YumeTwins – Japanese Kawaii October 2023

October means autumn, and more importantly, one of the most fun holidays – Halloween! And YumeTwins is celebrating with the Kawaii Halloween Carnival box of cute and kawaii items from Japan.

The menu booklet tells you about the items in the box. There’s also a ton of cool information with amazing pictures telling you all about Halloween in Japan. It’s a holiday that seems to have really taken off, and you can read about some of the fun new Halloween traditions and celebrations that have developed in Japan, especially with costumes, food, and events.

This is a Kuromi Face Pouch. Kuromi is part of the My Melody universe, and something of a rival to My Melody. her strong colours are a great match for the  Halloween spirit. The pouch has a hanging loop for you bag, and there is a zip compartment on the top. On the back is a little pari of bat wings, for some extra Halloween cuteness.

Kuromi features again in this Kuromi Glow In The Dark Bath Bomb. The bomb itself doesn’t actually glow, but inside is an adorable little Kuromi figure than does light of in different colours. It’s really cute, looks great in the dark and perfect for adding a bit of disco vibe to bath time!

This little container is a Mini Kirby Basket. It’s a handy little thing for keeping small items, such as stationery or cosmetics. The little handles give it a very cute vibe like a shopping basket.

The Sumikko Gurashi Spa Hair Band is great for keeping your hair out of your face when washing or using a face mask. it features one of the adorable little characters from Sumikko Gurashi, and made from microfibre, it’s very gentle on the skin and hair.

Finally is a mystery item. This is Poteusa Loppy Bunny plush. He’s a little bunny character that comes in lots of different variations. This one is wearing a little teddy bear onesie costume, rather like a Halloween costume!

Our score: 7.6/ 10

Kuroni does bring a little Halloween vibe to this month's box, but overall I'm not sure it's that heavy on the spooky theme. I'm not a big fan of mystery items, because they're not been specifically chosen, and while the plush is nice, I think I would have preferred something else rather than another plush. The bath bomb is excellent, and the pouch is cute, but it doesn't feel so much like there's a really standout item or a cohesive theme, as the bath bomb is single use only. The items are nice individually, but I think would have really liked to have seen something with a bit more emphasis on the kawaii-spooky Halloween thing, especially as Halloween in Japan looks so fun in the booklet!
