YumeTwins – Japanese Kawaii May 2020

YumeTwins is a monthly box of Japanese kawaii products from Tokyo. It is part of the TokyoTreat subscription box group which also includes TokyoTreat and nomakenolife.Each box contains 5 kawaii items including plushies and lifestyle goods plus premium anime brands.

They have one-, three-, six-, and 12-month subscriptions costing $35.00, $33.50, $32.00, and $31.50 per month respectively (from around £25).

YumeTwins have chosen a cracker of a theme for this month: Ghibli’s Delivery Service.

Studio Ghibli has produced some of the most magical animated movies ever, including the famous My Neighbor Totoro, so I can’t wait to see what lovely characters are going to be featured!

This month’s featured item is a Ghibli 2-piece lunchbox. It comes in one of two designs, Totoro or Jiji the cat. As you can see, I’ve got Totoro.

The menu booklet gives you a fun suggestion to make character food!

The box itself if a bento box design, which is very common in Japan, It has separate compartments, cutlery, and it all clips together with the lid. Of course it’s reuseable, so you can use it again and again withouth wasting packaging.

If you’ve every wanted to try the traditional Japanese art of origami, this Ghibli Origami Set is the perfect way to start! There are two options, Totoro or Kiki’s Delivery Service, which i have here.

You get pieces of decorated paper to make in to a variety of folded items, and there are full instructions in English, so you don’t have to worry about making a mistake in translation!

Jigsaw puzzles are very soothing, and this cute Ghibli 150 piece puzzles features a variety of scenes from Ghibli movies. Here is Totoro and Mini Totoro running along clutching their flowers. This is such a cute picture!

This Totoro Tumbler is a great item to pair with your bento box! It’s made from plastic with a reusable straw, and is even safe in the dishwasher! As the lid fits tightly it would even be useful to have in the car or on a picnic.

The final accessory for a kawaii meal is these cute Kiki’s Delivery Service Chopsticks. This is one of three different designs featuring characters from the movie, and they have the traditional Japanese rounded shape with grooves on the end to hold food securely.

 

Our score: 9.4/ 10

This is a gorgeous theme, and the items hang together beautifully! Three give you the perfect lunch on the go set, plus two fun creative and hobby items. Every kawaii fan will be familiar with the Ghibli movies, and of course Totoro is one of the most beloved characters. What a lovely and well thought out items, especially as picnic season is upon us!
