The Story of Kisu

When Eero was 10 years old, their family lived in an apartment building in Kallio. They were not allowed to bring pets there, and therefore, the family didn’t have any pets at that time. It was the 1940s and stray cats would wander in the streets in the part of the city where the Aarnios lived. Young Eero would catch these cats and carry them home in his arms to the family’s apartment on the 5th floor. Eero’s mother would let him keep the cat for one day and he loved to play with them.

Even though, later on the family ended up having a dog, Eero has always found cats charming as well. “Cat has always been a very sympathetic animal character for me”, he says. Eero has designed several dog figures and characters during his career and finally he decided it was time for the cat as well. The name Kisu was a natural choice for him as in his childhood, Kisumisu, was a common term of endearment for cats in the Aarnio family.

    Delivery of Kisu

    I ordered white Kisu and the product itself is perfect. The delivery cost was 15€, which is a normal fee for delivery to my home door. Unfortunately the package was delivered to a post office a few kilometres away and I had to travel there to get Kisu home. I phoned the courier company and they said it’s not their problem as they don’t have a delivery contract with me, but with the sender. This was quite a big disappointment and I’m not going to order more products from you with this high delivery cost and forced to travel to get the package.

    Hurmaava kisu.

    Kisu on aivan super ihana. Tätä olin jo pitkään haaveillut. Upsin kuljetus oli täysi fiasko.Ensin ilmpitettiin päivä,jolloin tuote tuodaan minulle. Kässä tapauksessa 21.7.keskiviikkona. Toimitukseen oli varattu kokonainen päivä klo 22 asti. Muutin tapaamisiani ja varustauduin odottamaan kotona sen päivän. Illalla n.18.30 tuli sp viesti, että toimitus päiva on muutettu torstaihin. Peruin siis torstain menot ja to aamulla soitin asiakaspalveluun ja minulle sanottiin, että kuljettaja soittaa minulle, ennen tavaran toimitusta. Odotin siis kotona ja olin huolettomalla mielin, koska talossamme on käytössä huoneutokohtainen ovikello. Sitten n.12.30 tuli sp viesti, että tavara on noudettavissa "Kiina keskuksesta" reilun kilometrin päästä. Minua ei oltu tavoitettu kotoa( minä siis päivystin kotona ja vahdin puhelinta). Minä olin kotona11. Hain tavaran sitten sieltä noutopisteestä 14-15 välissä iltapäivällä. Soitin asiakaspalveluun jälleen ja marmatin menettelystä. Sain kuulla, ettei kuljettajilla edes ole puhelinta, jolla ottaa asiakkaaseen yhteyttä. Sittemmin olen saanut useita muistutuksia ehkä 3 kpl siitä,että paketti pitäisi noutaa.., vaikka minulla oli se jo. Kannattais harkita toista toimittajaa. Minä ei halua olla missään tekemisissä UPSin kanssa. Muuten pidän kissasta ja kehun sitä kaikille. Teidän osuutenne hoiditte hinosti ja nopeasti asiassa. UPS tyri todella pahasti

    Hei Riitta, ikävä kuulla, että kokemuksesi UPSin kanssa ei sujunut odotusten mukaisesti, olemme erittäin pahoillamme tästä ylimääräisestä harmista! Otamme palautteesi ehdottomasti huomioon. Kiva kuulla, että Kisu on sinulle kuitenkin mieluinen!

    Kisu

    All went well. It came actually guicklier than expected. Nice package also. Kisu the cat found a place in my home jungle quite in total harmony with Nau the living red cat of the house. I am happy with Kisus story since I had such cats as a child myself too.

    Kisu

    All went just fine! Delivery was faster than promised, and Kisu is lovely. Just wondering, should there be a chance to choose an all-finnish webshop? English might drive some people away? I don’t know though..
