While surfing online, I stumbled upon these adorable looking mobile phone pouches from Poire (pronounced p-wah-r – its French for pear) and I absolutely fell in love with them for cute factor. They hang onto the inside of your bag from the handle and make it easy for you to access your mobile phone.
From what I see, its suitable mostly for tote bags without zips only because any other bag with a zip just wouldn’t cut it since it hangs from the handle. The plump little shape is modelled after a pear (hence its name) and it comes in lots of adorable designs.
Poire is carried by Superplanning, the same company that does the Rootote. There are a couple of designs but these 2 caught my eye the most – the first for bling factor (Yen 1260) and the second (Yen 1050) for the makeup maven in us all 🙂
Based on the pictures, it looks to fit most smaller phones only or flip top phones which are popular in Japan. I guess that rules out users of Nokia N Series and E Series of which I hope soon to be family 🙂 Don’t you agree they look adorable?
Aside: I survived preparing a slap up dinner for 8! We had roast chicken (I found turkey way too expensive) and the works even down to Christmas plum pudding. Slaved away the whole day yesterday but it was worth it! 😀

Oh my! These are cute!
Hey I remember this! I bought a couple when I was in Japan; one for mum, and one for me. It turned out to be useless for me, because my phone was far too big and the grip wasn’t good.
But I have to say, these sure are cute nevertheless 😛
Super cute!!!! if i hang it on my bag though, within split seconds, my phone’s bye bye forever! lol but this is super cute!!!! Love love love it!
very cute. too cute for me. LOL. you never sieze to amaze me!
Oh so kawaii! But not very practical for me since I’m an N-series user. Heh.
p.s. You decided on which Nokia model you’re eyeing yet? 🙂
but with the bag organizer, this is optional now 😛
@sesame : Aren’t they? Bit impractical for me, but cute nonetheless
@Tine: LOL yeah I don’t think I”d get much use out of them though I could use it to store keys or pens or something.
@Nikki: Perils of pickpockets huh? Yeah, thats my fear too. Guess its safer in Japan.
@jojoba : Its too sweet no?
@rinnah: Yeah doesn’t look to fit anything bigger than a Japanese flip top phone. Haven’t thought too hard about it but looking at the N95.
@prettybeautiful: LOL… too true! Though its probably good for the days when people don’t carry their bag organizer around e.g. smaller bags 🙂
I have a couple of this pouch, and they are really cute, so they only fit small phone, and I have to warn that if you are not careful enough, some one may snatch of your phone. I have a pink one just like the one you shown above, with rabbit on it. 🙂
