Although they started out providing 1/100th-scale cut-out figures to be used in architectural models, Terada has greatly expanded their line-up to cater to scale-model hobbyists, offering kits that feature miniature animals, sports settings, Christmas scenes and dozens of other themes. Miniature kits are priced at Y1500, and they also sell model-construction tool sets and plastic display cases.

The company's showroom stocks the entire range of model kits, and is officially open on weekends only. Kits are also sold in various design shops around Tokyo; check the website for details.
