Burton to Release Doraemon Kids’ Snowboards
Snowboarding equipment company Burton will be releasing a series of Doraemon-themed kids’ snowboards, titled “Doraemon After School Special”, in mid-September.
The snowboards are being released to commemorate the 80th birthday of Fujiko F. Fujio, Doraemon’s co-creator. Doraemon appears on both the front and back of the snowboards, which are intended for beginning snowboarders and feature a high-stability design that prevents tumbles and falls. The boards include a set of easily removed bindings.
The snowboards are available in blue and yellow varieties, and come in 80, 90, and 100 centimeter sizes. Each snowboard retails for 29,600 yen.
