    Cat Donuts Get Tropical For Summer Wonder Festival

    We don’t need to tell you about how much we love Donyatsu, Japan’s ridiculously awesome blend of cats and pastries. More recently, it’s been all kinds of animals and pastries! Okay, not all kinds, more like “several variations of cats and also a bear that vaguely looks like a cat as well.” BUT WHO CARES so cute. They tend to release special variations for Wonder Festival: the first time around it was a Vampire Donut Cat, and this past winter it was Armored Donut Cat.

    This time, Donyatu’s hitting the beach in a set of 3 minifigure straps! First up on Donyatsu himself in a cool blue colorway with an awesome cloud print. Then we’ve got Ronya with pink Hawaiian flowers and final Kumacaron with tropical orange spots. How cute are they?! There are only 300 sets and they retail for ¥1,500. Not bad, if you can actually make it to the event…

    Cat Donuts Now Come In Snack Sizes

    So by this point I assume everyone knows about the wonder that is Cat Donuts. Recently he’s gotten a few friends and a whole lot more merchandise, including some prize figures! It seems like there’s no end in sight, and the newest addition to the lineup is a set of trading figures. That’s right, bite sized Cat Donut & Friends!

    This set features Donyatsu, Kumacaron and Ronya in 3 colorways each, giving us a total of 9 figures. They’ll retail for ¥600 a pop, but you can get a case of 9. Their release date is currently set for June which seems a little early but who cares! It’s Cat Donut!

    Fill Up On Donyatsu With Kumacaron, Ronya & More!


    When we first saw the amazing Donut Cat, I was sure we would only be getting those initial figures: I mean it’s so weird! And believe it or not the manga is 10 times weirder than anything you could imagine. But the world of Donyatsu has proven to be insanely popular, and now there are tons more characters! We’re finally getting some figures of Kumacaron, who we saw at WonFest, along with Ronya and Baumcougar who already have some juicy prize figures.

    These are all the smaller strap sizes, so they retail for only ¥600 each! We have Kumacaron in Mint, Lavender and Rose, Ronya in Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla and finally a sole Baumcougar. I do love them, but where’s Bagel? Maybe one day… and let’s just hope the plush pops up soon as well!

    Fill Up With Even More Donut Cats & Friends

    At Wonder Festival, we saw a few new additions to the Donyatsu line, now with cream roll cats and the amazing Kumacaron. We didn’t know how these would be released, and oddly enough it seems like some of the smaller ones will be prize figures! There are 3 in this set: Donyatsu, the cream roll, and a roll sans-cream.

    The set of all 3 is available on Big In Japan with an August release date, but you can also get Donyatsu all on his own if you just want a quick snack. Me? I’m going to pig out on kitty vinyl!

    Winter Wonder Festival 2013: Donut Cats

    I bet you didn’t know how much we freaking love Donut Cats, because we really don’t talk about them at all on the site. We do know that Algernon Project had an exclusive Donyatsu at Wonder Festival, but they also had some new cuties at the event! A LOT of new cuties.

    There’s tons of new minis, and not just Cat Donuts–all kinds of assorted feline pastries like cream rolls. But still no Bagel?! There’s no justice for that mutant kitty. But is that a donut… bear I espy?!?!?
