YumeTwins Review May 2022
YumeTwins is a Japanese subscription full of kawaii or licensed character items from popular brands. Each box will contain cute plushies and squishies, stationery, bags and pouches, accessories, or daily practical goods straight from Japan.
They kindly sent us this box for review.
The YumeTwins subscription costs $37.50 per box on a monthly plan. There will still be cost savings for longer term prepaid subscriptions. Subscriptions on 3-, 6-, and 12-month prepaid plans will cost $35.50, $33.50, and $32.50 per box respectively. Shipping cost varies depending on the available shipping courier for each country.
Each monthly box will still include 5-7 items to give you an experience of Japanese culture through everything kawaii. The box promises to include stationery, household and lifestyle goods, and character items. YumeTwins will also include YumeTwins Originals (these will be items designed by the YumeTwins team) and YumeTwins exclusive collaborations with brands like Sanrio to the subscription. They will also be featuring single brand or character boxes.
The May YumeTwins theme is “Sakura Tea Party” in celebration of the cherry blossom season. This box combines the Japanese past times of cherry blossom viewing and tea ceremonies, inviting subscribers to join in the experience with good friends and food.
The first three items in the box are items you can use to host your own kawaii tea party, ranging from practical to downright cute. Let’s take a closer look at each of them!
YumeTwins Exclusive Pompompurin Sakura Latte Mug Plush Pouch
“The round and cuddly Pompompurin is a 3D latte art on this plush sakura latte! Instead of his usual yellow self he is the soft pink of the flowing cherry blossom petals in the wind.”
Love when an exclusive plush is included! This one is so cute and fitting for the cherry blossom season. The pouch can be used to store your tea party accompaniments like coffee, tea, cream or sugar. Don’t you wish that this was an actual cup of latte with Pompompurin latte foam art? According to the accompanying article, there is a Pompompurin cafe in Tokyo’s Harajuku district that serves food items like this. Definitely have to visit when I have the chance!
YumeTwins Original Cardcaptor Sakura Acrylic Stir Stick
“YumeTwins’ original Cardcaptor Sakura design on a unique item. Upgrade your drink anytime with a Cardcaptor Sakura stir stick made of acrylic!”
Such a useful item! I have been using this to stir my teas. Also more eco friendly than disposable stir sticks.
Mini Kawaii Ceramic Sakura Bowl
“High quality Japanese tableware made in Japan. The pale blue and pink hues are soft and warm. It creates a dreamy Japanese springtime atmosphere whenever and wherever you use it.”
The pink cherry blossom design is so pretty! Using this bowl adds a touch of spring to the meal. This bowl is the perfect size of sauces and dips. You can also use it as a decorative piece to store your everyday knick knacks with.
Hello Kitty Sakura Large Eco Tote Bag
“Out for a flower viewing trip or picnic? Take your Hello Kitty Large Eco Bag to carry all of your items, and once you are there flatten the bag out for a clean place to sit.”
This bag is huge! I have been using it to carry my groceries. The fabric is durable, and I love that it has a zipper to keep every thing safe. The design is super adorable, and there are little Hello Kittys hiding in the blossoms throughout. Can you spot all of them?
Hello Kitty Sakura Kimono Keychain Strap
“Hello Kitty is wearing a kawaii sakura print kimono and sakura petals instead of a bow, inspired by the spring flowers blooming throughout Japan.”
This is so pretty! I love the little gold details. You can attach this to keys, bags, or zippers.
The keychain and bag go perfectly with each other!
YumeTwins Review May 2022 – Final Thoughts
I absolutely loved this month’s YumeTwins box! The keychain strap and tote bag combo is my favourite – cute and super useful all at once. I also love the bowl and have been using that regularly. The stir stick is such a useful item to have around, and the Pompompurin pouch is such a cute addition to my collection. I think YumeTwins always puts such thought into making the product selections, and this month is no exception. Everything is so fitting with the cherry blossom tea party theme.
