YY Kawaii Collective Haul

I cannot tell you how many months I’ve been trying to write this blog post now! It must have been 3 months at least. It’s just taken so long as I’ve either had to wait for stuff to come out and be sent to me, or I’ve ended up pre-ordering more things and decided to wait for them to arrive so I could do a huge collective haul. Finally all my stuff has arrived now so I can do this post, yays!

I love YY Kawaii and have done for as long as I can remember. She stocks so much awesome stuff from Japan, including two of my favourite things, Pokemon and Persona 5, as well as many other things.

I’ve mentioned YY Kawaii in the past on my blog (which you can read here) and I won’t be stopping talking about them anytime soon.

I hope you enjoy this little collective haul anyway. I’ll pop loads of links to YY Kawaii’s website as well as social media pages at the end of this post.

Just a heads up, I’ll be talking about the stuff I bought in the order I bought it.

  • How To Keep A Mummy Mii-Kun Plush

This is something I had pre-ordered before from YY Kawaii but sadly when she went to pick up the plushies they had ALL sold out so I was given a refund. So as soon as the chance to pre-order came up again I KNEW I had to get in there quickly! Then July came and so did Mii-Kun. I was so excited to receive this plushie and when I did I fell so in love! It now sits by my bed and has so far appeared on one of my blog posts (which you can read here) as he just looked so cute with my pin flag! He wasn’t cheap considering his size but he was oh so worth it! He’s just the perfect size, especially if you would cosplay with him! I don’t think these are available anymore, but I’ve since seen Mii-Kun’s for sale online.

  • Persona 5 Joker Plushie Keychain

When this Joker plushie first went up for sale and pre order I was going to order, but a part of me was put off due to the size. I wanted a bigger Joker plush really. Then I saw people posting theirs on Instagram and I was a bit bummed, but it’s when YY Kawaii did a live video on her Instagram page showing the Persona 5 plushie keychains off that I really regretted not getting one. So I asked YY Kawaii if she could get anymore and she said she still could, so I put in my pre-order and waited for him to arrive. Joker and Mii-Kun actually arrived together, which was amazing! Joker for a while lived by my bed but now he’s on mine and Dane’s manga shelf in our living room. I wouldn’t want to keep him on a bag or anything as I’d be scared he would fall off! I wish I had bought Ryuji and Anna too now. It’s something I’ll definitely keep my eye on in sales etc in future!

  • Persona 5 Morgana Sega Cafe Exclusive Strap/Keychain

I legit ordered this just after my Joker plushie keychain arrived. It was funny because literally not long before YY Kawaii popped these up for sale I had looked at them on eBay in Japan and seen how expensive they were! I’m so glad I ordered it though, even though I’d done sod all with it! I was going to pop it on my car keys or even my Loungefly Star Wars backpack (which you can read about here) but the back of the design isn’t covered, so for how much I paid I worried the back would be scratched off and ruined. It’s happened with straps and keychains in the past and I’ve been gutted. I didn’t want that to happen again! So for now Morgana has been living on my Joker plushie keychain! I’m tempted to turn it into a necklace, but meh I don’t know. We’ll see!

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Eevee Bowl

When I kept seeing the 2018 Pokemon Collection kuji online on both YouTube and Instagram, I KNEW I had to have one of the bowls from the kuji! I asked YY Kawaii if she was able to get hold of any prizes separately and luckily she was able to get some of the bowls. I asked for the Eevee one and I was so excited for it to arrive! It’s not the biggest bowl in the world admittedly but either way it’s so cute! I’ve been using it for little snacks such as crisps, pretzels, M&M’s etc. I do really love it but I’m glad I only got one. πŸ˜›

  • 2018 Pokemon Collection Kuji Prize Vaporeon Strap/Keychain

Again like the bowl, I was so excited for this collection and honestly I wanted everything from it. I most of all wanted the Flareon strap/keychain but sadly YY Kawaii wasn’t able to get a hold of it due to how popular it was. Instead I opted for Vaporeon instead! Granted I didn’t need a new strap/keychain but this cute little Vaporeon was hard to say no to and it now lives on my car keys! I love the little jangling noise it makes against my keys. It’s actually quite relaxing.

  • Persona 5 Sega Prize Morgana Cushion

This is the last item on this list and is one that arrived yesterday, but I missed the parcel and had to go and pick it up this morning before work. I knew as soon as it was put up for pre-order that I had to have it. I’ve become a huge Persona 5 fan this past year and now that Morgana is coming out as plushies and such, I really need all the Morgana merch! This pillow is way bigger than I thought it was going to be and I am pleasantly surprised! I opened the parcel this morning before I headed into work and it is huge! You’ll see from the images just how big it is. Not only is it large in size but it is so squishy and soft, I’ve sat here cuddling it whilst writing this post. I cannot wait to use this as a cushion to rest my head on both upstairs in bed as well as on my cuddle chair in the living room. It’s just perfect and it’s definitely one of my favourite things on this haul alongside Mii-Kun.

So there are all the goodies I picked up from YY Kawaii these past couple of months! I wish I could have more on this list but I am trying to be good with money. πŸ˜› I do have some bits and pieces on a wish list in the back of my mind… πŸ˜› Hopefully they’ll become a reality in the future.

As I said at the start of this post, I’ll pop all of the links for YY Kawaii down below.

A Japanese Haul – Pokemon Time Eievui Collection

This is a nerdy post today, and one I have been so excited to write too! These only arrived yesterday morning, but due to being away from home, I only got the chance a few hours ago to open these. Yes, this haul may be a bit quick to talk about, but it’s totally worth it.

Japan Loot is a website set up by the YouTuber Japanese Toy Collector who after reviewing certain toys from Japan, will put them up on the website to sell to people. How awesome is that? Of course when he reviewed some Eeveelution plushies, I knew I had to pick up the Eevee one, and I still love it to this day. Something I noticed about this seller, is how cheap he was selling certain items for in comparison to some websites and stores out there.

When he made a video about one of the items from the Eievui Collection, I just had to drop him an email and ask if he would be able to get anymore and sell those to me. Of course, he did and here I have a few little bits that I asked him to grab for me!

I only asked for three things, although I could have asked for a hell of aΒ  lot more! I do have my eye on the cute little plushies, but I’ll be good. I don’t need them… πŸ˜›

My package arrived in less than a week, which is amazing considering where it traveled from! I was delighted when I opened it to find this yellow bag, an official Pokemon Center bag! I’m going to make sure to cherish this until I can one day go to the store myself.

The three things I picked up was an iPhone 6 cover which as you can see is covered in all the Eeveelutions, a Vaporeon mobile phone strap, and a blind bag t-shirt. As I said previously, I do wish I had bought more!

In August I’ll be able to pick up a new phone, and of course I’ll be opting for the iPhone 6. I’ve had so many problems with my iPhone 5 that I just want a new phone now, that is MINE and not a refurbished one. So I decided I would treat myself to a case, one I know I’ll use loads and love just as much. I’ve been after a phone case that stands out for ages and in so many ways, this one will turn heads. Especially heads of Pokemon nerds like myself. Although it says it’s a soft case, it’s pretty durable and will keep your phone safe as well as looking cute! I really can’t wait to get an iPhone 6 now so I can put this on it. I mean, look how cute the different Eeveelutions are on it. As you can see all of them are separated, but at times are all together too, and have been paired together depending on what gen they’re from. It’s just an awesome pattern and is all over the collections print.

I have always wanted one of the mobile phone ear jack straps from the Pokemon Center, but until now I have never taken the plunge to pick one up. However, I couldn’t resist this cute little Vaporeon (probably my favourite Eeveelution!) This little guy is adorable and is also tiny! That doesn’t bother me though. The way these straps work is you plug it into your phone (or any other device such as 3Ds, or tablet) and it’ll dangle and be a little companion for your phone. BUT you can also use this as a little keyring for your keys, or as a little charm for your bag. I will probably use this on my phone but due to the possibilities this has, I may also pop it onto my car keys. I have a little Levi (from Attack on Titan) keyring on there so he could do with a friend. πŸ˜› I don’t have pictures of it because I only noticed it when I opened the packaging, but you see the card behind the strap? The other side of that has such a cute picture of Vaporeon on it!

Finally we have the purchase I was most excited about! The blind bag t-shirts. These sold out super quickly in the Pokemon Center’s and it took the seller a couple of visits to finally pick one up for me. Due to how rare these are, sellers are charging people through the teeth for these, which is just greedy! I was pretty lucky that I got mine for a decent price! Due to these being blind bagged, you don’t know which one you’ll get. I did have a few in mind that I was hoping to get. Either Eevee, Vaporeon, Flareon, Umbreon, or Sylveon. But this being said, I would have been happy with any! These t-shirts also come in a free size, which in Japan is a size L, probably a M male, L female in the UK. The t-shirt fits me really nicely and I’m so relieved, as I did worry it would be too small.

So I’m sure you’re all curious which one I got?

I GOT FLAREON! I’m really pleased with this for various reasons. Flareon is awesome, and I love wearing the colour red. I say it’s red, it’s more of an orange red, which is still awesome! One thing I noticed about this t-shirt when I tried it on was how it smelt. It smells like green tea matcha powder, which I love! I don’t know if this is intentional and even if it isn’t, it’s still awesome.

I’m so pleased with this t-shirt. It’s made of 100% cotton and the quality of it is amazing for how much they were selling for in Japan. I really want to buy another and depending how much I spend in London, will depend if I pick another up or not.

I’m going to be wearing this for Hyper Japan with my ripped skinny fits. I can’t wait!

So that was my haul from Japan. I want to thank the seller over at Japan Loot for grabbing these awesome items for me, I’m so happy with them and especially happy with how quick they arrived. He’s an awesome seller and I recommend you check his store and YouTube channel out. The links are at the start of the post.

Are you a Pokemon nerd like me? Have you ever wanted anything from the Pokemon Center? If so, make sure to let me know in the comments!

I’ve been so excited to write this post, and I hope my readers will enjoy it too.

Until next time all, take care and see you soon.
