If you are into cushions then this last prize will be suitable for you! Or if the board has great prizes left and tickets within your buyout range, then you can buyout to obtain this as well! The star toast cushion with Kirby on the set is a vintage Kirby Cushion design, huggable and good for display, so no complains! You can look for a 7- buyout or 13- with at least one top prizes!

The only downfall on this Kuji is that it lacks of big prizes for a 70 tickets set, but the small prizes are good enough for you not to feel bad playing this Kuji! You have plush charms, figure charms, a line up of plates and bowls and nice towels, and if lucky, you get a big plush, toaster or figure stationery holder, there’s really nothing bad to it!

Odds

Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!

Chance to get a top prize (A to C): 5 / 70 = 7.14%, below average 😦

Recommendation

5 tickets for a chance at a top prize, or get some amazing collectibles!

Collectibles? : The stationery holder is definitely good to keep! The plush charm and plush if you have been collecting Kirby’s Plush! The mugs, plates and bowl looks great to keep especially the ones with Kirby and Waddle Dee’s face! Lastly, the 4 figure charms are great to keep too!
