An afternoon text message from Iris alerted me to the arrival of Japanese magazines Cutie and Sweet at Kinokuniya. She informed me that the latest issue of Cutie is bundled with a Care Bears mirror and a Care Bears pouch, while Sweet is giving away a large Cher tote and a pass case.
I didn’t get Sweet but I pounced on Cutie (S$16.40 before the Kinokuniya discount) – the Care Bears are adorable, plus I love pouches – and bought it without really examining what the gwps looked like…
…but was in turned charmed and impressed by the sweetness and quality of the two items when I opened the gift box at home. Excellent Jap mag giveaways, both! ♥
You can watch a video about them here, where you will see that the mirror is big and the pouch roomy (it’s almost as big as the magazine itself).
Incidentally, there is a new Care Bear exclusive to Japan known as Sweet Sakura Bear. Here’s a warm Care Bear hug to you, Iris dear! :D
