Each box will consist of 8 to 10 yume kawaii inspired items sent straight from Japan. Yume kawaii is a new kawaii movement that is a mixture of cuteness and fairytales, with a touch of darkness. Yume itself means “dream”, so not only does yume kawaii center around cute styles, but it also has a magical dreamy feel to it. Items can include plushies, keychains, stationery, squishies, candy, collectible figures, wearables, accessories, and more. All products are from officially licensed brands/franchises such as Sanrio, Sailor Moon, Re-Ment, Amuse, Ban Dai, Takara Tomy, and more.
Let’s see what’s in the June 2016 YumeTwins box!
The pretty purple & white box!
Even the inside lid was cute-ified! 😉
A peek inside.
A full color info booklet included photos of the latest pop culture trends in Tokyo, contests, and a full run-down of all the items featured in June’s debut box.
C’est bon Star Ring – These collectible plastic rings are apparently very popular in Japan right now. They come in a variety of colors and designs, which are sold in blind boxes. We received a pretty gold moon ring with a bright pink star gem. The box also contained a small packet of candies. My girls have been fighting over this ring since they opened it, so I’d say it’s a hit. 😉
Sanrio Gudetama Coin Purse – Gudetama is a “lazy egg” character from Sanrio. This little coin purse features him laying beneath a blanket of bacon (ew) on the front, and on a plate surrounded by more food on the back. Again, my kiddos snatched this up as soon as they saw it.
Ban Dai Sailor Moon Plushie – My niece was obsessed with Sailor Moon when she was little, so I’m kinda familiar with the characters but not too much. This mini plushie features Sailor Saturn and was created in celebration of Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary.
Prism Paradise Heart Case – Prism Paradise (or PriPara) is a Japanese arcade game by Takara Tomy. This little heart-shaped compact is perfect for holding little kawaii trinkets once you’ve eaten all the colorful candies it came with.
Re-Ment Funassyi Diorama Stickers – According to Wikipedia, Funassyi is a Japanese mascot character, unofficially representing the city of Funabashi, Chiba. It was created by a citizen of Funabashi with the objective of cheering up local residents and to help promote its hometown. It’s also a pear, whose favorite food is peaches… And it enjoys heavy metal. (Only in Japan. 😉 ) These stickers can be placed on the included space background or used for decorating cards, notebooks, etc.
Camio Jacquard Mini Towel Ribbon – A pretty pink towel/handkerchief adorned with hearts and ribbons. I see these pop up in Japanese boxes a lot, so I’m guessing they get carried around a lot over there. I think we’ll just use ours as a washcloth. 🙂
Anywhere Gudetama Mascot – Another blind box! This one featured our favorite lazy egg friend, Gudetama, in various poses. I got a sort of boring pose of him just laying down. Other options showed him sitting up, holding a strawberry, wearing a mustache, etc.
Camio Mini Panda Memo – Last, but not least, a little panda-themed notepad! Half of the pages feature the design in the first photo, while the other half features the second design. Cute!
I absolutely LOVED the debut box from YumeTwins! — Needless to say, my girls did too. 😉 It was packed with so many cute Japanese trinkets & collectibles and we had lots of fun opening everything up. — Remember, through June 30th you can save 40% on your first box with coupon code “EARLYBIRD“!
