TOYS Water Turtle Strap X Magnet Gashapon - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Turtles are probably immortal. Along with anecdotal evidence from our forebears in the Far East and this NYT article, NCS has owned a bunch of turtles in the States for nearly 3 decades now. They're still as lively and boisterous (especially around lunch time and dinner time) as ever and they'll likely outlive us by at least a century.

Turtle toys aren't too common in Japan but we generally grab a few factory cases whenever they're released just for our own pleasure. Japanese manufacturer Kitan Club has announced a set of Water Turtle Strap X Magnet gashapon which feature red-eared sliders and albino sliders. Some of the rascals are hiding in their shells while others are walking towards some unseen destination. A strap is tethered to each turtle and a magnet allows for adhesion to metallic surfaces. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late August 2010 at US$15.90 per set of five.
