Rilakkuma Shop Plushies

Posted on September 21, 2015 by

I love seeing all the weird and wonderful new Rilakkuma plushies, but usually we either have to wait ages for them to arrive over here, or pay huge prices on eBay. I came across Rilakkuma Shop recently, which sells authentic new plush from Japan via Singapore with very affordable shipping worldwide. Let’s look at some of the amazing things on sale.

rilakkuma halloween

We are already gearing up for Halloween here at SCK and pumpkin plushies are available for pre-order.

rilakkuma panda

I’m still waiting impatiently for the Panda series to be more widely available. This panda plush is adorable and available now.

rilakkuma bread

Stuffed inside various kinds of bread? Sure, why not.

If you’ve got £200 to spare, what better way to spend it than on a huge plushie Rilakkuma birthday cake?


They also sell lots of Sumikko Gurashi including this amazing sushi set.

It’s not all pricey stuff though – there are plush from under £4 and lots of cute stationery, plus lucky draw items. Check it all out at Rilakkuma Shop.

Cute Cases for Your New iPhone

Posted on September 18, 2015 by

Since my iPhone died last month, I have been so excited about having a working mobile again soon that I almost forgot that I get to buy a new case too! Whether you’re picking up a brand new iPhone 6s or just looking to refresh your current case, here’s some cute cases I found – the good news is that cases for the 6 will fit the 6s too. Android users – I’ve also mentioned where non-iPhone options are available.

neko atsume

I haven’t been able to play Neko Atsume for ages but I love these clear cases, available from Otaku Mode. The way the cats are playing with the Apple logo is so cute. Also the cat with a bag on its head is the greatest.


Also hilarious, these rubber ducky cases from Hamee/Strapya World – the blue is actually liquid so the ducks float around.

petits pixels

I usually end up ordering a case with one of my own designs from Society6 and they have loads of other kawaii artists on there too. I love these polar bears by Petits Pixels. You can get all the designs on cases for iPhone 3G – 6s plus Galaxy S4-S6 too.


Redbubble also have great kawaii artist cases for iPhone and Galaxy. Daisy Beatrice has some really cute and colourful designs like these round animal faces.

sumikko gurashi

Whatever I buy, it’s likely to be a stopgap until my Japan trip next year, when I will get to do some kawaii shopping and probably buy all the Sumikko Gurashi things in existence. Until then, there are some cute cases available on eBay.

Batty For Bats

Posted on September 17, 2015 by

I brought you cats now I will bring you bats. Bats to wear and cuddle are a must have for your spooky cute look. Here are my top picks that mix cute and creepy and will have people doing a double take.

bat pack

Think of all the treasures this little bat-pack could hold! I can see many ways to make this cute or creepy-cute depending on what you pair it with! It could be a major staple in you cute goth wardrobe.

Dulce Calaveritas

These pink pleather bat bows from Dulce Calveritas are super cute. I have one of her bat bows in black (naturally) and wear it often in my hair.


Cuddle up with this bat plushie by Flat Bonnie without the fear of getting rabies!

Kawaii Machine

How about a cute ice skater inspired dress covered in super cute bats by Kawaii Machine?

Dolly Dynamite

Have a basic skirt, dress or short shorts that could use some bat flair? Throw on a pair of tights from Dolly Dynamite and add just the right amount of bats to your look.

Kawaii Plush Bag & Charm Review

Posted on September 16, 2015 by

review - kawaii plush

I was recently sent a few things to review from Kawaii Plush, a new online store selling…well, kawaii plush! I chose a bag and charm and they arrived quickly and well packaged.

kawaii plush

First up is this fluffy panda bag which is so cute – look at that face! It’s made with very fluffy fabric with padded ears and embroidered face.

kawaii plush

The inside is lined, though sadly without any inner pockets, but there’s a big zipper pocket on the back. You might need to do a lot of rummaging if you used it as your main bag, but it would be perfect for the beach or sports.

kawaii plush

The handles are made from a soft velvety plush and are a good length for a shoulder bag so it’s pretty comfy to wear. Overall, it’s pretty well made and looks super cute without being too crazy for everyday use.

I was also sent this adorable little banana bag charm. Quite often these small items don’t live up to the images, but I was sent a few and they’re all perfect. That face just kills me and the fabric is so soft.

kawaii plush

It has a standard charm loop attached to a strong fabric loop that thankfully looks like it won’t break easily. I popped mine on my bag and he’s still happily hanging out there a few weeks later.

kawaii plush

Kawaii Plush have been changing their product range over the last few weeks, so sadly neither of these items is available any more. However, they do have some cute panda pouches, with lots more cute things to come.


Kawaii Plush also gave me a handful of banana charms to pass on to you lot, so they’ll be part of our Birthday Giveaway prizes. The winner will get two and two runners-up will get one each and some other goodies. Go enter now.

Posted on September 15, 2015 by

Marceline has recently posted about her favourite colouring and drawing books and now I’d like to show you mine. Colouring is something that really relaxes me, especially when it’s combined with cute pictures.

Colorful Jetoy

I’ve got a soft spot for Choo Choo Cats and couldn’t resist Colorful Jetoy. This is the eBay shop that I used to order a copy.

Econeco colouring book

The Econeco colouring book is filled with cute animals and would go perfect with pastel coloured pencils. It’s available at CD Japan and YesAsia.

wild olive

Mollie created a colouring page filled with her kawaii characters. You can download it for free at Wild Olive.

Ciocco Moca

If you are looking for something simple to colour, this free printable Ciocco Moca book might be it!


As a fan of 70’s & 80’s shoujo Manga, I really enjoy the colouring pages on Morimu’s website.

Thank you for reading and feel free to have a look on my Pinterest board for more kawaii colouring pages.

Japanese DIY Candy Kit Reviews

Posted on September 11, 2015 by

This is the second part of our candy reviews – read the first part here.

Those crazy Japanese DIY candy kits always look so fun, but do they really work, and are they actually nice to eat too? I roped in my family to try a couple out with me.

candy apple kit

Let’s start with the Horadekita DIY Candy Apple Kit, which lets you make what we call toffee apples in the UK, except these ones are candy pieces on a stick that you dip in red syrup and sprinkles.

candy apple kit

It’s really easy to use – you just empty each pouch into the plastic tray and then get dipping! There’s only one cocktail stick in each pack so we had to take it in turns, but we all found it pretty hilarious to watch each other trying to get a good lot of sticky syrup and pack on the sprinkles. As you might expect, they taste very sweet and the ‘apple’ is bubblegum flavour. They do look quite realistic but it’s a shame the apples aren’t more round. This is a fun kit though, and does exactly what it says.


Our second kit was Popin’ Cookin’ Neri Candy Land which is basically a pack of edible plasticine. You can mould it into any shape you like and then eat it! Inside the box are 5 coloured blocks of candy that can be mixed to make more colours, plus sprinkles, mini rolling pin and a plastic tray with shaped moulds and patterns.


So here’s what we made! Nicolette made the adorable snowman and the ice cream cone and I made the weird roll cake and Angel Bunny (it was late and I had a cold, cut me some slack). It proved to be a bit harder than expected as the candy is quite sticky so difficult to roll out and shape. Let’s have a closer look at that snowman.


So cute! I was especially impressed with the striped scarf. We didn’t have the heart to eat any of our creations, which kind of defeated the whole point of the kit, but we nibbled on some leftover bits and it was just like bubblegum.

We had a lot of fun with this kit and if you’re crafty and have more patience than us you can make some super cute things. Check out this video by KawaiixCandy for kawaii rainbows, donuts and more.

Fancy trying some of these yourself?

Check out the Japan Candy Box and Freedom Japanese Market subscription boxes for a surprise selection of candy and kits. You can also buy individual DIY kits from Tofu Cute, Blippo, JList, JapanCentre and more.

Candy kits were provided for review by Japan Candy Box and Freedom Japanese Market but these are our honest opinions and photos. Thanks to Nicolette for all the action photos.
