Just wrote this up for a buddy, and decided to go ahead and post it here so I can refer back to it when the question (inevitably) arises:

People in Japan, for whatever reason, don't really seem to use eBay a whole lot.
Could be the language barrier (eBay packed up their office and left Japan), or could
be other things. Anyway, they like to use Yahoo! Japan auctions. But, it's different
from what we're used to in the US. People (by and large) are not really enthusiastic
about shipping internationally, especially to a bunch of crazy Americans. And, they
usually don't take Paypal. They tend to want to be paid by a transfer directly from
your bank to their bank.

So, if you're gonna bid on cool stuff, and especially if you don't know a lot of
Japanese, a lot of people do it through an agent.

The site I use to bid on Yahoo is Celga:

OK, it's not exactly Stitch toilet paper, it's a Stitch "tissue roll," and what you do is you get a cute character container, stick this inside, and then pull out a bit at a time, to use kinda like Kleenex.

But, it is, nonetheless, awesome.

(Yeah, it's from Japan. Did you even need to ask?)

EDIT: Here's a piccie of Stitch vomiting out some tissue.

We're thinking this translates to "Iikoto Memory." But, beyond that, we have no clue.

It's definitely something associated with the Stitch! TV show. And, it's got Stitch ears. And, it does something kewl. Don't worry, Tiki Labs will investigate.

Soybeans, or edamame, are a recent trend in Japan. Why? Um.... Dunno.

Anyways, looks like our little blue friend has got his head stuck in some bean pods.

Oh, and here is a Japanese soybean toy.

Yes, really.

We've got metric tons of "Stitch-as-cute-bunnieh" plushies, but lookee at the one on the left. HE gots leetle hornses. Looks like Stitch as billy goat, or Stitch as moo cow? The auction description is typically unhelpful, "Crane machine prize, please, no claim, no returns."

We're going to buy one and take it on our next airplane flight. "Waddaya mean, floatation vest under the seat? If it ain't got Stitch, it ain't shit!"

Don't worry, kiddies, Tiki Labs LLC will investigate!

*Yeah, we know, we know, it's a mirror on her stomach. A pink and red-bordered mirror.

Some kinda crafty stuff. Looks like it makes stuff more sparkly. And, isn't that what we need, MORE SPARKLIES?????

But this one? This is the coolest of all.

Really wanna try it out, but we're suspecting it's kiddie-sized.

Teensy Rain Stitch plush is holding a teddy bear umbrella!!! Ha!

(Even though, we wouldn't really recommend using an umbrelly that's smaller than your head.)

OMG you guys! It's a super cute little baby Stitch ... er ... something.*

And it's got a scrumpie top!

*The auction translates to "flask," which brings to mind images of us carrying shots of whiskey around in a Stitch tumbler.

Bad Stitch shot glass.
