  1. what about akibento? hehe I love YumeTwins and Pusheen, gotten before and super adorable!!

  2. I just have to say Pusheen is the best sub box ever. It makes me so happy. And ,honestly, I don’t even care for cats that much. But I love Pusheen! Such a great assortment of items.

  3. Pusheen for the win in this house. Once my teenager outgrew her “I’m a grown up” phase and realized its still ok to like kid things she came back to Pusheen. I love what they send in the box. Its such a fun variety and the themes are adorable.

  4. I love the Pusheen box as well and I’m 51!❤️💕

    • Ohhhh yes, Penny, we are big Pusheen fans over here as well!

  5. A big upvote from me for the Pusheen Box. I bought it for my 9 year old daughter. Size ‘small’ yielded clothing that would fit a 12 year old perfectly, although my girl loves things to be super-roomy and comfortable, so the small size turned out to be perfect for her. She and I would be doing jumping high-fives whenever the adorable Pusheen Box would arrive! Every item found a use, although we would have preferred a Pusheen plush in each box, rather than the vinyl figure that makes an appearance every quarter. Can not recommend this box highly enough. In every delivery, all items were included, perfectly intact and great quality. The range of items was pretty inspired, too. My daughter is going to ask me to resubscribe for her 10th birthday. And even though I pretend that it is just for my daughter, I happily smile when I walk past our Pusheen calendar, photo holder, garland, plushes and key holder on my way to fetching a fantastic Pusheen tumbler for my drink. Pusheen forever x

    • Pusheen for the win! Month after month, I swear everyone is so astounded at how much use they get out of the items. Such a great one. So glad you and your daughter are happy with it!
