Reduced to clear at £0.75; these must have been stocked for Chinese new year. Found at Feltham Tesco & there were quite a few in stock.

P.S. It is solar powered.

I've got one sitting waving at me, well technically beckoning at me, on top of my monitor right now. Can't say it's attracted a huge amount of luck so far though.

They didn't happen to have any of the maneki-neko shaped tealights in stock in feltham did they?

I don't understand... why would a Japanese cat, be used to celebrate Chinese New Year?

It's not waving, it's clawing in money and good fortune.

That's a luck counter. Pays out when it gets to 888.

No, the cat is solar powered, & the rectangular piece is the solar sensor

It is very popular in Chinese people as a luck-charm, & it's used as a gift for Chinese new year. It is often mistaken as a Chinese lucky charm

They had lanterns, dragon-toy, some wall-hangings, But didn't notice tealights

Because traditional Japanese new year is celebrated on the same day as Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese new year. That said I'm not sure sure if maneki-neko are associated with Japanese new year, but hey ho they are still a fun thing.

Not sure I believe it; but the cat is supposed to be placed at entrance & face customers, guests etc.

There's lots of myths and traditions surrounding maneki-neko with lot's of different competing ideas as to why a beckoning cat is supposed to bring luck, and you're right they are often placed at the doorway of of business establishments to bring customers, and hence luck and good fortune.
