Every box comes with an info card listing the products along with other various paper slips.

Anpanman Corn Rings

These are like flavorless Funyuns. I wish they had just a little more flavor and I would enjoy them a lot more.

Kawaii Girl Coin Purse

I think this is a neat coin purse for my little sister so it shall be gifted. The doll is actually a little creepy though, I don’t know if I like her staring deep into my soul like that.

Animal Icon Stamp Set

How adorable is this?! The set comes with an ink pad and five tiny stamps. I like the “I’m tired” panda the most. I feel you, panda, I feel you.

Fluffy Pom Pom Keychain

I have a lot of keychains now so this doesn’t really excite me. It’s pink and fluffy and all but I really have enough, thank you.

Kitty Doughnut Squishy

This is a spongey doughnut shaped like Hello Kitty. It’s cute but I’m not sure how to utilize this. Keychain? Backpack trinket?

Hello Kitty Pencil Sharpener

I was actually in dire need of a pencil sharpener right before Kawaii Box landed on my doorstep. It sharpens well and looks cute to boot.

Puffy Dessert Stickers

I never say no to stickers! These are squishy and very colorful.

Pastel Bear Pen

This is a thin ballpoint pen with a mint colored bear on top.

Heart Shaped Silicone Bracelets

This is the animal bracelet fad all over again! I’m not going to wear these or coworkers will judge me, so my sister will get these.

Lucky Star Origami Papers

This is such a throwback to my childhood. Origami stars are really simple to make and look adorable as well. The back of the package includes pictorial instructions. If origami stars aren’t your thing these would also be useful for arts and crafts.

Cute Animal Socks

So cute! The little chipmunk’s eyebrows actually protrude from the sock! I own multiple pairs of cute socks and this will happily join its brethren.

Kasugai Chibi Vege Ramune Candy

These are little solid candies flavored like Ramune, a type of carbonated soda. They’re tasty but there’s nothing fancy about them.

Verdict: My second month of Kawaii Box is all right. There are some adorable things like the animal stamp set and chipmunk socks, but I’m starting to amass a giant keychain, pen, and trinket collection. They’re cute but I don’t know if it’s worth $20 per box for them when you can get similar things in US stores. I still think this would be a great box for little folks though.

I received my first Kawaii box this month and it is awesome! Such a great deal for the curation. Sure, I could pick out some random items on eBay and wait for them each to ship and hope that they arrive. But this is such a nice surprise. They are great little gifts for my daughter. She loves this type of stuff.

Funny you should mention your collection of key chains. I subscribe to this to replenish my 4-year old’s Treasure Box (we reward her when she completes all her chores assigned for the week) and the other day, as I was getting ready to celebrate her achievement, she told me “YAY! Thanks Mommy….oh by the way, please don’t give me anymore keychains” =D

This is cute! I would totally sign up for an all Hello Kitty box! Wish it existed!

Subscription Addiction posted that (I believe) Loot Crate will be doing a bimonthly Hello Kitty box. No release date yet.

Opps..
A Sanrio box (when I hear Sanrio I think automatically of Hello Kitty).

I subscribed to the Kawaii box for several months and found it largely over priced but it was easy to cancel.

Loba

I so want that tired stamp!
