The-CuteBox-July-2016-Contents

Boxes do not contain info cards; however subscribers are sent a link via email every month that details the monthly items. I found this pretty helpful (I also can’t resist spoilers).

The-CuteBox-July-2016-1

Hello Kitty Plush

This is a licensed TY Hello Kitty Plush! Subscribers get one of various colors; I like mine with her polka dotted dress and lollipop.

Shaka Shaka Gummy

Gummy candies are the best! They come in Cola, Grape, Lemon and Cider flavors. The bag also contains a packet of sour powder that you can pour in and shake to take the flavor to a whole new level.

Chocolate Banana DIY Kit

This DIY kit is easy to make– simply pour out the contents into the included tray and dip your candy bananas into the chocolate sauce and sprinkles!

Kitty Post Cards

I like these neat vintage-style postcards. They were gifted to a kitty-loving friend, who adored them!

The-CuteBox-July-2016-4

Molang Sticky Notes

Molang is a cuddly and rotund rabbit hailing from South Korea. I will definitely be using these to brighten up my otherwise dull textbooks.

Gudetama Stickers

Gudetama is a super lazy egg created by Sanrio. I’m so happy to join in on the Gudetama trend since I’ve been seeing it everywhere! He’s truly an inspiration– I wish I could lay around doing nothing all day. He also sounds very silly.

Flower Headband

This is my first flower headband and I’m excited to join the bohemian fashion trend. I think there were color variations sent out but I love my blue one! The leaves are perfect accents too. The elastic is very stretchy and doesn’t give me a headache.

The-CuteBox-July-2016-5a

Here’s me wearing it at Lollapalooza, a music festival. I felt right at home with the rest of the crowd.

The-CuteBox-July-2016-6

Kawaii Adjustable Rings

The rings are too childish for me but they sure are cute. I’ll be sure to pass this on to my little sister.

Nail Art Wheel

I received a nail art kit in last month’s box too but this month’s is even more versatile. The wheel contains black, silver, and pink gems to bedazzle your nails however you want.

The-CuteBox-July-2016-7

Bird Pen

This pen is wrapped in yellow ribbon and topped with a squishy bird. It writes pretty well too.

Yellow Emoji Mini Squishy Charm

I like the expression on this squishy charm. It reminds me of an emoticon.

The-CuteBox-July-2016-8

Cake Eraser Set

I love these adorable erasers! The packaging matches the pastry theme as well. I don’t know if I can bear to use these as erasers since they’re so cute!

Verdict: I loved July’s The CuteBox! My favorite is the flower headband since I got a lot of mileage out of it at Lollapalooza. The cost breakdown is $1.50 per item, which is a great deal considering one of them is a licensed plush. There are also many items that you can’t easily find in US stores, so I appreciate that aspect as well.

  1. This sub looks adorable!

  2. You look supercute in that headband, Nancy!

    This is an appealing box, but like another Asian box I commented on, I think they should differentiate between adults and children. The charm, pen and rings are all for kids, and take away from the value, in my opinion.

    • Thank you! 🙂

      That’s a good point. It’s possible they target more of a “family” demographic which would explain the mix of kiddie and less-kiddie stuff. Merely speculation though.

  3. You look so cute in that headband, and the review was fun to read and very informative as usual! Those kitty postcards were gorgeous with the bright expressions.

    • Thanks so much, nursermk!

  4. Cute concert photo. The headband looks great! Love the review.

    • Thanks! 🙂 and thanks for reading.

  5. I think that Gudetama may be one of the weirdest, yet most awesome, cartoon characters I’ve ever come across. That cartoon is hilarious. I just lost it at the guy dancing around at the end in the Gudetama costume (which got me weird looks, seeing as I’m in a library!). I want more from this little weird egg guy! Love him!

  6. I love the kitty post cards. They are just too cute.
