Totoko's perennial admirers are collaborating with makeup brush maker Koyudo to release a product that will make real-world women beautiful. The collaboration is offering makeup brushes inspired by Mr. Osomatsu's Matsuno brothers.

Koyudo is the manufacturer of Kumano, Hiroshima's kumanofude (Kumano Brush), which is a government-designated traditional craft in Japan. Each of the special Mr. Osomatsu brushes features the Matsu mark and a color scheme inspired by one of the sextuplets. The bristles are made of 100% goat hair.

The brushes cost 3,996 yen (about US$35) each, and they will come with illustration cards. The 47 Club website is accepting pre-orders until November 20, and the brushes are slated to ship in late December.

Some people say beauty starts within, and accordingly, Mr. Osomatsu is also collaborating to offer an item promoting health. Tanita revealed Mr. Osomatsu-themed activity monitors on Wednesday.

The activity monitors are available in two types for each brother, and functions include a pedometer and overall activity meter. The online health management service Karada Karute will hold the "Virtual Walking Event" for sightseeing around Japan for people who purchase the monitors inspired by the six siblings. The online event will be held from March 1-31.

The health monitors cost 5,022 yen (US$45) each, and Tanita is accepting orders now. Each monitor will bundle an acrylic key holder, tin badge, and set of two postcards. The pre-order period will close on February 19, and orders will ship in late February.

Other Mr. Osomatsu merch to debut this year includes plushes, aquarium collaboration items, headphones, and mousepads.

The second season of the television anime series premiered on October 2.
