Kabaya Panda Cookies
Unfortunately these chocolate-coated cookies came melted. It’s not surprising since it traveled all the way from Singapore and in the scorching summer heat. The cookies were tasty but also a little messy.
Kawaii Animals Pouch
I love how the animals are labeled things like “happy monkey” or “happy duck.” The pouch is large enough to store coins and some bills.
Summer Fruits Stickers
This sticker set is adorable! Each fruit has a little face on them (my favorite is the grape one). I think any one sticker is enough to cheer someone up.
Fresh Juice Fan
This is a neat folding fan to cool down the hot hot summer days. I might carry it around for when I’m outside playing Pokemon Go.
Harajuku Bow Hairpin
This is a funky hairpin! The bow is made of mesh while the colored puffballs move around if you squish them. I will gift this to my little sister.
Ice Cream Charm
This is one of my favorite ice cream charms yet! It’s made of some soft, squishy material, but the best part is the elastic strap. Oftentimes the strap isn’t elastic so it’s hard to really attach charms to anything. This solves the problem.
Plastic Bear Bag Charm
This is a plastic bear charm with moveable limbs. I swear I’ve seen this type of bear before. Maybe it’s a toy line?
Kawaii Animals Pocket Mirror
This compact mirror is great for quick touch-ups. However, the plastic cover feels fragile so I don’t think it will survive the depths of a heavy purse.
I love this watermelon coin purse! It’s perfect for the summer.
Baby Elephant Mini Plush
This baby elephant is a little amorphous; I would have believed you if you claimed it was a baby mouse. That said, it’s egg-shaped body and ball chain makes it a good candidate for decorating backpacks or keychains.
Korean Deco Glitter Set
I’m not a big fan of glitter. If it’s on my eyelids then it’ll irritate my contact lenses. If it’s part of clothing or trinkets then it will undoubtedly transfer to other surfaces. However, I think this loose glitter will work well for nail art! There are six color options and I will attempt them for glittery nails in the future.
Pastel Pom Pom Pen
This is a very fine tip pen with a sturdy barrel and grip. I’m surprised by how much I like it! Oftentimes fine tipped pens skip a lot on paper, but this one does a fairly good job of smooth clean lines.
Verdict: June’s Kawaii Box was fun to explore! I think the chocolate cookies were a bad choice for summer months, but the rest of the items were great choices. The cost breakdown is about $1.65 per item. Similar to past months, this is a great box filled with cute trinkets for kids of many ages, but you can find similar types of items in US stores for similar prices. That said, Kawaii Box delivers on unique kawaii cuteness that is tough to find in the States!
