Little Twin Stars Name Cards Ink Stamps in Carry Case
This vintage Little Twin Stars stamp set by Sanrio includes four stamps and two ink pads in a small plastic box or carry case. Attached to the handle of the case is a pink plastic chain with a clear pouch to hold name cards.
The box is made of translucent pink plastic and has the Little Twin Stars logo on the front. It also shows Kiki and Lala.
There are four rubber stamps inside, the handles of the stamps feature Kiki, Lala, an elephant, and a lamb. The stamp handles don't show what image the rubber stamp will make, the corresponding handle shapes and images are as follows:
Kiki - Kiki & Lala
Lala - A bear
Elephant - Lala
Lamb - Two chicks
There are two small ink compartments covered with a plastic lid to prevent them from drying out. The stamp pads have dried up, but the foam is still in good condition, so they could easily be revived with some ink pad refill drops.
It's rare to find this stamp set with the name card pouch still attached, and there's even one card left. The clear pouch shows Kiki and Lala on the front and says "Name Cards." The name card itself is pink on one side with a ribbon and stars motif. The other side is blue and has lines for Name, Address, and Telephone Number. There's also a pink heart that says "Stamp" where you can stamp the image of your choice.
The box has some scratches and shows some wear from age. There's also a small crack on the bottom, as shown in the photos. The designs on the lid are in good condition. The stamps have been used and have a little ink around the edges.
The box is undated, but this stamp set is from the early 1980s.
