December 2017 YumeTwins Review
You’ll receive an info card with directions on how to access a list of the items in this month’s box online.
Sumikko Gurashi Room Shoes/Slippers
Sumikko Gurashi are really becoming my new fave group of characters from San-X. These pink and white fuzzy room shoes are UNBELIEVABLY SOFT and have grippies on the bottom from preventing a fall on hardwood floors. This pleases me greatly since I slipped down my hardwood steps a couple months ago with my leather-soled slippers. Grrrr. Anyhow- I’ve been wearing these around the house for a while now and just love how soft and warm they are. I luckily have super small feet and they fit perfectly, so I fear that anyone with normal adult-sized feet won’t fit into them. They’re also perfect to travel with since they are soft and don’t have a hard sole.
Rascal Cat in Grey
This 10-inch tall fat grey kitty is ultra soft and so round and cute. I immediately picked her up and held her in my arms like a baby. It was instinctual! Everything about this plushie is perfect! Her little paws have pink embroidered paw pads and she has darker grey stripes on her back and head as well. I believe she’s a Scottish Fold, due to her ears, which I know is a popular breed in Japan. Completely obsessed.
Rilakkuma Multi-Use Case
This item is a bit of a head-scratcher for me. It’s a good size at 7 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches, but is quite flat, so not too much fits in here. Most documents that I need to save are larger, but I could see using this as a cute place to stow a birth certificate or passport. Stickers may be another good thing to store in here, as long as they aren’t too long. What would you put in here?
Marumofubiyori Moppu Mechanical Pencil
Mechanical pencils are my jam, and this one features the newest Sanrio character: Moppu the polar bear from the Marumofubiyori trio which also features a blue fish and a red crab that can be seen on the floor and the back of the couch, respectively. Here, Mop is snuggled under a fuzzy polka-dot blanket on a couch keeping warm inside. She also may or may not be binge-watching Netflix. That is my kind of bear! The pencil also has a white eraser at the end in a plastic cover, which is classic.
Ah, cool! A Marumofubiyori eraser as well! When that little one on the pencil runs out, I will be using this soft pink eraser to get rid of my myriad of spelling mistakes. Here, you can see Gyoniku-san (the fish) and Kanikama-san (the crab) a bit more clearly, on top of Moppu’s head. These three are too darn cute!
Realistic Fluffy Cake Squishy
Finally, we have a small cake squishy! The one I received has fruit slices and blueberries atop fluffy white icing and yellow cake with a little sign that reads “Happy Anniversary!”. It’s hooked to a cold ball chain so you can use it as a charm and squish on the go.
Verdict: YumeTwins was awesome this month! I’m always saying how less is more to me, and this box is a perfect example. Even though I received only six items this time, I really loved almost everything and thought the quality was great. Pencils and erasers are always super usable, the slippers are just what I’ve been needing, and lest we forget my new little baby cat!! The Rilakkuma flat file case was a bit weird, but I’m sure I’ll find a use for it.
