Kawaii Box was one of the first kawaii themed subscription boxes and it’s still going strong. We received the October box so let’s have a look inside.
The box itself has had a colourful redesign and while it arrived very squashed everything inside was in good condition and the printed tissue paper is a nice touch! Each monthly Kawaii Box contains 10-12 items with a mix of stationery, accessories, plush, crafts, candy and more plus a postcard with details of the contents.
The big name items featured two very famous characters – Pikachu and Donald Duck. The Pikachu purse is a good size with cute embroidered details and plenty of room inside for your cash. There’s also a ball chain to hang it from your bag.
I’m not a big Disney fan but this Potepote plushie is super cute with his little hat, bowtie and pink cheeks! It even stands up by itself as there are beans in the body.
You can always expect some cute stationery in your Kawaii Box and this one included a Moomins card, floral envelopes, ice cream eraser and fox pencil, plus stickers!
The stickers are puffy and feature all kinds of happy smiling junk food. Look at those little shrimp tempura.
I was pleased to find a cross stitch kit as it’s a fun easy craft to pick up in the evenings. This kit has a Halloween theme and includes charts and supplies to make two keyrings.
The designs are really cute so I’ll definitely be trying this out soon and will post the results on the SCK Instagram.
Squishies are popular just now and this giant Oreo cookie is pretty realistic and very squishy. It’s also a keyring so you can use it every day.
If your beauty products aren’t kawaii enough, you can decant something boring into this cute monkey spray bottle
And finally, some candy. I wish the postcard gave more details on the products but the Karipori sticks seem to be Cola & Grape flavour and there’s also some Halloween-themed gum.
Kawaii Box is one of the cheapest boxes around from just $17.90 a month with free shipping worldwide. It’s great if you’re on a budget and like getting fun surprise mail with a wide mix of different items. Check out the Kawaii Box site to find out more and sign up for a subscription.
