YumeTwins Review January 2017
YumeTwins is a monthly subscription box service from Tokyo Treat that delivers high-quality, kawaii Japanese items straight from Tokyo to your doorstep! It centers around the “yume kawaii” culture which is a new kawaii movement recently emerged in Japan. Yume kawaii isn’t just kawaii – it’s a mixture of cuteness, fairytales and, importantly, a touch of darkness! They kindly sent us this box for review.
YumeTwins not only provides an amazing and colourful box sent directly from Japan full of your kawaii favourites, they also provide a great community online for their followers. This month a photo contest has been launched to encourage YumeTwins subscribers to post a photo with themselves and their Sailor Moon doll showcasing how happy they are with this month’s delivery! I’m big on community and definitely believe online community is here to stay.
Each box features a small catalog showcasing what you received in your box as well as this months photo challenge and possible prizes. Each item received in your box is one of multiple options.
