Japan is crazy for DS-themed keychains


Seriously, they have got to be with so much keychain crap thrown around in that territory. But we really can't comment, as we do not live there and have never visited. Still though, they aren't the toy capital of the world because they're always peddling junk wares, as exhibited by the very tasteful and highly-desirable keychains pictured above.

We have no idea if those game cases actually open up, or if the DS hinges are functional, but we want them nonetheless. What about you?

That site is a nightmare to navigate. I can't find the Wii Remote charm that they showed on the Wired article. I am also looking for a cellphone chair for my desk. I got my wife a Pucca cellphone chair, but I'm a guy, so I can't use that. I'm looking for a Mario or Zelda themed cellphone chair.

Note: for those wondering, a cellphone chair is basically a small chair, normally soft, placed on a desk so you put your cellphone in it when you're at work.

I have one of the newer keychains - these appear to be the old DS, and mine has the DS lite paired with the English training game. Both the DS and the game case open up. They're pretty sweet.

People - use the site search to search for Nintendo. It works on both Strapya-world.com and Strapya.com/store.htm. (If you leave off the store.htm on the 2nd address, you get the Japanese site.)

The reason you can't find the Wii charm is because of legal issues, they called it the Nitendo W11. Notice the lack of "n." https://secure3.nexternal.com/shared/StoreFront/product_detail.asp?CS=phonestrap&RowID=22368&All=#Top

And yes, these do open. They have EXCELLENT customer service too - once one of my charms arrived broken, and they sent me out a new one without even making me send the broken one back.

I really can't find the key chains displayed in this picture, I ended up browsing the pages one-by-one and I still can't find it, is it even there?
I'd love to buy one of those (I love the original Nintendo DS model way more than the DS Lite, heh).

Thanks for the link. :)

Btw, is it me or is there just one picture, no info (apart from the little underneath the picture) and no way to buy them?

I remember when Lik-sang sold swag like this.

Since they're gone now, anyone know any other site I can order these?
