Sentimental Circus September 2014 Release

センチメンタル サーカス 

「あやつり森の赤ずきんテーマ」


Sentimental Circus - Little Red Riding Hood theme

This is the 14th release of Sentimental Circus. This "Little Red Riding Hood" is the side show in the midst of the usual circus act and it is also Shappo's first attempt at puppetry. In the act, Shappo is the Little Red Riding Hood; Toto, Pigu and Mamo are acting as the wolves; Kuro and Poni are acting as Grandma. This marks the start of a little sad fairy tale.

To our surprise, the book look a like is actually a pouch! We will be bringing this item in! It's really creative to turn the book into a pouch! The tote bag also looks very dainty as usual but the addition red ribbon makes the bag pop.

Shappo looks so cute as Little Red Riding Hood and Toto doesn't even look like a big bad wolf to us. He looks so harmless. We are definitely getting some of these plushies to our store for sale :)

Sentimental Circus's No name Garden Theme
センチメンタルサーカス 名もない花園テーマ

One night, after the closing of the circus show, while packing up the tent, they found a ring of wilted flowers beside them. Tears started flowing and when these tears dropped on the wilted flowers, these flowers seems to come back to life and flew everywhere in the tent. The tent is quickly filled with flowers and transformed into a flower garden.

This theme was released in March 2014, Spring season and it explains why in this series, purple butterflies, tassels and flowers are seen everywhere on their items.

 As Sentimental Circus are more for the ladies, the card case and hair accessories are made to be more feminine and dainty looking. Especially the scrunchie that looks gorgeous!

We had mixed feelings for this purple Shappo plush as we are more used to the pink Shappo. But the napping pillow looks very very comfortable.
