here's a recent haul of sanrio merch! I've was never really into sanrio that much (I mostly had san-x
plushies as a kid) but I got into the brand recently. I'm specifically collecting items that were released before
the year 2000 (+ a few other things,,, coming later lol)
since plushies can take up so much space I usually avoid owning more than one plush for each character (unless it's a character I really love ofc) so after looking up a bunch of pre-2000 hello kitty plush I landed on this silver angel christmas plush,,, that had a bunch of listings set at a crazy amount T__T
I'm aiming to collect one pre-2000 plush of every sanrio character that I could get *but* I wanted to avoid just settling for a plush if there were other one's I wanted more so I was like. hemming and hawing for a while debating if I should just get a cheaper HK plush but!! two weeks later I randomly searched for "hello kitty plushies" and managed to find my HK silver angel grail for around 4USD / 400JPY!!
Glad I put my foot down and was just like. I'll wait till' she pops up at a cheaper price lol. I'm super happy + she still comes with her tag in good condition.
other than older sanrio plushies I also like a lot of the more uncommon characters so I got this Pofu plush + a collapsible HK basket from 2003. I also picked up some ziplocks from daiso (I think?)
Silver Angel HK . . . . . . . . . ¥400
Pofu Plush . . . . . . . . . ¥500
HK Basket . . . . . . . . . ¥120
Ziplocks . . . . . . . . . ¥200
next I really got into collecting sugarbunnies (very painful)! I had no idea how much they went for when I bought my first one (which I got for like 1USD/100JPY),,, The first one I bought is in the pic (the one in the shirt), I wanted to include it since I just got it out of storage along with the san-x plush.
the bear on the right is from a 1992 set of LTS plushies (no tag unfortuntely :() that I'm hoping to complete and the mocha plush is a cute battery operated plushie that plays two different christmas songs when you click the paw.
also got some pre-2000 pompompurin + pokopon merch!
last of my haul is a kimba plush + some sekiguchi plushies of dick bruna characters. I didn't pay attention to the sizes oops (they're all from different sellers) so I'm a bit sad their heights don't match ._.
Kimba Plush . . . . . . . . . ¥410
Sekiguchi Dog . . . . . . . . . ¥210
Sekiguchi Cat . . . . . . . . . ¥180
Sekiguchi Dalmatian . . . . . . . . . ¥120
little bit about this plush, I got it as a gift from my mom when I was a kid and I've been trying to find more information about it + the character but the only thing I've been able to find is the official san-x page, a mercari listing of an eraser + a flickr photo of a memo set TT_TT
I can't seem to find plushies of the other kumachoko that look like this nor much of any other merch ,,, though I do plan on making a little shrine page for kumachoko + translate the san-x page.
for fun I made a tierlist of sanrio characters ranked by how much I like them + how much I'd want a plush/merch of them! I think out of the most popular sanrio characters (on the rankings list), pompompurin (and maybe cinna but I like his friends more) would be the only one I'd get more than one plush of. I'm actually having a really tough time looking for a my melody plush (that was released before 2000) that I like rn _(:3\
