Pre-release event benefits children's charities for Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefectures
Just in time for Mago no Hi ("Grandchildren's Day"), Maruko and her grandfather Tomozou are joining Kitan Club's PUTTITO series of cup-clinging toys, and there's a pre-release event for the figures that benefits children's charities.
The pre-release event takes place on October 17, 2015, at the Fujisaki department store in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Proceeds from the cup-clinger toys will go to benefit children's charities in Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefectures.
The cup-clingers come in 4 varieties: Sitting Maruko, Clinging Maruko, Hanging Maruko, and Sitting Tomozou.
Each figure is approximately 40 to 45 millimeters (1.57 - 1.77 inches) in height. The figures will be sold in gashapon machines for 300 yen ($2.50 US) per play. The general release date for the PUTTITO series Chibi Maruko-chan figures is October 18, 2015.
