Reader Bree let me know that the tokidoki online shop just added more items from the tokidoki for Hello Kitty line (letter sets, notebooks, cellphone charms, pens, mirror, cosmetic pouches, and business card case). Skeletrino and Skeletrina just popped up in their toys section as well.
Archive for June, 2008
It looks like new items from the summer 2008 nautical clothing collection aren’t quite done filtering out yet. I just found another new item that I haven’t seen anywhere else yet on Trendy Stars – a grey strappy jumper. It looks like the ties at the shoulders make the strap length adjustable, which is a nice touch.
Also a reminder that we are at the halfway point for submitting contest entries – make sure to get them in by Thursday, June 26th at 11:59pm EST!
I just received my Skeletrino and Skeletrina vinyl toys from The Giant Peach – that was quick! They are soOoO cute that I think they are my new favorite toys (of course, I think I say that every time a new tokidoki toy gets released – but they do just keep getting cuter & cuter!). Here they are making themselves right at home in a cozy corner of my toy shelf already:
Bonus notation: Reader Sarah gave me the heads up that Karmaloop just added a new page of tokidoki for Hello Kitty clothing. As always, you can use rep code SR426 for a 20% discount at checkout.
Reader Ku`uipo just let me know that she received a call telling her that the tokidoki Spiaggia print re-release is happening tomorrow! Doors open at 9:30am at the Ala Moana LeSportsac store. As with the other tokidoki bag print re-releases, the Spiaggia print re-release is happening at LeSportsac stores in Hawaii and Guam only.
It’s time for another contest – this time with some truly amazing prizes! There will be three winners, and I will start by telling you about the goodies, which will be generously donated by tokidoki themselves.
FIRST PLACE PRIZE: a limited edition tokidoki for Mikasa soccer ball (only 1,000 of these balls are being made) and the THREE newest tokidoki skate decks.
SECOND PLACE PRIZE: a limited edition tokidoki for Mikasa soccer ball and a signed poster.
THIRD PLACE PRIZE: a limited edition tokidoki for Mikasa soccer ball.
So what do you need to do to enter? Create either a YouTube video* or a photograph** that explains what you would do with the tokidoki soccer ball if you win one. The top 3 most creative videos/photos will win the prizes listed above. Comment on this post to let me know that you plan to enter, and then submit your entries via e-mail to email@example.com. I will then forward the entries on to tokidoki, who will be judging the contest.
If you’re feeling a little creatively challenged, I’ll start you off with an idea: your entry could for instance show a unique way that you would put the ball on display in your home.
The deadline for entries is Thursday, June 26th at 11:59pm EST. Winners will be announced
on Friday, June 27th as soon as tokidoki sends me the results.
*Need to know how to make a YouTube video? Learn how here!
**Each person’s submission(s) will count collectively as a single entry, but there is no limit to the number of uses for the ball that you may think up. If this means sending in multiple photos or videos then by all means go for it.
Have arrived at The Giant Peach! Could they be any cuter?!
Who else is getting them? As both a tokidoki and cat fanatic, I must!
The limited edition tokidoki for Mikasa soccer ball that I blogged about below just got added to the tokidoki online store. That was quick! It is built to FIFA specifications and the retail price is $150.
Tobi just added some tokidoki items to their 30% off clearance sale (thanks to reader Patricia for letting me know).
Karmaloop added some tokidoki jewelery to their inventory, and rep code SR426 is still valid for 20% off.
The official tokidoki blog just posted that they will be offering a limited edition tokidoki for Mikasa soccer ball in the tokidoki.it online store next week. Just in time for the European Soccer Championships! Reader Bridget sent me a photo that she snapped of a prototype of the ball at NYCC this year:
And here is an official product photo, including what the packaging will look like:
Readers Janet and Sophie let me know that there is an announcement in the kidrobot forums that this year’s SDCC exclusive tokidoki designed vinyl toy will be the 8 inch dunny pictured below (retail price: $50).
And for those who have been wondering, Simone Legno will be signing these exclusive dunnys from 11am-2pm at SDCC on July 27th.
Reader Bridget also let me know that there will be a mini tokyoplastic geisha designed by Simone Legno as a ToyTokyo exclusive at the SDCC next month. She saw it at the ToyTokyo offices and will try to snap a picture for us before SDCC.
Update: here is the geisha photo, thanks to Will in the comments.
It will cost $40 at the ToyTokyo booth at SDCC, and it is approximately 4 inches tall.
