Got your minis RIGHT HERE
So. The Japanese are into cell phone straps, ne? Like, if your PDA has less than 5 kawaii chara dangling from it, you're probably violating a law or something. These people are SERIOUS about cute.
Anyways, there's this company, that I think you spell "Run A." Though I've never been 100% sure, their web site seems to spell it "RUN'A." Anyways, they make tons of keen Stitch stuff, including that fabulous Stitch flatscreen TV. They ALSO make themed Stitch mascots for various territories of Japan. Lots and lots and lots of them. If you're travelling in Japan, in fact, it's kinda fun to look out for them. Generally, you find them in the little touristy shops, and they generally depict Stitch chomping, Godzilla-style, on some local landmark.
To make things even more confusing, they've introduced variations, where they'll change the strap color, or add beads to the straps, or put the mascots on top of pens instead of straps. Anyways, I'm adding a few photos to my Flickr, so you can check 'em out.
