The box comes with a cute card listing the 12 products included.


Karipori Candy Sticks

Yum! I’ve never tried Karipori Candy Sticks before but I really liked them. There were four packets in this box and two candy sticks in each packet. Two of the packs were cola flavored and two were grape. When you bite into these sticks they start to get a little fizzy – similar to pop rocks.

Pikachu Coin Purse

Pikachu is probably the most recognizable Pokémon and this coin purse is adorable! I’m either going to use this to level up my laundry change storage or to keep track of all the little things that usually get lost in my purse.


Moomin Greeting Card

I had to look up who the Moomins were and I can’t believe I’ve never seen them before! They’re so cute! This card states “Life is better when you’re laughing” and the inside is blank for you to personalize.


The back of the card says “Both together do best of all”.


Disney PotePote Bean Plush

For my PotePote plush keychain, I got Marie from the Aristocats! My keychain collection is getting a little out of hand but I Marie is so cute with her pink bow and I’m excited to find a place for her.



She has a cute little bow on the back too!


Square Animal Spray Bottle

This animal spray bottle has a cute, little cat on the front. I’m not sure what I’ll use this for yet but I was thinking this might be a cute travel bottle for a hair product.


DIY Cross Stitch Keychain Kit

I haven’t done cross stitch in a long time but now I’m ready to get back into it! This kit comes with two needles, thread, and two keychains with patterns you can follow. It also has a little star charm to hang from your keychain once you’ve finished it!



Cute Mechanical Pencil

This pencil has a sweet little fox on it. I can always use another pen or pencil to keep in my bag so this will get plenty of use from me.


Squishy Oreo Keychain

This Oreo is squishy and the cream in mine is pink! This is a cute way to show your love for Oreos.



Food Themed Stickers

I love these puffy stickers! I can definitely see myself using these in a scrapbook or using them to mark dinner plans in my planner!



Japanese Sakura Envelopes

This set of five envelopes is perfect for little notes or gifts. I’m excited to fill these with little kawaii treats to hand out to friends!


Happy Food Eraser

This little eraser is a perfect companion to the mechanical pencil. The pencil does have an eraser on top but I always appreciate an excuse to carry around a little ice cream sundae!


Marukawa Halloween Gum

This came with two gum sticks in the package. The gum tasted familiar and after a few seconds, I think it reminded me most of Fruit Stripe gum. I’m not a huge gum chewer but this was tasty! And the Halloween character on the label was so cute!


Verdict: Kawaii Box lives up to its name. It’s a nice little collection of the type of Kawaii stuff I pick up whenever I see a shop available. I think the value in this box comes from the availability of the items. It’s hard to estimate a value of each item in this box but I would guess that it hovers around the monthly subscription cost. But most of these items I don’t have regular access to so it’s nice to have a collection delivered!
