Artist Series Stickers
Doki Doki says that each month, the booklet cover is designed by a different artist. This month’s artist is Kata, and she illustrated the egg stickers! Doki Doki’s in house artist drew the birds as onigri stickers. These are quite fun!
These are really pretty in person, and they say “Hello Lovely Girls” on the barrel of the pen. They’re both black ink and they write smoothly.
This is a super cute little notebook. It’s about 2 inches wide and 4 inches tall. I like that it has a rubber band attached to keep it closed!
Re-ment Curry Plates blind box
This is super tiny! About 2 inches by 1 inch.
Re-ment Onigri blind box
This blind box came with a little chain so you can attach it to your purse or backpack.
Bento Box Food Cups
These are super cute. They are essentially a cupcake wrapper designed to hold your snacks in your bento box!
This is a package of three disposable bento boxes. They come flat, so you just fold them up and you’re ready to go. These bento boxes have a foil type lining to keep your food warm while you’re on the go.
Cat Paw Squishy (not pictured)
My niece nabbed this one, and the picture I initially had taken was blurry, so my retake doesn’t include this. It was blue and fuchsia.
How fun is this? The little sprinkles actually look like sprinkles! I have a friend that will love this, so it’s going to her!
Kawaii Sauce Holders
These include a little funnel to fill your sauce holders. I tested them out to see if they leak, and if you have it upside down and squeeze, it does leak (expected, right?), and if it’s just laying on its side, it doesn’t. I love the bento box items this month!
Space Food Picks
Another bento item! These are little picks that you can use to pick up small pieces of food. I received 8 of them and they are so incredibly adorable. There’s 2 of each of these: planet (looks like Saturn), an alien, a star, and a spaceship.
Verdict: I loved this month’s box – all of the Bento items are so cute and useful! This box is really difficult to find the items online and determine the value. This is one of those boxes where you have to evaluate if you find the products worth the cost of the box. I received 13 items, so it is essentially paying about $2.30 for each, which is reasonable to me! Next month’s theme is Japanese Arcade, which seems like it would be fun as well!
What did you think of Doki Doki this month? Everything is so adorable, as usual.
