06:03 pm - Hetalia Merch.
So far as I can see in APHetalia there's a lack of keychain/cell phone charms merch, but browsing Taobao for the first time I came across:

So. Very. Want. Gah.

It looks pretty official, but I haven't seen any other countries as keychains in this series so is now I don't know if  this is some fan-made product or just extremely hard-to-find official merch.  Anyone know how to register in Taobao and if this particular seller ships overseas and accepts paypal?  I tried registering but it asked me whether I wanted to register by cell number or mailing address...and being in Canada I'm not sure which I'm suppose to go with O__o

[EDIT]: Ah, after stumbling over the description I think the seller doesn't ship overseas, darn.  If I wasn't going to Japan in September where I'm pretty sure I'll be able to buy some APH merch first-hand in-stores I'd so email my family in China to get me some merch >__<

Body length pillow of China and Russia
- This one I KNOW is fanmade as I have the artist friended on deviantart, but isn't it gorgeous?  She has such amazing talent.
China cellphone strappy
- Looks fanmade/non-official, but so CUTE! 

There's also cosplay unfiorms for a bunch of the countries...around $300RMB...so...$50 CAD, wow, I probably can't even buy all the fabric I'd need for those costumes here in Canada for $50.

[EDIT3]: Hehe
S. Italy mini-plushie on chain.
America alarm clock (Saw a few for other countries too...but no Canada ;A;)
Shinatty-chan cell phone strap (Is it called Gitty in the Chinese fandom?? O_o)

And are these DOUJINS??

I need to start digging into the jargon used in Chinese anime fandoms.  同人apparently means fan-made?  And so a fellow Hetalia fan on my f-list kindly told me 同人文 is fanfics?

Also, I've seen a few times the Chinese fandom call China's panda 滚滚/GunGun (pronounced GoonGoon, not "gun" as in the weapon), is the panda's named mentioned in the official webcomic??

[EDIT5]: Whee~
France cell phone strappy
UK cell phone strappy

Looks to be by the same person who made the China cell phone strappy under Edit2.

Wow, I'm surprised people aren't all over those keychains if they're official, they're gorgeous *O* I hate that right now I have to like, extremely cut my spendings back to buying only the necessities until I get settled into my job in Japan where I'll actually have an income, grr.

I wonder if any of my cousins in China use Taobao...if they have paypal I can just send them over money to bid on stuff for me and ship it over..hm. I swear sometimes I wish Mathew would move his house closer to Kiku so we can have better access to all of Kiku's...goodies XD
