The CuteBox recently started adding a little info slip to their boxes.
Choco de Puzzle DIY Kit – $3.28 (on sale for $0.10)
This is a DIY chocolate candy kit. I received the bunny mold. It’s pretty easy to make and the resulting chocolates taste amazing!
This kit is currently on sale for just $0.10 because the current stock is nearing its expiration date.
First, you place tiny candy-coated chocolates into the respective divots in the mold.
Next, you heat the provided chocolates (milk chocolate and banana-flavored chocolate) and carefully pour them into the molds.
Finally, stick the mold in the fridge for an hour and the chocolates will harden. They taste just like regular chocolate. The banana flavored parts are unique but still delicious. This kit is one of the best tasting ones I’ve ever made!
Halloween Pocky – $0.40
These are regular Pocky with special packaging in honor of Halloween. The Pocky all came broken but they still taste great.
This box contains a whole roll of stickers! I love the variety. The box is designed so that you can roll out the sheet little by little like a tape dispenser– it’s very neat.
Nail Art Toy
This nail art set comes with tiny confetti and jewels for your nails, a set of floral fake nails, and a nail buffer. The set is cute and would be great as a gift for a young girl or tween.
Devil Horn Hair Clips
There were five colors sent out and I really like my lime green ones! These plastic horns are attached to hair clips, which make them easy to take on and off. The clips themselves can’t handle too much hair at once, but I don’t have a problem with the horns staying on my head. I think these are great for spicing up a costume just a little bit without being too bold.
This is a simple ghost charm with an elastic strap. It’s made from matte plastic. While it doesn’t feel fancy or anything, it does fit into the Halloween vibe.
This is equal parts creepy and awesome. It looks like something from the Alien movie franchise. The spinal cord part makes for a nice grip.
3D Bat Wall Stickers
These are my favorite of the box! They are thin, plastic bats with raised wings that you can stick onto different surfaces. They remind me of the glow-in-the-dark stars that I used to have on the walls of my childhood bedroom, except these don’t glow. If I had trick-or-treaters come by I probably would have decorated my front door with these. I don’t get anyone at my apartment complex, though.
Halloween Origami Paper
This is a pack of Halloween-themed origami papers. If origami isn’t your thing, the sheets can also be used as regular arts and crafts supplies.
I’ll be honest, these don’t erase very well, but we all know animal erasers aren’t actually meant to be used. They are only taken out of pencil pouches to be stared at. Their sole purpose is to increase personal happiness and maybe cause envy in others. In this regard, the erasers are very effective!
Verdict: This box was well rounded and fun to open. The cost breakdown is about $1.80 per item. It seems a little high because of a few of the items– like the Pocky, ghost strap, and animal erasers– aren’t worth much if you purchase them separately. However, I do enjoy the curation and I think it’s one of the more affordable Kawaii boxes out there. Despite my reservations about the low-value items, the box still feels like a win overall.
