Probably one of the most collectible and unusual products is the Zippo™ lighter featuring Parappa The Rapper characters from 1999. Unusual because nearly all the Parappa products were designed for kids or teenagers, but this product was certainly intended for adults. Maybe there were Japanese teenagers who were lighting up, but it’s hard to imagine them spending ¥10,000 on a lighter.
These are authentic unused Zippo™ all metal lighters in the original packaging. (Lighter fuel is not included.) The lighters are high quality, printed with matt background colors and gloss printing for the characters and logos. Made in the USA but only available in Japan in 1999. Each lighter is 2 1/4 inches high 1 1/2 inches wide and 1/2 inch deep. The box is 5 x 3 3/4 x 3/4 inches.
The PJ Berri Lighter includes a unique printed metal “tie tack” style pin badge. Note: The color of the PJ Berri lighter is a (difficult to photograph) dark green. The black ink printing on the dark green is clearly visible.
