Anyway, here are the cuties tugging on my heart (and purse) strings!
AHHH! I totally was wishing for Christmas Arpakasso and they MADE THEM! [flails] I want the reindeer and the snowman! These are going to be released in 3 different sizes, it seems.

It seems that San-X also has some super cute stuff coming out. This series is called Sumikkogurashi (すみっコぐらし). Loooove the plushes! So freaking cute! That little brown guy is a pork cutlet! A PORK CUTLET! OMG! SO CUTE! I love how Japan celebrates random little things like pork cutlet characters. If you hear of any sellers or websites stocking these, please let me know!
I also saw a picture on Facebook from Tamaya (kawaii seller/store in California) of some cute dog (French bulldog, maybe?) merchandise also from San-X. I couldn't find that character on the San-X website, however, so I'm not sure if it's a special exclusive line or what.
