As well as helping to organise the Worldwide Culture Swaps I love to take part (even though Freddy isn't yet 3 years old!), and I have to say that this package that I received from Japan is very very special to me.
It was sent by a lovely blogger friend Lulu - you should check out her blog if you are interested in learning more about day to day Japanese culture.
I think that the reason I love it so much is that the package was absolutely full of things for me to enjoy as well as Freddy. For example, I have a real thing for rubber stamping so I was tickled pink to find some wonderful little transport stamps inside and Freddy is obsessed with trains so to find several high speed train related items was perfect for him!
Here's a list of what was inside:
- High speed train clothing patches
- Wooden ball toy
- Japanese stickers
- Sushi shaped erasers
- High speed model train
- Kawaii erasers
- Wooden spinning tops
- Train buttons
- Origami birds (made by Lulu!)
- Lots of sweets and goodies
- Origami book
- Traditional craft (I'll show this in more detail soon)
- Origami paper
- Rubber stamps
- Training chopsticks
- Bento lunchbox and accessories
There are so many great things in this package that I will have to spread the descriptions over a few posts!
If you want to know more about these exchanges and how you can take part have a look at the Worldwide Culture Swap page.
