Given an excessive amount of money, I’m pretty sure I would turn into a crazy Rement collector as their miniatures are all so ridiculously cute and tiny. Since they’re sold in blind boxes, I try only to buy a box when I’d be happy to get any of the sets.
Both me and Nicolette couldn’t resist the new Sumikko Gurashi House series and unbelievably, we both got our top choice! The cleaning ghost is my favourite character, closely followed by the dustball so I love all this so much and would pay quite a lot for a full size ghost brush and dustpan.
The rest of the sets are adorable too and I would have been almost equally happy with the garden set. If you’re a Sumikko fan, take your chances at Tofu Cute.
Also on my wishlist is this upcoming Rilakkuma British Tea Time series, which is currently up for pre-order at AmiAmi and should be more widely available next month. Being British, this is of course exactly what my life is like (so fancy!) and it’s hard to choose a favourite. Maybe the sewing basket or the tea set?
If you dream of visiting a cute character cafe in Japan, you can at least have a miniature cafe in your home with the Pikachu no Komorebi Cafe series! This is one I would be tempted to get the whole lot, though I’d need a dollhouse as well for the full effect.
While miniatures are adorable, they’re not exactly useful (unless you have a display shelf) but luckily Re-Ment also creates sets with phone charms and keyrings. This Kanahei’s Small Animals Snack Mascot set is the cutest, mixing two of my favourite things: bunnies and food!
The weirder Re-Ment sets don’t always make it out of Japan but you can still browse all the craziness at Amazon Japan – use リーメント in the search box. There’s all sorts of madness in there, from the huge Poseable Skeleton range to cats in underpants.
Do you collect Re-Ment miniatures?
