International Swap

You must have a 4.9 and above to participate in this swap. Any unexplained 1s will be banned. I have the right to ban you from a swap if I feel you do not meet the swap standards or will flake.

In this swap you will send your partner a surprise swap package FULL of kawaii items ranging up to $15. You can go over the top to receive that desired heart too ;)

Remember, this is international so take consideration into shipping costs when signing up.


  • plushes
  • sticker sheets
  • sticker flakes (minimum 10)
  • jewelery
  • memo pads
  • pencil cases
  • pens
  • blind boxes/collectables
  • journals
  • candy
  • letter sets (minimum 2 sheets, 1 envelope)
  • deco tape
  • cell phone charms

Important Note:
This is a SURPRISE swap so it is NOT profile based. This is entirely up to your partner so please do not rate them poorly if you receive something you do not like. Please do not sign up if you will be a poor sport if you receive a particular item you are not pleased with. This is supposed to be a fun surprise swap and I hope everyone will be fair in their judgment.

Does anyone know where to find Kawaii stuff other than the Sanrio store and the internet? I can't find much of it here in NH.

LilyLestrange 08/ 3/2010 #

@sunnylee7 I'm afraid the internet is the best place for it!

I absolutely love the adorable kawaii figures and finally got to order some kawaii goodies online from KitKnitty: http://kitknitty.ecrater.com/c/1063281/50-off-sale-discounted-as-marked. Like @weeatcrayons said, the site is having a big 50% off sale right now. I thought the prices were very reasonable, including the cost of shipping, and was very pleased with what I got.

Now can someone please tell me if there's some sort of trick to using the deco tape rolls without the tape twisting back on itself before you can place it on whatever? HELP! :)

I've got a bunch of goodies ready to send off now all I need is the addy! I'm so excited this is going to be a fun swap! Also, if you guys are looking for a store that sells Kawaii stuff in the U.S see if you have a Five Below near you they have some great stuff in there.. it's worth it to check it out...

thegreatdawn 08/ 4/2010 #

I'm very excited about this swap! Expecting a few supply parcels in the mail this week :D

Hey there, I haven't swapped in awhile and I was wondering for this swap, if "kawaii" meant only branded items. (ie. Hello Kitty, Rilakuma, etc) or just cute items even tho they aren't really branded. (ie. Pucho Candy, notebooks with kawaii animals) I'm really excited about this swap :)

holesinhistory 08/10/2010 #

@sunnylee7 If you have any asian grocery stores in your area, they tend to have a really good, if small selection of items. Also, the toy section of most places- Target, especially, have some items. Party City also has a few, quick, cheap grabbies. Also, if you have a decently sized comic book store you can sometimes find things there. Good luck :)

patumma 08/10/2010 #

is it all right to mix the characters or should the package be all one character? Thank you

thegreatdawn 08/11/2010 #

@patumma You can mix characters in this swap.

@Starberrie They need to be Kawaii branded items.

Starberrie 08/11/2010 #

So they MUST be branded..? I wanted to include some letter sets that look kawaii, but I don't believe they belong to a big brand /:

Please let me know what you think, @thegreatdawn Thanks :)

thegreatdawn 08/11/2010 #

Oh, those are just fine. Those are kawaii. I'm talking about real life animals that are cute but are clearly not japanese "kawaii".

Starberrie 08/12/2010 #

Ouu, okay then thanks a bunch :)

crowningmoment 08/14/2010 #

twinfreckles 08/14/2010 #

I have TONS of kawaii goodies! This sounds like so much fun!

patumma 08/14/2010 #

we are talking Japanese Kawaii here right? not disney or the like? Is that correct...i have too much disney! LOL

Chelle 08/14/2010 #

Umm.. Yea I was wondering the same thing. Is Disney considered "Kawaii" in this swap?

patumma 08/14/2010 #

I am very sorry but i prefer not to receive disney in a kawaii swap. Your swap your choice totally!!! I would just like to know so i know if i want to join or not. Thank you

thegreatdawn 08/14/2010 #

No disney in this swap!!

patumma 08/15/2010 #

thank you for the clarification thegreatdawn!

provadia 08/17/2010 #

If you can extend the deadline I can join in too. (I'm ordering my kawaii from janetstore and am not sure when it will get here. Don't wanna be late sending to my partner..)

thegreatdawn 08/18/2010 #

How long of an extension were you thinking @provadia

provadia 08/18/2010 #

Maybe Sept. 15? Or is that too long? I placed an order yesterday and it's 3-4 weeks shipping. If not, I can wait till the next one, it's no big:) Or you can do a private swap with me?

thegreatdawn 08/18/2010 #

I can do a private swap with you? I feel bad for the other swappers because I had this swap up for almost a month :( Message me and we can arrange a private swap for later in the month if you'd like :)

kpatricialee 08/21/2010 #

I hope you host a second one, because I def want to participate, but don't have the time now :)

QtPie 08/21/2010 #

I know this a surprise swap but I really want to join the thing is I have bad allergies and can not have plushes in my home. If that is a problem then please remove me from the swap.

LilyLestrange 08/22/2010 #

Is handmade allowed in this swap?

LilyLestrange 08/22/2010 #

Ok guys, I run my own business and I make kawaii items so if anyone has a problem with handmade kawaii items can they let me know asap? I'm sending my package tomorrow so need to know!! >.< (It's not all handmade btw, I'm sending other goodies too :) )

thegreatdawn 08/23/2010 #

Handmade is okay as long as it meets the requirements with everything listed above :)

twinfreckles 08/23/2010 #

Had so much fun putting this swap together! Hope my partner loves it!

LilyLestrange 08/25/2010 #

It meets requirements and my partner said it's cool too :) thanks for arranging another great swap, @thegreatdawn

thegreatdawn 08/25/2010 #
