All New April Loungefly Arrivals!

All New April Loungefly Arrivals!

It’s no joke– brand new Loungefly has arrived at Kawaii Gifts! These bags and accessories are live in our Shadyside shop, online at and in the Kawaii Gifts app as of April 1! The latest releases include a totally new series to add to our Loungefly collection, along with new Nickelodeon and Star Wars additions. 

Now for the biggest news of the new arrivals—Strawberry Shortcake has bloomed into our shop! If you’re a fan of the adorable and timeless Strawberry Shortcake, then you’re in luck! We’ve added the Strawberry Shortcake Strawberry House mini backpack, figural crossbody bag and Strawberry House wallet in her classic 1980’s style!

The sweetest arrivals, these bags are covered in adorable pink polka dots and feature plenty of strawberries and blooming flowers! The mini backpack includes Strawberry Shortcake’s strawberry house on the classic Loungefly front pocket, complete with a window that opens on the front door, revealing a welcoming Strawberry Shortcake! As an extra sweet touch, this front pocket features a rubber strawberry zipper pull. Strawberry Shortcake is joined by her two friends, Lemon Meringue on the left and Orange Blossom on the right.


My personal favorite of this series, the figural crossbody bag is a fragrant new arrival complete with a pleasant strawberry scent! The entire bag is Strawberry Shortcake’s house, and again has an opening window in the front door where Strawberry Shortcake is ready to greet you. The bright green leaves of the strawberry are covered with embroidered blooms, and are the flap that opens and closes with a snap button. Under the flap is a zipper to secure your bag contents. The bag comes with an adjustable strap to wear the adorable purse how you like!

Finally, the wallet rounds out the deliciously adorable trio with another design centered on her strawberry house. There is an embroidered white picket fence as a lovely border across the bottom, with Strawberry Shortcake waiting at the threshold. Inside, the wallet features several pockets for cards, cash, and a zipper pocket for loose change. The interior pattern for all of these bags can be seen in the wallet as well, and is an all over design on a pink background of Strawberry Shortcake and her pink cat, Custard. For a few more touches of sweetness, the ID holder features a cutout in the shape of a strawberry, and the back of the wallet shows Custard with a heart-shaped nose and a perfectly ripe strawberry.

Our newest Nickelodeon arrival splashing into our store is a fun and funky Spongebob Squarepants accordion wallet. This cute little wallet features Spongebob’s pineapple house on the front, complete with the leaves and chimney details. The back of the wallet includes Spongebob and Patrick riding jellyfish over their neighborhood. The interior expands to reveal a cluster of pockets for money, cards and change all covered in a multicolored design featuring Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward and even Gary!


Rounding out the new arrivals— more Star Wars to add to our collection. In addition to the new Jabba’s Palace backpack and wallet, we’ve also received a collector’s pin of Han frozen in carbonite and a keychain celebrating the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi’s world premiere!

The new backpack and wallet let Jabba the Hutt bask in all his glory, surrounded by his cronies in his palace. The front pocket features Luke Skywalker fighting the monstrous Rancor underneath the palace of the galactic crimelord. The zipper pull for this pocket stars Han frozen in carbonite. The wallet features the same image of Jabba and his goons. To top it all off, the interior designs for the backpack and zipper wallet feature a special pattern for the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi!

The Star Wars accessories are especially exciting! The Han in Carbonite pin is the newest addition to the Loungefly collector’s pins we carry. Only 1000 of the enamel pins were printed, and the magic touch on this accessory is the slider, releasing Han from the carbonite!


No need to get in line for this ticket! The newest keychain from Loungefly features a lenticular design showing a gold movie ticket for the world premiere of Return of the Jedi. Shift the keychain to reveal a special 1983 movie poster in the “Nova” or “Starfall” style for the movie’s release. This design inspires the interior pattern for the backpack and wallet, and features everyone’s favorite droids, C-3PO and R2-D2, under a glowing red sky framed by red and green lightsabers. According to, this Japanese poster by Noriyoshi Ohrai was only offered to the public at the first theatrical release and potentially as a trading card giveaway. You can have this collectible by your side as a convenient keychain wherever you travel the galaxy!
