Pikachu Luggage Tag

I have loved Pokemon since I was a little kid and would rush home from school to catch the latest episode on tv! Pikachu is undoubtedly the most iconic character from the show, and this adorable luggage tag is the perfect homage to the little electric fellow. Though I am not a kid anymore, I am not sure I could resist attaching this tag to my luggage on my next big trip.

Pokemon Keychain Ornament – Buy a set of 5 Pokemon for $40.00

There was a chance to get one of 5 assorted Pokemon keychains and it looks like Pikachu chose us! This smaller keychain is really detailed and well painted. It is also small enough to sneak onto your keychain without feeling juvenile. He is also made out of a rather flexible plastic, so I don’t have to worry about breaking his ears or tail off on accident. A little piece of gum was included in the box.

Pikachu Rice Mold

This is the silliest and most amazing Pokemon product I have yet seen. It is a rice mold in the shape of Pikachu’s head and included with the mold are shapes you can use to create his facial features. I can only imagine how delighted I would have been to open my lunchbox to this as a kid! Per the booklet, you can also use it for rice and mashed potatoes.

Palm-sized Animal Plushie

This cute blue bird was one of 20 possible animals you can get in your box this month. It is a wonderful little gift some someone in your life who loves super kawaii things.

Sanrio Stickers

I also adored everything Sanrio as a kid. I remember we used to have a Sanrio store nearby growing up and after getting good marks in school my Nana would take me to pick our special erasers, compacts, or stationary with these cute characters. These little stickers have the whole gang!

Hello Kitty Sticky Notes

Even as an adult I can’t get enough cute stationery. These little stickies are the perfect size for smaller notes or flagging important items in paperwork or books.

Verdict: This month’s YumeTwins box really made me smile! The Pokemon and Sanrio items were so nostalgic for me. I love how all of the items were pretty useful, even though I am not a kid anymore. The only thing I will be gifting would be the plushie, but I know the perfect person for it! I wish I had gotten at least one of the Eevee items, but Pikachu is another favorite so I am still pleased. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but you have until January 31st to order the February box (check out the most recent spoilers here).

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I waited for my third box to give this review. I wanted to be sure my experience was consistent, because one terrible box, that happens.

    In my three boxes, not once did I receive any of the items advertised I would receive. Not once did I receive any items of the sneak peak from the web site. Instead, I receive random super ugly bad plastic gadget, from unknown character and brands, each time the colors are dark blue or black with cheap paint on it, each time nothing is cute in the box except the sticker.

    I waited for my third box, because I really wanted to have ONE good box, one that would at least have ONE cute item like they advertise. But no.

    I contacted customer service but no reply. So i guess, i will cancel. Hopefully will have more luck than me, but again, I had 3 consistent terrible box that had not one item in common with the advertised ones….

    • They told me they had to replace some items, aka all the good ones. It sucks! Now I don’t know what to do with this stuff.

  2. This isn’t even worth $35! WTH?!

  3. Anyone else not get a luggage tag or Pokémon ornament? I got a Pokémon zipper wallet thing instead of a luggage tag and a dumb keychain of random other Pokémon instead of the ornament. I was really hoping to get what was expected. When I emailed them they just said they had to replace some items but I wasn’t even aware. So bummed, I cancelled.

    • Aww that’s not good! I hate when this happens in subs, especially when you read spoilers and think you know what’s coming. I hope you find another you like even better!
