SoKawaii May Box Review

SoKawaii ‘Spring Fantasy’ May Box

First off, SoKawaii is a monthly subscription service that is based in Japan, that offers fans of cute Japanese characters, such as Pokémon & Sanrio, the chance to have some of the most unique and exclusive items sent straight to their door. All of which comes housed in a cute cardboard box, with the items inside packed away safely under some craft paper.

Now this is my first time subscribing to SoKawaii, but have been a fan for the last couple of months since I started subscribing to their social media profiles. Their Instagram is my personal favourite –

So I picked the May crate, with the theme Spring Fantasy! For the sole reason that I adore Cardcaptor Sakura and jumped for my bank card straight away when I heard they had a CCS Tea Cup guaranteed in every box. Now when I think of Japan and Springtime, Cherry Blossoms do ‘spring’ to mind. Now that theme carries on with the tea cup and Hello Kitty zipper bags, an unusual item to see included in the box, but is quite useful.

Pokémon has been mainstream once again since the release of Pokémon Go, to the recent release of the live action video game adaption of Detective Pikachu. So a Pokémon Gachapon was a welcome inclusion in this box. I was lucky enough to get an Eevee, which when you open up your box it looks just like a head with no ears, as the rest of the body parts are hid inside. The overall figure is beyond adorable. Now the next item is a Silicone Cup Cover, which looks like it was bought from Daiso. Japan’s version of Dealz and Poundland, but with more character goods. Now tea is a big thing in Asia, just like in Ireland, so although it is slightly unusual to see this item in the box, it is quite practical.

I don’t know if it’s unusual or not, but we got two Sanrio character goods in this months box. Following the Hello Kitty ziplock bags, I also got a Cinnamoroll mechanical pencil. An adorable piece of stationary that I look forward to using. And lastly we have the very plush Luminary Tears Unil Pochette Bag. It is incredibly soft & eye catching, and you can carry it around on a detachable gold chain. Now although it is a visual dream, you can’t really fit anything in it. Perhaps a small coin purse at best, as I can’t even fit my phone in it.


For me this was certainly a worthwhile box, especially for the price. I just did the 1 month continuous subscription and only set out just to get this box. Unfortunately for my purse, June’s box has also caught my eye. Which I will make sure to do a review of when it gets here next month.

So here is the price break down and the savings you can get.

1 MONTH – $35.00/mo

3 MONTHS – $33.50/mo

6 MONTHS – $32.00/mo

12 MONTHS – $31.50/mo

Each box has 6 to 8 items included and a few of them will be revealed online through the SoKawaii social media as the weeks go by. June’s theme is Adorable Friends, and includes Sanrio, Sailor Moon & Pokémon goods.
