Doki Doki is a monthly Kawaii subscription box from Japan Crate. Every month you’ll receive super cute Japanese items – accessories, stationery, plushies, and other adorable Japanese goodies.
The his box is really super cute! Each crate comes with a manga-style booklet to help you figure out what each item is (that means it’s bound on the right side instead of the left!).
The theme this month is Back To School. Are you ready?
The middle of the booklet contains all the information about the items.
There’s a little comic too.
Everything in the August Box! Such cuteness! So excited about the shirt this month!
Hoppe-Chan Pencil Case: I am so in love with Hoppe-Chan, which I discovered from this kawaii subscription! This time she appears on a pencil case!
Sumikko Gurashi Notebook: this spiral bound notebook includes a lazy little crew.
The inner pages are decorated and nicely lined. My daughter has been using it to brainstorm ideas for her Minecraft blog.
Hoppe Chan & Doki Doki Friends Stickers: Puffy stickers! On the left we have the first few characters exclusive to Doki Doki like Take-Omo and Petit Lapin. On the right is a panda bear – I can’t recall the name! But it’s so cute! And global with a star & crescent.
Petit Lapin Silicone Charm: Adorable packing for this rabbit/macaron combo.
There’s also a new plushie line introduced this month – the Homeroom Bear!
Exclusive Homeroom Bear ID/Pass Holder: We got Coco! For some reason she is “bubbly but not so bright.” I guess it takes all types to make the world go round.
If you take the subway in DC, this would be perfecto. I love lanyard reels. LOVE. Actually I might use this to store my drivers license when I travel by air. I can’t ever figure out where I stuck it.
Chocolate Dipped Biscuit Pen: This cute confectionery pen is perfect for class!
I really couldn’t tell you what it’s supposed to be, because I cannot envision a specific treat it emulates. Nevertheless, it went in my daughter’s girl-tastic pen cup!
Sunhoseki Japan Hoppe-Chan & Doki Doki Friends Washi Tape: Unbelievably (because kids are absolutely insane about tape) we’re almost out of washi, despite me buying a giant bulk order not so long ago! I was happy to see this!
Rilakkuma T-Shirt: New to the box this month – a shirt! It doesn’t get better than Rilakkuma! I do wish the shirt was pink like the information card shows though. Apparently Rilakkuma is getting a massage. The information card was quite necessary – none of us had any idea what was going on. Please share your translation for the shirt in the comments!
We are SUPER excited about the Cats theme for next month – did you see the September 2016 Doki Doki spoilers?
