We've Been Featured in the Holiday GOOP Guide!

When it comes to style, design and taste, we really can’t think of anyone more influential than Gwyneth Paltrow these days. She has become such an important trendsetter. So we were completely blown away when Gwyneth (yes, we’re on a first-name basis now!) invited us to become part of her 2016 Holiday GOOP Guide! This was totally amazing and unexpected, and we simply can’t get the idea of Gwyneth wearing one of our super-cute kigurumis out of our heads.

The first item that Gwyneth Paltrow selected for the “Under-18 Gift Guide” was our really cute Dinosaur Onesie for older kids. It’s a great mid-range gift. It’s a bit more expensive than the Assembli Unicorn Kit, but way more affordable than some of the other items for older kids – like the Fujimax Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera or the M3D Micro 3D Printer.

In some alternative gift universe, we could imagine kids all over the world dressing up in our dinosaur kigurumis during the holidays, assembling unicorns and then snapping photos of themselves with the Fujimax camera!

The thing we love most about the dinosaur onesie are all the cute little details, especially the dinosaur tail and the cute facial features. And it’s also super warm and super cozy. It’s warm enough that your teens could wear these dinosaur kigurumis at an outdoor spring concert or just hanging out on a weekday night.

The other item that Gwyneth Paltrow added to the GOOP “Under-18 Gift Guide” was our giraffe onesie. It has a 100% fleece lining, so it will keep your tiny little giraffe warm all day. Even though there’s a lot of detail on this onesie, it’s machine washable. This has to be a huge relief to giraffe moms everywhere – you can let your little giraffe out into the wild, and it doesn’t matter how big of a mess they make. You can just pop these kigus into the washer and they’ll come out even cozier and softer than before!

What’s really fun about these giraffe onesie (which GOOP picked out for the 5-to-9 age range) is that it’s a one-size-fits-all for kids. We know how fast kids outgrow their clothes, and so this giraffe onesie is meant to grow along with them!

Don’t forget, moms – we always want to see your adorable Instagram snaps of your kids rocking their kigus! We hear that giraffe and dinosaur birthday theme parties are going to be big in 2017, and we’d love to include a few Insta snaps of a giraffe or dino theme party!

Kigurumi.ca is the official Canadian distributor of authentic SAZAC kigurumi. SAZAC is Japan's number one kigurumi manufacturer, and the quality of SAZAC onesies is unmatched around the world. Unfortunately, this means that many other manufacturers will try (and fail!) to mimic SAZAC products. It doesn't take much to notice a major difference in quality between authentic kigurumi and imitators' attempts.

Fake. vs. Real: Stitch Kigurumi

For starters, imitation kigurumi are generally made of much thinner fabric--sometimes crushed velvet, which deteriorates much more quickly than fleece, cotton, and poly--and are poorly stitched together. Fakes tend to have wonky-looking faces: crossed eyes, asymmetrical features, and visible stitch defects. Colours won't be nearly as vivid, lining is often missing altogether, and features such as sleeves, tails, ears, wings, etc., will be overall much more floppy and downright sad-looking.
