Let’s take a closer look at everything!
Korilakkuma Valentine’s Plushie
“Welcome the Valentine season with the most laid-back bears around!”
Loving this cute Korilakkuma plushie! Korilakkuma is holding a pink heart that is also a pocket, perfect for hiding a small gift. The plushie is super soft and cuddly. There is a chain included for easy attachment to bags. Subscribers may receive either this or a Rilakkuma plushie holding a red heart.
Sumikko Gurashi Mug & Tea Towel Set
“Decorated with the lovable Sumikko Gurashi friends, this teatime set is just right for indulging in some me-time or a cozy convo with your bestie!”
This mug and towel set is so cute! I love anything featuring the Sumikko Gurashi characters, and this set is no exception. The mug is a little on the small side for me, but I am still happy to add it to my mug collection. I think the towel will also be perfect as a face towel.
Sanrio Warm ‘N Fluffy Pastel Socks
“Show your feet some love with these extra soft socks from Sanrio! The fluffy material keeps toes nice and warm, while the stretchy elasticity ensures all-day breathability. Your feet will be thankful whether you’re out and about or spending a relaxing day at home. What’s not to love?”
Subscribers will receive 1 of 6 possible designs. I got the pair featuring Kuromi, My Melody’s rival. I am loving her pink dress and skull! These socks are so soft and fluffy, perfect to keep my feet warm during these cold winter nights.
Magical Heart Tin
“What’s your favorite ‘magical girl’ series? Relive the wonderful memories each day with this jewel-like heart tin!”
At first glance this is not as exciting as the other items, but I am loving how useful this tin is! I have it on my desk holding a bunch of pins and paper clips right now. The tin design reminds me so much of Sailor Moon. This tin will also be perfect to hold your Valentine’s Day gift!
Sanrio XL Pouch
“Who doesn’t love staying organized? That’s exactly what you’ll be able to do with this item! Easily keep your favorite makeup, large stationery, or other often utilized items in one place, and find exactly what you’re searching for in a snap! Once you’re finished, zip it right up and you’ll be good to go!”
Last and definitely not least, is this super cute pouch. There are 3 available designs subscribers could get in their box, I am so excited to get the Gudetama one! The lazy egg is my favorite Sanrio character, and I am so happy to have this pouch join my collection of Gudetama merch. The pouch is really spacious, and made with a easy to clean and durable vinyl material.
YumeTwins Review February 2021 – Final Thoughts
This month’s YumeTwins box lives up to all my kawaii expectations! I loved how the items fit so well with the Valentine’s Day theme. My favorite item is the Gudetama pouch, but I may be a little biased because I love the character so much. As usual, I love the plushie, and appreciate how practical the items are. The socks, mug and towel set, and tin are already being put to good use in my home. If you are someone who loves kawaii things and popular Japanese characters, this subscription is really worth a try.
