Ever wanted a box full of ultra-cute charms, accessories, plushes, snacks, stationery and more delivered right to your doorstep every month? Kawaii Box, the pioneer of cuteness in the latest subscription box craze, gives you 10-12 adorable items from Japan and Korea each month, with free shipping and a low price! Read on for my review of the March 2015 box and for the chance to win your own Kawaii Box!

The intro photo for the Eat My Knee Socks/Mimchikimchi review and giveaway of the March 2015 Kawaii Box!

Hey guys! A few days ago I received my very first subscription box in the mail: an ultra-cute box full of handpicked items from Japan and Korea!

This box is the Kawaii Box, which translates to "cute box." Kawaii Box was created by the same people behind Blippo, which I wrote a review on previously.

Kawaii Box is a monthly subscription service that delivers cute stationery, snacks, phone charms, DIY accessories and more from Japan and Korea!

For just $18.90 a month (or $17.90 with the 6- or 12-month plans) and with free worldwide shipping (plus tracking!), you get a carefully selected blend of 10-12 kawaii items, including stationery, Asian snacks/candy, mini pouches, keychains, plush mobile accessories, and more!

Everything about the Kawaii Box is adorable; even the box itself! The March 2015 subscription box comes with 12 items including Japanese candy, phone decor stickers, cute character stickers, a plush phone charm, a nail clipper, cute cartoon post-it notes, lace deco tape, a card holder, a hair clip, decorated envelopes, a cartoon-printed pin, and an adorable pen. The box also came with various little flyers for Blippo and Kawaii Box, as well as a thank-you note! (so thoughtful ;u;)


The Kawaii Box comes in a medium-sized box with a cute design and the Kawaii Box logo.

In the March 2015 Kawaii Box were 12 items, along with a handwritten thank-you note.

Printed Envelopes

One of the items in this month's Kawaii Box was this set of patterned light blue envelopes. There are around six envelopes in the pack, with a simple blue-and-purple plaid pattern. They're perfect for adding an extra touch to your mail, birthday cards, and invitations.

The March 2015 Kawaii Box comes with a set of patterned envelopes.

These patterned envelopes are perfect for letters, cards, invitations, and more.


Diamond Card Holder

The diamond card holder is very durable, with its light turquoise color and dangling white diamond charm. The quality is pretty good, and the style is so cute! You can put credit cards, ID cards, business cards, or any other cards in it to keep them safe and clean.

The diamond card holder from the March Kawaii Box is cute and functional.

You can put your ID card, credit card, business card, or other cards in this cute diamond card holder.


Bunny Ears Bobby Pin

This is a cute green hair pin with a bunny ears design. Super cute, fun, and easy to use! The quality isn't that great, though, so you have to be careful when handling it.

The bunny ears hair clip in the Kawaii Box is cute and simple.


Mini Plush Peach Fruit Charm

I love this mini plush fruit charm, which has a removable strap that lets you attach it to your bags, your phone, or anywhere you'd like! The one I got is pink, and I think it's a peach (side note: I love peaches. How did they know?). This charm is super soft and squishy, and even through the stitching isn't 100% perfect, it's just so cute!

One of my favorites from the March Kawaii Box was the pink peach mini charm.

This adorable mini fruit charm can be attached to bags, phones, and more to add a touch of cuteness!


San-X Sumikko Garashi Stickers

Another one of my favorites from this month's Kawaii Box is the Sumikko Garashi sticker set, which has a bunch of adorable stickers of San-X characters. They're great for decorating notebooks, cards, or whatever else you want to kawaii-fy!

This cute set of San-X Sumikko Garashi stickers is part of the March 2015 Kawaii Box!

The monthly Kawaii Box is full of cute things, like this San-X Sumikko Garashi sticker set!


Cartoon Badge

The Kawaii Box also comes with a badge with a cartoon character on it! This badge has a pin in the back and can be attached to backpacks and jackets.

Also in the March Kawaii Box was a cute cartoon-print badge.

This cartoon badge is perfect for decorating your backpacks and jackets.


Lollipop Nail Clipper

This lollipop nail clipper is both cute and functional. There's a bit of glue that you can see around the edges, but otherwise the quality is fine. Works great and looks adorable!

The March 2015 Kawaii Box subscription includes a cute lollipop nail clipper.


Piyo Mini It Note Stickers

Who knew that post-it notes could be so cute? The Piyo mini character-shaped notes are about as kawaii as it can get. The notes are quite small, but the quality and packaging is great!

The Piyo mini it, included in the March Kawaii Box, is a set of animal and character-shaped post-it notes!

This adorable set of animal-shaped post-it notes (the Piyo mini it) is just one of the many things in the monthly Kawaii Box!


Deco Tape

Packed in a delicately-designed floral-print box, the deco tape adds a fun, springtime touch to your cards, notebooks, and scrapbooks. I personally don't do much scrapbooking, so this isn't very useful for me, but if you're an arts-and-crafts lover, Kawaii Box has some fun DIY things for you!

Kawaii Box comes with a few stationery and DIY items, such as this lace deco tape.

This floral deco tape is perfect for lovers of DIY and scrapbooking.

Ballpoint Beans Pen

This is another cute and functional item, the ballpoint beans pen. It's a thin pink pen with a bean-shaped cap and some cute cartoon characters on the sides.

The Kawaii Box for March of 2015 comes with 12 items, including this beans pen.

DIY Lace Decorative Stickers

This is a set of three sheets full of lace-print stickers in various colors. These stickers can be used on phones, MP3 players, cards, etc. to add a dainty lace design! Great for anyone who loves DIY.

If you love decoden and DIY phone decor, these lace decorative stickers are perfect for you.

The March Kawaii Box included this set of three sheets of lace decor DIY phone stickers.


Mandarin Hi-Chew Candy

The last item in this Kawaii Box was a pack of mandarin orange-flavored taffy-like candies from Hi-Chew, a popular Japanese candy. The mandarin Hi-Chew candies are juicy, sweet, and, of course, chewy. The candies are light orange on the outside and white on the inside. I give the flavor an A+, and the package design is adorable too!

Each Kawaii Box comes with a special Asian snack or candy, like this mandarin Hi-Chew.

Hi-Chew candies are soft, chewy, sweet, and juicy (and the packaging is adorable too!)

Here's how I'd rate the Kawaii Box, in terms of pricing/value, quality, and kawaii-ness:

Pricing & Value: 5/5
♥♥♥♥♥
For just $18.90 with free shipping across the world, this Kawaii Box has 12 items, each valued between $2.00 and $4.60. Totaled together, this box has around $35-$42 worth of stuff, which means you get double the value of what you're paying!

Quality: 4/5
♥♥♥♥♡
The bunny ears hair clip was a bit flimsy, and the packaging for the lace deco tape could've been sturdier. The quality of the rest of the items was great, especially for the price!

 Cuteness: 6/5
♥♥♥♥♥♥
For something called Kawaii Box, this subscription box definitely lives up to its name. There's a wonderful variety of items — candy, phone charms, stationery, DIY, decoden, accessories, etc. — so you're sure to find something you like, and all the items share one thing in common: they're absolutely adorable!

Kawaii Box is full of cute items, including plush charms, DIY/decoden/scrapbooking materials, accessories, candy/snacks, stationery and more for a great value!

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with Kawaii Box, and I think it's a really fun subscription service, whether you want your own monthly box of handpicked cuteness or you want to surprise a friend! Personally, I would've loved to see more charms and plush items, since I'm a huge fan of those, but Kawaii Box's mix of different items is great for appealing to a wide variety of people and prompting me to try something new. 

Seeing this box in the mail and opening it up to find all these adorable items really brightened my day, and the fact that it's so thoughtfully packed, with a handwritten thank-you note, makes it feel so much more personal! If you like what you see here, check out Kawaii Box!
