This is the Drummer Tanuki from Kittynaut and My Hinamatsuri (Girls Day) collaboration project.

Girls Day is a Holiday in Japan held on March 3rd, where the family puts up a display doll set to promote a happy healthy life for the girls of the family.

Tanuki are well known in folklore for their large scrotums (symbolizes full coin purses.) They are also known for being fun loving tricksters; because of these we chose the Hishi pattern (symbolizes prosperity and impending ill fortune). Be careful with this guy -- while he's fun to be around, he's pretty mischievous!

We Also Recommend

Pins are inherently handmade items, this means that in general they will have minor flaws. 

Quality definitions:

        ⬢ Collector*: perfect pin         ⬢ Standard**: minor flaws such as (but not excluded to) minor scratches, minor underfills, minor specs, and screen printing slightly misaligned         ⬢ Seconds***: more noticeable flaws such as (but not excluded to) larger scratches, poorly mixed enamel, missing enamel, larger specs, significant under fills, tarnished metal, missing enamel, significantly foggy clear or stained glass enamel.

Please note:

*The chances of a "perfect pin" without any flaws is between 0%-5% per batch of pins.  I grade the pins with this in mind. To avoid the extreme stress of not being able to meet this expectation of perfection, I often do not provide collectors quality. I choose instead to not grade for collectors and bundle anything that may be considered collectors in with the standards.

**Please note on Clear Enamel Pins that bubbles are considered Standard quality as they are unavoidable.

***While seconds pins are inherently "flawed" I would not consider these flaws to be so noticeable that the pins are unwearable.. There will be no issues like a broken pins, or a broken/missing back posts.
