April 2017

Happy April! 

Spring has sprung and this months box was full of animal cuteness! One of my favorite parts of spring is watching the local wild animals come out of hiding. My favorites are rabbits and turkeys!

We had 12 items this month. Let’s see what they were!

  • Owl Plush (With Bunny Ears)  – Four colors were available of these adorable spring owl plush! Green, blue, purple and pink. Which did you get?

  • Dodotto Tsubupyon DIY Candy –  This is a fun little DIY candy with foamy candy, jelly dots made with the adorable squid/octopus dropper, and sprinkles! Boxes came with either Cider (blue) or Grape (pinkish) flavor.
  • Gudetama Sticker with Gum –  Mainly these came for the sake of the Gudetama sticker. He’s so cute, and many mornings we relate to his lazy ways. Did you like the included gum? Japanese gum tends to be different in texture than Western gum that we’ve tried.
  • Chocolate Umaibo – These corn puffed snacks come in all sorts of interesting flavors, including Teriyaki and Hamburger. But we didn’t want to weird anyone out too much, so we sent the simple chocolate coated version!

  • Bear Notebook – An adorable Bear themed notebook to fit in your purse, pocket or backpack. Great for jotting down notes, or doodling in when you’re bored.
  • Plush Bunny Pin – What will you attach this adorable bunny pin to? Your backpack? Purse? Jacket? Or maybe you have a special little place just for adorable pins?
  • Cat Pencil Sharperner – These sharpers came in a variety of colors and each has two holes for sharpening various sizes of pencils.
  • Colored Pencil Lip Balm – The cold winter weather can cause skin problems and dry lips, as you work into springing anew with the plants and animals, take care of yourself too with this fun lip balm. ♥
  • Animal Face Sticky Notes – These adorable pads have colored sticky notes inside.
  • Animal Ruler – Rulers seem to like to disappear from me, and often when ordering things from overseas it’s really nice to have a simple little ruler that uses centimeters solely!
  • Rilakkuma Pen – The most relaxed bear ever. Whew! We love Rilakkuma.
  • Spring Envelopes – Notes are so much more fun to get in pretty envelopes don’t you think? Do you have any penpals? I like to make penpals with people in different countries as it helps me learn about the world in a more personal way.

Thank you so much for all your patience while we experienced shipping delays with Customs in California again as well as a package going missing. We will continue to work hard to not let lateness happen, but unfortunately some things our out of our control. We’ll do everything we can to try and anticipate things like this better in the future.

 

January 2017’s Box

Our 13th box! We hit the one year mark and that’s awesome! We will continue to work towards making The CuteBox awesome!

One of our subscribers early on requested Moomin items. We had a Moomin item before, but kept the request in mind for future boxes. Hello Kitty is also highly requested. So she’ll make an appearance again next month!

Moomin’s got super popular in Japan in the 1990’s. The cartoon and plush are based on a Finnish comic!

1.) Moomin Hand Towel – A variety of cute Moomin designed hand towels bring some nostalgic cuteness this month.

2.) Moomin Die Cut Notebook –  Little notebooks sure beat writing on whatever piece of scrap paper you can find in your purse/pocket. The various Moomin characters graced these adorable notebooks.

Ramune is an iconic Japanese soda. Do you know it? It comes usually in glass bottles with a marble stopper than you press in using a plunger. These gummies from Kasugai are Ramune flavor, and like most Kasugai gummies have a bit of a twinge that could be considered an acquired taste. The little Rilakkuma Cafe gums are Ramune flavor as well. Which do you prefer?

3.) Rilakkuma Soda Gum Ramune flavored bubble gum with cute Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma wrappers.
+ Kasugai Ramune Gummy – Do you like Kasugai’s take on Ramune flavored candy? I love the blue color!

The packages on the chocolates are just so pretty! Don’t you think? These adorable chocolates are from the show Maho Girls PreCure. Part of the Pretty Cure (Princess Pretty Cure) franchise.

4.) Princess Pretty Cure Chocolates – Each box comes with five individually wrapped chocolates. You might get one crispy chocolate, which is shaped like a heart. The other designs include the magical girls, Mofurun the girls’ transformation device teddy bear, or other cute show related shapes.

5.) Bonjour Rilakkuma Metal Strap – Rilakkuma and friends took a trip to France with these adorable little metal straps! Which character do you love most?

Gudetama is a lazy egg that has been in the box a few times. He speaks to us on our lazy days, as he’s the lazy egg! He’s one of Sanrio’s newer characters. Have you heard the silly noise he makes?

6.) Gudetama Socks – Keep your toes warm with these adorable Gudetama socks.
7.) Gudetama Pen – We love cute pens, and just can’t get enough of this Gudetama one. I keep one in my purse for writing down shopping lists before I rush out the door to the store.

8.) Animal Number Erasers – These cute shaped erasers are animals, and numbers at the same time! What numbers do you see above? There are two sets that went out, even and odd numbers! As you can tell, the odd number set is above. ♥

9.) Alpaca and Sheep Stickers – A Kawaii mixed sticker set with Alpacas and Sheep! Oh, and some chicks too. ♥ The adorable little chicks are probably my favorite. :

10.) Kawaii Star +Pearly Bracelet (handmade) – We had these bracelets handmade for our subscribers this month after getting some cute ones for Christmas and falling in love. We hope you love the one that came your way too. ♥ We made sure they were sized to fit okay on adults too. 11.) Domo-kun Plush – Do you know who Domo-kun is? He’s the official mascot of Japan’s public broadcaster NHK. He appears in 30 second stop-motion sketches during shows. He’s popular not only in Japan, and actually have 5 video games in the Nintendo DSi shop! Go Domo!

We hope you enjoyed our 13th box, and look forward to another year of fantastic cuteness!

Don’t forget that starting March 2017’s box, we will have a DIY candy kit in every box!
