    New Collectibles From Ensky

    Ensky is one of the many companies we work with to deliver amazing collectibles straight from overseas to fans across the United States. They hold many IP's (intellectual property) under their belt, and we are very excited to announce the newest collectibles from them featuring characters from Demon Slayer, Kirby, and Studio Ghibli.

    Let's take a look!

    Demon Slayer

    Demon Slayer is continuing its current season on Crunchyroll (The Entertainment District Arc as of writing this blog) and what better way to celebrate than to announce new goodies of characters from the show! Ensky has recently announced new Japanese cloth (Tenugui) and puzzles featuring some of your favorite characters from the hit anime series.

    Tenugui (te=hands; nugui=wipe) are traditional Japanese cotton towels that have been a staple of the Japanese home since the 9th century.

    These multi-purpose cloths are used everyday as hand towels, dishcloths, and washcloths. They make great statement pieces as napkins, place mats, or table runners and are commonly worn as neckerchiefs or headbands. They hang elegantly on walls, providing beautiful decoration, and can serve as the perfect reusable gift wrap

    Demon Slayer tenugui measures 35x100cm (13.7x39.3in). Made in Japan. Made of 100% Cotton. There are 14 characters to choose from. Which character would you want from the lineup? Let us know in the comments below.

    MSRP $15.00 each

    If you've been enjoying the Entertainment District Arc from Demon Slayer, then check out the two new puzzles featuring the main Hashira (Tengen Uzui) featured in the season, along with the poster art for the current arc.

    These puzzles are 300 pieces and measures 26x38cm (10.2x14.9in) when completed. Each puzzle includes puzzle glue and is made from jigsaw puzzle paperboard.

    MSRP $18.00 each

    Kirby

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of Kirby, the pink puffy hero, and Ensky is releasing a beautiful 1000 piece puzzle featuring Kirby throughout the years. You can see many iterations of the lovable hero, from him sleeping in the far back, wearing a chef hat, or even taking charge with the invincible candy.

    This pink puzzle measures 51x73.5 cm when completed (20x28.9in). Includes puzzle glue.

    MSRP $36.00
