TUPERA TUPERA GIFT BOX “Puzzle chocolate box” that makes you smile [Image 2d36230-335-61256905c89c4783e1dc-10.jpg&s3=36230-335-8cd8fb7c71b1083bb78f8da38ac0900e-1280x720.jpg
This sweet was born from the thoughts of a buyer who became a mother. As a buyer, I want to make sweets that make children smile and that are delicious to eat, play with, and decorate. If I were to make it, I would like to work with the two tupera tupera who work on the picture books I used to read with my children. Thinking about how to make people smile, we decided to make a puzzle-shaped box with a
Christmas-related character motif.
The original picture of the box, which is made by cutting and layering colorful drawing paper, down to the smallest parts. Beautiful, adorable, heart-throbbing, and smiling. We have created sweets that will make both adults and children smile, transcending barriers such as age, gender, and language. This year, a new set of 4 “gift boxes” was also born.

Combining the four boxes…
Combining the illustrations drawn on the side of the box creates a total of 5 patterns and stories. Inside the box is a foil chocolate imitating Santa, a soldier, and a snowman. Let’s enjoy the time waiting impatiently for Christmas day while stuffing our cheeks with chocolate.
“Gift Box” that also serves as a stage
By arranging all four, the fun of the puzzle box, “playing in combination”, will be at its best. It is also a perfect gift for children and families with children.
Moreover, the playfulness of tupera tupera is that this gift box is not just a container. The stage itself becomes a stage, and you can enjoy the picture-story show using the attached paper dolls. In addition, you can draw your favorite face on the paper doll and create an original story. It is a holiday limited sweet that spreads the fun depending on your ingenuity.

Shobu Gakuen “Ornament” that connects children’s smiles with art [Image 6d36230-335-3448b7cf66ee6f952019-9.jpg&s3=36230-335-ac987bcda3c6d925db495b07b7814769-1280x720.jpg
Every year, I collect my favorite ornaments little by little. And it is an item that was created based on the desire that you can enjoy the holidays while looking at the decorated tree and looking forward to Christmas day.
The ornament cans are drawn by users of “Shobu Gakuen”. Based on the works of the three artists, which express themes such as Christmas motifs and things that make you feel the bright future of the earth and children, we added newly written characters. Inside, there are chocolates with holiday motifs such as Santa Claus and coins. [Image 7d36230-335-a69e3c3e0764ba12ca98-16.jpg&s3=36230-335-3e36561f5b52421d0891e411f57757c5-2500x1855.jpg

“Socks” in fair trade cotton with embroidered art
One of the works created every day at Shobu Gakuen is embroidery. There is no one in the world that is the same as the design that is applied to each stitch, one stitch at a time. I wanted to use this as a holiday ornament, so I made Christmas socks with a specially drawn motif. “First of all, it’s best to have fun. But I thought that if everyday shopping leads to a wonderful future,” the buyer in charge said.

We use a soft fabric that is slowly woven with an old machine in India so that the embroidery can live. This is fair-trade cotton grown by the local historic cotton farmer union “Chetna Organic”. In addition, the socks themselves have the “International Fairtrade Certification Label”, which is a mark that products made with proper labor are traded at a fair price.
Inside, you will be excited while eating, such as “What should I eat next?” A variety of sweets, red for red socks and green for green socks.
