It is no secret that we like the lovely Mr. Wonderful accessories a lot and it’s always very hard for us to avoid compulsive buying in front of the exhibitors we find in bookstores. Especially now that a new series of limited edition items have come out, mixing together two of our favourite things: cats and Japan! In fact, Mr. Wonderful’s Lucky Collection has as its protagonist a manekineko, the famous Japanese lucky cat.
The highlight of the collection (and undoubtedly our favourite) is the lovely all-pink mug in the shape of a maneki neko, complete with a cute tail. There are also a key ring and a coin purse, to keep always in your purse because useful and cute, but also as a lucky charm. For stationery lovers (here we are!), Mr. Wonderful has also thought of a series of sticky notes and a set of pens in three different colours. And you can’t miss the smartphone cover, although unfortunately only for iPhone owners. Aren’t they cute? You can buy them all on Mr. Wonderful online store.
Fun fact: manekineko has a different meaning depending on the paw raised up. If it is the left one, it is a lucky charm for business and money, vice versa it should be lucky for family and health. Even the colour of the cat has a meaning: red is against evil spirits, gold is linked to wealth, while pink is a love amulet. Did you know?
