YumeTwins Review October 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 got a makeover and I am loving it!! They have a new box, new colors, new product card and new website. I spent some time on their new site and it is fabulous. It’s bright and fun and easy to navigate. It has lots of information and lots of great images. I am impressed.
YumeTwins is here to give you an authentic Japanese culture experience and provide you with the best experience possible through everything kawaii. They venture out to find high quality plushies, cute kawaii stationery, squishies and other surprises and deliver them in a super kawaii box! Best of all, shipping is free worldwide!
Each YumeTwins box is completely unique, ensuring each and every month’s box will be as exciting as the last! Each monthly box includes 6-8 kawaii items ranging from plushies, squishies, practical goods, kawaii stationery & more!
Choose from the following – monthly subscription, 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month.

YumeTwins Review October 2017 – Final Thoughts
I mentioned this in my last YumeTwins review but I just have to mention it again, YumeTwins is so much fun to unbox. They really have done a wonderful job with their subscription offering. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. And…..seeing as I am a sucker for great branding, I find myself loving this box even more now that they have spruced up their image. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I disliked their branding before, but I love a good refresh. In regards to the items we received this month, I am so happy to see a tiny hint of Halloween and the plushie is ah-mazing!! YumeTwins is a must-have for any girl.
