Does anyone have a copy of Michael Ondaatje's 'The collected works of Billy the Kid' that they'd be willing to

By Tokyomama on Sunday, December 5, 2004 - 9:34 pm:

I've found a store selling KitchenAid mixers. The price is about 77,000 yen. I think I'll stick with my little hand-held mixer.
Thank you for all the suggestions.

By Monica S. on Sunday, December 5, 2004 - 7:56 pm:

Hello, I am having a baby soon and I have a pumper`s problem to solve. It seems that the prices are unaffordable for me, so I decided to use both discardable and washable...but my washing machine is almost broken!!! I am looking for cheap/free discardable pumpers (that you bought and didn`t use, etc) and a "baby-resistant" second hand washing machine. Since I live in Saitama, you can send the pumpers collect, but the washing machine would be a good deal only if you leave nearby.

Thanks a lot and also thanks for answering the ad posted before!

By Nancy on Saturday, December 4, 2004 - 11:06 pm:

Tokyomama: Many of the shops on Kappabashi are closed on Sunday it seems. I gave up on buying a kitchenaid stand mixer as the price was quite high. Instead I bought a hand mixer by Braun, and it works very well with a large bowl. There were two sets of hooks included, as well as other accessories. I was lucky to find it on sale at Ishimaru.

By Jellund on Friday, December 3, 2004 - 6:28 pm:

Bethan - I was in Bjornelund this morning and they have a lot of nice wooden puzzles, the store I usually go to is the large Harajuku one, there are two bjornelunds in Harajuku, smaller is near the crossing where Jonathans is and the larger is up past the BS Asahi tv studio. There is also a new bjornelund section in the Keio Dept Store in Shinjuku, 7th floor, the floor with all the kids stuff

By Jellund on Friday, December 3, 2004 - 6:25 pm:

To Tokyomama
Just to second what Bethan said and let you know that I saw a few kitchenaid stand mixers when I was in Kappabashi last month, cant remember how much they were though sorry.

By Bethan Hutton on Friday, December 3, 2004 - 5:46 pm:

To Tokyomama - if you're looking for any kitchen stuff which is larger than the normal mini-size for Japanese kitchens, it's worth trying the restaurant/catering wholesale district around Kappabashi (near Asakusa) - the prices are pretty reasonable, and most shops sell to individuals as well as trade buyers. You can find a map (in Japanese) and description (in rather odd English) plus some pictures of the area here:

By Tokyomama on Thursday, December 2, 2004 - 1:30 pm:

KitchenAid Large capacity Stand mixer in good condition. If anyone knows where I can get one in Tokyo, please let me know.

By Tokyomama on Thursday, December 2, 2004 - 1:29 pm:

KitchenAid Large capacity Stand mixer in good condition.

By Hotes Family on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 11:12 pm:

p.s. Thanks for all the Brio train messages, Bethan. I was also looking for them and had a field day in Seibu & Tobu Ikebukuro looking for Xmas presents. My husband might not let me loose in Hakuhinkan for fear of Brio overload, but I think we'll go and "look." Brio may be expensive but it lasts. We have my husband's 30 year old wooden tracks & they're still in daily use.

By Hotes Family on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 11:07 pm:

Atelier Niki Tiki in Hiroo Plaza (2nd floor)carries Ravensburger puzzles for young children. My 2 year old son can do some of them, some more 3-5 years. They include nature scenes, the zoo, the farm... and a few "boy" construction scenes too. I think there's a Niki Tiki (or at least a store that looked like its stock was identical) in Isetan in Shinjuku. They had the Ravensburger puzzles too. The prices aren't too bad for imports: around 750 yen. Happy hunting! - Cathy

By Bethan Hutton on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 7:09 pm:

Jigsaw puzzles for ages around 2-5 - has anyone got any their kids have grown out of? My daughter is going through a big puzzle phase at the moment, and does our entire collection almost every day, so some variety would be nice.

We would be particularly interested in European ones (Galt, Ravensburger), but less keen on the cardboard tray-type they seem to mostly have here. As we have a lot of train and fire engine-themed ones left from her big brother, some other subjects would be nice.

I'm happy to pay a reasonable price (or make a donation to this site in lieu of payment), and of course pay postage.

By Bethan Hutton on Monday, November 29, 2004 - 3:04 pm:

Brio - if you're still looking, I was in Hakuhinkan toy store in Ginza today and they have a vast new Brio area on the third floor. It's the largest selection I've seen anywhere in the world - I think they must have every item Brio makes (baby toys, all the train stuff, the Meccano-like Brio builder kits etc). Not cheap, of course, but if you're looking for a special Christmas present....

Hakuhinkan is between Shimbashi and Ginza stations.

Address: Ginza 8-8-11, Chuo-ku, Tel. 03-3571-8008

If you can read Japanese, there is a map here:

Basically it is on the corner of Ginza-dori and Chuo-dori, right next to the expressway. Most guidebooks to/tourist maps of Tokyo should mention it.

By Perla Miranda Capili on Sunday, November 28, 2004 - 10:07 am:

I am looking for a game soft for sega console and a safety bicycle helmet for my 17 month old daughter. Reasonable price or free would be wonderful.
Please contact me by e-mail if you have one available. Thanks!

By Bethan Hutton on Thursday, November 11, 2004 - 9:56 am:

Re Brio - it's a couple of years since we were in our Brio-buying phase, but these are the places around Tokyo where I have seen Brio (or Brio-compatible) trains, tracks etc in the past:

- some larger branches of Toys'R'Us, eg Toshimaen and Odaiba, but not Ikebukuro or Sunstreet Kameido. Toys'R'Us (including some smaller branches) also sometimes has some cheaper wooden trains and accessories (made in China) which are Brio compatible.

- toy departments of Takashimaya in Shinjuku, and Tobu and Seibu in Ikebukuro.

- the toy floor of Crayon House in Aoyama (book/toy/organic food building) has trains from Miki, a Swedish brand which is Brio compatible (Crayon House: (03) 3406-6409 Kita-Aoyama 3-8-15. Walk down Omotesando towards Harajuku, turn left at the Hanae Mori Building and walk one block)

- the second-floor toy shop above Meidi-ya in Hiroo also stocks Miki trains

Most of our Brio stuff was bought in the UK or Australia though - much cheaper there, particularly Brio-compatible things from the Early Learning Centre.

By Jellund on Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - 11:17 am:


I am trying to find a shop in Tokyo with a good selection of Brio train toys and tracks. The other thing on my current search list is Epsom Salts, if anyone could give me any advice on where to buy any of these things, I would be most grateful.

Kindest regards

Wanted - 4WD/off-road car, 5-10 years old, a bit battered in appearance is fine, but needs to have shaken up to date. We're looking for a small and light model (Suzuki Escudo Nomade or similar, not Landcruisers, Pajeros etc) that won't get stuck in the snow, but preferably seats 4 plus some luggage. Preferably in Tokyo/Saitama/Gunma area. Anyone have anything fitting this description for sale, or knows someone who does?

Thanks to everyone who responded to my post below. I now have a vibrating baby bouncer.


By Linda Gondo on Tuesday, October 12, 2004 - 4:24 pm:

I am wanting to buy a carpet extractor cleaner. I think this is the best way of describing it. Some people call them steam cleaners, however this is misleading as they actually don't use steam. Basically it just shampoos the carpet. They seem to be very hard to find over here. The Hoover Steam Vac 2 or something similar would be great. Scratches or marks OK, but has to be in excellent working order ie all parts and no leakages or other problems. Prefer to have a brand that can be serviced here if necessary. Any recommendations?

By Allen on Monday, October 11, 2004 - 12:04 pm:

I am looking for a baby bed/crib, preferably with a sliding side rail and storage space below. Light brown or white would be nice. The cleaner the better. Wanted before or around Nov. 30 for baby's due date. Thanks.

By Clare Humphreys on Sunday, October 10, 2004 - 2:25 pm:

Hi. I'm looking for a baby bouncer seat. Ideally I'd like a vibrating one, but will consider buying one that does not vibrate as I would like to buy one asap. Please e-mail me if you have one.

Do you have a baby gate that you no longer need? We urgently need one for our stairway which is 123 cm wide. Must be "pressure-fit" type, without any need to fasten to a wall with screws, and must have a door. Toys R Us does not carry any gate wide enough, and Akachan Honpo was out of stock of this size gate.

Thanks for the everyone's reply on my Halloween costume question. I was originally going to order from US but I have only recently asked my brother and my friend to mail me stuff and am a little sheepish asking the favour again ;-) I;ll check out a few places this week and if I can't find any suitable ones will order from US anyway.

Hallowe'en costumes - could be worth trying Tokyu Hands. They have a lot of costumes/dress-up stuff in the Shinjuku branch (next to Takashimaya Times Square), mostly adult but with quite a bit for kids as well. Not sure about the other branches.

By Natalie B on Saturday, September 11, 2004 - 11:21 pm:

I have found that Halloween costumes are quite expensive if bought in Japan since most if not all are imported from the US. If you can have a friend or a family member send you one from the US/Canada, the selection is better. I have purchased costumes from Toys R Us, National Azabu and FBC. I have also put together a costume with items from 100yen shops. I have also bought second-hand ones in different shops in Tokyo and through Tokyowithkids website. Happy Hunting!

By Spikey on Saturday, September 11, 2004 - 9:06 pm:

By Natalie B on Saturday, August 28, 2004 - 4:54 pm:

I bought my Leappad in Toys R Us a few years back. I have seen them recently but I think it depends on the store as to how extensive the product line. I have also seen them at Akachan Honpo in Gotanda, Tokyo.
Hope this helps.

Does anyone know where I can get muriatic acid, which is used for... cleaning pools and, in my case, a dilute solution is used to clean brass instruments and my french horn is due for a cleaning. I don't know what else it is used for and I have no idea how to ask for it in Japanese so I thought that I would start here. I only need about 300 ml.

Hello from the U.S. I found your webpage while surfing on the internet. I am looking for someone in Japan to purchase toys from Japan which are not available in the U.S. I would be willing to pay for this or exchange goods from the U.S. not readily available in Japan. I you know of anyone who would be able to do this could you ask them to email me please? Most of the toys are usually from a store called toys r us. The amount would not be a large volume. Maybe one or two packages per month would need to be sent.

A little about myself. I am a computer consultant in the Chicago area. I am 44 years old and have four children, all girls. My hobbys are action figure collecting and bonsai. I also like oriental items. This is why I am sending this email. So, if you know anyone who would be willing to help me out, please be so kind as to pass this message on to them.

Thanks for your time.

Just passing this along:

Call for Submissions: Mamaphonic
Do you have a toddler seat strapped in the back of the tour van? Do you write poetry while the baby naps? Have you discovered that becoming a mother has changed not only your daily life but the content of your creative work? Mamaphonic is an anthology of writing about mothering, the creative process, and reciprocity within the artistic community. The book will include confessions and conversations about the true, exhilirating, entertaining, and difficult aspects of remaining creative while raising kids.

We are seeking literary first-person nonfiction essays of 2,000 - 4,000 words. Queries are encouraged. We are interested in hearing from mothers participating in all aspects of art, writing, music, puppetry, performance, film, photography, independent publishing, or any other creative endeavor. Know someone who would be interested in this topic? Send the page to a friend.

We are seeking diverse views on subjects such as: children as muses, how an artist's daily life is changed after becoming a mother, how women balance their work and creative process with motherhood, and the specific influence of parenting on career trajectory and expectations. Although we are primarily concerned with the positive influences motherhood can have on the artistic process, we are also interested in the challenges motherhood brings to the working artist and how those challenges are met and overcome.

Edited by Bee Lavender and Maia Rossini and published by Soft Skull Press, the book will also include a compendium of practical resources for working artistic mothers. Compensation includes $50 and two review copies. The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2003.

Please forward this message extensively.

Hard copies can be mailed to:

Mamaphonic c/o Hip Mama PO Box 28870 Seattle, WA 98118
