After reading the other customer reviews, I almost didn't purchase these slippers because I assumed they wouldn't fit...and uhhh well.. all I have to say is I live in America and these are a standard size medium slipper, the size medium that any other store around here sells. Please don't buy into the 'they don't fit' sobs, like they're some bizarre miniature Asian creation or something only a child can wear. These are adorable, high quality slippers, that any Totoro fan will flip their lid over. Trust me.
I purchased my pair from the seller T&G Mall. The item came from China. It was packaged in a plastic bag, and came via USPS earlier than Amazon estimates.
Please find the photos I uploaded.
When I was getting ready to order this item, I thought something was odd. The off-angle photo on the Amazon page shows the embroidery on the heel area with the dark brown letters, and they appeared skewed or tilted. It should read "となりのトトロ," but instead, the characters are mirrored left to right.
The tag is mostly written in Chinese with some Japanese on the bottom one third of it. I cannot read Chinese, but the Japanese has a few typos.
After the fact, I Googled for Totoro slippers in Japanese websites and did not find any of this style.
Considering all of the above, I think these are knock-offs. I am not particularly interested in going through the hassle of shipping this back to China, but I am definitely disappointed I did not do my research before I purchased it. If I had known that this was not an authentic Studio Ghibli product, I would not have bought it.
My husband got these for me as a surprise, the minute I saw these I LOVED them! They were so adorable. I tried them on and they were not only comfortable but they keep my feet so warm. The only problem is that they are a bit slippery but not much. If you are a totoro fan these are a must have!
These are cheaply made (you pay for what you get). In person, they don't even really look like Totoro. The pair that I got, the pattern stitched on the white stomach are not angled correctly like the picture, so it looks weird. The sizing fits my feet (USA Womens 8.5) near perfectly, however, I bought these with the intention of giving them to my son who wears a boys size 2.5 shoe. I would not recommend these.
I fell in love with totoro slippers. I bought this for my 4 year old daughter and she loves it!! not really for outside use.. i dont let my daughter run with this coz she has the tendency to slip with the bottom part material.. but overall, she loves it!!
