YumeTwins is a kawaii goods box shipped worldwide from Tokyo! Each box includes 6 to 8 cute licensed items from popular Japanese brands. They include a variety of things, like plushies, home goods, stationary, and squishies. They focus on curating a selection of unique and quality goods around a monthly theme.
The theme for November 2018 is “Twinkling Transformation.” It’s centered around kawaii goodies that transform themselves or transform your surroundings. The included booklet and online zine describe the contents of the box, contests, cultural “Streaks,” for subscribers of that you can check out at their new customer portal. This month’s box has 6 cute items.
Sailor Moon Cleaner Cloth
The packaging on this cloth is really cute! There are five different designs for each Sailor Scout, which is designed to look like the skirt on their outfit. The cloth itself is a circle shape and has a Sailor Moon pattern on it. It’s soft and works great on my glasses.
Kawaii Changing Pouch
This is one of the items they’ve been teasing a lot on social media. It’s a zipper pouch with a sequin design that changes when you push your hand across it. There are 6 different designs, including Sanrio, San-X and Doraemon characters. I got a My Melody pattern. (I don’t really care for My Melody, and I always seem to get her!) The pouch is thin and long—it would fit pens, makeup brushes, or similar items well. The changing effect it cool, but it does take some effort to move the sequins. I hope it holds up!
Costume Pet Plushie
This month’s plushie is a cat or dog dress in a costume with a hood that you can take on and off. There are 10 different possibilities you can receive. I got a bulldog in a pink bunny costume. The plushie is very soft and well made. I wish I could’ve gotten a cat, but the dog is cute too.
Sumikko Gurashi Peg Set
These little wooden clips are decorated with Summiko Gurashi characters. My set is all the Neko (cat) character, who is one of my favorites! I like the natural wood, and they’re a good size for photos and notes.
Sheep Microfiber Cleaner
This little sheep is made of microfiber and contains bamboo charcoal to help deodorize any unpleasant smells. I can see this being useful for smaller surfaces, like a work desk. The booklet suggests hanging it in your car, which is also a good idea. I love the little happy face on the sheep!
Kawaii Mini Mini Memo
The last item is a small memo pad that features one of three characters: Mochi Mochi Panda, Yeast Ken, or Animal Life. I got the Yeast Ken version, which is all little dogs and bread! It’s super cute! My memo pad has two different paper designs. I love getting kawaii memo pads! This one is small enough to slip into your pocket or purse.
Overall, I enjoyed this month’s box. I liked the Sumikko Gurashi Peg Set, Kawaii Mini Mini Memo, and the Sailor Moon Cleaner Cloth. However, I feel like most of the value of this month’s box is from the Kawaii Changing Pouch and the Costume Pet Plushie, and for both of them I didn’t get designs I really liked. So, I think that’s why I’m little less excited about this month as a whole. It’s the luck of the draw, right? I’d be curious if they’d ever do a plan where you can select the characters you like, even for an additional fee.
