NICI 20th Anniversary - Frog - Part II  

Today we shall continue our unfinished topic, NICI 20th Anniversary. At this part 2, I am going to pick Mr Frog (Otto), let him introduce himself..

This is the complete series of NICI 20th Anniversary box-set overview (25cm come with Box and nice ribbon tide at the box.)

Front view of the box, very fine scratch art of Mr. Frog (Otto). It is cute and with an unique pattern design.

The back of the box stamped with golden frog :), it is a very fine box design specially for NICI Collectors, you won't be regret after you getting one of it.

Here is the Unique Ribbon design from 20th Anniversary for Mr. Frog (Otto).

Mr Frog (Otto) is holding his birth certificate, you can read the rest of the bio detail of Mr. Frog below. The only thing miss out here is Unique Serial No to identify on each of the birth certificate, then each of them will be unique for all the NICI collectors around the world :).

This time I get to have plastic NICI logo at the bottom of the leg. The cotton type NICI logo I think is for first early batch version, and this plastic NICI Logo is for the continues batch version

Oh ya, don't forget about Special Golden Tag. That is the signature of NICI 20th Anniversary Tag.

One more thing specially with Mr. Frog, :) he got the longest leg compare to all 3 of other 20th Anniversary friends... hehe.

Cuddly Kingdom - Classic NICI

p/s: emm.. Why I feel Mr. Frog looks like University Professor now? Or even a Lawyer looks?

Is It Real? or Fake? Part I (Snow Cat)  

Quote from Chat Box: "

nicilover: cos apparently those items are limited editions and is no longer around.
nicilover: hi, i saw a website that sells nici ski bears and the candy love hippo, do you know how to see if they are genuine?"
Today we going to solve some mystery, a mystery about real or fake... :)

My reply to nicilover, The NICI Ski Bears I never seen before. May be it is custom product requested by other company. You can refer to here, under "You Own Collection", or "Customer Make Product". Candy Love Hippo are pass few years ago valentine collection if not mistaken.

Ok let talk about is it real or fake?

Watch out this, you can see that the leg is kind of funny. The workmanship on sewing the leg part are poor.

Well, over here you see funny face which i circled with blue ink pen. Check carefully with the sewing part (face potion), you can see it some how out of line.

My conclusion on above picture, they both are not genuine NICI plush.

This is another real sample of Fake Hippo selling at some gift shop (They event have purple Hippo!)

Now the Snow Cat turn
Do you notice the Orange Tag? That Orange NICI Tag is actually Sample Product (Note: they do write a note there, "Do Not Sell" "Sample Product"). I saw it once before. I Hope NICI Official can help me clarify this :)

This is the actual Product NICI Tag, it is white in color.

My Conclusion on the NICI Show Cat is, the seller may be using the sample product given by NICI China Factory. And the product above are sample product.

Overall, I don't trust website is selling true genuine products. (at least 99% are non-genuine, except the 1% are sample... :D).

Anyway I still recommend buying from NICI Official outlet, or Cuddly Kingdom. The price will not be as cheap as you see it from the china website, but..! You can judge the quality by your own eye, and feel the touch of it.. :)

p/s: Malaysia NICI, hei! when are you going to bring all the latest NICI series to Malaysia? Singapore already have Gorilla, Racoon, Koala Bear, and .... some more! Why you Malaysia NICI are so slow in updating your own product?


NICI Lovely Mouse For Valentine Days

p/s: Damn, I hate NICI Malaysia. They haven't bring in my Gorilla, Raccoon and many more series :(
