In which I get and review the very first Toreba prize I ever won — which, weirdly enough, showed up not that long ago. Toreba is — well, it’s Toreba. I’m not excessively ashamed to admit that earlier this year I played it way too much and spent way too much on it, and yet […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Sumikko Gurashi Mug Cup w/ Lid
In which a fluke nets me an awfully cute little pup. I almost feel bad writing this entry, because it was only getting another order of Toreba prizes in the mail (and you’ll be hearing plenty about those, believe me!) that reminded me that I had this sweet little guy sitting around and not written […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Amuse Pocket Dog Daishuugou Big Plush (Jack Russell Terrier)
In which I really, really want a goofy plush, and then really, really love that goofy plush. I get the most inexplicable Toreba obsessions sometimes, and this ガブガブうつぼ ながBIGぬいぐるみ (Gabu-gabu Utsubo Naga BIG Nuigurumi, Big Long Gulping Moray Eel Plushy) from Amuse is a perfect example. I spent more than I care to admit trying to […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Big Long Gulping Moray Eel Plush
In which I eat my words, but they’re delicious. A couple of entries ago, I said that licensed prize plush are often of lower quality than those not based on popular licenses, and I gave examples of Pokemon and Healin Good PreCure. I don’t know why I said the latter, actually, since this is the […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Healin Good PreCure Latte Plush
In which no plushy dinosaur is safe from my crane game “skills,” and no two dinosaurs are quite alike, no matter what I thought. During my biggest Toreba-addict days, I got obsessed for a bit with stuffed dinosaurs. You know what they say about clinging to good childhood stuff when things get tough? That’s me […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Plushy Dinosaur Hunt x4!
In which I don’t have to understand the design to love the design. Another win from my recent Toreba haul — I had to try for this one since the very premise made me smile. Why did they decide to make Sumikko as cave people? Why Penguin? and Neko in particular? I don’t know for […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Sumikko Gurashi Primitive Era Plush XL Neko
In which another darling little Rem joins my collection for an awesome bargain price. Yet another delight from my recent amiami order — this Taito prize figure, Rem Doll Crystal. I got her “used” (brand new figure, slight box damage) for less than ten dollars! I can see from the branding that this is specifically […]Read More Anime Goods: Re:Zero: Rem Doll Crystal
In which another figure in this series simply thrills me.Read More Anime Goods: Re:Zero: FuRyu SSS Milky Way Rem
In which I get a lucky win and pass the luck on.Read More The Get List: Toreba: Sumikko Gurashi Projector Light x2 + Giveaway!
In which, if life’s got to be janky sometimes, we remind ourselves there is charm in the jank. I guess I can’t really call this a review blog. It’s really me taking about things I specifically sought out, usually made by companies like Movic or Sanrio or San-x that are known for creative and high […]Read More The Get List (Gaiden): Yell Funwari Yuru-Yuru Dinosaur x 8
