I have been kindly sent their latest Stationery Pack for November to share with you all today, which is one of ZenPop‘s most popular subscription boxes. It’s also a special pack as it’s celebrating ZenPop‘s third year anniversary and it’s themed Sumikko Bakery, so let’s check it out!
Sumikko Gurashi Memo Pad
This cute little memo pad is the perfect size for popping into your school or handbag and features two patterns over 100 sheets. Sumikko means ‘corner’ and Gurashi means ‘to live’ and the characters are named as such as they are very shy and like to live or stay in the corner – how cute!
Sumikko Gurashi Pencil Caps
In Japan, Pencil Caps are often used to protect the lead of your pencil from breaking and to prevent other things in your pencil case from getting dirty. As the Japanese like to add cuteness to everything, these pencil caps feature Sumikko Gurashi characters.
Sumikko Gurashi Pencil & I Heart Kawaii ZenPop Pen
Keeping with the Sumikko Gurashi theme, there’s also a pencil featuring these adorable characters and an original pen which is ZenPop’s first designed stationery item.
Sumikko Gurashi Eraser Set
In your Stationery Pack, you’ll discover an Eraser Set featuring one of two Sumikko Gurashi themed designs. I received the Baguette version which has smaller erasers included.
ZIG Art & Graphic Twin Pen
For those who enjoy drawing and brush pens, this two-in-one item has a brush and fine end for all of your drawing needs. You’ll receive one of six autumnal colours – mine arrived in Deep Green.
Pan Bungu Stickers
In Japan, they have lots of unique and weird types of bread and this sticker sheet features some of the most popular ones that you can find in most Japanese bakeries such as anpan and melonpan.
Happy Food Mini Joint Stamp
This mini Joint Stamp has cute food and cafe designs which are stacked together for ease of use. Have fun decorating your notebooks and calendars!
Pikachu Pan Washi Tape
No Japanese stationery box is complete without some Washi Tape and this one has Pikachu on it! Unroll the tape and you’ll find him making a range of food items such as cupcakes, hot dogs, doughnuts and more.
Magnet Bookmark Fusen
My favourite item in this ZenPop Stationery Pack is this adorable Cinnamoroll magnetic bookmark. Not only is it super cute and practical at the same time, but it also has 15 small pieces of ‘fusen’ (sticky notes) in the middle so that you can take note of anything interesting that you’re reading or studying – how clever!
