If someone knocked on my door tomorrow morning and told me I had to buy 5 cute things off the internet before sundown, this is what I’d run upstairs and buy.
I’d have bought this Toast Cell Phone Holder before the door even closed. I look at this on From Japan With Love’s store every couple of days and blub as it is just so ridiculously cute. Look at him licking his lips! His splat of melty butter. Waaaah. The only reason I haven’t bought this already is ‘cos I have a cute bunny phone holder Claire bought me and I don’t even use my phone much. However, if someone else was to buy me it, that would be okay, ahem.
The cutest way to show my bunny love would be this adorable Heartfelt Bunny Necklace by gerrijo on Etsy. Handmade with the cutest expression, this would cuteify any outfit I might be wearing.
More Etsy love and more cute animals with this Panda Zippy Pouch. Connie at The Tiny Fig makes so many awesome things but my absolute favourites are her gocco printed purses. I love the panda’s quizzical look.
Momiji dolls are becoming a bit ubiquitous these days but the special range by manga artist Joanna Zhou is super-cute. This Kitty momiji is just the sweetest, and comes in a cool gift tin too.
I left this Mamegoma Bee Plush til last as, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be good for nothing else for the rest of the day, having melted into a puddle of kawaii love. I already own the cutest fuzzy Mamegoma dressed in pink bunny outfit but I’m sure he could do with a buzzy bumble bee friend. There’s a panda verson too, aaargh.
