Kirby Sweet Moment

Kirby is back again with a new Kuji set! Unlike the tv series the Kuji for Kirby is more relax and fun, so let’s see what they have in store for us this time!

Retail Price: SGD12

Total Tickets: 70

Released Date: April 2021

The retail price is slightly cheaper as this is the cheaper Kuji, but the total ticket is lesser too so should give you a higher chance of pulling a top prize!

Prize A (2 pieces)

How adorable is Kirby! I mean can you not like this plush! Kirby again kicks off with his plush toy, each of his plush is cute and this is no different. Nothing bad about a plush, be it you like it or not, getting this definitely makes you feel like a winner!

Prize B (2 pieces)

This is probably what most of you are looking for in the set! The clock is not only usable but super attractive. It has both Kirby and Waddle Dee’s figurine in it! It is also seated above a mini drawer for you to store all your stationaries! This is a very good display set and also storage! It’s also the first time such a prize comes out in the Ichiban Kuji set! Multiple usage and definitely trying to pull it!

Prize C (2 pieces)

Well what makes this a top prize is the fact that it’s made of glass and it’s a classy tea cup. One prize has 2, but not the best top prize there is out there, so if you pull it, then good for you but I don’t think you are missing out anything superb if you don’t get it. Good design though.

Prize D (12 pieces)

I would want to consider this as one of the top prizes if it’s not that common, but wow, this looks amazing! The cutlery has great design, not only for the Kirby characters on it but the design of the prize itself! Both fork and spoon look very unique and will be valuable to your collection or even your cutlery set! This makes a fantastic consolation prize!

There are 4 designs, 2 spoons and 2 forks, and 3 pieces in a set for each design. These are not blinded so go ahead and pick your favorite!

Prize E (12 pieces)

The previous set we get legit figurine charms and in this set we have more figurine charms that looks damn legit! They look like plush but are actually figurine material which makes the overall design so good. This also makes a very good consolation prize, actually I believe people would want to get this more.

There are 4 designs, each with 3 pieces in a set. They are again not blinded so easy to collect all 4.

Prize F (16 pieces)

Let the awesome small prizes keep coming in because this is such a good prize. It’s not common that we get containers but having such a cute design on them makes them even better. I don’t think you would feel too bad if you get a container for $12 that has Kirby on it. These may not be as good of a consolation prize as the other 2 above but at least you won’t feel too bad getting them. They come in handy as well.

There are 4 designs, 4 pieces each in a set. I don’t think Kirby Kuji has even did blind boxes before, so hope it stays that way, this is is not blinded too.

Prize G (24 pieces)

Okay just when I was complimenting on this set, the towels came right after. Nothing bad about the design but why out of everything a towel. Also there is only 1 long towel in the set which I believe will be the most wanted piece. Well we can’t have everything good in a set can we? You will have a higher chance of getting these so if you want to buy more do note that you might get tons of these.

There are 5 designs, 1 long and 4 short, there are 4 long towels in a set and 5 of each short towels. They are obviously not blinded so if you play early you can pick the long towel to make yourself feel better.

Last Prize

I was going to assume that the last prize would be Waddle Dee in the lying position since we have Kirby for the A prize but nope, we have an amazing plush container instead! This is an amazing last prize, not only is the design good, but the fact that you have 2 mini plush on top of it just make it more attractive! Then you have the container feature which makes this a very unique prize and you will want to buyout to get your hands on it!

Conclusion

Kirby has never fail to amaze me with every new released! This set looks very promising and features tons of great prizes and if you are a Kirby fan, you have to buy at least 5 tickets to try your luck to obtain these amazing prizes! The only drawback is the towels, so you are highly likely to pull them, but the other prizes kind of compensates the towels so all is well.

That being said, don’t go aggressive since the prizes can get repetitive after a while, so if after maybe 10 tries you still cannot pull a top prize, just buy it off from someone.

Grading

CriteriaScore (Upon 10)
Design9: Very appealing overall, give you a very good impression of the Kuji just by glancing through the prizes!
Top Prizes8: The plush and the clock looks amazing, the tea cup is not bad but if it was market better (perhaps add in the tea pot) then this would receive full marks.
Small Prizes8: Everything except the towels looks amazing and they are quite easily pulled too! The fact that they are giving you so many great prizes instead of more towels, visual art, folders or acrylic/rubber charms shows the effort they put into this Kuji!
Last Prize9: Not to oversell it, but wow, how can you not want to get your hands on this! Usable, adorable and valuable!
Monetary Value8: Very worth, buy more to avoid getting a towel with only 1 ticket, your chances of other prizes are 2 times higher so 3 tickets you should see yourself getting at least 2 prizes and also it’s only $12 and most prizes itself are worth that value!
Collection Value9: It’s not hard to collect everything from this set given that nothing is blinded! Then there are also 2 of each top prizes so even if you don’t pull them you can just buy them directly. The value for having everything in the set is there and will make you feel complete, and also not much to get, there are a total of 3 top, 17 small and 1 last prize to collect, which is really very little.
Overall85% A. From the awesome top prizes to the amazing small prizes (towels are really meh but at least they include 1 long towel) and they ability to choose your small prizes and also the attractiveness of each non-towel prizes makes this one of the better Kuji set out there! For only $12 you will get something legit (towels are not the worst small prize, they could have given you something less valuable) so I do appreciate the set and also the effort placed into it.
