|There are so many great Home Decor items from Japan. It is so unfortunate that they are so rare. With many fans having a "Sonic Room" a lot of these items would really help give it a totally Sonic look. This page will contain both 1990s classic items, and SA style modern items too. New old things keep being discovered!|

|Here's a closer look at the 1998 wall calendar for Sonic.
It's called "Sega Calendar 1998", but really, it seems to just have Sonic in there. Each page appears to have 2 months worth of dates on it. The art has a 'cg-like' style to it, all with no background on bright white paper. The look is bright & airy, with an occaisional 'splashed in' detail, like a tropical leaf, a swirl of sand, row of rings or even water/sunset. The top-down view one looks like Sonic running on snow with a hazy winter shadow to the side. The very clean and arty design makes this a fashionable calendar...even if it's out of date, it's still nice art to decorate with. Photos by @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram
|Here is a tall, square, 'tin type' Sonic themed box. It's probably not actual tin, but rather a sort of satiny finish aluminum of some kind. The lid has the classic Sonic face embossed into it. The Sega copyright is underneath. The box is basically square, but rather tall instead of the usual low/flatter type.|
|But, what is the box for? Was there something originally inside, or is this just a Sonic themed container for your home or desk accessory use? discovered by @JapanAnimePosters on Instagram|
|Is this a towel, or is it a sleeping bag?
It's difficult to tell, and the photo is very old. This is from the 90s, as you can tell by the 'segasonic' there on the front. It uses an unusual art of him too, look how he's leaning, pointing, and has one arm crossed over onto the pointing arm. That's super unusual...was this art even used on anything else at all? The black half/side of the item has "Sonic the Hedgehog" written in an odd way, where the word is broken up onto 3 lines, & then set in columns. It's a pretty big piece, as you can see by the texture of the carpet/bed sheet it's been spread on. Write in if you know what this is.
|Here's a real cute mug!
This was made for Sonic 2 in Japan. It's a mug that stars JUST Tails! Having a solo character on something that's not 'just Sonic', isn't that common in this older era. However, it's good move, because look how cute the art is for him they have used. He's super cheerful looking & doing a peace sign (or number 2 for Sonic 2) The Sonic 2 logo is blow him & he's in a ring shape with his name at the top.
The box for the mug is black, with Sonic in a star ring and the logo. The box for all the mugs of this time was the same, no-matter what the design on the item inside was. Japan was pretty big on mugs for a while, so it makes sense.
The mug itself is a plain, white ceramic with smaller size handle.
