Only in Japan would you get plushie Panda velcro cable ties… but the ‘MADE IN CHINA’ tag is the same the world over.
Your mum told me to have a look at this website. Wow! I'm putting it in my favourites. You seem to be having a great time in Japan. Do you intend to become a resident alien or will ET (BJM) go home? Enjoy. I look forward to reading more of your adventures. All the best Howard and Nina.Mason Mouse
I hate to break it to you, but that may not be a cable tie. It looks just like the little toys my infant nephew has wrapped around the handle to his carseat. :) I can get ahold of some sippy cups if you're interested though!inertia
Well, having now looked up what a 'sippy cup' is, I think I'll pass on that kind offer -- though I'm sure you could get quite a nice Hello Kitty (Kitty-chan) one out here... Alas, I've binned the packaging, but I'm fairly sure it was a cable tie... given I bought it in a tech-shop. That said, I've been known to be wrong ;).
