As a fan of Ghibli’s soot sprites, I love the new collection at AndSmile, which features what must be their cousins – adorable mischievous blobs that come out at night and party! There are prints, cards and brooches, but my absolute favourite is the sticky tape which has gone straight on my wishlist. Is there anything that wouldn’t be improved by a line of happy blobs?
If you’re feeling crafty, Happy Kawaii Supplies have loads of cute supplies at bargain prices including these sweet pastry charms. SCK readers get 15% off all orders with the code CUTIE.
Kawaii Depot have added some new Sanrio stationery including these deluxe sticky memo sets that include 17 different pads in some adorable packaging. Don’t forget there’s 10% off orders of $15+ with the code KDSS-10.
Yozo Craft are getting into the Summer spirit with some crazy new Mind Wave stickers with scuba diving bunnies and even a panda being eaten by a shark!
If you haven’t picked up something for Father’s Day yet, Paperchase have some pretty cute cards and gifts. They’ve also opened up their Treat Me loyalty card to everyone in the UK – just pick up a card in any store for some great discounts.
Ice Cream Cake have loads of cute Korean socks, but this camping set is my favourite. I will definitely go camping with that bear.
Sock It To Me are a US company that create their own sock designs (and have an annual design contest!). Everyone needs sparkly rainbow unicorn kneehighs, right? There’s a Buy 3 Get 1 Free offer on this month too.
CATS CATS CAAATS!!! Show off your love of cats with these hilarious socks from Sock Dreams.
I stop in Daiso every month or so (when I am near one) to look at all the funky kitchenware, craft supplies and stationery they have in. If you have not been into or have heard of Daiso it is basically a Japanese dollar store. Like all dollar stores it is a hit and miss and stock sometimes takes forever to rotate.
My go to section is the stationery area because I love having a selection of cute papers to write letters on. The selection changes each time I go in and lately the selection has expanded. Over the weekend I was delighted to find tofu and llama adorned paper ready to head into my cart. I cannot wait to use these to write a letter on!
Do you still write letters to friends? If so do you like picking up paper and writing accessories to make your mail cute?
Check the Daiso Global website to see if there’s a store near you, or you view some of the products on the Daiso Japan site.
The JooJoo Etsy shop is home to a whole alphabet of animals. These cute critters have been illustrated in watercolors by Afsaneh, who offers them as high quality prints. Each print is available in 3 different sizes and I’ve selected some of my favourites for you:
The J is for jellyfish, a sweet couple that would probably do well in your bathroom.
The S is for sloth and Super Cute Kawaii, where you can find more ideas for cute sloth decorations.
Afsaneh also likes to make miniature polymer animals and kokeshi dolls. Fun fact: the miniature shadow box has been made by her parents, so it’s a family business (ᴖ◡ᴖ) You can find the miniature dolls at JooJoo Treasures, but expect a hefty price tag as they take quite some time to create.
Kimchi Kawaii have some new plushies up for pre-order. They’re as pun-tastic as always, with the super cute Catpuccino due in stock soon and Hamburger Bun and HoneyBun (it’s a bee bunny) later in the year. If you can’t wait that long, there’s lots of other fun stuff available including cool double-sided keychains.
Father’s Day is coming up on the 21st for a lot of countries so now’s a good time to shop for cards. While most dads aren’t big fans of kawaii, they definitely deserve something other than the standard cars, moustaches and fishing themes. I had a dig about on Etsy for something a bit cuter.
Food with faces and two puns – this super cute card by Mudsplash Studios really has it all.
I feel like I always pick something from My Zoetrope in these card round-ups but she really has a card for every occasion! There are 3 great options for Father’s Day, and who can resist a whale wearing a tie?
Those of you who celebrate Father’s Day later in the year, bookmark your favourite or get organised early.
Colouring books aren’t just for kids – it’s a proven stress-buster and a great way to relax, as well as improving your artistic skills. There are some super cute books for colouring, drawing and activities out there and here’s a few of my favourites.

There’s a whole range of books in Japan about learning to draw with ballpoint pens. I have one myself and they’re crammed full of kawaii. It’s a really great way to learn how to make your own cute characters. Japan Lovely Crafts has a big range to choose from.
This sweet colouring book by Lady Lucas is available as a PDF download so you can be colouring in minutes.

I discovered Sparkle Collective on Instagram where Britt posts photos of her super cute illustrated products. There’s a big focus on baby kitties and food with faces and you’ll find a range of stickers, hand-drawn brooches, badges and more in her Etsy shop.
It’s that time of year again. Sanrio want to know which character is your favourite so get on over and vote for your favourite. The site’s in Japanese, but just click the button under your favourite character and then fill in the form. While I’m writing this, the top 3 are My Melody, Hello Kitty and Little Twin Stars with my favourite Pom Pom Purin in fourth.
Voting closes in a couple of weeks and then we’ll find out the new rankings at the end of June.
