  • TOY
    Publication number: 20160292562
    Abstract: A non-limiting example toy is a toy of a soft toy type, and includes an outer cover and filler that is filled inside the outer cover. A buttock portion of a stuffed toy is formed with a flat surface or approximately flat surface, and an ornament member is sewn on a surface side of the outer cover. A reinforcing member is adhered on a back side of the outer cover in a position corresponding to the ornament member. An IC tag is stuck on this reinforcing member. A user passes the stuffed toy over a reader/writer by bringing the buttock portion (hips portion) of the stuffed toy providing with the ornament member into contact to the reader/writer or by putting (sitting down) the stuffed toy on the reader/writer. Accordingly, tag information is read or tag information is rewritten.
