Yume Twins Box for June, 2017
This month's Yume Twins box celebrates Yume Twins first birthday! To say thank you to their subscribers, Yume Twins have included a very large Shinada plush. A monthly Yume Twins box will cost about $42 NZD, however shipping is free worldwide. Below are the five items I received in the June box.
1. Shinada Baby Nature Large Plush Out of the 14 different animal plushies, I got a baby monkey though I would have loved to have got the baby owl instead. These plushies are made by Shinada, a big name company in Japan who create high quality plushies.
This little monkey is incredibly soft and squishy but this plush is a bit too childish for me but he's perfect to gift to a baby or toddler!
2. Kawaii Character Mini-Bowl Out of the 8 cute soup bowl designs I got this grumpy bear bowl! It's a great size, and is made with a durable melamine material to ensure that they can't break. Only downside to getting this bowl was that there was quite a large sticker on the side that took a while to get off and it still left some sticky residue.
Here's a close-up of my grumpy bear from The Bear's School, created by Bandai.
3. Bananyan Mini-Mascot This bean filled half cat, half banana mini-mascot is soft and makes for a cute addition to my collection. They also have weights in them so that they can stand upright.
4. Sumikko Gurashi Large Rubber Clip Out of the four different designed paper clips I could have received, I got Tonkatsu from the Sumikko Gurashi family. Tonkatsu translates to 'pork cutlet'! On the back of the packaging there is also a San-X licensed sticker which I love to see on any subscription box item.
5. Sumikko Gurashi Deco Latte Sheets The second Sumikko Gurashi item in this month's box is a pack of latte deco sheets which I haven't seen before so it's a really cool item to get in a box and each packet includes ten different sheets of deco art!
These latte sheets are made from edible soluble gelatin and I had mine with a cup of green tea latte.
Verdict: Yume Twins have delivered a birthday box with a handful of high quality items! There was no particular item that was a major highlight and my only criticism for this month's box would be the Shinada plush and it was a bit too childish for my liking.
