Lots of Boxes Arrived!!

Since getting back from Japan, I hadn't picked up mail! So, there were at least more than 5 boxes waiting for me at the local PO!
 One box above from Yahoo Japan, included a Lot of cute posedoll type art notebooks and memo pads, along with an unopened set of finger puppet animals! The other box below, included two types of animal toys, and a vintage glico box unopened!

Then, two boxes from Hobby Search and Amiami. From Hobby Search I ordered this cute Obitsu grey Alice fashion for 11cm dolls! Through Amiami, I pre-ordered the Fuchiko no Cupo "Navy" set! A Fashion from etsy, socks, and shoes from Dollmore for Kikipop!

 This unopened vintage set of animal finger puppets are just so cute. Includes a doggie, elephant, cat, panda, and bunny! I will add to my shop soon!

For 500yen, I got this unopened box of Glico candy and toy. This was the very same design of Glico candies we used to get here on Guam. I remember the pitcher on the top left! I used to wish to get it or find it! I had the candies thrown out, but I will keep the box for display!
Inside, cute rose earrings!

Below, I won a large lot of notebooks and memo pads. Each quite unique with cute artwork by Mayo and Noriko. Not sure of their full names? But they look similar to Junichi's Artwork. I will add these to the shop as well!








I also found these amazing vintage toy pieces. They are actually called, "Reminding Panda or Tiger" They can be placed on a door or desk and you can write yourself a reminder on their little sign. They will rock back and forth, to help you remember something! LOL I just love their cute big eyes and vintage look!
 They both come in their original boxes.




 The instructions...

 The cute Tiger below!


Here is Chibi Lipu wearing the cute Alice dress by Obitsu!


Cute nerdy Fuchiko!
My faves are the two below. I will add the others in my For Sale page!

One of the Gatcha Gatcha I got from the airport. A cute Chocotto Animal!

 The dress on the Marmalade Brown is from a seller on etsy! I love the design and colors so yummy! She is able to fit Blythe size tops and dresses, as long as they are short sleeved or tanks.

 I then, got these cute Dollmore shoes! I love em' and need to try to order more! Kikipop can fit "Dear Doll" size shoes.

I'm Going on an Adventure: Part Three

We woke up about 8am, feeling very tired and our feet hurt from all the walking the day before. But Sam and I felt it was the best investment ever! We packed our bags and visited the shops downstairs in the lobby for some souvenirs. Then, checked out of our hotel and started making our way to the Bus depot, then the Disney Resort Line by 11am. All of it was pretty quick and then onto our reserved seats on the Narita Express.

 Some vids I took as we left Tokyo and headed to Narita International Airport...

 After about 1 hour and 30mins. We arrived at Terminal 1 to get our boarding passes for our flight. We decided to eat first before heading into TSA and Customs. Taby found some cheap converse tennis shoes. Afterwards, we decided to just head into our gate. The line moved fairly quickly and we made it to our gate by 3:45pm. We boarded our flight at about 5:05pm and made it into Guam about 10:30pm. It was an amazing adventure! Definitely worth it all to see the girls enjoy, especially Sara!

The skirt I bought Taby above and below. Rapunzel theme, many of the ladies and girls at the park wore them!
Sara below with her Mr. Potato Head container!
He was worth the $19 with Popcorn, and reusable too!
In the end, Sam felt the trip is worth doing again! So, maybe next year we will try Disney Sea!??

I'm Going on an Adventure: Part Two

We made sure we set our alarms, and funny thing is... Guam is one hour ahead of Japan so getting up at 7am wasn't so bad, because it was actually 8am back home! LOL
 We got dressed, ate breakfast, and made sure we were at the Bus depot by 8:30am. We arrived at the front entrance to Tokyo Disneyland just in time! It was already crowded, but because we already had our etickets we lined up with those that also already had their tickets and went right in without a long wait in line! Yippee!

As soon as we entered Sam wanted me to rent a motorized wheelchair, thank goodness too. It was fairly easy to rent one and I had to learn how to use it, considering the dials were in Japanese! But, the staff were very nice and made sure we knew what to do. We could see the castle from the entrance and it was just surreal. Sara was so excited she couldn't keep still!
 We wanted to take photos with the Disney Characters, but the line to take a photo with Minnie was just ridiculous! So Sam snapped this shot!
 Just before going into the Bizarre, we found this cute Japanese girl dressed so kawaii, I made sure Sam took a shot of the girls with her!
 My shot below, the girls walked away from her so quickly, I didn't get a chance to capture the moment!!
 The Bizarre, filled with many shops, restaurants and people everywhere!!
 Gorgeous spring flowers too! The theme was "Easter"!

We decided to start with "ToonTown". Sara spotted a play area just before going to Minnie Mouse's House!
 Inside Minnie's House!
 Afterwards, the girls went into "Chip N Dale's Tree House"!
 Our first ride of the day, "The Gadget's Go Coaster". It was so much fun and the girls loved it, especially Sara! She even put her hands up in the air as the ride went down, truly a first for her!!
 Then, on to "It's a Small World"!



We decided to head to "Dumbo's" ride, but just before heading over there we were stopped by a Parade!

We wanted to do the "Big Thunder Mountain" ride, but there was a wait, and we decided to use a fast pass to go on. Only a 45min. wait. So, onto "Alice's Tea Cup" ride to kill time. It was a short wait for it and I decided to sit this one out and watch Sam, Taby and Sara! Lucky I did! Sam ended up feeling sick from that ride!!LOL

 Then, to Dumbo ride, and back to Big Thunder Mountain!
 We decided to eat lunch and had Pizza's and potato cakes. Yum! Then, we stay out of the sun and relaxed while Sam and Sara watched the same parade pass thru! As I sat watching the parade and people watching as well, I noticed many of the little girls wearing Princess character dresses, and women wearing these really cute tulle or tutu style skirts! I even saw people carrying popcorn filled containers, in "Mr. Potato Head", "The Alien" and "Baskets" or even Mickey designed containers!


We then decided to go to "Cinderella's Castle". Neither Sara nor Taby have ever been. I went when I was 7yrs. old. I found out Sam had never been to it either?!
 We went into a hallway and an elevator took us to the next floor showcasing different parts of Cinderella's story and artwork created in her theme!
video
Above, a short movie of the photo above! and Below, another video of a different art! So cool!

Then, we decided to head to "Buzz Light Year's Astro Blaster"! Sadly, it was crazy worse than some of the other rides, so we decided to take a fast pass, which was a 2 hour wait. That's how popular this ride was!! So, we walked and saw "Monster's Inc." But that area was closed! Ugh, so sad too! Instead, we rested snacked a bit and went into the Haunted Mansion ride, Sam took Sara to the "Grand Circuit Raceway".
 Mickey Mouse shaped nuggets!


We rode a few more rides and went back around to "WesternLand" and found the "Mr. Potato Head" popcorn kiosk there! I forgot to mention we also go Taby a cute Disney themed Tulle Skirt! I will post a photo of it later! I made sure she wore it too!
 The was setting over Disney land and we decided to stay the whole day... and we were so glad we did too! There was an "Electric Light Parade" and "A Laser Light" Show on the castle!!


video

 One of our last rides was on Buzz Light Year! You are able to shoot at targets while moving thru space to try to get Zurg. It was so much fun, Sara and Taby scored 2600, I scored 8700, and Sam beat us all with a high score of 70,400!

video
 We headed out to the Bizarre, in hopes of buying a few more goodies, and also to eat some dinner. We had hotdogs and fries. Headed back to the place where we rented the electric wheelchair and turned it in. In the end, it was a successful adventure! Sara will never forget, and neither will we! We got back to our hotel room about 11pm! Time for bed, wake up, pack for our return home...
