review ♡ dreamy arpakasso from rosy’s garden
Hello my fluffy dumplings! How are you all today? I know you all love my reviews (hopefully) so here’s another one for you~ The item that I am going to be reviewing is my Pink Dreamy Arpakasso Plushie from Rosy’s Garden I’ve had a lot of questions about it in the last week so hopefully this review will answer most of them!
Series: DreamyColour: PinkSize: 50cm
NOTE: This item was paid for with my own money and was not sponsored! I am not affiliated with the store. All opinions are always 100% honest regardless!
If you’re not yet familar with Arpakassos (also known as Alpacassos), they are these absolutely adorable alpaca plushies that are made by a company called Amuse that is based in Japan! They come in a lot of different sizes and designs and all of them are super cute
The store that I bought this from is called Rosy’s Garden and they’re very well known for selling authenic Arpakasso plushes, which is why I went with them! They have both an eBay and a Storenvy but I purchased from the Storenvy. They sell plushes of other characters too but of course, their speciality is Arpakassos. Anyway, I chose them because they have a really good reputation and they had the best prices for bigger plushes.
I’ve been wanting an Arpakasso for quite a long time now but I finally caved and bought one after I saw Rosy’s Garden had a sale on some of their big plushies. I ended up choosing the Pink 50cm Dreamy series Arpakasso~ I placed my order on the 2nd of March, and it was shipped the next day on the 3rd! It was delivered on the 10th of March but seriously like 15 minutes after I had left for school, so I ended up collecting it on the 11th.
It came in a box like this. At first I was freaking out while walking home with it because I was thinking, “Can a 50cm Arpakasso really fit inside this tiny box???”
Here’s everything that was in the box;; the Arpakasso was inside the pink + blue bag (obviously)
I wasn’t really expecting it, but they included some small free gifts! It’s a bunny clip, bow hair tie and a face cloth with a bear and alpaca on it.
The main attraction! My mouth seriously dropped when I took this out of the bag
/note that some of the following pictures were taken on different days so the colouring isn’t 100% accurate, the photo above is probably the most accurate in terms of colours//
She’s so beautiful, right? She is really is quite big too! I knew that I was buying a 50cm plush of course, but I didn’t expect her to be this big for some reason.
The tags, so you know that it’s authentic! They are attached through the label so they won’t make holes in the plushie.
The main feature of the Dreamy series Arpakassos is that they have this pretty ribbon, which is attached with a pearl/jewel necklace. Luckily, it’s firmly attached and impossible to untie the ribbon!
Since the Dreamy series Arpakassos aren’t available in blue, I thought that this pink one would be the next best thing since it has a blue ribbon
Details of the face~ Everything is done quite nicely, the eyelashes and mouth are all embroidered.
The ears on this one are quite small, especially compared to the yellow version which has massive ears
here’s an alpaca butt! ♡
She has a bit of a hard time staying upright on my bed, but it’s probably because my mattress is really soft;;
Look how adorable she is! I need a name for her too~ My friend keeps calling her 粉粉 (like pink-pink or maybe noodle-noodle LOL you decide) but I dun like it;; HELP ME PICK A NAME
Item: / 10
Ah, I really don’t have anything but love for this plush! All the details were done nicely and the fur is super soft too. And the big blue ribbon is a nice touch too. Originally, the design of the Dreamy series wasn’t really my favourite but now I’ve grown to like it quite a lot. And of course, it’s 50cm which means that it’s huge and fluffy. Everything is just perfect! So cute all around~
Shipping & Handling: / 10
My order was shipped out the next day after ordering, which is really fast. Plus, it only took about 7 days to arrive from Hong Kong which is pretty quick too. I think the packaing of it in the box was nice, so it kept I paid $13 for the shipping, which I thought at first was a bit expensive but once I saw how big the box was I thought that the price was pretty reasonable.
Customer Service: / 10
I didn’t have an enquiries so I never contacted them about anything, but they were very quick to notify me of shipment! I also appreciate the small gifts that were included in the package.
Value/Price: / 10
The Arpakasso itself was $35 and the shipping was $13, for a total of $48. This plush was actually on sale when I bought it too, so it was about $15 less than the usual price. While I still can’t be dropping that much money on plushies all the time, I think the price is pretty reasonable since it was a big plush!
Overall: / 10
Ah, I don’t think it’s possible to give this anything less than a perfect rating. I absolutely love the plushie itself and everything about it, and the customer service at Rosy’s was really lovely too! It was shipped in a box to keep it all nice and secure and they even threw in some small gifts! Honestly, there wasn’t a single negative about my experience so I am going to give Rosy’s Garden an A+++,
Thank you for reading everything, I hope you enjoyed it
Please look out for my upcoming reviews on Sheinside, Sandysshop and Sweetbox! Have a nice, fluffy day my lovely buns ♡
