Been on holiday recently?  Then you have probably bought something like this and have already thrown it in the bin.  Not me though.  Even though I was going to after regretting the purchase I thought I may as well try the slippers on and the rest - as they say - is history.

That life-changing day happened five months ago and not a day as gone by without me slipping into Osaka at least twice a day - she's just so warm and when there are two of her who can blame me?  Ok, now I've gotten the bad jokes out of the way I'll tell you exactly why these are so great.

Even though the slippers where won out of an arcade grabbing machine don't think that they are cheap, they are surprisingly well made and incredibly snug on your feet.  They have been a blessing during the cold English winter, even though the slippers only just fit me as they only come in one size (roughly size 9).  There have been no wear problems yet, the character detail is fine and the hair is ok even though it is only stuck down with glue!

I never wore slippers before picking these up but now I'm a convert and I always put them on when I get up in the morning!  Now I just need some Azumanga Daioh pyjamas and my life will be complete!
