I really love the recent tokidoki Pool Party collection so I thought I’d find some more fun picks for a real life summer pool party or beach trip – or even just a picnic in the park.
tokidoki’s Pool Party collection features the whole gang relaxing in the pool with inflatables. My favourite piece is this clear beach tote, which has neon yellow handles and a detachable iridescent blue pouch. So cool.
If you want to join them, this giant rainbow pool float By Pop Fix is a kawaii way to relax.
The Sanrio characters are enjoying the beach in this adorable new Tropical Summer collection at Sanrio Japan. These Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll and My Melody plushies come with removable swim rings and you can even buy a little matching deckchair!
If you loved Smoko’s dumpling light, there’s a cute beach towel now too! It’s available for preorder, shipping later this month.
Try a different drink to keep you cool with the new Summer teas from Karel Capek. The packaging is so adorable and includes flavours like pineapple and white peach. This brand is hard to track down outside of Japan but Rainbowholic Shop ship worldwide and are stocking them individually and in larger packs.
You’ll need to keep those drinks and snacks cool and how about a fun Kiki’s Delivery Service cool bag from Bento&co? It looks just like the bakery and is insulated inside to keep things cold.
