Doki Doki May 2017 Subscription Box Review & Coupon

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

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.

DEAL: Use coupon code HELLO to save $3 on your first box!

Love this cover art by Anubis/TOMO!

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 Kawaii Critters!

There’s also a little comic and more fun stuff!

The middle of the booklet contains all the information about the items.

Everything in the May Box!

Sunhoseki Eclair Petit Lapin Plush – “Petit lapin” means small bunny in French!

This cute bunny is dressed as an eclair, a popular French pastry filled with cream and topped with chocolate icing.

So fluffy. It even has a yellow ribbon for a cute finishing touch!

Bunny Island? Sounds so kawaii to me. We’ll take note of that!

Children’s Day Hoppe-Chan – Japan celebrates Children’s Day every 5th of May. One of the most popular activities during this day is raising koi-shaped flags. Hoppe-Chan is sooo ready for this celebration!

As always, Hoppe-Chan makes a great phone and bag charm.

Sumikko Gurashi Shampoo Bottle – How adorable is this Sumiko Gurashi character?!? The info card states that subscribers will get either a Sumiko Gurashi Penguin or a Doraemon shampoo bottle, but I think we got Sumiko Gurashi Neko – that shy cat who often faces the corner!

This shampoo bottle will take the kids’ bath time into a whole new kawaii level.

Higemanju Gamaguchi Coin Purse – Perfect for cat lovers and kawaii enthusiasts!

It’s small yet fluffy, such an adorable way to keep loose change and other trinkets.

Aggressive Retsuko Stickers – Aggressive Retsuko is Sanrio’s newest character. We finally get to meet her through these fun stickers from Doki Doki. Apparently, she is a red panda and a successful businesswoman too!

Antler Beret: Peach Deer – Is there anything more kawaii than a pink antler beret? Deer are considered iconic animals in Japan, and this item is just the perfect way to remind us of that fact.

It’s another fun box from Doki Doki Crate! We love this subscription because they never fail to send high-quality and licensed kawaii items every month. Another thing is that this box’s appeal is not limited to kids, tweens, and teens. It’s also perfect for adults who love Japan and even those who simply like receiving kawaii stuff in the mail!
