Non-Amuse Vs. Amuse Brand Arpakasso
I compiled pictures of common knockoff alpacas compared to the Amuse brand version they were copying/the resemblance I see XD I hope this helps people out!
The left picture is the non-amuse brand knockoff. The right is the Amuse brand.
The Amuse brand Arpakasso has a green/mint colored one. The actual yellow one has longer ears than the rest of them because it is a llama. The ribbon on the purple one must be light purple, not orange.
The Amuse brand has a brown llama, which has longer ears. It also has a checkered scarf has white poof balls on the ends. The white boy has a striped scarf. The pink is supposed to have eyelashes and a cape!
Lovely Berry Series
I don’t think I need to explain this one in much detail but the actual berry series has a white boy, purple boy, light pink girl with a light pink bow, a pink girl with a red bow, and a hot pink girl with a flower.
The actual Amuse brand has the flags of countries on their scarves. I believe these knockoffs were intended to resemble the Japan Amuse-brand one because it has a red heart instead of the typical red circle for the flag of Japan XD
The actual Amuse backpacks have either a star or heart shaped clip on top if they are smaller. The bigger backpacks have a star shaped zipper pull. They also come in many more color choices.
The actual Macaron series’ come in many colors. There are no bows on the heads. The stitching of the mouth does not take up most of the facial region. There are 3 Macaron series to my knowledge. They vary slightly in color, fur texture, and facial features. I’ll be doing my own post on this in the future!
Sailor and Vacation Series
I actually think the KHTOY version is kinda cute. It kind of combines the marine baby alpacasso and the vacation arpakasso together. However! The ones on the right are authentic Amuse brand. The ones on the left are not!
The actual series has no purple or orange version. Their necks are not as long as those on the left. Also, there is not supposed to be Korean on the heart on front XD
The actual schoolmates are babies that lay on their bellies and look ever so cute. They are not adults yet ^^
Natural and Macaron
This brand has a version that is similar to the Natural series and a version that is similar to the Macaron series it seems. They market their alpaca toys are Arpakasso, which is very misleading ;3
This one is a bit of a stretch I admit. The bows of the KHTOY version reminded me of the bows on the Fashionable ones though. Don’t they look similar? Especially the pink head!
I couldn’t find an Amuse series that was exactly like this one. However, I see them being sold at conventions frequently. They are not Amuse brand! They are also made by KHTOYs. I’m sorry I couldn’t find a better picture but they come in Pink, Blue, and Purple.
This one is for fun because Amuse has never released a graduation series of Arpakasso. They can be cute but they are not “Arpakasso” made by Amuse.
Hooded Kids Alpacasso
The real version has girl alpacas with eyelashes! The colors of the hoods and Alpacasso don’t match up either ^u^
