Having a look around Amazon Japan the other day I came across a box set of Mr Men books which are selling for around 17,000 yen. Convert this into Australian dollars and it’ll set you back $200. Ouch! ><
Now contrast this cost with the $60 we paid for the same box set in Target while back in Australia on holiday. Even if you bought it and shipped it around the world with 50% postage you’d still be paying a lot less than $200.
Someone’s making a bit of money somewhere.
