Unboxing: Blippo Kawaii Shop Fukubukuro

Sub_Blog2

IMG_8631I saw an advert for Blippo Kawaii Shop, and thought it would be a really cute idea to get a fukubukuro this year. A fukubukuro, for those that don’t know, is a Japanese New Year’s custom of filling up lucky bags with leftover stock and selling them at a big discount. Mine was actually fairly cheap, approximately £19 including shipping. Initially I wanted either the ‘Kawaii Stationery Bag’ or the ‘Kawaii Sticker Bag’, but annoyingly both of those were sold out when I placed my order, so I opted for the ‘Kawaii Mixed Bag’ instead. I’m still not sure how I feel about the bag overall, but here’s what I got…

We’ll start with the positive! I got this really cute Cinnamoroll mini-plushie and a pair of San-X socks. I’m really unfamiliar with San-X, but the character is really cute, and you can never go wrong with socks, right?

Next up, some toiletries of sorts. The small item is a mirror, which folds out, and then as is custom these days, some face masks! Both of which will be really handy to pop in my handbag in the eventuality I ever leave the house. I also got this cute make-up bag, which I might even use as a pencil case as I have so many make-up bags now!

 

 

IMG_8636I also got a lot of stationery, which I’m really happy about! In my last unboxing post I mentioned that I wanted more practical items out of these boxes, so that box is definitely ticked! I got some sticky notes in the shape of a little bottle (not sure what, I could make an effort and translate the writing, but I’m not that bothered!), a pen, a lipstick shaped rubber (eraser for you over the pond), and some Disney stickers. I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use out of all of these items! The only one I’m less certain of is the transport themed stickers, as they’re not really my aesthetic, but you never know!

IMG_8632Now onto the not so great… I got some sweets, which I’m sure are probably nice, but due to all my allergies and dietary requirements I can’t eat. Again, I could spend some time translating the ingredients but I don’t really want to risk a mistranslation, so I’ll just let my parents have these! 

IMG_8637I then got a few items which just baffled me. These were a clip in hair extension with bright pink hair, a set of mesh clip-in hair bows, and an iPhone case for a model so old I’m not even sure what it is. I’m pretty certain I’m too old to pull off the hair accessories, and I don’t know anyone with the model of phone that the case would fit, so sad to say, all of these items went into the bin.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with the items I got in my fukubukuro bag. For £19 I think I got my money’s worth. There were some duff items but the other items made up for it. What did you think of the things I got in the bag?
