Amulets from temples or shrines, charms with their favorite pop idols or manga or anime heroes, cute mascots, traditional symbols: take a ride on any Japanese train and you will see a gallery of all the above hanging from passengers' bags and backpacks. Despite all that talk about conformity, the Japanese put a lot of effort in personalizing their stuff and start doing so from a very early age, often creating these items themselves. With kits like the Sumikko Gurashi Power Charms Maker!
If you're a fan of the cute animal characters from the San-X Sumikko Gurashi series, the Sumikko Gurashi Power Charms Maker contains everything you need to create your own unique charms. From sheets with the characters in various combinations to colored beads, pom-poms, glitter, ball chains to hang them from, and even an electric gadget that seals them to make sure they last long, this set is a miniature workshop that helps your children explore their creativity and make beautiful decorations for their clothes and accessories!
