About the Ippo series >
Stationery series for schoolchildren “Ippo!” Is a stationery series that has been improved by listening to the needs of parents of elementary school children who started in 2009, and incorporating them into products. I went back to the starting point and thought about stationery that is easy for children to learn. Specifically, in consideration of the physique, dexterity and interest of children, we reviewed the size, shape, and method of use, which are common sense as stationery. Ippo! series has commercialized all 19 species.
