Mira Plush

Posted on August 11th 2014 by Marceline


rilakkuma

If you’ve been coveting all the super cute Rilakkuma plush that’s been appearing this year, then let me introduce you to Mira Plush. They source all the most amazing limited edition Japanese plush and the prices are pretty reasonable, especially compared to getting into a bidding war on eBay. The new Shinkansen plush are killing me, but they also have loads of Space plush and some hilarious tie-ins with Tower Records.

cute scribbles

Hands up who else is a stationery addict? At least pens get used (unlike all those letter sets, stickers and cards…) and what could be cuter than these kitty cats? I found them at Cute Scribbles on Etsy and I want a whole handful! The bunny and cloud pens are pretty adorable too, and they’re all about £2 each – bargain!

Sanrio Chara-Crepes

Posted on August 5th 2014 by Marceline


pom pom purin crepe

If you ever make it to Tokyo, you have to buy a crepe in Harajuku. The one I tried had an entire slice of cheesecake in it, which was crazy enough for me, but Marion Crepes have gone way off the scale with their new Chara-crepes, as spotted on Kao-ani. Teaming up with Sanrio, you can buy a Pom Pom Purin custard crepe, an egg and ham Gudetama crepe, or even a salmon Kirimi-chan crepe! Would you try one, or stick to fruit and cream?

Could it be you?

We’re looking for kawaii fans of any age, gender and country, who speak and write English fluently and have some experience with blogging and social media. Knowing how to use WordPress is a bonus, but we can train you up on that.

You will not be paid for published sample posts but will receive a credit link. SCK may also use your sample post ideas to write our own posts, again giving you credit for the idea.

Unsuccessful applicants may not receive a response. Successful applicants will be hired on a trial basis as guest posters and paid for each post (1-2 per week), with the opportunity to advance to a part-time paid staff writer position handling holiday cover, social media etc. All payment is on a freelance basis and you will need to register as self-employed in your own country and pay appropriate taxes.

Best Of Monsieur Le Bun

Posted on July 30th 2014 by Marceline


We couldn’t let our old pal leave without digging up some of his greatest moments. Here’s some of our favourite posts, starting with his introduction, Bonjour From Le Bun! He promised so much and delivered so little…

kawaii 101

Kawaii 101: Bento - Le Bun was supposed to be using his so-called qualifications to teach us about kawaii but he only wrote three useful posts.

bunski

Le Bun On Les Skis! - Le Bun literally phones in a post while on a skiing holiday. He was always off skiing until his final accident put paid to that. Not that he worked any harder from home. (Bunny ornament by My Zoetrope, no longer available)

chart-lebun

Ze Survey Resultings - Supposedly an in-depth look at the results of our reader survey; mostly a look at how popular Le Bun is with our readers.

lebun-voyages

Introducing… - Le Bun travels the globe and introduces us to some of his plushy friends and we wondered what we had gotten ourselves into.

www.etsy.com/shop/mymimi

Monsieur Moustachio – Le Bun searches up some cute moustachioed friends!

asklebun1

Back To School With Le Bun - Prof. Le Bun decides to answer a question no-one asked and gives us his teacherly advice on education and cute stationery.

monsieur le ghost

Halloween Dress-up - that time Le Bun dressed up as Monsieur Le Fantome to tell us about some spooky cute Halloween products.

We’ll miss you Le Bun! But not that much, especially after we discovered all those important emails you hadn’t been passing on to us. If you’ll miss him, you can still buy Famille Le Bun products via Asking For Trouble (on sale!) and Zazzle. If you were one of the early SCK readers who remembers Le Bun fondly, please leave your reminiscences in the comments and we’ll send a pack of Le Bun Famille badges to our favourites!

Yoyo the Rice-corpse

Posted on July 29th 2014 by Marceline


YOYOTHERICECORPSE

Even I discover cute new stuff by following the SCK Tumblr as my sister helps fill up the queue with her finds. Yoyo the Rice-corpse is a recent favourite, an artist based in London making weirdly cute art that has a fairytale anime style with mushrooms, bunnies and pandas hanging about in surreal dreamscapes. You can buy her work as prints, cards, tote bags and more and there’s currently 20% off all orders over £12 with the code NEED LOVE.

Rilakkuma in Space

Posted on July 28th 2014 by Marceline


rilakkuma in space

I’ve been a space nerd for even longer than I’ve been a kawaii fan so I LOVE the new space-themed Rilakkuma products! They seem to be a tie in with the Lawson corner shops in Japan, but luckily you can still find a lot of it online. The plushes are all amazing, but there are also some cute figurines, cool backpacks and loads of stationery. eBay is your best bet at the moment, but hopefully some will turn up on San-X partner sites in the US and Europe too. I’ll take one of everything!

I always enjoy a cute cat illustration, especially when said cats are baking, speaking French, deep sea diving and going into space! You can find all that and more at Brave Moonman, a shop filled with illustrated notebooks, stickers, iPhone cases and more. Go have a look!

Kirimi Chan at It’s Cute!

Posted on July 24th 2014 by Claire


FILLET-CHAN-MEMO-546x610

Perhaps you’ve already met Sanrio’s newest character, Kirimi Chan? I certainly hadn’t, but stumbled across him recently. Your eyes are not deceiving you – yes, she is a salmon fillet. Personally, I think this is a step too far, Sanrio! But there we are.

If you like the look of this fishy fellow, you’ll find her on all sorts of stuff soon, I’m sure, but you can already snap up this memo pad above at It’s Cute!.

KIRIMI-CHAN-SEAL-546x610

And there’s also a sheet of stickers with all her pals, too, if you’re that way inclined. What do you think? Do you like Kirimi Chan?
