x-posted from other comms... sorry for any repeats.
I'm a children's English teacher in Japan. Over the past three years, I have accumulated a lot of great teaching material. Some stuff I made, some I bought. Much of it was brought from the US when I returned from vacation. Last night, someone stole two bags from my car. They contained most the class materials that I use everyday. So of course, I need to replenish my stock. I'm in a bit of a tight spot financially right now, so I need to do it as cheaply as possible.
Might be a long shot, but does anyone know of any websites that ship to Japan at a reasonable price, where I can buy children's games and learning material? For example, I had a Candyland game from America, some ABC flashcards, several Go-Fish games, memory games, that kind of thing. Amazon.co.jp's prices are pretty steep, and their selection of English stuff is limited. I'm particulary bummed about the Candyland game, as I had JUST brought it back from the states...
So yeah... websites that ship to Japan, and sell ENGLISH versions of educational games/etc. and won't cost me an arm and a leg. It is VERY hard to find this stuff at reasonable prices in Japan. I often make my own materials, which is cheaper, but the real deal is usually much sturdier and more appealing to the kiddies.
