Tsum Tsums are indisputably the epitome of cuteness when it comes to characters.
But they are also unequivocally expensive — whether we are buying the plush toys, keychains or figurines.
Thankfully, for broke people like me, 7-Eleven has the perfect solution for us to get a hold of the unbelievably adorable characters without spending a bomb.
What’s even better is its practicality.
What exactly does 7-Eleven have in store for us?
It is none other than the very thing that took Hong Kong by storm — Tsum Tsum drawers.
Don’t belittle these miniature characters and drawers — its charm is in its size.
Small or big, we certainly will never be out of drawers to use — especially the ones that take up the least space in our cramped apartments.
Off the top of my head, I’d probably hide my sweets from my siblings in them, or use them to store my jewellery. Alternatively, we can always store trinkets that embody our memories in these cute boxes.
Okay, some of us may start questioning why stacked drawers are sold instead of merely a single large drawer. The secret is in the name — tsumu actually means ‘to stack’ in Japanese. That’s why the characters are so small, and why the drawers take after them.
Tell me your heart did not just melt.
If you are unsatisfied with just a drawer, don’t worry; 7-Eleven has got you covered. The knobs have a special kind of magic — you can actually twist them out from the drawers to form a legit Tsum Tsum.
That essentially means that you get both a drawer and a collectible toy to display.
With this, your parents can no longer chastise you for buying unnecessary things. Furthermore, it’s a pretty solid and convincing argument with yourself that you actually didn’t waste your money.
If you’re not already thinking of buying it, do it for the sake of that friend who is in love with Tsum Tsums.
How do you get your hands on this? Simple — get six stamps and spend $5.90 to purchase one of the drawers.
Spoiler alert: you can’t choose your drawers!
Not that it matters; Tsum Tsums are all cute, after all.
To redeem each stamp, you would have to spend $4 at 7-Eleven.
If you think that’s hard, it’s actually not. Let me break it down for you — for a convenience store lunch that we all love to see in Korean dramas, grab an onigiri or cup noodles and simply choose your favourite drink.
It’s even easier to hit the $4 every day if you can’t cook to save your life.
Alternatively, you can always collect 20 stamps and choose a drawer for free.
If you hit rock bottom in the level of ‘broke’, there’s still a chance for you. Twice a month, 7-Eleven will pick five winners to receive a pack of drawers. Ten winners a month; now that’s a steal.
These characters will surely make anybody fall in love — so buy them the first chance that you get, before it disappears!
For the kiasu ones, 7-Eleven starts selling them today (17 April 2019). As for those who can never find the time, the Tsum Tsums will officially disappear on 25 June, so look out!
Or follow us on Instagram. We don’t promise a giveaway of this but we promise images of cats and dogs, and sometimes BuffLord95.
