I found this Japanese amigurumi kit in a secondhand store in Northcote today. The lady in the shop warned me that all the instructions are in Japanese but I’m tempted to have a go anyway.

(Actually, there were three other kits and I’m tempted to go back and buy them too.)

The label says りんご帽のくま which means something like “apple cap bear”.

kawaii ne? (cute, huh?)
