Ahhh! I hope you guys enjoy this post! โœจ
I put quite a bit of effort into it from start to finish. I spent more time editing than I would have liked due to poor indoor lighting, but it was a good challenge. ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท
Anyway, here are some comparisons of my fluffies alongside some famous Hakus, the G5527 and G5524. ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–Œ I also included the brush numbers and their corresponding engraving color. ๐ŸŽจ
Hopefully, this will help those of you interested in future Takeda purchases, but would just like a quick reference. ๐Ÿ˜˜
Please let me know if you have any questions! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™
I hope everyone had a great weekend! ๐Ÿ‘ช We sure did after enjoying family time together at the park. It was 79 degrees and sunny out. Just gorgeous. โ˜€๏ธ

Yamashiroya. 5 floors of products, toys, models, games, etc. It was incredible and mind-blowing. All of my nerd friends and family would be dying if they were in here. Something for everyone, young and old. I cannot even begin to capture the depth and size of how much this place had in it. Itโ€™s a must see if you visit Tokyo. Itโ€™s also very well organized and exceptionally clean. .

Thank you to Toshiya @fudejapan @toshiya.fukuma for his help and information on where I could buy this Mickey Mouse kokeshi doll for Damian! ๐Ÿญ๐ŸŽŽ We made a special trip to Ueno for this little guy and it was a huge success!
The pop-up stand will only be there from April 18th-30th. I saw the pictures Toshiya posted and knew I needed to get one ASAP as a keepsake for Damianโ€”who is obviously thrilled. ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ตโค๏ธ
We told him he had to be gentle with Mickey, and he was! He understood when we explained that he would have to go on a shelf because heโ€™s fragile. I was surprised he didnโ€™t cry about it or anything. My little boy is growing up so fast. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’™

Shibuya tonight. Never ceases to amaze me how many people are always at Shibuya Crossing. Look at that sea of people! Weather was about 78 degrees. So nice. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž
We had Coco Ichi for dinner and it was literally the best Iโ€™ve ever had. Weโ€™ve been getting takeout so having it served hot verses kinda warm by the time it gets home was great. The spice level was 2, just enough to have your mouth burn and nose run as the intensity builds over time, but not too much that you canโ€™t enjoy the flavor. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Kyle and I were in heaven. I imagine Damian was too because he ate almost his whole plate, something he hardly does. ๐Ÿ›
We then went to the arcade after. ๐Ÿ‘พ We won a Pikachu tissue box cover. Some poor girl almost had it drop but decided to leave. We felt bad and I told Kyle had she not left and we got it, I would have gone up and gave it to her. ๐Ÿ˜ข We kinda kept looking around hoping she would return but she didnโ€™t. (Funny note, you can ask the workers to rearrange a toy or box you want if itโ€™s not in a good position. Or if you want a different item. Iโ€™ve seen it a few timesโ€”including tonightโ€”where the worker will open the glass for the person, set the box how itโ€™s supposed to be and then lock it again. Trust me, it doesnโ€™t improve your chances any but at least you can work harder for something you want! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ)
Kyle and Damian had fun playing race car games and MarioKart together.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐ŸŽฎ

Part 2. More toys and figurines. I would have bought a Godzilla Kitty in a heartbeat but it said โ€œNot for Sale.โ€ Maybe one of a kind or something. Anyway, this little toy place made me think of @pshuell, and @johnathanrroberts for the Blythe dolls. .

We had a really fun time just looking around last night. Store had 8 floors, per usual for most shopping centers like this. I would have died about 10 years ago at some of the Lolita outfits. Definitely makes me miss @johnathanrroberts and our Lolita photo shoot we did. Hard to believe that will be 10 years ago in the fall. Anyway, very cool. Toys, Godzilla, Gundams, you name it.

We went to a new store this evening and boy did they have a lot of cool stuff! An amazing selection of umbrellas and parasols. I purchased a different one than this, but not before catching a selfie. ๐Ÿ˜‰โ˜‚๏ธ

I want to take new brush pics but have been so busy catching up from being sick and totally off-kilter from our schedule last week. ๐Ÿ˜“ I havenโ€™t been that sick in a long time, so Iโ€™m glad itโ€™s basically done.
Anyway, enjoy my favorite fluffies from when my silver 8SST brush joined the crew. I wonโ€™t stop photographing this bunch! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Iโ€™m just still so in awe! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’ฟ๐Ÿ“€๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ(<<All the colors! ๐Ÿ™Š)
I call these my โ€œTwo Pencil Setsโ€โ€”as I think of the 3 on the right, as being very distinct from the newest 4 on the left, hence why the orange weasel liner is still with the 2 canadian squirrel fluffies. ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿฟ
These are so pleasing to use and look at! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ซ Takeda is truly incredible. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ That bears repeating, always! ๐ŸŒบ
Hope everyone is having a better week now that weโ€™re out of Mercury Retrograde. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’•

Japan has a lot of nifty little things. These magnetic Pinwheel magnets are adorable. Iโ€™m always in need of catch-allโ€™s and sometimes sauce dishes (3 bubbles) really fit the bill....they were in with the small food dishes, and look like some Iโ€™ve seen before, so Iโ€™m pretty sure thatโ€™s what theyโ€™re meant for. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Had Taco Bell for the first time in 6 months and let me tell youโ€”it was delicious and totally hit the spot. ๐ŸŒฎ They had a limited menu but all of the essentials. I had a Crunchwrap Supreme and normally they are kinda gross but of course, this one tasted amazing today. ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฏ
Kyle was away for the day to Hiroshima.  That is not a small journey for one day. About a 4 hour train ride there and 4 hours back.  He works so hard. ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ They donโ€™t just send anyone to be an expat thatโ€™s all I got to say. Heโ€™s an exceptional engineer with an incredible work ethic. Very proud. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ He was so beat when he got home but we had time to watch one episode of our show together (rewatching The Knick S2.) ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œ
In other news, D and I have been sick. ๐Ÿ˜ท
Yesterday and Sunday were the worst of it for me. Sneezing, running nose, congestion, headache. Starting to get better. Dโ€™s pretty much there. Going to be more diligent about D washing his hands and me wiping them out in public since he had it first.๐Ÿšฐ๐Ÿ›
Also, this Mercury Retrograde can hurry up and be done.  I donโ€™t put all my stock in astrology but let me tell you, this one has been a B. Anyway, good ole Taco Bell made it all better today. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I had a great time with Damian...he was a very good boy and walked very far with me carrying him intermittently. (And actually, I believe this is the first time we took the train together without Kyle. Usually itโ€™s been me, me and Kyle, or all 3 of us.)
Iโ€™m glad we got out of the house today despite being sickly. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ  #tacobelljapan #tacobellabroad #tacobell #damian #babyd #makingithappeninjapan
