Hey guys, Arlet here! 😀 Welcome to another OddLearning post!
Today I will share my review of YumeTwins Subscription Box!
Also known as loot crates, subscription boxes are becoming more popular.
Who doesn’t love unknown Japanese products sent directly to their home?!
After being invaded by tons of ads in Facebook and pretty much every reading app i have, i decided to give in and buy one of this loot crates.
The most popular ones right now are:
- Loot Crate
- Japan Crate
- Tokyo Treat
- Kawaii Box
- Nihon Box
After browsing all of the other Subscription boxes I decided to try YumeTwins.
Tokyo Treat, nmnl and Yume Twins can be found in the same website, since they are all linked.
I have always loved Japanese products and i’m lucky to live in an city full of international products, so it’s not hard to find them, but the excitement to get something through the mail got the best of me (or worst).
Now, what is YumeTwins?
As quoted on their website:
YumeTwins is here to give you an authentic Japanese culture experience and provide you with the best experience possible through everything kawaii. We venture out to find high quality plushies, cute kawaii stationery, squishies and other surprises and deliver them in a super kawaii box! Best of all, shipping is free worldwide!
Each YumeTwins box is completely unique, ensuring each and every month’s box will be as exciting as the last! Thank you for being a part of the family and we hope you enjoy your kawaii journey with us.
I contacted them before getting the box and i must say they impressed me with the online support, answering all my questions and reassuring me if my box didn’t arrive on time or for some reason didn’t arrive at all they would give me a refund.
So I bought it!
The cost vary depending on which of the four deals you choose, if you want to pay for a yearly subscription then you get the max discount!.
I shall list them below:
- $35.00 for one month (The one i bought)
- $33.50 monthly for 3 months
- $32.00 monthly for 6 months
- $31.50 monthly for a yearly subscription.
(All prices are in USD so if you are in Canada like me it will cost you around $44.02 CAD, Not very cheap..)
It took exactly a month to arrive, just like they said, considering it wasnt extra wrapped on the outside i’m surprised it came intact :O
I received the promised items for the December 2017 box, they included:
- Fluffy Room shoes
- Rascal Dog or Cat
- Rilakkuma & My Melody Multi Use Case
- Marumofubiyori Mechanical Pencil
- Marumofubiyori Eraser
- Realistic Fluffy Cake Squishies
If you want to see a description for each you can see it in the link Yume Twins December Box 2017!
As you can see in the pictures (Sorry if they don’t have the greatest lightning) the items are quite cute, I really liked them.
But, would I buy it again?…….
I must say
Well I will be honest and say it is expensive, if you have the money to spare then why not.
I’m not saying the should make it cheaper, i think they thought about the prices thoroughly considering they are sending it directly from Japan. That’s not cheap and it’s a business right?
But I have bought the same products in a japanese store in my city and payed less than half.
I know many countries don’t have access to such products so getting this box sounds like a great idea!
But I lived in Mexico as well and if i were to think of paying $688.64 pesos, it like a punch in the stomach.
The average weekly salary in a good position pays $1000 pesos…so take that amount, you would have to be ready to not eat for a week.
First class luxury, maybe. As someone considered part of the middle class (Because we didn’t have enough labels to separate each other as humans…) I see this as an Expensive Treat.
So overall they provide a great service, they answer your questions, items arrive in good condition and on time, for that I can say they are great.
But i can pay my monthly phone bill for what the monthly subscription costs….
