I love browsing the Skinny Dip concession whenever I’m in the Oxford Street branch of Top Shop. All that glitter makes me smile! These are some of my recent favourites.

Games & Apps

Spoon Pets

Posted on May 17, 2016 by

Good news for Neko Atsume fans; a new game from the same developer has hit the shelves! This app is based on Spoon Pets from Sega, which are toy pets that can wiggle onto spoons and like to live in cups. Or just watch this video if my last sentence didn’t make sense ;)

Spoon Pets game

The game is in Japanese, but especially if you are familiar with Neko Atsume, you can play it with no Japanese knowledge. Once you start the game you’ll receive a nice amount of silver and golden spoons. This is the currency to ‘pay’ with, like the fish in Neko Atsume. You’d best start by spending spoons on furniture and toys to decorate your house with. Just click the shopping cart and affirm your purchase with the left button (saying ‘yes’, whereas the right button says ‘no’). Don’t forget to place some food in your house as this will attract pets.

Now close the game and wait a while, hopefully there will be Spoon Pets visiting once you return.

When the pets have left, they’ll hand you silver or even golden spoons as a way to say ‘thank you’. You also get to see them inside your ‘pet book’.

There are three types of land expansions (available through the ‘star’ button in the menu), that look very cute. The first one – as pictured below – will cost you 120 golden spoons. You can also get golden spoons by trading silver spoons (500S = 10G) or by buying them as an in app purchase (€0.99 = 60G). At the moment I’m saving up my silver spoons ^_^

The main difference with Neko Atsume is that there are less items available and that you can apparently dress up the Spoon Pets. But I haven’t figured out how that works yet.
You can download the game for free on Apple iTunes or Google Play.

Most Wanted: Cat Marshmallows

Posted on May 16, 2016 by

cat marshmallows

We’ve shared kawaii sweets many times on SCK, but these might be the cutest yet! They’re cat-shaped marshmallows from Japanese store Felissimo and really might actually be too cute to eat.

Each box contains 9 marshmallows and you can choose from a few different combinations. They’re apparently not as soft as normal marshmallows so great for decorating desserts.

Felissimo do offer an international shipping service, so you can order online. They also have a few pop-ups in Japaneses department stores this month for their amazing Cat Club range of products. I will definitely try and get along to one while I’m there!

Super Cute Box Review

Super Cute Box review

You might remember we recently hosted a giveaway with Super Cute Box and they sent over one of the April boxes for me to have a look at, plus a 20% discount code for SCK readers. Let’s unpack all the cuteness!

Super Cute Box

The box has had a little redesign since the last time we reviewed one (back in July 2015) with a colourful sticker to get you excited about opening it. Super Cute Box is a great option for anyone who has trouble receiving parcels as they cram everything into very shallow box that should fit through any letterbox.

It’s also cute inside with pink tissue paper, sticker and a postcard with details of all the items included in the box. April’s theme is Sweet so there are lots of cute candy treats.

Here’s what I found inside: fabric drawstring bag, cookie keyring, doughnut squishy charm, memo board, lollipop eraser, panda cookie cutters and a bunny gift bag!
