This week we received a box of delights from Asia. Kawaii Box is a subscription based service where you receive a monthly box of assorted Kawaii items – which basically means ‘cute’.
While some brands will be recognisable (previous boxes have included Hello Kitty and Totoro for instance) for the most part these products from Japan and Korea will be new to most westerners.
The monthly boxes are crammed with random cute stuff from Asia, ranging from sweets to stickers and accessories.
It’s always fun receiving parcels, especially if you don’t know what’s inside. When our slightly battered box arrived from Singapore, it was with great anticipation that we opened it…
So, as promised, here’s a more detailed look of what was in the box:
Kracie DIY Chain Candy
Squishy Doughnut Mirror
Kawaii Toast Coaster
Pastel Pearl Bracelet
Korean Glitter Glue Set
Mushroom Mini Plush
Cute Pencil Set
Flake Seal Stickers
So there you have it. A nice little collection of pop culture curios and oddities from the east. We enjoyed getting this Kawaii Box, and I can imagine it would be fun to get one of these each month – a regular little box of surprises.
It may all seem rather pink and pastel. As I’ve said before, I don’t object to the colour pink – just how it’s used to market things to girls, and there is nothing in the Kawaii Box offering to indicate that these items are for girls only. They’re for people who want a bit of cute in their lives. And why not.
