Kirby and Waddle Dee Tumblers Will Appear Next Week

Takarajima revealed new tumblers modeled after Kirby and Waddle Dee from the Kirby video game series. The company will release these glasses in July 2024 with a price tag of 2,992 yen (~$19).

These tumblers will be around 11.3 cm (4.45 in) tall with a top side diameter of 8 cm (3.15 in). The company will make them with vacuum insulation, so they can retain the drink’s temperature—both hot and cold—for a longer time than ordinary mugs.

Takarajima claimed that under a room temperature of 20°C (68°F), the tumbler can retain 3°C (37.4°F) water with ice blocks for six hours. In another test case with 200mL of 96°C (204.8°F) hot water, it can stay above 40°C (104°F) for about an hour.

The tumblers will start appearing at most FamilyMart outlets across Japan on July 11, 2024. However, Takarajima also opened pre-orders for both items on its own web store. The site has a WorldShopping widget that also supports these items, so people residing outside Japan can also place orders for these items at around $18.56 apiece.

Kirby and Waddle Dee are two of the most popular characters from the Kirby game series, and they have also been featured together in other merchandise lineups. In late June 2024, iFace released iPhone cases and accessories based on both characters exclusively in Japan.

The new Kirby and Waddle Dee tumblers will be available on July 11, 2024.
