Kawaii Box October 2015

I’ve recently received the Kawaii Box from October and would like to show you all the cute items that I found inside. With the monthly Kawaii Box subscription you’ll receive 10-12 hand-picked kawaii items from Japan and Korea at home. Please do read (or scroll) on to the end, because this post also includes a giveaway!

Kawaii Box October 2015

I’ve done a review before of the Kawaii Box from August 2014 and noticed a few differences. The white package is now adorned with a bow print and includes a handy card with the contents of the box.

Upon opening the box I was greeted by the cutest Flan Dakigurumi plush, which also became my most favorite item.

Upon closer inspection it turns out to be a pen pouch. The bunny can hold up to 5 pens because it’s a little fat padded. Hop over to Blippo if you need this item in your life (I know you do ;)).
The lollipop pen writes in dark blue ink and is perfect for quick notes, the handle is probably a bit too thin to use comfortably for a long time.

Oh yes: an unchi-kun (lucky poo) lollipop! I’ll save it for a friend who might be even more fascinated with this character than I am.

The other candy item in this month’s box is a pack of Meiji DIY Gummy Sushi. I’ll let you know on Instagram how they turned out and what they taste like.

The stationery items that I received are a set of 5 pattern envelopes (can also be used as a gift wrap for money or coupons), a sheet of puffy dogs & cats stickers and a stamp set.

The stamp set comes with 2 pattern rollers and 3 small stamps with animals and messages such as OK, study and very good. So I think this set would be great for teachers as well.

Because you can never have enough bling, Blippo made sure to include shiny deco stickers and heart shaped nail flakes. I’ll probably use them both to decorate jewelry.

The box also came with two tiny pouches that can hold money or small knick knacks, it’s hard to resist this emoji cat pouch (・ω・)ノ☆

In my opinion the quality of the items has gone up compared to when Kawaii Box just started. The price for a Kawaii Box is 18.90 so I think you really get value for your money. I can put most of the items to good use and the ones that stood out to me are the Flan bunny pouch, the lollipop pen and the envelopes.

Why You Need to Play Neko Atsume

I might be a bit late to the game (pun intended), but the English version of Neko Atsume has certainly got me addicted. Neko Atsume has been very popular in Japan and is now taking the rest of the world by storm.

The gameplay is pretty straightforward: you ‘buy’ goodies such as toys, cushions and food to lure cats into your yard. Because feline creatures tend to be cautious, you’d best close the app and wait a bit. When you return to the game you’ll hopefully see cats in your yard. Now it’s time to look up their Catbook profiles or to take some pictures. Or simply sit back and enjoy the cats. It’s possible that the visiting cats have already gone home, but they’ll always leave fish to say thanks. With those fish you get to buy new goodies.

Don’t let the pixelated game-graphics scare you off, trust me you’ll get to love them. And the simple animations of the cats are very cute. It’s a bit like Pokemon: you’ve gotta catch them all. The best thing is that you get to have new feline friends without the shedding hair and smelly poo ;)

My yard is still super simple,with cheap goodies.

Meet my new bestie: Tubbs. He’s like a super sized version of Catootje.

Merchandise from Neko Atsume has been popping up at Strapya World, jbox and AmiAmi. I’d love to get my hands on the above capsule toy set, but it seems to be either sold out or very expensive.
