Cat Umbrella

Oh, my goodness… we’re starting off with a purple wand of cuteness (and fish raindrops and cat paw prints) that’ll protect us from the rain! Purchasing an umbrella has always been on my mind, but it seems I won’t need to with this (that is, if I can bear to use this T^T). The compact shape of the umbrella is convenient, with a sleeve and handle for easy packing and carrying.

And the cutest part?! The little cat handle is SO adorable (≧∇≦)

Fluffy Cat Plush

Plushie time! Doki Doki has provided us a tour guide for our adventure, and it’s the fearless Sir Flufflenickel here (yes, I name my plushies) to help us navigate and speak with locals. The texture of the plush is similar to an actual cat, with textured fur and the most lovable nose!

Cat Eco Bag

I’m a big fan of eco bags; they’re much sturdier than regular plastic or paper bags from grocery stores, and I can feel good about helping the environment! Because the material of this bag is a little flimsy and thin compared to others I’ve used, I decided to use this as my light groceries bag, such as trips to CVS or quick runs to Whole Foods. The pink background with fluffy cats lounging is a definite mood-upper ♡

Hello Kitty Lanyard

Though a little thin for my taste (I have quite the assortment of keychains), this Hello Kitty lanyard is a necessity for traveling—it’s strong enough to hold my iPhone in a little holder bag. But, even if it’s weak, how can I not use this every day?! The most iconic Japanese cat girl, Hello Kitty, has visited us in this month’s curation!

Weird fact: Did you know Hello Kitty has no mouth? It’s because she speaks from the heart. ♡

Rilakkuma Beach Towel

Okay, I’ll be honest. I squealed when I saw this beach towel! How cute! Perfect for the last beach vacation party with my friends before the school season gets serious~ I enjoy using two-sided towels like these; I’ve found the threaded side is good for absorbing water, and the softer side is best to keep you warm. As Rilakkuma always says, chill out and relax.

Verdict: Another lovable collection of items from Doki Doki this month, featuring little cats! The original value of the box may seem expensive for a few items, but please keep in mind these items are genuine, licensed Sanrio, San-X, etc. products that are quite pricey!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Unfortunately, this one is gone… but you have until the 30th of this month to get October as your first!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.00 + free shipping, which means that each of the 6 items in the box has an average cost of $5.83.
