Into Kawaii Stuff? Get A YumeTwins Subscription Box!

"It's so kawaii!" my daughter started shrieking when she was 9.

I had no idea what she was talking about.

"It's so kawaii!" she yelled at her stuffed animals.

"It's so kawaii!" she shouted when her mini burgers were served at a restaurant. (The waiter had a "WTF" expression on his face.)

"It's so kawaii!" she bellowed at a dress in Target.

"Natalie," I finally said. "What's kawaii?"

She stared at me as though I were the odd one. "It means cute in Japanese." There are animals who are kawaii too. They have wide black eyes. Natalie said this shirt was kawaii.






When I heard about the YumeTwins subscription box, I knew I had to try it. Maybe I'd even be cool for a minute in my daughter's eyes. When the box arrived, I told Natalie that there would be kawaii items inside.

"WHAT?" she screamed, making my ears ring. She's one of those loud girls who scream and bounce around when excited. I never understood those girls so naturally my daughter is one.




As she opened the box, she yelled, "I already know I love everything!"




So here's what she got:


A stuffed porcupine, which made her go, "OOOOOOO! I'm calling you Bun Bun!" It's proper name is Shinada Easter Bunny Nature. I've no idea how to pronounce Shinada.




A magnet, which is now on our fridge:




A bento box, complete with chopsticks, which Natalie has been learning to use:





A cup, which made Natalie shriek, "It's GUDETAMA!" and I was like, "Bless you," and she went, "NO! That's what it's CALLED!"




What? Huh?


She also got a Gudetama pen, and the magnet up above is apparently Gudetama too.





I guess the character is Gudetama? It's like a blobby eggy thing? I don't understand.




Look, I don't get this kawaii stuff. But if you have someone in your life that gets and loves it like my kid, pick up this box. It's not that expensive either. It's $29.99 a month, or if you do a 6 month subscription it's $28.33. It's free shipping worldwide, and the items in the box seem like great quality. My daughter has been loving on that Shinada toy (Bun Bun, remember?), and it's still in good shape. She's been using the Gudetama cup, and there's not a chip on it. (She showed it off to all her friends, who were like, "Where did you get that GUDETAMA cup?" and they started shrieking and my husband was like, "What the hell is going on out there?")



If you want a box, check out the YumeTwins website. And no, this isn't a sponsored post. I paid for the box, and I'll probably pay for others, because my daughter gets so excited and for a brief second, she does think I'm cool.




Even if I did think she was sneezing when she said Gudetama.
