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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
