Are you ready for more gashapon that are perfect for your dolls and for your (in my case imaginary) doll house?! Then let’s begin right away! 😉
I was so happy, when I found these! These keyrings (the actual keyrings can be super easily removed) came in two different designs with tons of different color variations. The first design imitates an oldschool camera, which looks pretty cool. But I had to play three times until I got the modern looking DSLR, which I really wanted for my dolls to have. Both kinds light up by pressing a button in accordance with a super fake sounding shutter noise. From my experience, I only saw this machine once and it sold out pretty quickly. Also the sound and light effect is already broken on one camera and pretty weak on another, which let’s me guess that they are pretty old. So get on it as long as you still can!
Craftholic Plush Keyrings
Before visiting Japan this autumn, I had never seen the Craftholic plushies before, which are super big and soft. One day I will own one of them and only have the sweetest dreams-forever! In the meantime, my dollies will be getting their sleep in with their tiny plushies out of a gashapon machine. These keyrings have been pretty much around everywhere and are just as soft as the original!
Traditional Style Japanese Beauty Tools
This series is so amazing! I managed to get one of each with the exception of the container, but I am over the moon in love with everything I got out of the machine. This includes a make-up palette with an extra brush, a mirror and a comb with a decorative hairpin. The hairpin is just for show and I might glue it on an actual pin to make it functional, but the rest are the most beautiful props ever. I saw this series here and there, but always selling out super fast. Super recommended, whether you love your dolls dressed up in traditional Japanese clothes or not!
I love Sumikko Gursahi a lot! They are the sweetest characters and this year there is a big trend of light-up gashapon going on, which is super interesting and awesome. These figures are out of squishy plastic and light up in various colors as soon as your finger is touching both metal contacts at the bottom. I got two figures out of five: Shirokuma (the ice bear) and Pengin? (the green penguin, who is not sure, if he actually is a penguin or a kappa). I imagine these figures being really nice lamps in dollhouses in your dolls’ living and/or bedroom. Thanks to Sumikko Gurashi’s 5th anniversary and the characters’ general popularity, this series of gashapon is widely distributed. They are so much fun!
Thank you so much for reading!
