December 2017 Doki Doki by Japan Crate Review
There’s always a nice booklet that comes with each Doki Doki box, and this one is Christmas themed.
On the inside, you’ll find featured images from people who used the #dokidokicrate hashtag on social media, as well as a short description of the theme, which is Holiday Party!
There is also a comic!
Fully unfolded, you’ll find the list of what you received, with short descriptions.
Dolphin Neck Pillow
What a great item for December, when a lot of people are traveling to make it to see friends and family. This curled dolphin is a perfect size and shape to fit around your neck so you can take a cat nap on a plane, train, bus, or car trip. It has super soft fabric in blue and white, with embroidered eyes that look oh-so-anime.
Hello Kitty Mirror
I could have received a folding comb as well but got this Hello Kitty Mirror instead. Much preferred, in my opinion. This handy little mirror folds like a compact and is ultra flat to tuck into a purse or desk drawer. Since I’m always eating and trying out lipsticks, this a great item to have on hand and check my look. I like that you can fold the lid all the way back so it stands on its own.
Christmas Wreath Hoppe-chan Pin
Oh yissss! Another to add to my Hoppe-chan babies but in cute pin form! My beloved soft rubbery dollop is white with a glittery gold star on her head, attached to a bright green wreath decorated with metallic ornaments and a red polka-dot bow! This is a super adorbs piece of flair for the holidays. Until next year, she will hang out with the rest of her siblings.
Gudetama Christmas Charm
Our beloved Gudetama has come to spread Christmas “meh” with their little Santa hat, popping out of a bright red stocking. They probably feel the same way about Christmas as I do, but has mustered up just enough spirit to warm my cold heart. Hang this lazy egg from your travel bag to show your family just enough holiday cheer so you don’t bum them out. 😉
Out of the eight plushies, I received this cute little round Santa with a green elastic loop so he can be dangled or hung somewhere (perhaps a tree?). He’s all decked out in red with tiny black boots and a green holly leaf on his cap.
My Melody Stationery Set
My Melody has been around for ages and was one of the original Sanrio characters. This stationery set includes eight pages, four envelopes, and five stickers to send off to your pen pal in pink delight. My Melody is wearing her signature red cap with a purple bow on top amongst other friends as well as mushrooms. Sets like these are a great way to start sending snail mail again!
Sumikko Gurashi Pen
If you need something to write with, Doki Doki has you covered with this pink double-ended Sumikko Gurashi pen. It writes like a marker in a fuchsia pink and as a bonus- is peach scented too! Our little friend sits on top one end’s cap to oversee your handwriting.
Verdict: Doki Doki sent some super cute items this month that are hard to find for sale online, and a good portion of them are super useful! The neck pillow was thoughtful to send in a high-travel month and the mirror, pen, and stationery will certainly get used by me.
