If you’re not sure whether you should dropship kigurumi, take a look at these results of our product research.

Do you remember our recent article about the best products for drop shipping?

Today, we will talk about an item that matches most of the criteria we’ve described, and suits almost every drop shipper.

The topic of the day is kigurumi – a really curious type of clothing that is used by children and adults, cosplayers and snowboarders, home lovers and party animals alike!

This is why it’s a good idea to dropship kigurumi

  • Home wear is highly demanded

We made a research with the help of Google Trends, and you can see the change of demand for home wear on the screenshot below:

It’s obvious that the demand is high and stable, but let’s keep investigating and check another query:

Looks promising, right?

And here is the graph for a more narrow and specific ‘kigurumi’ query:

In other words, this type of clothing has a great potential that should definitely be explored.

  • It’s not always possible to buy kigurumi offline

As we have mentioned before, rarity is one of the most important features of a perfect drop shipping product. If a customer can just walk to a nearby store and buy an identical item on the spot, selling the same stuff online makes no sense – the wait for the delivery will not be worth it.

From this point of view, kigurumi are perfect. Have you ever seen them in any of your local stores?

  • They are super cute

Your main goal is to generate impulse purchases. The items you offer should be too awesome to resist! There’s no doubt that kigurumi totally meet this requirement.

If you enhance the emotional effect with the help of some additional motivation drivers, for example, Countdown Timer or Recent Sales pop-up, the result will be even better: you can expect a larger amount and volume of impulse purchases.

  • Sizing problems are unlikely

Many people are afraid to dropship clothes (and even more people don’t even want to buy clothes online) because of various sizing issues. It is especially true for tight-fitting clothes, but with kigurumi, this is not a problem at all.

This type of clothes is supposed to be oversized, so even if it doesn’t totally match your buyer’s actual size, it will still fit. The client will look great anyway, and everyone will be happy and satisfied with the purchase! This way, if you’re selling kigurimi, you don’t have to worry about the possible returns and refunds.

  • Everyone wears kigurumi

Kigurumi suits every gender and age: men and women, girls and boys, kids and teenagers choose this type of clothes as a home wear or party outfits.

It means that your target audience is basically unlimited: nearly everyone can potentially buy these items from you, so wonderful business opportunities open up.

  • There are numerous reasons to buy kigurumi

As we already mentioned, kigurumi are multifunctional. Plus, they are unisex, and they are suitable for any age.

It makes them a winning gift: if you motivate your store visitors correctly, they will buy these products not only for their own personal use, but also for their dearest and nearest. If your clients get satisfied with their first orders, repeat purchases are quite likely!

  • It’s easy to target an appropriate audience

Reaching a suitable target audience on Facebook can sometimes be tricky.

But if you’re selling kigurumi, you can target thousands of people with all sorts of interests: Internet users who like anime, watch TV series, play videogames or adore animals can all be interested in your offers. You can build a large audience and enjoy the constant flow of customers.

All in all, kigurumi seem to be a great choice for dropshippers. Let’s use this methodology and check the AliExpress offers!

Thank you

You take somewhat related searches in trends and that is how you decided that this is a great product? The Kigurumi query itself shows a deep dive, and that is probably because everybody has already seen it and the hype is gone.

I really don’t think that this is the way you research your products, but that is just me, thanks for the read anyway

The only problem with these suggestions is that too many people copy them …

Paul February 9, 2018 23:07:54

I agree, this is been and gone….

How do I add this item to my store

Olga,

Very interesting post about Kigurumi.

Do you have a store that I could have a look at?

It is fine that you talk about this but I am looking for something realistic.

Thanks.

Jimmy.
