Kawaii Box review


Hello Littlest Sweet Shoppers!

Today's post is all about Kawaii Box. Kawaii Box is the cutest monthly subscription service. Subscribe Now and receive a box filled with hand-picked kawaii items from Japan and Korea directly to your home every month. Your box will be shipped in the beginning of each month and the shipping is absolutely free, anywhere on the planet! Each box includes 10-12 cute, original and licensed kawaii items.

Before we check out the items in my Kawaii Box, let me show you how much I love my kawaii world. It's not a big surprise that Japanese culture and anything kawaii (literally means cute in Japanese) is a big inspiration for Littlest Sweet Shop. I love clashing my Sanrio items (and I only get the original My Melody items from Japan) with my favourite English and Scandinavian decorative items like GreenGate, Cath Kidston, Laura Ashley and Tilda. Check out the shelf in my studio/room:
I keep most of my tools in kawaii tin boxes (and display the Tamiya decoration series) and the rest are stationary and various knick-knacks
The best part about the Kawaii Box service is that it arrived at my home in England in less than a week! I was so thrilled to receive it so quickly. It was fun opening the package since you don't know what you will get and each month will be another new surprise! Here is my box for the month of November:
My Melody socks, Mini Calendar, 'OMG' key-chain, Pocky sticks, Mini notes, Macaron deco squishy, Zipper bracelet, Panda stickers, Kitty plush key-chain and lace tape
I was most delighted to receive this pair of My Melody socks. My only concern is that it looked a bit small for my feet (I have LONG feet T_T). For now it will be sitting in the sock drawer with my other favourite socks.

My collection of stickers has grown with the addition of this cute black and white Puffy Panda stickers. 2 rows of the panda stickers looked like it was doing a Piroutte which I found to be really sweet and precious.

The lace tape is brilliant for cardmaking and scrapbooking. I made a birthday card for a friend in just minutes using this tape and some puffy stickers.

The people at Kawaii Box were quite thoughtful about what to include in each Kawaii Box. This practical 2015 Calendar will sit by my window. It's in a shape of a cute sheep which reminds me of my favourite puppet / stuffed animal called Lambchop. Unlike almost everybody who uses a smartphone (I don't even own one), I actually prefer using physical calendars that I can write/mark on. 

Every month the Little Sheep makes a different expression and the best part is that it starts with November 2014 so I can start using it right away! Thank you for being so thoughtful Kawaii Box people :D

The Macaron deco squishy can be attached to anything - phone, keys, bags and the 'OMG' key-chain is perfect for any drama queen (that's me!).

The zipper bracelet is so unique and made up from pink and baby blue zipper teeth - my favourite colours! Definitely adds a touch of quirkiness to my wardrobe.

How cute are these little post-it notes? It's super kawaii especially amongst my other stationary and Iwako erasers.

The cat plush key-chain coincidentally matches my new University of Cambridge Satchel in a very sweet colour called 'Cambridge Blue'.

And finally - a food element! There will be a sweet treat in every Kawaii Box and I got a box of chocolate Pocky sticks in mine :)

My husband LOVES Pocky and was pleasantly surprised when I gave him a whole box of it. The English version is called 'Mikado' and not nearly as nice as the original which is crispy and salty like a pretzel. I would usually get a box of Pocky Almond Crush and Japanese groceries when I'm in the Japan Centre in London. Getting some Japanese sweets via the post is definitely easier than having to go to London!

So if you would like to receive an awesome box of kawaii goodness like this every month - click on the image below.



  1. Everything in that box is so adorable! I get a similar box, and not only did they make a new subscription service, but now I've found out about this one too!? I may have to give in and get this sometime, though wish I could've got November's box :)

    1. I think it's a brilliant idea to receive kawaii items every month like this!
