L.L.Bean and Studio Ghibli have teamed up for more merchandise.
First up are two different bags with Princess Mononoke themes. Do you recognize the reference? One has the Forest Spirit in its deer form during the day, and the other shows the Forest Spirit in its night form. Both bags also have glow in the dark accessories.
In addition to the bags, there are new keychains of Totoro and Kiki’s black cat Jiji sitting in little boots.
The bags are 12,000 yen each (almost $115), and the keychains are 1,800 yen (about $17). They officially go on sale this Saturday, the 5th, and will be available at the Donguri Republic website.
