TokiDoki Blind Box Haul

Hey lovelies! It's been absolutely ages since I've had the opportunity to buy blind boxes and it's been like torture for me! It will be no surprise to my regular readers that I adore blind boxes and surprise subscription boxes, and it's felt like forever since I was able to share my love for them with you all. Until now, yay!! I recently did a huge TokiDoki blind box haul, and so I wanted to show you all the wonderful figures I got. Enjoy!  

TokiDoki Blind Box

TokiDoki is an Italian brand, established in 2005, that sell all sorts of mechandrise showcasing their super cute Japanese kawaii-culture inspired characters! I first discovered this awesome brand when I was in my teens, when I spotted a Hello Kitty X TokiDoki collaberation plushie whilst out shopping with my friends in Manchester. It was so adorable! Hello Kitty in a cactus costume with a mini chilli friend with the sweetest expression on it's face! Ever since, I've been a fan of the brand but I never saw any of their products in local shops and the online shopping option was too pricey for me back then. When I was a little older, I learnt that they made vinyl figures sold in blind boxes and was so excited! I love collecting figures, I have since I was little. After watching lots of youtube unboxing videos, I finally caved into temptation and saved up to buy some. And thus, my TokiDoki blindbox passion obsession began. 

If you've been following me for a while now, you'll have probably seen some of my Unicorno posts (If not, why not check some of them out here & here?). I have now collected almost all of the Unicorno Series 4 figures, so this recent haul was originally supposed to just consist of several Series 4 boxes to try to complete my set; however I got a little carried away as you can see, haha! 

I ordered several of the Cactus Pets range because I only just learnt about their existence and I am in love! I lalso bought some of the newest releases- Unicorno Series 5 and Mermicorno Series 2, as well as a Moofia Series 2, a Sushi Car and a Donutella blind box. So... it's about time I revealed the figures that I found inside!*pic heavy*

TokiDoki Cactus Pets

LOOK HOW ADORABLE THESE GUYS ARE! How could I not fall in love at first sight!? I realy love the TokiDoki Cactus Friends characters and have always hoped they would make some standard sized figures of them. They have previously released Cactus Kitties and Cactus Pups collections but the figures are mini, and so I decided they were not value for money and never bought any. So, you can imagine my delight when the Cactus Pets range was brought to my attention! I just love how unique the Cactus characters are, and I'm an animal lover so this combination of cute creatures and spikey outfits is perfect for me! I really like how the spikes on each figure are more than one colour. I also just really like how bright and cheerful the Cactus Pets look! 

The first Cactus Pet that I opened was the frog, who's name is Roger (how cute is that!?) and I was so happy since the frog and the Peanut the hamster are my favourites in the collection. My least favourite was the purple chick, but when I actually saw this figure in person it's a lot cuter than I thought it was. I was glad to get some of the two cats available in the collection. This pretty kitty is called Luna and she reminds of a Siamese cat. I love the shade of blue that they've used for her. The turtle's shell is covered in hearts and is a lovely figure. I adore his little smiley face! Which Cactus Pet do you like best out of the ones I received?

I was really looking forward to checking out the fifth series of the Unicorno figures, and although I didn't get the characters that I most wanted, I was still happy with the ones I did get. They are so vibrant! It was also interesting to see how they've changed the figures. The previous unicornos have had tails that were moveable and these ones don't. Also, the symbols and patterns on the unicorns are made of a different material which feels almost like a sticker, even though it's not. I don't know how they keep coming up with so many new designs but the artists over at TokiDoki always do a fantastic job!

TokiDoki Mermicorno Series 2

Even thought I don't plan on collecting each entire Mermicornos collections, I think they are such gorgeous little figures and meramaids are awesome so I couldn't not buy at least one from this new series. I already have one from Series 1 so it only seemed right, any excuse to buy blind boxes basically! I didn't get any of my favourites again, but Perlina is pretty and I love her summery colouration. I love the two-toned horn, and how her little pearl bow matches her mane. I've not very keen on the purple tail in contrast to the other colours on the figure but it's lovely nonetheless. 

As for my Unicorno Series 5 figures, aren't they awesome? Of course, I adore the kawaii themed 'Tokimeki' with her candy land mane and colourful stars. The little pink teddy tear is a fabulous addition to her look too! The other figure from this collection that I got is 'Kinoko' which means mushroom in Japanese, and I have always loved cute mushroom print things! Although all of the bold colours combined with these make me think of psychedelic artwork. I'm happy to add these unicorns to my overgrowing collection :)

Above are the Donutella & Friends, Moofia Series 2 and Sushi Cars figures that were waiting for me inside their very pretty boxes. That's something that I love about the TokiDoki blind boxes, they have such colourful and well-decorated boxes. They all have different designs for each collection and have lovely illustrations of all of the characters you can expect in the series. I love the shape of the Donutella blind boxes, it's not like any other blind box packaging I've seen. The boxes for Moofia characters are also in a milk cartoon-style box... like how great an idea is that!? 


TokiDoki Donutella and Her Sweet Friends


TokiDoki Moofia Series 2

TokiDoki Sushi Cars

I was surprised to get Donutella herself in my 'Donutella & Her Sweet Friends' blind box. I wanted one of her kitty or puppy friends but I can't complain at getting the main character in the collection. I love the look of donuts with rainbow sprinkes and they are all over the figures in this set, which are all sweet treat theme without most of them of course being donut related. I love Donutella's pink hair and socks, and how she's posed like a ballerina almost. I'll admit that I really didn't want to get one of the yogurt figures inside my Moofia box, but I did. I also bought my niece some surprise boxes (she loves blind box figures now, I'm a bad influence!) and she got one of my favourite characters... typical! As much as I didn't want a yogurt, I still like how he's a little greek yogurt and he's got ancient greek sandals on, and a pattern similar to those you would find on pottery artifacts from that era! 

How adorable is my Sushi Car figure though!? And for once, I got the one I wanted first time around! I had my heart set on this Palette figure because she's one of my most loved TokiDoki characters. I love the Series 4 Unicorno that is inspired by her, and I love this car! The figure is called 'Palette: California Rollin'. I really like the expression on this sushi's face because it makes me think of Studio Ghibli's Totoro. Who agrees? The wheels on these figures don't move which is a shame but I didn't expect them to since these are not toys as the boxes like to remind us!

TokiDoki Unicorno Series 4

I didn't manage to get my two missing figures to complete my set of Series 4 Unicornos. They are both chasers (these are rarer figures that are harder to get), which you have a 1/48 chance of finding. I neeeeed them *cry cry*. I'm actually selling these four figures since they are duplicates so let me know if you're interested. Left to Right: Ruby, Yuma, Sirena & Yuki (aka Elsa Pony!). 

TokiDoki Collectable Figures

You've reached the end of today's post and if you didn't know how much I love these figures, you certainly do now! I actually squeal when I open these boxes, haha. I'd love to hear your opinions on the figures that I got in my TokiDoki blind box haul: who's your favourite? your least favourite? Have I made you want to buy some for yourself? I always get my TokiDoki figures from a UK based online store called Collect & Display. If you're into collectable figures, you should definitely check them out and they have a reward points system too which you can build up with every purchase and get money off your future orders! I hope you enjoyed this post :)

Thankyou for reading!
