Greetings!

Man, hard to believe that it’s Cuddly Octopus’ 3rd birthday this month. That’s like what? 40 years old in octopus years? As with each of our anniversary updates, we’re kind of amazed and humbled to see what you guys have helped our tiny little circle to become. So first things first, we want to truly thank each and every single one of you for your support of Cuddly Octopus over these past one two three years! We hope to continue forward for many anniversaries to come!

As a celebration for these past three years, this month only, we’ll be running a special promo where all dakimakura and tapestry designs of our two lovely mascots, Syrene & Kisero, will be on sale for 50% off their usual price. Just use promo code “Syrene Birthday Party Time” at checkout to get your cuddly octopi and doggirls! (Coupon is only valid once per customer, can only be used to discount 2 items, and limited to the first at least 30 customers.)

We have lots of stuff still in the pipeline for you guys in the coming months, not all of it we can discuss quite yet (some of it’s pretty cool!). And as always, a boatload of new cover designs for you each month. Please keep your eye out for our monthly updates in the coming months. Make sure to not miss any of them, who knows what kind of cuddly companions are in store for you!

With all that out of the way, with our April 2019 update, we are adding the following 16 dakimakura designs to the store:

Welcome to the March 2019 Cuddly Octopus update! We’ve got a few things to share with you this month, so let’s dive into it!

First, we’ve partnered with Japanese-language learning gurus from kawaiiNihongo to sell a cover of their two mascots. If you’re interested in learning Japanese, these guys have a fun iOS and Android app to help you do so. Feel free to check them out and give them some love for supporting us!

Second, we’re adding a few Monjashop covers to our catalog this month due to popular demand for them. This isn’t the first time we’ve partnered with Monjashop to handle perpetual releases for some of their older designs and it certainly won’t be the last. Check out over here to see all of Monjashop’s designs we stock!

Finally, we’re back and expanding into a new product category with our collaboration with Merryweather. This month, we are launching a trial offering an IE & Chrome-chan poster exclusively on our store (only available to NA and EU customers). Merryweather has been asking for this stuff for several months now, and we’re interesting in seeing how the community reacts to expanding into posters. There’ll be more on our collaboration with Merryweather in the future!

That takes care of most of the special announcements we have. Without further adieu, let’s get into our cover releases

Disclaimer: The lines and octopodes on the sample images are a watermark and won’t be on the printed cover.

You can also view all of the designs from our store in this Imgur album. And, of course, you can purchase all of our designs from our storefront!

The premium P80 2-Way Silkette versions of most covers will be available on Sakura-Palace.

Happy Holidays, everyone, and welcome to the Cuddly Octopus December 2018 update! ‘Tis the season of giving and our gift to you is a generous helping of new and cuddly companions for you to spend your winter season with and even a festive tapestry to adorn your walls. Perhaps now is the time to pick up your loved ones a silky smooth friend, so they, too, can enjoy the warmth of a dakimakura beneath the bedsheets.

Welcome to our September 2018 update! Last month you may have noticed we had a surprise addition to our shop. We want to formally announce over here now that we’ve partnered up with Merryweather Comics as their official merchandising distributor, helping them sell their latest product—a Nyarla dakimakura cover! If you haven’t seen their web comic series around, you should definitely go check them out! Expect more products coming in the future from our collaboration with Merryweather.

In slightly less awesome news, orders from the July order period are experiencing a bit of a delay. It seems our factory is working through a bit of a backlog, but July orders should be printed now and are undergoing our QC stage. We expect that they should ship soon, within about a week or so.

Onto the fun stuff!

This month, we will be adding the following 7 designs to the store!

Welcome to our July 2018 update!

First off, we want to appologize for our downtime last month. We had some server issues that managed to take our website down for a couple of days. We’ve taken steps to make sure that any possible downtimes will be minimized in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience our downtime may have caused!

Other than server woes, administratively we don’t have anything to announce this month. Instead, let’s get right into the fun stuff! This month, we will be adding the following 13 designs to the store, along with one new tapestry.
