Hello, beautiful family! I have some very exciting news today. I finally got my February Kawaii Box!

For those of you who have never heard of it before, Kawaii Box is a monthly mystery box of exclusively kawaii products. Basically, my most wild dream coming true. ♥

And since this is my first ever Kawaii Box, I wanted to tell you guys all about it, from the unboxing to the contents of the box. *-*

Also a little surprise for you! At the end of the post, you can enter a giveaway for a chance to win a Kawaii Box yourself! How cool is that?

But we will get to that later, first the unboxing!

The Shipping

I got an e-mail from the team on January 28th saying that my box was shipped. Yay! They did say on the website and the e-mail that it usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive, but some places like the UK and Canada it can take up to 4 weeks. And it did take almost 4 weeks. 3 weeks and 4 days to be exact, on February 22nd (not like I was counting the days like a puppy at the door or anything like that…).

I have to add that on that day I was kind of starting to panic because I had one week before moving and I was pretty sure that with my luck, the box would not arrive in time, and I am sooo glad this time I was a little luckier. ♥

The Box

The box itself is gorgeous. It’s soo pretty and kawaii, I really love their logo and the colours match so well!

I was actually a bit surprised by the size of the box. It’s smaller than I thought but they can fit so much in there, you can see they put a lot of love into the packing. *-*

That being said, the outside of the box was a little torn and beat up when I got it. It almost looks as if someone opened the box and closed it again.

 

Kawaii Box

Such a Kawaii package! But such an ugly corner x.x

 

And it was obvious that it was not a problem with the packing itself since the inside was perfect and tidy, so I am assuming that during the shipping it was loose and hitting things around.

But, since nothing was damaged, I was still very happy and excited about my box! And the next part was finding out what beautiful things I would get. ♥

The Products

There were a lot of things in my Kawaii Box, and I’ll talk a little bit about everything, with pictures!

Pastel Candy Mechanical Pencil

 

Candy Mechanical Pencil

A sweet princess like me needs a sweet pencil like this!

 

This is my new favourite pencil, no exaggeration. It is so sweet, light, feels good to write with, and despite what I originally thought, the candy does not get in the way of your writing.

I fell in love instantly by how kawaii this mechanical pencil looks, but I admit I kind of feared the little candy would keep bumping into my hand or weighting one side or the other, but it didn’t! And I am genuinely very excited about that.

I play Dungeons and Dragons with my friends every Monday, and this pencil is going to be one of those I will never let anyone touch, you know what I mean? *-*

Dreamland Pastel Stickers (3D Mermaid)

 

Mermaid Stickers

I love mermaids. I love stickers. I love pastel colours. Does it get any better?

 

I am one of those people who loves stickers, kind of collects them, but never actually uses them anywhere. And I can feel that these will stay with me for a very long time. These stickers are so pretty.

The colours are just adorable, and all the little fishies, sea horses and shells? So kawaii. Also, they are soft and puffy and it feels nice to press them, as silly as that may sound.

Sprinkle Heart Squishy Charm

 

Sprinkle Squishy

It was about time for a new Squishy friend! Too bad he will get bald pretty soon :X

 

I looooove squishies, as you probably remember from my post about them. So I was very excited when I saw I got one.

It is adorable and looks like a little dessert, with the sprinkles and all. But I must say I was a little disappointed with the quality of this one.

Before even taking it off the plastic, the sprinkles already started to come out, and the squishy itself was sort of dirty? You can see both of those things on the picture.

But besides that issue, it is still a very kawaii squishy. It smells very good, and after I give it a good wash, this squishy will be a wonderful charm for my phone for a very long time, even when all the sprinkles are gone. ^^

Heart Princess Jewelry Box

 

Jewelry Box

Mirror, Mirror on the hand, who is the Kawaiiest of the land?

 

Okay, this one is absolutely gorgeous. It looks so precious and sweet, fit for a princess. It’s small and delicate, with a little mirror inside that is surprisingly good.

This jewelry box is very fragile. The plastic is so thin and light that I was even a little scared of handling it. I’ll not be moving it a lot since it will stay in my dresser holding my jewelry so it will not be much of an issue. But it is really thin and looks somewhat breakable. Apart from the mirror, as I said before.

Sanrio Characters Melamine Plate

 

Hello Kitty Plate

Fun size kawaii plate for my fun size kawaii snacks!

 

One of the things I was most excited about this month’s box is that it would have Sanrio products in it, and I love Sanrio characters with all of my heart.

This is a special Hello Kitty plate series for her 40th year anniversary! On this one, she is with her sister Mimmy, adorable with matching outfits and all. It looks very very cute and it’s so precious and small.

My boyfriend thought it was a cat plate before I explained it to him, because it’s so tiny and kawaii, and he is a silly man. It’s actually the perfect size for my snacks, like baby carrots and chicken nuggets, and I feel even more kawaii while I eat them!

Heart Shaped Fantasy Keychain

 

Heart Keychain

Give me ALL OF THE GLITTER!!

 

I got a new key chain for my new house and this is so perfect! I am the type of person that loses her keys very easily, so I usually get very big key chains that won’t let me miss them even if I try.

These are so pretty and I can see myself wasting my time a little playing with it. I love watching the glitter inside when I shake it, and it is kind of soothing.

I am a little apprehensive of the tiny glitter bottles since they actually open quite easily. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to glue the lid so it never opens again or if I’ll take them out, because they would be perfect for my next DIY project. ♥

Regardless of what I’ll do with the mini bottles, the key chain itself is so pretty, very good quality, and I’m just waiting for my new keys so I can start using them. *-*

Fluffy Sanrio Characters Socks

 

Pompompurin Socks

There are honestly no better socks in the world. Or at least in my house. For real.

 

I’ll just start saying that these are the best socks I have ever had in my life, for real. They are so kawaii and soft, I had to put them on as soon as I took them off the box and honestly, now I only take them off to shower and wash them.

Apart from the fact that it is a Pompompurin sock and like I said, I love Sanrio Characters, I was very surprised by the quality of these socks. In my opinion, it is the best product from this box and I am so glad that I got them, really.

My boyfriend loved them as well and said I look adorable with them! So there is also that. ^^

Kawaii Neko Travel Tag Case

 

Neko Travel Tag

Who wouldn’t want to bring such a cutie around the world with them? He is so kawaii. ♥

 

I admit I was a little confused by this one. I wasn’t exactly sure what it was until I looked at the little guide they sent. Which turned out to be really fun, with me and my babe playing with it trying to guess what it was.

Part of the “problem” with me not knowing what it was is because the only other travel tag I ever saw was made of soft plastic and so bad I didn’t even remember I had one.

This one is solid stuff. It’s very high quality and the little kitty is super adorable. My boyfriend is planning on travelling soon, so this came in such good timing. 🙂

Sakupan Panda Strawberry Chocolate Biscuits

 

Sakupan Panda Biscuit

Imagine sharing a treat with a unicorn on top of a rainbow, while watching panda shapes in the clouds. That’s how tasty these are.

 

Just look at that little face! These pandas are almost too cute to eat, I swear! But as soon as you open the package they smell so delicious that you give up on that idea pretty quickly. And I gotta say, that’s so worth it.

These biscuits are simply divine. They are covered with strawberry chocolate and each biscuit has a different funny face. It tastes almost like strawberry flavoured yogurt, but sweeter. It’s pretty hard to describe but very, very tasty. Trust me.

You can probably guess, but I was all out of biscuits in less than 5 minutes. They are just so delicious, oh my God. I would eat them every day if I could, really.

DIY Beads Bracelet Making Kit

 

DIY Beads Bracelet

Homemade Kawaii bracelets!! Such cute possibilities. ♥

 

This piece was part of the “Mystery Gift” they started including on the Kawaii Box this month. Every box gets one random item from them, different from all the other boxes, pretty cool, right? I really liked the idea.

That being said, I do feel like this was the least interesting one of them all, but it was still a lot of fun! I haven’t made a bracelet from a kit like this in such a long time, and it was so nice to play with something like that again, only just a little too silly.

My only problem was that some beads didn’t have their holes cut out very properly. I had to finish opening up most of the holes so I could use the beads, but in the end, I was really happy with my bracelet! I have two other “pearl” bracelets, and this one is the prettiest, by far.

The Quality

Even if there were some low-quality products the majority of the items were very high-quality, and I admit I was surprised at how useful they can be.

I was expecting kawaii items, of course, but it’s good to know that I can actually use the things I am getting. And I am always happy to use any excuse possible to change my everyday items for kawaii ones, so I was very happy with my box. *-*

I was just a tiny bit sad that I didn’t get a stuffed animal, but that’s really just because I am a little crazy sick about stuffies love them so much, but there is always the next ones, right?

And I truly do recommend you get at least one box for yourself, and hopefully, I can help with that! ^^

I’ve heard of them and I’ve shopped on their parent site Blippo before. My favourite item in this box were the Popompurin socks, I think.

Hi Barbara, I absolutely love this! I’ve never heard of Kawaii box before, but I like all the things you received in the mystery box. I have a niece that’s going to be 10 this summer and i’m wondering if a 6 month subscription would be a good birthday present. She loves things like this and all the gifts you unboxed look like things she would like. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Barbara Carrasco

    Hi, Jen! That is a wonderful gift idea. If she is into girly and kawaii stuff, she will love the box!

I have never heard of Kawaii before, but this would be perfect for my youngest daughter who will be turning 18 soon. She loves all the Japanese characters and such. I wanted to mention that I remember when Hello Kitty Came out and seeing that it was 40 years ago, I feel very old. Thank you for the info as I may look more into a subscription when she goes off to college.

Mar 04.2019 | 08:40 pm

    Barbara Carrasco

    Hey, Colleen! I’m sure your daughter will love the box. 🙂
    Tell her to participate in the giveaway too. That way she might get one for free before the subscription 😉
    I remember Hello Kitty always being there my whole life, but she was around for a while already. I can only imagine what it feels like to see her being created! But don’t feel old.
    Age is just a number, what matters is that we never stop doing and being what we love. ^^

    Thank you so much for your comment, Colleen. Have a wonderful week! 😀
