Noranekoland Stickers

This set of Sanrio Noranekoland stickers dates from 1989. It features three cats: brothers Kuro and Tora and sister Mike.

Tora must be the tiger-striped cat, Mike is the calico (calicos are almost always females) and Kuro is the black and white one. I never saw this character in the 80s, and I suspect it was not common outside of Japan.

Let's Chat Pencil Case

This plastic "Let's Chat" pencil case is by Sony Creative Products and features Penjamin Penguin. It's dated 1982. On the back it is also marked Expression.

I never saw a lot of Sony Creative Products items growing up in the 80s, but I did have a Let's Chat notebook that I remember getting in a dollar store-type place.
