Kawaii Box Subscription Review – September 2014
Kawaii Box is a monthly subscription that sends you cute items from Japan and Korea. “Kawaii” means “cute” in Japanese!
This review is of the September Kawaii Box, but my September box didn’t reach me until October. I don’t think this is typical; their website says that shipping time is usually around 2 weeks, and they do email you a tracking number!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Alpacasso Plush Pouch – value: $8.99?
Polka Dot Headband
This little alpaca pouch is absolutely ridiculous and adorable and I love it. It’s not even like me, but it’s just too cute (which, I suppose, is the ultimate point of this whole box anyway)! I couldn’t find this specific item online, but I did find something very close to it to estimate a value.
I can’t find any information on this headband, but it has a wire in the bow so you can control how it looks (and so it’ll stay in place), which I think is great.
Pink and Purple Leather Luggage Tag
Purple Donut Bear Keychain
While and Pink Polka Dot Moustache Shoelaces
This luggage tag feels like a really nice quality, and the colors are really pretty – I’m looking forward to attaching this to my suitcase!
DIY-POP Bands and U-Shaped Loom
Rilakkuma Waffle Flavor Snack Sticks
If I can find some instructions online to print out, I know my little sister-in-law would love this rubber band bracelet kit! You make them with a U-shaped loom and colored rubber bands.
These snack sticks are interesting – they’re like biscuit sticks. I like the flavor in general, but the texture felt kind of gritty to me.
Hamu Hamu Town Stickers
Sweet Cat Notepad
These stickers are an assortment of bears, pizza, ice cream cones, donuts, etc. Also, this notepad’s papers are all pink and when I flipped it over, I saw this on the back! (below)
This little note seems kind of random but it’s definitely super sweet.
Fruit Nail Art Pieces
I wish there were an info card included because I’m not 100% sure what these little tiny fruit pieces are. They’re thicker than nail art stickers, but definitely still thin enough that you could lay them on wet polish and put a top coat over them and have them stay.
Also, this keychain is really squishy and the sprinkles are a nice touch, but they keep falling off when I squeeze it!
Cat Dust Plug
The last item in the box was this cat dust plug – you put it in the headphone jack of your phone/tablet/etc and it stays put and keeps dust from getting in (and adds a cute charm to your phone).
Verdict: I’ve reviewed a few Asian-themed boxes, but I think Kawaii Box is my favorite! Everything in it is most definitely kawaii (cute), and I know I can pass along whatever items I may not use myself. I wish there were an information card – hopefully with a little extra information I could do a cost breakdown, or at the very least be sure about what everything is! These items are nice because they’re just a bunch of cute little things that anyone can use or appreciate, and not only action figures or all food.
