If You’re A Hot Wheels Collector, Better Read This

If You’re A Hot Wheels Collector, Better Read This  I think that at some point of our lives, we tend to find something that really grows on us. Like, we become attached to it and we want to have more of it in our lives. I don’t know if you’ve found yours yet but I’m pretty confident that you eventually will. It just so happens that some people find this “thing” in their lives early while others discover it much later on.  If you’re not quite sure of what I’m talking about, well, I’m talking about your life collection. That’s right; I’m actually referring to collections as in objects that you like to hoard over long periods of time. Sometimes, even for life. Every person has that one special thing that they can’t get enough of. For example, stamps. Many people are in...

Tamagotchi On Review 2019

I just recently purchased the Fairy Pink Tamagotchi On from Barnes and Noble. Here's my thoughts after the first 24 hours. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing Tamagotchi On. Tamagotchi On is also known as Tamagotchi Meets in Japan and Tamagotchi Some in Korea. The Tamagotchi Meets has a lot of bugs which were all fixed for the English Tamagotchi On. The bugs included things such as draining the batteries in just a day or Tamagotchis getting glitched when they evolved. I also read that a lot of people received used looking Tamagotchi On from amazon who had badly scratched screens despite being brand new. Luckily mine was in perfect condition. I don't know if the scratched screens were just from Amazon, or maybe a bad batch, afterall it's been out for about 2 months now so my ...

Recast ABJD – A Year Later – Would I Still Recommend Purchasing Recast?

I shared my decision to purchase my first recast BJD, about 14 months ago now. I wrote a very in depth, as neutral as I could manage, post about the pros and cons of buying Recast ABJD which you can read here. A year has passed now since my first recast dolls arrived, and I have bought many other Recast BJD since then.   View this post on Instagram   My new #recastbjd #recastminifee #minifeesarang #minifee #sarang #recastfriendly #abjd #bjd #doll from #chinabjd.

Cortex Complete Smart Dolls Will Release Soon

According to this post on the official website, the first full, non-hybrid, cortex smartdolls will release for official launch in just 2 weeks on 6/13/19. The models available will include Mirai Anniversary, Gaia, and Melody. They will be fully assembled dolls, and not model kits. They had a soft launch of Mirai Anniversary and Gaia Complete Cortex dolls earlier this month, which I completely missed. I am anxious to see what the prices will be on the 13th when the official launch begins. The vinyl version Smart Dolls cost 52,000 yen, which is approximately $475 USD. For those not familiar with Japanese import dolls, such as Asian ball-jointed dolls or Dollfie Dream, this price may seem shocking. However, for those who are already collecting other similar dolls, these prices are qu

Doki Doki Crate May 2019 Subscription Box Review

A Doki Doki Representative reached out to me and offered me a choice of Doki Doki, Japan Crate, or Gacha Gacha Crate to review for my audience at Geeky Sweetie. I had subscribed to Doki Doki a few years ago and I was curious if it had improved any since then. So I selected to receive Doki Doki Crate. It just arrived the other day and I have mixed feelings about this crate. If you like what you see here, you can sign up to receive this May Sweet Dreams Crate on Doki Doki's website at https://japancrate.com/dokidoki As always, it was packed super well. The entire crate was stuffed full of kawaii cute items. The crate itself is bright pink and always includes a full color booklet showing the items inside the crate, and showing the lucky crate that one subscriber receives each month. Als

Dream Fairy Dolls – A Cheap Body For Dollfie Dream Doll Heads

Around Christmas time I bought myself a "Dream Fairy Doll" on Aliexpress - At the time it was on sale, $59.99 for fullset. I bought it mostly for the outfit as I didn't care that much for the face. But I figured the outfit alone was worth $59.99 and free shipping. She comes with a faceup, shoes, socks, underwear, dress, accessories, 2 pairs of hands, rooted hair head (not a wig sadly), eyes, and even a painted manicure on one set of her hands. And she's huge at 62 cm. She was packaged very nicely and the doll and her dress are high quality. From my understanding, and what other people have told me, Dream Fairy Dolls are not Recast, they are a cheap ABS doll similar to Hujoo but cheaper. I don't really care if it is recast because I'm pro recast or recast friendly, but I kn...

I Want To Take an Anime and Manga Tour in Japan

OMG... I want to do this. (Maybe Next Year - I don't have Vacation Time left this year since I will be going to Peru this summer) Their next tour is in just a few weeks, and seems to only happen once a year, in March coinciding with the International Anime Festival AnimeJapan. https://japandeluxetours.com/japan/group/anime-japan-tours#anime3 Visiting Japan is my life long dream. (sadly, mostly just so I can go shopping for anime, game, and doll stuff lol. Although I do want to do the museums and cherry blossoms and hot springs and other cultural things too - though mostly, I'm just a big geeky nerd who loves anime and wants to go shopping - which is what this whole tour is designed for <3) It's not that much money (well OK it is, but it's cheaper than I expected honestly).

Pusheen 2017 Spring Box Opening Review

Pusheen box continues to impress with large, big ticket items, and tons of exclusives. Pusheen 2017 Spring Box marks one year of my receiving this quarterly subscription crate, which first debuted in Winter 2015 (I missed out on the first box, boo). Ever since I joined in Spring 2016, I've never once been disappointed by the contents of my box, making it by far, the best subscription box for girls. I received my box in May, which happens to be my birthday, and inside, there's tons of birthday / party related goods - awesome coincidence. I could throw myself a Pusheen party, but don't have anyone to invite except for my cats lol. It came packaged in a cute Bunny / Easter themed Pusheen faced box. It included things like Photo Booth Props (some assembly required): ...

Pusheen Box has now been around for 1 full year - with the first box appearing in Winter 2015. The box is a quarterly subscription service full of cute officially licensed and exclusive Pusheen merchandise.

Each box includes a wide variety of items ranging from home goods, to toys, to clothing and wearable items. The Winter 2016 Pusheen Box features a ton of cute items. Take a look at my photos below! First look at the cute packaging which was changed slightly this month to include a "bow". #pusheen #pusheenbox #winterpusheenbox #kawaii #cute #cats #neko #quarterlysubscriptionbox #unboxing #boxopening #subscriptionbox #subscribe A photo posted by jenilee (@xenokitten) on ...

Nintendo Announces Limited Edition Black or White 3DS for $99.99

Nintendo announced plans to launch two new limited edition Nintendo 3DS handheld portable gaming systems on November 25th, 2016 for just $99.99. You can choose from either an all black, or all white, 3DS system with popular nintendo characters and icons embossed on the face plate. It's the first time an all black 3DS has been available outside of Japan, and also the first time that the 3DS has ever gone on sale for less than $100. There is no word on if this is just a temporary price cut for the holiday season, or a permanent new price for the entire 3DS lineup. I'm guessing that it will be the new standard price moving forward, as the new handheld, the Nintendo Switch, will be out in just under 4 months now. The Nintendo 3DS game library has some amazing games if you like RPG, Simul...

Loot Crate’s Sanrio “Small Gift Crate” Quarterly Subscription Box

UPDATE: My first Sanrio Small Gift Crate Has Arrived! Head here for box opening photos and my review. I just signed up for Loot Crate's brand new Sanrio "Small Gift Crate" which is a subscription box that arrives once every 3 months (4 times a year) similar to the Pusheen box, which I've reviewed here. This new crate costs 34.99 every three months and has $75+ worth of official and exclusive Sanrio goodies inside. I love Hello Kitty - so this was too cute to pass up. Hope to see some of my favorite Sanrio and Sanx characters make an appearance such as Chococat and Cinnamoroll. They ask for your shirt size when you sign up so you can expect some wearable goodies too! Probably a mix of toys, figurines, stickers, plushies, stationary, accessories, fashion goodies, and maybe some home
