Japanese merchandising to tie in with the 1989 Studio Ghibli anime film "Kiki's delivery service".

In this anime feature, 13-year-old Kiki  moves to a seaside town with her talking cat, Jiji, to spend a year alone, in accordance with her village's tradition for witches in training. After learning to control her broomstick, Kiki sets up a flying courier service (she delivers bread) and soon becomes a fixture in the community. But when the insecure young witch begins questioning herself and loses her magic abilities, she must overcome her self-doubt to get her powers back.
