Let's talk about kawaii! It means "cute" in Japanese, and it's used to describe some of the awesome products that come out of Japan, China, and other parts of Asia. Some of the brands and characters that I have seen described as kawaii are Hello Kitty, Doraemon, San-X, Kogepan, Nyan Nyan Nyanko, Rilakkuma, Tissue-san, MashiMaro, Tare Panda, and mannnnyyyyyy more.
When someone says "Kawaii Goods" usually the first things I think about are stationery letter sets, cute erasers, and stickers, but there are a lot of other products that might be called kawaii, like plush toys, useful things like tissue box holders that have a character on them, and lots of other things. Things don't have to be a cartoon to be considered kawaii, though! I have also heard kawaii used to describe animals and babies!
