Kigurumi Earth Day

Did you know that Kigurumi is obsessed with animals? It's true! There isn't a day that goes by that we aren't cozied up at the office in our animal onesies. Between purple unicorns and red octopi, we love dressing up when we're hard at work.

This love comes just in time for one of our favourite days – Earth Day! This weekend, we're not only going to be prancing and dancing around in our favourite animal onesies, but we'll be donating $5 of from every Kigurumi sale to the World Wildlife Fund (between April 22 & April 23). Not only are we passionate about animals and nature, but we actively support conservation and sustainability.

Join us in protecting the world's most precious species by adopting one of our animal onesies below!

Narwhals

This precious animal is not only considered the unicorn of the sea, but their role in the overall health of marine environment is crucial. Unfortunately their sustainability and growth has been largely affected by climate change. 

Let's save this magical creature! Check out our Narwhal Kigurumi Onesie complete with an adorable mystical horn.

Tigers

A yes – the ferocious tiger! These furry creatures are also in danger and need our help! Aside from poaching and illegal trade, tigers have lost a total of 93% of their historic range according to WWF.

Bring back the tiger love with our White Tiger Kigurumi Onesie complete with an adorable tail and black strip details!

Pandas

Panda, Panda, Panda! We have to admit, sometimes we too like to dress in our Panda Kigurumi Onesie and listen Desiigner on repeat.

Despite conservation efforts, pandas still face habitat loss and fragmentation. Help us in supporting these furry, symbolic creatures! 

Sharks

Did you know that there are over 400 shark species? Sharks play a huge role in our oceans health. Unintentional capture of sharks, as well as shark finning and changes in marine environment are threatening this beautiful creature daily.

Save them by adopting our real cute Shark Kigurumi Onesie complete with a hood and flip-open fin mitts! Did we mention it has teeth too?

Elephants

Both African and Asian elephants are still considered endangered species because of ivory poaching and habitat issues. According to WWF, the African elephant habitat has decreased by over 50% since 1979. 

Help support these giant gorgeous creatures with our Elephant Kigurumi Onesie complete with a cute trunk and tail!

Check out our other Animal Onesies to support conservation and sustainability this month!

Thank you for supporting WWF and Earth Day. If you'd like to learn more about the fund or donate, make sure to visit their site.

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.
