US Postal Service on Extended Holiday

U.S. stock markets and the U.S. Postal Service are closed today in honor of Gerald R. Ford who passed away on December 26, 2006.

Please note that all orders that are shipping by USPS Priority Mail or USPS Express Mail will be dispatched tomorrow once the Postal Service returns to a normal operating schedule. Thanks for your attention.

Animal Crossing Alarm Clock

Throw away your Snoopy or Flintstones alarm clock and replace it with a stylish Animal Crossing timepiece. Choose from three character styles as follows:

» Silver Clock featuring Tanukichi aka Tom Nook
» Yellow Clock emblazoned with the image of Totakeke
» Pink Clock whose face is decorated with the kitty named Bouquet

Each clock measures 8cm or 3.14" in diameter and stubby legs keep it stable on a table or night stand. Two hands tell time while a third hand runs down the seconds. A fourth hand may be set to trigger the alarm. A single AA battery (not included) keeps the clock ticking.

Pricing is set at US$10.50 per clock. If ordered alone, NCS will ship with USPS Priority Mail for a flat-rate of US$5 within the United States.

Animal Crossing Face Pouch

Japanese manufacturer Sol International makes use of their Animal Crossing license by releasing general-use storage pouches. The lovable mugs of five furry Animal Crossing characters serve as the faces for the pouches which measure approximately 10cm in diameter.
The petite size of the pouches basically ensure that they'll be used exclusively to store coins, candy, NDS game cards, and other small items. A snap-lock clasp on the top of each pouch seals the contents inside and a lengthy strap allows for easy portability.

Animal Crossing Hand Puppets

Puppeteers and street theater performers may find a new act with Sol International's line-up of Animal Crossing Hand Puppets. Crafted from a mixture of pliable plush material and cloth, the hand puppets are designed to twitch to the movement and rhythm of one's fingers. Your pinky and thumb serve as the engines for the puppet's arms and the other fingers move the head. Pop two Animal Crossing puppets on both hands and spout some rubbish impromptu dialogue for your own private pleasure and amusement.
For truly ambitious puppeteers, NCS recommends that you learn a little ventriloquism and practice your ability to make squeaky animal voices. Once your Animal Crossing act is honed like a fine-tuned instrument, open up a show and charge admission. We're so there if you're performing in New York City and comp us. All preorders ship today and new orders are welcome at US$10 per hand puppet from NCS.

Silicon Cover DS Lite

The Silicon Cover DS Lite consists of a top and bottom portion which are connected with hinges. Installation is very simple and once installed, the cover wraps around the entire NDS and provides a pliable and protective skin to guard against potential dangers. Openings that are cut into the cover allow for easy access to the various ports and inputs on the NDS Lite unit. Three colors are in stock and available for shipping today - white, pink, and black.
