Super Cute Submissions: Kawaii Plush

Posted on January 14th 2015 by in Just Cute!

A new feature! Our submissions form has been getting a workout lately, with loads of you writing in to tell us about your cute shops. With a huge list of my own cute finds to work through too, it can be difficult to get around to the submissions, so I’m going to feature a few at a time when they’ve piled up. Here’s some of my favourite plush from over the holidays.

Robots and Monkeys

There aren’t nearly enough kawaii robots out there, but luckily Robots and Monkeys have arrived with a new range of plush. Each one is different and sewn up by a qualified plush robot scientist! SCK readers can get 3€ off any order with the code THANKYOUROBOTS.

smiling bear

Smiling Bear have a new range of cute koala products, available in Australian airports and online. As well as being adorable, the toys have secret smile pockets and a portion of the profits goes towards helping real koalas.

my dear darling

We’ve featured My Dear Darling‘s cute penguins before and quite a few things been added since then. I especially love these mini tweedy plush.


And finally, Noodle doll Nelly is a new shop selling cute clouds and brooches. The mobiles and hanging ornaments are especially sweet.

Want to tell us about your cute shop? Head over to the Submissions page.

Origin Molang Shop

Posted on January 9th 2015 by in Cute Shop Alert!

molang candles

Molang is one of my favourite characters so I was really happy to hear that there’s now an official Molang store on eBay which ships worldwide. Instead of the usual overpriced tiny selection, we can now pick up everything from stationery and stickers to plush, cushions and even scented candles! Both the prices and shipping are quite affordable, especially for smaller items, so I’ll be adding a few things to my wishlist. Check out the full range at Origin Molangshop.

One of the gifts my boyfriend spoiled me with this holiday was a print of Moonbeams and Dandelions by Sharodactyl. It is the type of art I love – cute and creepy. I love the skull puffs and wish to wish upon them!

The print came nicely wrapped and a patch and button of the print was even included! Sharodactyl has plenty of cute prints, stickers and more in her Etsy shop for those looking to add to their art collection.

tofu cute

Everyone loves Rilakkuma and Tofu Cute have some sweet 2015 diaries with food themes and lots of useful pages for dates, notes and addresses.


Paperchase have tons of cute diaries, including lockable ones. I like the embroidered ones best, especially this lion in a balloon. Raar!

My Cute Christmas

Posted on January 5th 2015 by in Look What I've Got!


I got quite a few cute things for Christmas this year – the very cutest being a little Loppy plush with a santa hat! My sister got him for me at Hyper Japan and he’s so soft.

christmas loppy

There’s a whole range of Christmas-themed Loppys and they’re all too cute! Otakumode still have some in stock if you fancy one, or two, yourself.

vitamin pen

She also got me a vitamin pen, which is too cute to use! Get one from Artbox for just 80p.

Look what I got from my not-very-secret Santa!

Even my Secret Santa gift from work was cute – a huggable panda that you put in the microwave to heat up.

The postman just brought me an amazing little hamper of goodies from @pusheen!

Most excitingly, the postman brought me a surprise package on New Year’s Eve, that turned out to be a delightfully festive mini Knoshy hamper from no less than Pusheen The Cat! Truly I am a lucky bunny.

I hope you all had a super cute Christmas too – did you get anything cute from Santa?

Cute Calendars for 2015

Posted on December 18th 2014 by in Let's Go Shopping!

Even though we all have calendars on our phones and computers, I like to have a cute calendar around to keep track of birthdays and other events (and what day it even is, since I work from home!). Here are my favourites for 2015.


pom pom purin wall calendar

I love Pom Pom Purin and all his friends. This wall calendar from Japan in a Box is full of adorable seasonal illustrations with loads of room for your notes.

aranzi aronzo

The tiny Aranzi Aronzo store is a must visit if you’re ever in Tokyo and I always spend a fortune. Their online site is a bit clunky but they do ship worldwide. This year’s desk calendar features all the characters made from felt – so sweet.

rilakkuma calendar

Tofu Cute have some Rilakkuma desk calendars that are really colourful and come in three yummy flavours – chocolate cookie, gummi drop and fruits candy.

my zoetrope

my zoetrope

I bought Panda-san one of these My Zoetrope calendars last year and the 2015 version is just as cute, full of all-new animal illustrations.

pusheen calendar

And finally, Pusheen is so popular these days that her wall calendar is going for crazy prices, but Amazon have these cool poster calendars that would really cute up your workspace, and come with stickers too.
