YumeTwins – Japanese Kawaii December 2023

Christmas in Japan is unique, and while it’s not a traditional holiday, the Japanese have taken it into their hearts.

So this month YumeTwins is giving us a box of Kawaii Christmas Treasures!

The menu booklet tells you all about the items inside, as well as all kinds of fun things about winter and Christmas in Japan. There’s even a Japanese version of Christmas cake!

This month’s plush is a Sanrio Rainbow Pouch Plushie. There’s either Cinnamoroll, or as I have here, My Melody. It has a cute rainbow design, and there’s a tiny zip pouch in the back. There’s also a hanging loop so you can hang it from your heys or bag as a cute accessory.

This is another YumeTwins exclusive item, a YumeTwins Jewellery Box. It’s a very compact size, which would make it perfect for travel. It zips safely closed, and there are compartments for rings, earrings, and whatever else you’d like! The design is the original YumeTwins graphics, with the little cat mascot at the top.

There’s nothing like a hot bath in the cold weather, and this cute Donut Bath Bomb is a very cute addition. It comes is a variety of fruity scents, I’ve got strawberry here. And it really does look most realistic!

On the right is a Mystery Item. I had to do a little detective work to figure out what it was, but it’s Chairoikoguma, a friend of the kawaii bear character Rilakkuma, and it’s called a Fresh Milk Plush. He also has a little hanging loop.

Finally, there’s a YumeTwins Gift Bag. It’s got the YumeTwins mascot NyanNyan on the front, and it’s made from a type of plastic fabric. There’s a ribbon attached so it can be tied up.

Our score: 7.0/ 10

Given the name of the box, I was really hoping for something Christmassy this month! I know Christmas isn't a Japanese holiday, but it's been adopted as part of the winter festivities, and there are many Christmas-themed kawaii items out there. I understand the idea of Christmas presents, but a subscription box is like presents every month, so it would be nice to have this one stand out. YumeTwins is usually superb at themed boxes, there have been some stunning ones in the past, but I don't think it's the case here. There's the gift bag, but it's not really a high-quality item. The plush is very cute, and I love the bath bomb, but there's a mystery item again, and I really don't like those much, it's just too random. The jewellery box is actually pretty useful, especially for travel, but it would have been nice to have one from one of the kawaii franchises. While I do like the things in the box, there's nothing special or seasonal about it. I'm sure they'll come back strong in the new year, as generally YumeTwins is great for any kawaii addiction!
