Doki Doki Crate November 2017 Review

Finally, a blog post. My November Doki Doki Crate arrived today so I thought I’d share it with everyone. I haven’t reviewed the October box as I honestly haven’t received it yet. It took 3 weeks to arrive and it went to my home address rather than my uni address, so I won’t be doing a review on that one. For anyone that doesn’t know, the Doki Doki Crate is a monthly subscription box that comes directly from Japan. They do a load of Kawaii items that I love, and I thought I’d buy it for a few months to see what I thought of it. The box costs around £25 a month and is available worldwide with free postage as far as I know. The price changes due to conversion rates, it’s listed in USD so you’ll be able to convert the cost depending on your own currency. The link for the box is: http://www.japancrate.com/dokidoki

I wasn’t disappointed with this box, I finally received a plushie! It’s adorable. It’s a Tempura cat, and apparently you can get a variety of different cats disguised as tempura. I wish they’d included a picture of the different cats that were available but I’m happy with the one I have.IMG_0232

There is also a face towel which is pretty cute, a very bright yellow, which isn’t my favourite colour, but it suits the design. I’d been debating buying a new face towel, so this is pretty handy and saved me the effort of finding one I like.IMG_0239

The Hello Kitty sandwich mould does seem a bit pointless to me. I’ve always been told not to play with my food so why would I want to mould my sarnies to look like a cat? Even if I did want to make odd shapes from them, this is a very small mould and would make a very small snack. Maybe a fun thing to do at kid’s parties, but would consist of too much food handling for me.IMG_0231

The divided plate is pretty sturdy. I don’t own any plates like this so I’m happy to give it a try. Not a fan of my food all mixing into one so maybe this is the way forward for me. Nice little addition, and even if it’s not used often it will be great for dividing snacks.IMG_0236

I don’t really understand the bread squishy. Apparently, people collect them? It’s okay for a stress ball but it smells gross and I’m not sure I’ll ever use it. Maybe after its aired out a bit it won’t be so bad but, for now its yucky.IMG_0237

The little canvas bag is useful though. Wales charges for every bag used so I’ve been looking at canvas bags to keep in my pockets or bag. I’m planning on making my own next summer, but this will keep me going until I get to my sewing machine. They could have added a bit more detail to it though, it feels a bit bland and cheap to me.IMG_0238

Last but not least is the Hoppe-Chan. You receive one of theses in every box and this one is adorable. It’s supposed to be a turkey, but I just see the little top hat and think of it as a turkey Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon. I love it.IMG_0235

A bit of a short review but all in all I enjoyed this box. A nice mix of useful and useless things. Either way the items will brighten up my room a bit. I definitely recommend looking into these boxes. They’re cute and a bit of fun, especially if you have younger members of the family.IMG_0234

I’m afraid my posts are going to be very infrequent as time goes on, I’m in my final year of an English degree and there is a lot of writing and reading to be done which will be my focus for the next 8 months.

Thanks for reading!
