Re-Ment makes various blind boxes with cute little items and / or scenes of a multitude of IPs. This series is called “Sumikko Farm” featuring Sumikko Gurashi. The set exists out of 8 parts.
All the blind boxes look the same. It’ll be a surprise which one of the 8 figures / scenes you get.
On the side of the blind box are the 8 different figures / scenes displayed. You can get:
1) Crop the fields
3) The giant turnip
4) Grow cucumber
6) Break Time
7) Herb Garden
When you open the blind box you’ll find the figure / bits in plastic and a leaflet. On the leaflet is a little craft to cut out and make (which I didn’t do).
All the pieces have © San-X on them.
I got 2 sets.
6 Break Time
This set depicts a little table with food. It comes with Ebifurai No Shippo holding a tomato and a little blue guy whose name I don’t know holding an Onigiri. There is a seperate Onigiri and some sliced lemon? as well juice with its own cup and bottle with lid, and two little baskets. It contains 11 pieces. The little craft is a table cloth.
7 Herb Garden
This set depicts a little wall garden. It comes with Neko wearing an apron and a handkerchief on her head, and Zassou with a sunhat. The planter has a depiction of the Sumikko Gurashi gang embossed on the front. It comes with dirt for the planter and a little herb to place in it. It also comes with a watering can / spray bottle shaped like a penguin. It has 6 pieces. The little craft are some seed bags.
I saw this in a shop in London and thought they were cute. I never heard of Sumikko Gurashi though, but the shy creatures looked adorable and I liked the little gardening theme. I was really hoping for #3 The giant turnip, but was happy with the ones I got regardless. I also just wanted to bring back a ‘souvenir’ from London, haha! As these were blind boxes, I didn’t know which one I had till I was home.
As always the quality of Re-ments is amazing. Everything is so small yet so detailed. The food and plants looks so cute and real!
If you like small, cute little scenes / figures Re-Ment is something you may want to look into.
