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.
Love this cover art by tokimekiwaku!
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 of course, Halloween!
The middle of the booklet contains all the information about the items. There’s a little comic and more fun stuff!
Everything in the October Box!
Halloween Hoppe-Chan Stickers: OMG, these are just too cute! I think these are great for decorating little notes to friends. Or an interoffice memo! ? No seriously, I would!
Kawaii Injection Pen: A little macabre kawaii humor for the most basic stationery accessory, the pen! My daughter ran away with this immediately.
Chakkun Coin Purse: I love Chakkun’s fun mix-match design. It has a cell phone charm loop on it though – I wish it were a clip, but it’s soft and you can loop it on a keychain.
Take-Omo Spooky Style: Just for October Take and Omo, two of Doki Doki’s exclusive characters, are decked out for Halloween!
We got Vampire Omo and she is soooo cute with her little vampire drippy blood, but Take would have been equally awesome!
Monthly Hoppe-Chan: I can’t get enough of Hoppe-Chan, a little gum drop with sweet sparkly cheeks!
She’s dressed to the nines for Halloween, with star, pumpkin, ice cream sundae, and a straw in her purple gel frosting ‘do!
Caplico Strawberry Ice Cream Candy: So did you happen to notice that the main photo only had the wrapper? That’s because I ate this immediately, looked at my pics, and it was a terrible shot! I blame it on Vampire Omo’s mystical spell!
The goodie, of course, was delicious – strawberry and chocolate bubbly creamy confection in a waffle cone!
Doki Doki Original Yokai T-Shirt: I like this shirt, and I think the style is very Coop (designer for Lords of Acid album covers – and not linked because it’s not safe for work). The shirt itself features many yokais (monsters, demons, and ghosts that come from Japanese folklore) and is a super awesome design. But I have reservations on this one simply because of the fact that I get this shirt in my daughter’s size, and I think it’s a wee bit racy for school!
Angel Wing Hair Clips: And pink fuzzy hair clips!
These attach easily and are a super cute and shockingly easy to pull off hair accessory!
Doki Doki Original Halloween Face Mask: This makes for a super quick and fun Halloween costume or everyday cosplay! We got the cute vampy fangs design!
Do you think I’m ready for Halloween?
This was a really fun edition of Doki Doki! We especially loved Vampire Omo and Halloween Hoppe-Chan! This month did seem like it had a bit of filler items in it, though. I would prefer higher quality over quantity, but other subscribers may like the variety, especially for quick Halloween goodies!
