what could it be? ;)
The Outback Koalas are modelling today, as they'll be using these sets to boost the upcoming opening of their as-yet-unnamed cafe!
Hello Kitty Coffee Shop - Set 9 of 12
Set 9 of the Hello Kitty Coffee Shop series contains a sweet little shopping bag, a bag of the HK House Blend coffee and a coffee tumbler. I love the detail on the coffee packaging, as the bag looks creased in a very genuine way. The lid of the coffee tumbler has a lifting lever, to prevent spills. Very cute, but I was slightly disappointed with the lid - as it wasn't of particularly high quality, and I can see the glue. I get the impression that the Hello Kitty sets are of a slightly lower calibre than that of the Rilakkuma sets. No biggie though.

Rilakkuma Chocolate Cafe - set 2 of 6
This set is pretty darn cute - The cake stand is lovely, and the handle for lifting the cover is in the shape of a bear. There's also a trims sort of thing, a gorgeous big plate, a golden spoon and a huge cake slice.

Rilakkuma Chocolate Cafe - set 4 of 6
I love this one... The chick is really sweet, and I think Annabelle and Michelle are going to take speedy possession of it. There's lots of lovely pieces, such as a character-adorned fork.

|Manly enough for you, Charles?|
Rilakkuma Chocolate Cafe - set 5 of 6
The final set... This one is lovely too, with two beverages, two cakes, a tray and a bag for your pastries. The lids for the drinks are very realistic - they look like shrunken versions of starbucks!

Re-ment is adorable, and http://www.modes4u.com/ is an awesome place to start your collection. I'd go for the Rilakkuma sets personally, as I think they're a lot cuter and better quality than the hello kitty ones, but each to their own. Overall, I'm just very happy, and the Outbacks are too - they're all stocked up for a very successful cafe opening!
