The items come packaged in a pretty lavender colored box with kawaii illustrations. You receive 8-10 items in each box. There is only one variant at present. The contents each month are categorized under a theme. The box is based on yume kawaii culture – “a mixture of cuteness, fairytales and, a touch of darkness (yami)!” They send only fully licensed merchandise from Japanese brands.
The theme for August 2016 was Lovable Animals. Yume Twins subscription box is priced at $19.19USD plus $6.00 for shipping totaling to $29.99 per month.
Words fail to describe how excited I am to receive and unbox Yume Twins parcel.
Let’s see what’s in the August 2016 YumeTwins box!
Neko Atsume Memo Pad:
This memo pad features cat prints. The pages are colorful and fun. It will be a nice addition to my stationery collection.
Subscribers would have received a pen featuring Gudetama, Hello Kitty, or Pompompurin. I love Hello Kitty but I am glad that mine matches the letter set. I got the Pompompurin Variant.
Pompompurn Letter Set:
The Pompompurin letter set that features 12 colorful letter pages, 6 envelopes, and 6 character stickers. Cute stationery !!
Re-Ment Mare Sweets Mascot:
Mare is a Japanese TV Drama. All the charms are sweets-themed and I received the chocolate-strawberry version. Another cute goodie. The girl in Mare wants to be a pastry chef. That’s why all of the Re-Ment miniatures are cakes!
The box included a sheet with details on variants and a sour gum too.
Gudetama Limp Mascot:
The squishy Gudetama egg is kinda awful. It’s different than how it’s pictured in the booklet It’s very dark and Gudetama floating inside is almost invisible. I love Gudetama though. It had a weird chemical smell.
Airou and Merarou Towel:
I received the pink version and it’s awesome. It’s not rough like other hand towels I have. That stitched kitty in the corner adds to the charming finish. This bright mini towel features the characters from Monster Hunter. According to the booklet, this can only be purchased at the Tokyo Tower or Kaminarimon in Asakusa.
Amuse Alpacasso Plush:
The tutu plush is adorable, so soft and comes with a keychain hook.
It’s a really good quality plushie as it has many cute details. I wished for the rainbow colored variant but this one is equally good too.You can hang it anywhere or make him stands too!
Shinada Fluffy Animal Plush:
This plush is soft, cuddly and also comes with a keychain hanger. The quality is perfect with no loose threads hanging here and there. I got a cute teddy bear with real wooden buttons. Subscribers could have received pig, frog, bear, bunny, or lamb! I so love its neutral colors.
The box is a value for money. Most of the items are useful. Shipping and delivery were quick. There is a beautiful booklet included with the box that provides details on places to shop, Kawaii trends, popular places to visit like Harajuku and contents of the monthly box. Yume Twins team is very friendly. You get deals and offers on signup. The box sure brings loads of happiness my way.
The Yume Twins box is authentic and interesting. They include high-end brands and characters like Sanrio, Gudetama, Bandai, Takara Tomy, Rilakkuma, Doraemon, Hello Kitty and much more!
I highly recommend this box to those who like cute collectibles and love the Japanese Kawaii pop culture. If Kawaii is your cup of tea, Buy a Yume Twins Box without fail.
