YumeTwins January 2019 “Happy Zoo Year” Review
You’ll receive a booklet with information on each item, contests, and kawaii culture. The theme this month is “Happy Zoo Year.”
Aggretsuko Plushie – Retail Value $11.40
Well, this is Sanrio plushie is terrifying. I guess this panda Rockstar, featuring “KISS-esque” makeup is a pop culture icon, but for a subscription box about “cute things,” this was kind of a scary first item to pick out of the box!
Kawaii Scrunchie & Badge Set – Retail Value $5.28
Scrunchies are back! This scrunchie could be a cute statement hairpiece, or you could secure it to your bag for a fun accent. The pin can be worn on the scrunchie, or as a compliment to your kawaii ensemble.
Kawaii Zodiac Boar Blanket – Retail Value $4.83
2019 is the Chinese zodiac year of the pig (or boar in Japan), so it makes sense that this little fleece blanket was included in the box! Measuring about 24” x 26”, it’s the perfect size to keep your lap warm! Personally, I think that the boars on the green background kind of look football-esque, so I can see using this to keep warm in the bleachers!
Big Sanrio Stickers – Retail Value $1.15
These stickers are egg-cellent (get it – ha!)
Medetai Chopping Board – Retail Value $2.15
I had a lot of trouble getting this cutting board to lay flat, which isn’t ideal for a cutting board. I think it would work well to protect your counter, but I think I’ll stick to my heavy wooden boards! One thing to note, this is a very thin piece of plastic, and depending on your décor and style, might make for cute wall art.
Medetai Kitchen Sponge – Retail Value $1.61
This sponge matches the cutting board, but I think that it would even make a great bathtub toy for a kiddo! Who can’t use another cute sponge to help out around the house?
Verdict: This month’s YumeTwins box was tough for me. The items were usable, but they just didn’t appeal to me that much. I think kawaii enthusiasts might love this box, but for me, the value and quality weren’t there – and frankly, I didn’t think the items were that cute. Using the value listed on the website, I come up with $26.42 in retail prices, which is less than I paid for the box.
