I’m starting this tag off, because I can’t find anything else like it on the internet and it is something I would LOVE to do. This is the unique items tag… Well not so much unique, but not something everyone will have in their room/home. You name five unique items in your room/home that not many people would have. They can be anything from a signed album by your favourite band, a limited edition frame, something from a different part of the world that not many Brits would own. You get the picture.
I love having unique and different things that I know not many would have and since being with my boyfriend, my collection of uniqueness has grown!
I really enjoyed walking around my room and picking things up to talk about. I do hope you enjoy this tag!
- Nendoroid Penguindrum Princess of the Crystal.
This was one of my birthday presents this year from my boyfriend and one of the best I received. I’ve wanted a Nendoroid for years and this is my first one! These aren’t exactly in every home in the UK, considering they’re pretty nerdy and look like children’s toys. Yes, they are toys but if you ask me they’re for adults. These are made and sold in Japan and whilst they state on the boxes that they aren’t meant to be sold outside of Japan, they are all the time. I watched Penguindrum when me and my boyfriend first started talking so I have fond memories of the anime due to this. But onto the doll. I love this doll so much, she’s just so pretty! With her red hair and pink eyes she’s just adorable and she even comes with the three penguins that the three main characters have. So cute! This doll is pretty rare for quite a few reasons. One being that the anime isn’t actually that popular in the UK, but alongside that this doll was made and sold in 2012, three years ago! Plus this isn’t opened and to be honest I don’t intend to open it. I don’t care, I want her to stay special and rare.
- Sooty clock.
This is probably one of the oldest things I own and I’ve owned it since I was 3 or 4. I remember the day my mom ordered it for me from the official Sooty magazine and she asked me which colour I would like. I still own it over 20 years later and I love it. It’s still in working order and the image of Sooty always makes me smile and reminds me of my childhood. I’ll definitely take this clock with me when I move out, I just love it too much to leave it behind. I doubt many 25 year old’s have Sooty clock’s in their rooms eh? 😉
- Skribble This artwork.
This is a chibi version of me that was drawn by Skribble This. She was at Comic Con in Birmingham in November and me and my boyfriend loved her artwork that much we wanted some artwork done by her. I love the picture of me so much and it always makes me smile. It’s just so cute and definitely makes me look better than I actually am. She really did draw me how I wanted her to as well. I know in the future I want a massive piece of artwork drawn by her, but that won’t be until I move out.
- Pokemon Valentine’s Day tin.
I love Pokemon, as regular readers will know so it was super cute when my boyfriend bought me this tin for Valentine’s Day this year. It came with loads of little chocolate cornflake bites inside and damn they were yummy! The tin itself is covered in male and female Pokemon and the cutest couple on the tin are definitely the Pikachu’s. They just make me happy when I look at the tin itself. I don’t know what I’ll be using it for, maybe some Yankee Candle wax tarts, or even something else. Either way it’s just so cute and would look lovely on a shelf. This came straight from the Pokemon Center in Japan (well my boyfriend bought it from a seller in the UK, but you know what I mean). So it has a little bit more of a special place in my bedroom than some of my pieces.
- Totoro plushie.
I thought I would save the best for last and that’s my Totoro plushie. My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas, as he knows how much I love the anime film and also how much I wanted one of these plushies. Way before we even met I’ve always wanted one so when I opened this and it was THIS big I was over the moon. It’s a really hard plushie and you can give him a good squish when you really need one. I like to cuddle him whilst I read or play games as he’s just really comfortable. We have looked over whether or not this is official and we do have a feeling it is, but either way I still love it all the same. I would love the little white and blue Totoro’s to add alongside this one. Hopefully in the future!
So those are my 5 unique items. So who do I tag? EVERYONE! Give this tag a go, it’ll definitely make you think.
Do you own any of these items, or at least ones similar? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time, take care all and I hope all my readers are well.
