Stationary Week – Tokidoki

It’s Stationary week and we were lucky to receive a parcel of stationary from GMC Group.
The girls were so excited opening the parcel.

Tokidoki is a fusion of Japanese popular culture and trendy European design. It’s loved by fans of manga (Japanese style comic books) and kawaii (cute things in popular Japanese culture.) Tokidoki means ‘sometimes’ in Japanese and the designer, Simone Legno, chose the word because he feels “everyone waits for moments that change ones destiny, by chance or by meeting a new person.”

We instantly fell in love with the larger than life characters adorning this stationary. There is the gorgeous Donutella and her sweet friends, who came to earth in their donut shaped UFOs. Then there is the Cactus friends who adorn cactus shaped suits to keep them safe. The Unicornos spend their time between earth and a magical world where they were transformed from ponies to Unicorns by a magic waterfall. The Moofia were formed to take on school bullies! Milk is power, milk is protection.
The lovely new stationary features all these characters and more. It would be hard to choose a favourite they are all so cute.

The colouring book was a big favourite as we love colouring in this house, that’s all of us, me included. It features so many of the characters and beyond cute. I love that the pages are one sided so you can use ink and not worry about it bleeding through and spoiling the next page. The book has 32 pages to colour.

The Postcard book is fabulous. You can send either a coloured in card or colour one in, or even send one for your friend to colour in. Each coloured card has a matching black and white one to colour. They are good quality cards with spaces for address and messages on the back. Each card is perforated for easy removal. There are 40 designs in total.

We also received some lovely notebooks in the package, both hard back and flexi. The girls snapped these up as they love their books as much as I do. Boo also snapped up the 365 days journal called ‘My Inspired Life’ If you’ve ever had a journal and not known what to write in it then this is book for you. Each of the 365 pages has a question for you to answer about your personal life.
Star grabbed the spiral bound sketch book for her drawings.

The Tokidoki Stationary items are sure to be a big hit with the kids (And adults) especially if they like anything at all cute and useful.

Disclosure: We received a pack of Tokidori stationary in return for our honest review.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
