Disney Tsum Tsum Stickers close up of Disney Tsum Tsum Stickers

Disney Tsum Tsum Stickers - Retail Value $2.20

I'm not super crazy for Tsum Tsum, but these stickers are pretty darn cute. They are puffy so they can be squished and have a more 3D aspect than your average sticker. This sticker set is Christmas themed so they're perfect for holiday cards and wintery flair.

Disney Tsum Tsum Chocolate Disney Tsum Tsum Chocolate on plate

Disney Tsum Tsum Chocolate - Retail Value $1.40

Crispy Chocolate, you say? I'm eating. This kind of tastes like a KitKat, but is larger and almost more chocolatey. It somehow got a little melty in transit but still tastes yummy and has a cute package.

Sanrio Characters Photo Props - Retail Value $2.30

I like the idea of these props, but they are pretty itsy bitsy, so they are more for using on your pets or Sanrio plushes. They also come with little sticky foam squares so you can stick them places or perhaps attach a popsicle stick to hold them up with. The round glasses with Cinnamaroll popping out from a cloud is probably my favorite of the bunch.

Disney Tsum Tsum Christmas Card - Buy a set of 12 for $7.80

My word. I did not understand this card until I saw it on the Blippo website. It folds out in a unique way to give it a 3D quality and allows it to stand on its own. There are a lot of familiar Disney faces on the front and back and the inside greeting reads "Have A Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year!"

Flower DIY Beads Set - Retail Value $3.50

I made friendship bracelets and necklaces all the time in my youth, so this set really brings me back. There is a myriad of sizes, shapes, and colors here with some clear plastic "floss" to string the beads on and create anything your heart desires. I'm not saying that only kids can enjoy this, but personally, I don't see myself using this to make anything. This would make a really cute craft with a more creatively inclined friend though!

Hello Kitty Xmas Cookie Mold - Retail Value $4.90

I don't think I've ever made holiday cookies on my own, but I used to help my Mom all the time when I was young. It was a huge tradition in our house back then. Baking is usually not so good to me, so I normally avoid it as much as possible. My local library participates in local bake sales from time to time though, so I may have to use these for such an event. This set has two plastic cutters (Hello Kitty and her Bear friend) that each includes a stamp that you also press into the cookie to get a defined look. Top these off with royal icing and they'd make the cutest cookies in town.

Shiba Inu 2018 Calendar - Retail Value $3.60 (found here for $2.52)

2018 is the year of the dog in the Chinese Zodiac and one of Japan's most popular breed is the Shiba Inu. This desk calendar is uber cute and has several different faces as the months go on. Keep this adorable grey pooch with a red bandana on your desk to brighten even the darkest days of Winter.

Hello Kitty Gingerbread Soft Purse - Retail Value $5.90

Don't feel like carrying a full bag around but need to step out and have some money and ID? This soft plush Hello Kitty coin purse is perfect for the occasion. I often forget ingredients while cooking, so sometimes I have to run up to the corner store to grab something and I don't always feel like toting my purse along. This way, I can keep cash, change, or even a key together in a zippered pouch with our old gal. Her puffy pink polka dot bow makes this even plusher.

Verdict: Kawaii Box sent eight ultra kawaii items in December's box which cost $24.90 and had an approximate retail value of $24.45. I'd have to say that the calendar and stickers are probably the best part of this month for me. Although cute, I found the jewelry kit a little too young for my liking and the photo props won't serve me very well. This wasn't my favorite Kawaii Box, but I know they have great stuff, so I'm looking forward to January.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. You will always receive the following month's box of the month you subscribe in. Order by the end of January to receive February's Box.

I thought those photo props were like stickers to be used on photos? Hence the name photo props? How would we use them on our pets? I’m sorry, I’m just confused.. Lol

Most i have seen are just like card stock cutouts, so not sticky.
