Kanahei Usagi Plushie – Value $5.90

Here’s yet another character plushie who I don’t know. I love that Kawaii Box is always sending me new things to discover instead of the same 15-20 things I may know about. Kanahei is a popular illustrator and Usagi-bunny is one of her characters! This cute pink bunny is about 4.5 inches tall, toe to ear, and is made of a soft faux fur. She comes with a ball chain which makes her easily attached to your backpack or key ring. She brings such a smile to my face!

Outshine The Sun Bottle  Value $8.90

Gaaaah this small happy sun bottle is just too darn cute and can be used for any drink on the go, but comes with a special attachment to help with tea. I couldn’t quite figure out how to make the said attachment stay, so let me know if you can guide me! I can still use this without it as a water bottle and I love the teal blue color way I received. It isn’t double-walled like a thermos, so it’s probably best used when you don’t need to keep your drink especially hot or cold. It measures 6.5 inches high and has a diameter of 2 inches.

Milky Colorful Gel Ink Pen – Value $1.60

This orange gel pen is REAL NICE, you guys. I love a thin point and this one looks to be about 0.5 mm. I’m guessing you could have gotten any of the 12 colors that Blippo offers, and even though orange isn’t my go-to when purchasing pens, it matches some paper I got in Doki Doki this month (review coming soon!)! I love how slender this cow-print pen is and the fact that you can pop the cap on the other end when using (that doesn’t always happen with kawaii pens). Big win for me here.

Cute Stamp Highlighter – Value $1.90

Another cute stationery item! I am cleaning up! There look to be six different designs available and I received the green apple, which looks suspiciously like a certain computer company’s logo. I’m not sure how I feel about that but will let it slide. This is basically a self-inking stamp in pen form that allows you to decorate letters, notes, or whatever else may need some sprucing up! I used to love collecting rubber stamps, so this is a much easier way to go about it.

PomPomPurin Sanrio Plush Pencil Bag – Value $6.20

Yay! PomPomPurin (aka Purin, to close friends) is an old favorite Sanrio character of mine! He’s a golden retriever who wears a beret and loves pudding. I’ve received some candy with him before, but nothing substantial like this pencil case. Y’all know I’m pencil and pen crazy, so this soft plush pencil pouch is dreamy! His ears are floppy, so you can flip them up and down, and he has a strap on the back so you can attach to a notebook. This would be perfect for a student who loves kawaii gear. I’m keeping my new pens and stamp in it, currently.

Sumikko Gurashi Stickers – Value $2.50

Kawaii Box never disappoints with their sticker selection, and this month is no exception. These squishy animal friends are making my heart go pitter patter! This particular sheet has our friends studying for school together, which is perfect timing. There really is too much cuteness to behold here, but my favorite of the bunch has to be the one where they are all reading a large book, some with magnifying glasses, and a little pokey fella sticking out from a page! Eeeee!

Pompompurin Pudding Gummies – Value $3.10

There is always a snack lurking within Kawaii Box, and here we have more Pompompurin, serving us some pudding gummies. I told you he loves pudding! The teeny flan gummies taste just how you’d imagine- similar to an eggy pudding like creme brulee. YUM.


Kawaii Tofu Squishy Charm – Value $2.90

Last month we got a squishy bun, and now we get a squishy tofu. I’m not mad about it!! I love these squishers! I had hung my bun from my laptop tote and sadly one day, I got caught on something and ripped it from its charm loop. It was completely in tact otherwise, so I decided to keep it in my car to squish during tense moments in traffic. I think I’m going to keep my new hot pink tofu friend here at my desk so I can gaze off into the trees that surround me and SQUISH SQUISH SQUISH any stress away. It smells like some sort of sweet treat, but I can’t put my finger on it.

Sweet Kiss Cherry Lip Gloss – Value $1.70

I thought this would be more of a balm than a gloss, but it really is glossy. I love it’s fuchsia pink container that hides the purple gloss (which goes on clear). This certainly is more fun than a plain old stick of lip balm.

Sparkle Rainbow Slinky – Value $1.50

We are sadly at our last August item and it’s a glittery rainbow slinky! Much safer and more fun than the original metal slinky, this one is super duper light and ombre’s from pink to green. Since it’s so small, I couldn’t get it to slink down any steps, but it is nice to weigh back and forth in my hands. Sometimes, that is enough.

Verdict: Kawaii Box once again can do no wrong in my eyes. The items they send always make me squeal and screech. I can always count on them for at least one sheet of stickers, one plush, one pen, and I’m loving the squishiness they’ve been including as well. After totaling the items up, I got a value of $36.20 retail, which exceeds the cost of $24.90. Can’t wait to see what’s next! MOAR KAWAII PLEASE!

Do love Kawaii Box as much as I do

  1. I haven’t been able to figure out how to use the bottle attachment either. I was kinda hoping that you’d been able to figure it out!

    • I thought the blippo website would help, but nooooo. 🙁 Someone help us!

  2. I thought by the way the comments were written it was you and I was right. I did not look at the top of the review to see who it was. Great job. Thanks.

    • Hahaha, you know me so well, Virgina!

  3. Love your reviews. This sub is a great example of a bunch of things no one needs…but would make anyone just happy!

    • Thanks Julie!

  4. THis looks like super cheap daiso store stuff.

    • That is sorta how I feel and what I was thinking….of course as my 7 year old was looking going “oooohhhh I want that and that and that and that…” LOL. But overall I think the Dollar Spot at Target has better quality items and better prices…..

    • I can totally see what you mean by some of the stuff (except the licensed Sanrio and San-X items). I wouldn’t hate a Daiso box though because we don’t have one here in PGH and I love it! 😉

  5. Freaking adorable!
