Do you know the Kakao Friends? They’re cute characters from Korea that started out as message stickers and now have loads of cute merch. I was happy to discover recently that there’s a European web store so let’s have a look. If you’re outside Europe, you can order some items from their official US Amazon store.
My favourite of the Kakao Friends is Ryan the lion and this pillow looks so huggable!
I also think Apeach is adorable – how cute is this humidifier?
These enamel pins are a collaboration with girl group TWICE and how can you even pick a favourite?
There’s plenty for stationery fans too including stickers, notebooks, pens and sticky memos. This set has a hot chocolate theme.
Check out the Kakao Friends Europe store for loads more products, which you can browse by character or theme. There’s free shipping for all orders over £45/€50 too.
