We Review: Japan Crate DOKIDOKI Subscription Box January ’16

Hello Everyone!

How are you enjoying the new year thus far? I must say it’s treating me quite nicely; I officially began my new job and I absolutely love it! I’m a bit more busy since my schedule is Monday – Friday rather than Thursday – Monday, but it’s becoming a bit easier to manage. Anyways, a week ago I finally got my DOKIDOKI Japan Crate Box in the mail and actually opened it today and took pictures!

Title

DISCLAIMER: I was not asked nor sponsored by Japan Crate to do this review. The subscription was entirely paid for by myself. Thanks for your understanding.

To be honest, I almost passed on this box. I talked myself into it after a co-worker told me about her Japan Crate subscription and how her daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. So I ended up purchasing a subscription and it arrived last Monday. (۶* ‘ꆚ’)۶” And I opened it today, so I’m gonna share what I got!

opening

The package is a very pink box with white for lettering and what not. It’s actually quite sturdy in my opinion, it didn’t bend or crease in my mailbox. It’s so charming with little sayings such as 「大好き」and 「かわいいですね。」and cute characters decorating the inside of the box. I may be keeping it for future unknown uses!

guide

Every Japan Crate box comes with a guide that explains the items you received in your package. This month was quite cute, with a pink hair girl with cute character-based items around her. They also have a photo contest and cute little comic featured in it!

rilakkuma

The first item was a packet of Rilakkuma memo pads! I love cute stationary so this was actually well received. I don’t know when I will use it, but I’ll probably bring it to work where it’ll have better usage. (๑ˊ▵ॢˋ̥๑)

domo

Who doesn’t like Domo-Kun? Japan Crate featured some really cute Domo stickers in this month’s crate and I absolutely adore them to bits. I might give a couple to friends who would enjoy them a bit more than me, but the egg one stays with Tay Tay.

alpacasso

Next up was this Baby Alpacasso! Although it’s incredibly adorable, I do have to say that this was a damaged item in my box…

The left eye was actually missing from my Alpaca and although it’s unfortunate, I’ll still use it for decoration with just the right side showing. (.`・﹏・´.) It’s still very cute and fluffy though!

sushi

This is actually one of my favorite items out of the box! They’re sushi socks! I wonder how they’ll look on my feet. They’re so cute but I’m not too sure what type of sushi they’re supposed to be. ┐(´・c_・` ;)┌ As long as they’re warm and comfy, I’m not going to be picky.

pikachu

Yes. That is exactly what it is. Specifically, it’s the Pikachu Hip Pop Parade Plush and I absolutely love it. It is literally just Pikachu’s butt as a keychain and I don’t know when or where I am going to use this blessing but it will be used. ٩( ᐛ )و

hoppe

I have no idea what this thing is…or what it is. Apparently, it’s called “Hoppe-chan” and it’s a blob that popular. I have no idea what to say or what I am going to do this it. It’s got a cute design but I’m absolutely clueless.

sailor moon

I am very familiar with this item! I’ve gotten quite a few in different series and such, but I was still so excited to receive one in this box. I ended up getting the Sailor Moon I was missing which was the face with the wink. It’s so cute and tiny, so you can place it in so many different places without having to worry about it taking up too much space like the huge figures.

hello kitty

I didn’t think that there’d be fashion accessories in this box for some reason, so this incredibly cute and sturdy Hello Kitty wallet kind of surprised me! It’s got two sides and both are quite adorable with pastel backgrounds. Unfortunately, this item was also damaged. The coin pouch zipper doesn’t work correctly and is essentially broken, so I’m not 100% sure if I’d use it… ( ˃̶͈ ̯ ̜ ˂̶͈ˊ ) ︠³

sentimental

This is so cute and rather expected from a Japanese subscription box seeing as how these are quite popular in Japan. I’m not too familiar with Sentimental Circus but this is such a cute elephant and I suppose the fan will be rather useful further on into the year.

Overall, this box was rather cute and a few items I really enjoyed. I was a bit disappointed that two of the items were damaged and some of the items were just kind of bland, but maybe it’ll get better. I renewed my subscription for next month so we shall see how it goes. └(・-・)┘

PicMonkey Collage

I hope you all enjoyed this post! It was rather long…sorry! I wanted to show you everything in the box, I didn’t realize how much was in it until after the fact. I’ll be sure to share the next box with you all and hopefully it’ll be a tad better.

If you received a DOKIDOKI subscription box from Japan Crate, feel free to tell me your experience down in the comment section!

Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! Please be safe if you’re experiencing a lot of snow!!!!

Thanks for Reading~! ❤
With love,
Taylor Rae
