Unlike previous months, this month’s box came with a little item slip! Hooray!
Mochi Matcha DIY Kit
This is an easy DIY kit that involves softening mochi pellets and dipping them in tasty sauces.
It comes with several packets and easy instructions.
Simply hydrate the dried mochi with water (but not too much) and pour the flavorings onto the plate. Then, pick up mochi with mini fork, swirl it with chocolate and matcha powder, and consume.
Green Apple Hi-Chew
Hi-Chew is a chewy gum-like candy that taste similar to Starbursts. This is the green apple flavor and deserves two thumbs up.
Iwako Unicorn Eraser
This is a green unicorn– enough said. You can also take the unicorn apart appendage by appendage, if that is your thing.
Hello Kitty Pin
This is a small pin that shows Hello Kitty at a picnic with friends.
Puffer Fish Stickers
Do you like dopey claymation-looking puffer fish? Well then, this sticker sheet is for you. A couple will be going on my notebooks.
How adorable! This is a pocket notebook with Rilakkuma and friends on the cover. It’s small enough to stick inside purses or pockets. The sheets are lined.
Uchiwa Animal Face Pen
I thought this was only a hand fan, but it turns out the bottom is a pen. Actually, it may not even be a fan at all. It’s cute but not very practical– it doesn’t fit in my pencil pouch!
This is a rubbery Rilakkuma keychain in accordance with the cute theme. I find his deadpan face pretty amusing.
Pastel Bead Bracelet
This is a stretchy bracelet made with weighty plastic beads. The fit is slightly tight on my wrists so I think it’s best for children.
Bunny Ears Hair Tie
This is a cute fabric scrunchy. It doesn’t scream “bunny” as much as a red bow tie, though.
Cute Bow Socks
Theses ankle socks are cute and fit my Size 7 feet perfectly. The bow tie design peeps over low canvas shoes to give my outfit just a little extra pop.
Fruit Bunny Plush
This is a soft bunny with strawberries for ears. It has a suction cup but it honestly doesn’t work very well. It’s probably better to just cut that part off the plush.
This is an adorable, fuzzy coin purse with a ball chain. I love the red bow tie too, it matches the socks!
Verdict: August’s The CuteBox was nice but nothing really stood out for me other than the DIY kit, which was easy to make and tasty. With 13 total items the cost breakdown is $1.38 apiece, which is a good value. I think the item selection isn’t as exciting as previous boxes, though. Here’s hoping that the next month is a little better!
