This Friday is Cat Day (Neko no Hi) in Japan so we’ve decided to celebrate with a whole week of cute cat-themed posts! To start off Cat Week, I’m sharing some products from my wish list with my favourite kawaii cat characters.
Pusheen is definitely my favourite kawaii cat and she has a new collaboration with Funko Pop vinyl figures. I’ve always found Funko figures to be a bit creepy but these are kind of changing my mind. There’s a whole series to collect including Pusheenicorn, Dragonsheen and, my favourite, angry Pusheenosaurus! They’re available for pre-order from lots of places including Pop in a Box and Amazon (USA / UK).
Hello Kitty may not win the character rankings any more but she’s got the most friends. The Converse x Hello Kitty collection is back in stock with some super cute shoes and fun clothing. Check it all out at Converse or Sanrio USA.
My Neighbour Totoro was one of my introductions to kawaii and I will always hope to get a ride on the Catbus some day (I waited at the bus stop in Japan but no luck). Until then, I can make do with this adorable Catbus & Totoro plush set from JapanLA (USA).
I’ve mentioned the Fuku Fuku Nyanko cats before on SCK – they’re one of my favourite finds in Japan. They’re created by the HAPiNS/Passport stores so difficult to find outside Japan but you can follow them on Instagram to see all the cute new products. I really want these cat-patterned phone cables with matching cable tidy.
