If You Pre-Ordered a Vacanze Bag from Pulse…

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Pulse received their shipment of tokidoki Vacanze print bags today, yaaay! If you pre-ordered from them, check for a phone or e-mail message from Casey if you haven’t received one already. If you didn’t pre-order, you can send them an e-mail to see which Vacanze bag styles they have left after filling their pre-orders. I know that they are sold out of Vacanze denaros.

LeSportsac.com Update: tokidoki Vacanze Print Coming Next Week

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Reader SJL just spoke to a representative at LeSportsac and was told that Vacanze print bags would be up on LeSportsac.com next week! I’m going to add the caveat that the info that LeSportsac reps give out is not always completely confirmed, but for what it’s worth, get ready. :) Also, the luckybreaks6 25% off coupon code for LeSportsac.com expires on November 1st*. I’m *guessing* that means that the Vacanze bags will be up on November 2nd.

* UPDATE:  The code doesn’t expire until December 3rd!

More tokidoki x Hello Kitty Collaboration Photos

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

Found on KT Sanctuary Hello Kitty Blog – with props to reader SJL for pointing this out – more photos of the items being released in the upcoming tokidoki x Hello Kitty collaboration!! I see a bunch more bag styles, all of which have the same basic print as the bag in my last tokidoki x Hello Kitty post, but even more exciting – plush toys! Hello Kitty dressed as a cactus friend, a small Bastardino plush, and hopefully more…

Rumor: New Line of tokidoki Bags in 2008

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Reader Cleofe sent in this exciting news:  she talked to a shop owner who said that his store will be carrying a new line of tokidoki bags in 2008!   According to the shop owner, who said that he met with Simone, next year tokidoki is releasing their own line of bags that will be distributed and marketed by LeSportsac, but won’t be LeSportsac bags.  So, those of us who were hoping to give our wallets a rest in 2008 might be out of luck.  :)  This is all the info that I have right now, but if I hear anything else, I’ll post an update.

New tokidoki Vinyl Cactus Kitties: Bruttino and Carina

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

STRANGEco has just announced the names of the new Cactus Friends cat vinyl toys that were on display at the Yoyamart signing last week: Bruttino is the blue cactus kitty (not Gatto Spinoso like I was assuming), and Carina is the white cactus kitty.

Each one is going to be only 2 inches tall, which should help us estimate the size of the upcoming cactus dog blind box figures to be about 1 inch tall. They are so cute, I can’t wait!! Bruttino and Carina are due to be released in early December.

More Photos from tokidoki at Yoyamart + tokidoki Plush Updates

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Reader Diana took some cellphone photos of the plush toys at the tokidoki signing at Yoyamart – as you will see, the Mozzarella plush doll, which was originally due to be released back in February, has resurfaced. The Mozzarella plush is now slated to be released in early November, and, if Vinyl Splatter‘s dates are accurate, the long-lost Sandy plush doll should also be released at the end of this month!
