I had my eye on Yulia Lipnitskaya- she is awesome- but I was thrilled when Adelina Sotnikova won! I love Yuna Kim too and was sad that she didn't get to be a 2-time gold medal winner, but I was pleased a Russian won. I was also so happy for Carolina Kostner! Did you watch?
However, I still had several hours to go before the event aired at 10am, so I got out a favorite toy- my Hello Kitty sushi Re-ment! Re-ment is a company that makes tiny miniatures. I am not usually a big Hello Kitty fan (I prefer Badtz Maru and Chococat), but when I saw the sushi set in the case at Toy Tokyo, I knew I wanted to collect them! I've had these toys for over a year and never gotten around to sharing pictures. My internet friend Echo, from the blog fromechowithlove.com, posted about her Re-ment and she told me I should share mine too!
So here it is! There are several sets to collect and they come in blind boxes- which means you don't know which set you'll get until you open it! I was lucky to get a complete set. I love sushi and I really like this set. I love the little Hello Kitty sushi set. My favorite thing in the set is the little thing on the black plate with the Hello Kitty face and bow on it! I also like the little white Hello Kitty in the black bowl- I think it's supposed to be mochi.
Then today I was so excited about playing Re-ment that I got out one of my other Re-ment sets- the Hina Matsuri (Girls Day) sweet set! (Do you remember when I celebrated Hina Matsuri last year? You can check out that post here.) I don't have the complete set of the Hina Matsuri Re-ment, but I wanted to share it anyway. It's all traditional Japanese sweets- yum!
Here is a little bit of a closer look at the different sweets. My favorites are the pink cup of matcha and the red and white box of bunny-shaped treats. So cute!
Do you have any special collections? What are they?
