Cute Shop Alert!

Sugar Bunny Shop

Posted on February 21, 2018 by

I love all the cute characters at Sugar Bunny Shop and noticed there are some fun new products in store. Let’s have a look!

Sugar Bunny Shop tote bag

These new tote bags can fit all your shopping but also fold and zip up really small. There’s five cute designs to choose from including Nyanpan, the melon bread cat.

Sugar Bunny Shop puddle bunny plush

The Puddle Bunnies are another favourite of mine and they’re now available as plushies! Look at that face. Both the white and panda plush are just $20.

Sugar Bunny Shop Gamercat enamel pins

There’s also lots of enamel pins for your collection. These Gamercat pins are designed to look like they’re hanging off you. I’m looking forward to reading the Gamercat comic from last year’s Kickstarter. If you missed out, I’m sure it will be available for everyone soon.

Kawaii Panda Picks

Posted on February 20, 2018 by

Pandas are my favourite animals next to cats. They seem to be just as playful and lazy and I love to watch them in the Zoo. Here are some ideas to bring a panda into your home.

kawaii panda pouch

This rainbow eyed panda pencil pouch is an original design by a Little Odd Forest. It can hold many items, such as pens, pencils, make-up or even a smartphone.

kawaii panda pillow

Mochi Mochi Panda is such a fun character, you can find him in the shape of a panda cushion at ARTBOX.

kawaii panda stationery file folder

You can also find many panda items at Kawaii Panda, such as this cute Mochi Mochi Panda file folder.

kawaii panda necklace

This handmade panda charm by Cat Bear Express is subtle and cute at the same time. It comes on a hypoallergenic stainless steel chain necklace.

If you are handy with polymer clay, you could make this cute panda pile charm from

Cute Characters

What’s New With San-X?

Posted on February 19, 2018 by

Since we’ve caught up with Sanrio and Pusheen, now it’s time for the San-X characters.

Rilakkuma is celebrating his 15th anniversary (!) with quite a few fun collaborations and a new Strawberry Party collection. There’s the usual adorable video and free wallpapers.

San-x Rilakkuma Strawberry Party

The products are all super sweet too, especially this incredible plush toy recipe set! There’s also bags, purses, small plush and a lot of cute stationery that I have my eye on. This is all released next month so if you need something, read our guide to ordering with Tenso and be ready for release day.

san-x corocorocoronya cafe japan

Corocorocoronya are quickly becoming some of my favourite San-X characters and they have some really cute new products coming soon with an ice cream theme. I’m mostly mesmerised by all the Instagram posts from their pop-up cafe at Tower Records in Tokyo. It just ended yesterday but we can still enjoy looking at all the kawaii food.

san-x sumikkogurashi plush pillow

Sumikko Gurashi went back to school recently for a new collection about studying. My absolute favourite product is this plushie book that opens up into a pillow so you can rest your head on the pages! There’s also a similar pouch.

san-x sentimental circus pouch

We never really feature Sentimental Circus on SCK but the new Sleeping Forest collection is very cute with a pastel watercolour feel. There’s lots of sweet plush, stationery and bags including this pouch set.

san-x kokujira jinbe san plush

And if you’ve got a spare £200, you could do a lot worse than spend it on a giant Kokujira plush! Kokujira is a very round baby whale friend of Jinbe San and it looks so huggable.
