Surprise! Boxes From Japan

Limited Time Only

Japan is famous for many things: pop-up stores and limited edition goods high on that list. If you fall in love with something, you better grab it fast, otherwise it'll slip between your fingers. That's why Robot Flyer Surprise! boxes are only available to purchase for one month, we can't get these items ever again!

Robot Flyer Surprise! box items must meet our Insuta-bae インスタ映え scale. Items may include edibles (vegan), toys, electronics, something practical and just as likely something ridiculous. It's impossible for us to know what will go in the boxes until right before they are shipped, so you need to trust us.

Our curation process is rigorous. Every day we scan Japanese pop-culture websites to see what's hot. Every few days we walk to our favorite shops and through neighborhoods around Tokyo to observe what locals are wearing and buying.


"1000 Points of Otaku Cred"

I had fun with the Robot Flyer package so much thanks! I’m now the proud owner of a sushi cat and my bathroom contains an amazing skeleton with his own mini toilet. I even put the Cup no Fuchiko on a model I 3D-printed recently because of that =+1000 points of otaku cred.”
