♡ A day at Sanrio Puroland | sparkling Christmas 2022! ♡

Hello sweet angels!

For today’s blog post, I’m so excited to be sharing a little about my most recent trip to Sanrio Puroland…! ♪ I decided to visit in early November, when they introduced this years Christmas theme, ‘sparkling pink christmas’ ꒰⑅ˊ͈ ˙̫ ˋ͈⑅꒱

I’ve also posted a short video vlog on instagram if you haven’t already seen it!


♡ Travelling to Puroland ♡



To get to Puroland, I had about a hour-long tube journey from Shinjuku-sanchome station. Although I was a bit nervous travelling by myself, it went very smoothly and the tube system was easy to navigate! I also got to travel half of the journey in a woman’s-only carriage, which was a relief as the train was quite busy. By the time I’d arrived at Keio-Tama-Center station, it was initially a little confusing as there weren’t the classic Puro decorations that I remembered from the last time I visited (which i also wrote a blog about!), but then I realised it was because my train was just further out from the centre of the station. Then, following the directions, I’d arrived at the adorable front gates…!



Because I was travelling there on a weekday, and had bought my ticket the night before, there was no queue and I was able to walk in easily. I’d really recommend buying your ticket ahead of visiting the park, as I’m sure the ticket queue is much bigger on the weekend…! however, I did have to show my passport, which was a little strange as I wasn’t requested to do this at Disney or Universal…?♡


♡ Lady Kitty’s Palace 





Once I was there, I immediately headed to the beautiful palace of Lady Kitty …! This is one of my favourite parts of the park as everything is the *perfect* shade of pink, with many beautiful girly and princessy details. This part of the park has a shopping section, various photo spots, and Kitty‘s home! The queue was quite short, and I only had to wait about ten minutes


Once we were welcomed into Lady Kitty‘s house, there were so many pretty spots for photos and to have fun! I really loved this closet, that opens up to reveal a giant bear! It was such a surprise as I’d been standing in front of it hehe



Then before meeting Lady Kitty, I decided to take some photos…!The lighting in puroland is actually quite nice for selfies, and all the makeup products in Lady Kitty‘s room are giant, so it makes it feel like you’re a doll…! For todays code, I’d decided to wear this Liz Lisa x My Melo print dress from my previous post with the Donki My Melo crocs, knee high socks, and accessories from Paris Kids and Lafary (as well as My Melo ears bought from the puro shop, of course!)




I then queued to get my photo with Lady Kitty, although to be honest I wasn’t so bothered…! I’m just a My Melody fan, although I’d definitely stay in this beautiful mansion if it meant I could sleep in this beautiful bed, hehe



Before I left Lady Kitty‘s realm, I had to get the classic photo in her strawberry carriage…!♡ Despite being alone on this trip, I worked up the courage to talk to someone and ask her to take my photo…!~♪ And I’m really happy I did, as this family were so sweet and friendly, and took some photos for me that I really like. If you’re travelling alone, don’t be afraid to ask others for help taking pictures, everyone is really kind♡ 



♡ Cinnamoroll anniversary café 




I decided to visit this limited cafe as it was super pretty, and seemed to have beautiful sweets…! The sparking Christmas only had meat dishes available, so I wanted to get something that was vegan (or, more realistically, vegetarian) friendly, but still cute and tasty. I also visited early to avoid queuing, which seemed to be a good idea as when I passed this cafe a couple hours later, there was a long queue…!~



I decided to get the milk cheesecake and banana milk set, with this pretty strawberry jelly yogurt drink~ overall, everything tasted quite nice!

 I’m not a huge fan of milk in general, but it looked so cute, it was fun to pose and take photos with hehe~ as for the cheesecake, it was a little confusing as the base is actually a piece of waffle…? Regardless, it was simple but tasty. The drink was very sweet (as you can probably tell from the photo, hehe!) and overall, it was okay. I probably wouldn’t order these items again, but they make for a cute photo? And, I suppose, the event is limited, so they’re somewhat special



♡ My Melody’s room 




After my very sweet meal, I headed to my most anticipated part of the park: My Melo’s room! This area is mainly a shop, with some cute photo spots. The last time I was here, it looked completely different, but honestly it’s even cuter now…! ꒰#’ω`#꒱੭


The entrance had this adorable christmas tree that you could take photos with…! Lots of people had brought along oshigoto goods to use as photo props, and it was too cute! I took some photos of my Madoka-chan and Jyushi-kun plushies with it, which I’ll be posting on my instagram around Christmas time~


One of my favourite photo spots is this adorable My Melody with a little heart…! And of course, the beautiful cherry blossom table. I took some photos here, thanks to the lovely girls in the queue behind me who also loved My Melo



This cake really added a special feel to the room, it was just so beautiful..! Everything was pastel pink, and I felt so happy being surrounded by the beautiful sakura and My Melo goods


After having an amazing time shopping, I decided to visit my favourite ride: My Melo drive! ♪
 You can see the full video on my instagram reel, my favourite part is seeing baby Melo!! I just adore all the sweet characters in My Melo‘s life, and getting the cute photo taken (that you can decorate…!) I’m still getting used to how quickly purikara asks you to edit photos, but eventually I’ll decorate in time hehe!


Finally, I went to view the sparkling christmas show, which was absolutely adorable!
Cogimyun had her own little singing solo which was too cute, although unfortunately by this point it had gotten super crowded, so it was hard to see…! I couldn’t wait to see the performance from the front row as I had very little time before rushing off to see a friend in Akihabara, but next time when I’m not so busy I’ll make sure to sit front row and get good photos to share with you!

Here’s a summary of all the things that I’d ended up purchasing…! As I’d already been to a few Sanrio stores prior, I didn’t go too crazy and just bought the things that I’d really wanted… as well as a Hypmic Samatoki figure and Pui Pui Molcar cable bite, hehe!


Overall, I had an incredible time and would really recommend Sanrio puroland to anyone considering going, it’s just such a happy and fun place. Everyone was so nice to me, and a few people even recognised the print that I was wearing !! ♡

My main advice would be to try and get there as early as possible, as many popular merchandise and food items will sell out quickly. Additionally, take lots of photos, and start sitting to wait for the live show at least half an hour before it starts if you want a good view!

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day~

♡ Mama chapp doll unboxing! | Moko-chan - 1/6 - Kindergarten Ver. Rabbit Set ♡

 Hello cuties!

For todays blog post, I’m so excited to share a review of this adorable mama chapp doll that i recently found secondhand on mercari.jp, via buyee.jp…! Actually, this purchase was kind of lucky as recently I’ve been saving for my holiday and hadn’t been checking mercari obsessively everyday like I used to, but thankfully saw this listing in time!~

I’ve had this doll on my wishlist for quite some time, praying that she would show up for a good price one day…. and she did! She was only ¥4,980 yen (approx £31) without shipping, and shipping was £17, which is a little steep, but worth it for the total cost of this doll~♪ 


 Company photos 





This sweet doll was released in 2007, and has two variants: the rabbit set and chick set. As you can see, i bought the rabbit set…!♪ Other than the adorable bunny theme, I also adore this set because of her baby pink x red outfit, the colour scheme is too adorable. She also has this sweet tulip pocket, matching with her friend!



One thing that I love about mama chapp dolls is that they look so cute with the variant doll of the set, like sisters or friends…! It’s a great series for picky doll collectors, because if you love a dolls design but don’t like a particular variant, there’s usually at least one or two more varieties with different outfit and hair colours!  


 Now that I've shown the company photos, lets look at Moko-chan irl…!♡ 



Although I adore many features these dolls have, their boxes aren’t one of them…! They’re very plain and the colour isn’t so cute. However, that doesn’t really bother me as I’m not someone who displays their dolls in-box.



My first impression is… waaaa she’s so cute!!~ as always, the detail in Mama chapp dolls is incredible. In my previous post, I mentioned that they have a obitsu 11 body, so she can share clothes with my other dolls!


Her shirt has this sweet Peter Pan collar, with a little bunny pin that has her name on it. this is probably a little nitpicky, but despite this doll sculpt being called Moko, it would be nice if each doll had a different name, for displaying purposes- but then again, it doesn’t really matter 


Here’s a little close up of all the accessories included in this set. The little ribbons in her hair are absolutely adorable! You could display her with the little yellow hat too, perfect for outings in sunny weather, or rainy? Either way, she is very sensibly dressed..!


Moko-chan has this adorable baby pink gingham set for her inner wear. The ribbon tie at the back is such a lovely touch, and matches her hairstyle! You could coordinate this top with the fluffy pastel skirts Azone have produced too…!


I also tried changing her hands to some of my favourite obitsu hands included in this set! They look a lot more natural than the default hands, and are perfect for holding plushies


As lovely as the bunny themed bag is, sadly it does not open… fortunately, Moko-chan has a giant pocket with a tulip on to store cute things in. The skirt and top are really well made, with stirring on the sleeves of the top and clasps on the back of each piece. 


Her skirt is also high waisted and would look so cute coordinated with an oversized jumper or top…! Although most of my dolls clothes are pink and white, I’d love to try and coordinate a bright and cute summer outfit with it  




 Final thoughts for Moko-chan♡ 


Overall, this doll is just so so perfect! Her bright and cheerful colour scheme brings a smile to my face, and she just looks so cute and pretty


I would definitely recommend this doll if you find her for sale…! She’s absolutely adorable and has already brightened up my shelf

Thank you so much for reading angels…! I hope that this review did justice to how cute Moko-chan is, and that this was fun to readI’m hoping to create a little mama chapp shrine in my room hehe, these dolls are just *so* adorable!! 





Lots of love, 

Evie xox
