Hi everyone!

This is Ayumi, the founder and CEO of TokyoTreat Group. I want to thank you foremost, for always using our TokyoTreat, YumeTwins and TokyoTreat Shop services! Because of all your continuous support, we’ve been able to come this far and expand in so many different ways!

We are happy to announce that on 12/2/2016 4PM JST, we will complete our renewal of the YumeTwins brand. We couldn’t have done it with you guys!

We not only redesigned our website but we’ve completely revamped our box and improved the quality of the content of our box!

Since the birth of YumeTwins in May 2016, we’ve been showered with unconditional love and even though we’re still only 6 months young, we’ve been able to grow at an incredible rate as a brand.

As a brand, we’re always trying to better ourselves by listening to our most important critics, our subscribers. We conducted a large-scale survey to hear what our subscribers like and want to see in their future boxes and how we can keep improving our service to satisfy all our subscribers.

Our philosophy has always been and will continue to be “to introduce the world to high quality Japanese products.

That being said, the biggest request in our survey was to have less items but with better quality and practical items. And we too learned that we can significantly increase the total value of your box that way! This allows us to bring you exclusive merchandise and premium items while maintaining the same subscription price!

With your requests in mind, here’s what you can expect to find in our new and improved YumeTwins box!

 – 5 Kawaii items Including:

  •  Premium plushie
  •  Lifestyle goods (*New!* Check out our newly reopened website at launching in 24 hours)
  •  Premium anime character merchandise guaranteed

 – FREE worldwide shipping

 – Value over $50!

We want to bring our subscribers higher quality items than ever before!

For example, every box will feature at least 1 premium quality plushie that is larger and of higher quality than ever before! To hold the larger plushie and other bigger items, we've completely redesigned and enlarged our box that it is now nearly 2x times bigger than the previous box.

Popular Japanese character will make an appearance in every box.

We asked, and you told us! Gathering the data from the survey we held, below are the most popular characters with our subscribers and you can count at least one of them making an appearance in your box each month!

  •  Sailor Moon
  •  Rilakkuma
  •  Hello Kitty
  •  Pokemon
  •  Studio Ghibli
  •  Doraemon
  •  Gudetama

We promise you that we’ll only ever feature authentic, fully licensed merchandises in our box!

Just imagine, your home filled with all sorts of kawaii Japanese characters!

Better, faster and more robust delivery!

YumeTwins uses the service of Japan Post to deliver your box every month. Japan Post is Japan’s oldest and largest postal service and maintains strong partnerships with other postal services around world.

Just in time for the new YumeTwins, we’ve gone ahead and strengthened our partnership with Japan Post to ensure that all of our subscribers receive their boxes safely and in a more timely manner than in the past.

Best of all, the price remains the same!

In order to bring you the new YumeTwins, that will be loved by even more people, we’ve gone through many major changes. Everything from the website, the box, box content, delivery but one thing remains the same – the price!

All of us at YumeTwins hope from the bottom of our hearts, that you enjoy the new and improved YumeTwins and will continue to support this kawaii-filled journey with us!

I love this! So its free shipping now? So that cost will be taken off of those already subbed or do we have to message yall about it?
Also, i love the little change in the mascots! They look a tad older in this art and i think thats nifty since yall are growing as a company! <3

I’ll miss the pretty purple box, but the new color is simply gorgeous! That eye popping blue looks charming, I can’t wait for my new box!!

The changes sound super awesome and have increased my expectations ? Can’t wait!

I’ve really fallen in love with the Shinada plushies we received in past boxes. I’ve got my heart set on getting more super soft fluffy plushies in boxes to come! Also, cute well known brands and characters are wonderful, but don’t abandon the random unknown (to the west at least) brands and characters you’ve made me come to love! And tiny knickknacks are still loved! Bigger is not always better in every case, but I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us!
I’ve subscribed since the very start at pre-order and I’ll stay with you guys for a long long time if you keep up the great work you’ve done so far! ♡♡♡

This is nice! Will those be the only licensed goods in future boxes, or can we occasionally expect different brands?

Vanessa says
December 02, 2016 at 6:50 PM

We’re so glad to see you excited about the improvements! ? Thanks for your support!

Vanessa says
December 02, 2016 at 8:05 PM

You can definitely expect other brands as well! ^_^

Vanessa says
December 02, 2016 at 8:08 PM

Thank you so much for your kind note, Carol! We still think of ourselves as a very young company, and our goal is just to get better and better every month. We hope we can keep up with the fun selection and the quality, and keep you as a subscriber for a long time! Thanks for your ongoing support! ?

Hi Lidia, thank you for the kind words! It really means a lot to us. We are always working hard to improve our service and appreciate all feedback and suggestions! We’ll definitely pass your interests on to our Curation Team! \(^ ^)/

I’m excited about bigger plushies (loved the big Shinada plush in the November box) and focusing on quality/popular characters/practical items, but I hope we will still get to see stationary items, Shinada/Amuse plushies and other Sanrio/SAN-X characters. Thanks!

Vanessa says
December 03, 2016 at 4:14 PM

Absolutely! Shinada is one of the leading Japanese Premium plushie makers that have been around for over 50 years, so you can still expect to find their premium plushies in our boxes! Also thanks for your suggestions, I’ve passed your comments to our Curation Team! 😀

I’m looking forward to it! I actually really like the obscure/unusual characters these boxes have provided so far…the reason I subscribed is because I can get things I can’t get on western websites or anime cons, otherwise I’d just subscribe to a western anime subscription box if I wanted only popular characters!
Personally I hope the guarantee of popular characters doesnt mean yumetwins will provide things I could get at any regular comic con or anime con, I love how unique the items always are, truly things I’ve never seen over here!! I esp love all the stationary you’ve provided so far, but I sure love that kinda thing <3 I'm sure it'll be awesome though, this is the only subscription box I've had where I love EVERY single item!You guys always do a great job!!

Uhhh, I really prefered the old way, and specially the old website and box design, the colors are not really cute now.

Vanessa says
December 05, 2016 at 9:02 AM

Thank you for the feedback and suggestions (≧∇≦)/ Our goal is to introduce as much Japanese culture as we possibly can, so you can definitely expect a wide range of characters (not only the popular ones) in our boxes. We’re going to keep working hard to offer even more amazing items each month! Thanks for being part of the family!

I started a 6 month subscription for my disabled daughter in Oct. She LOVED the Nov box but has not received one since then. She was REALLY looking forward to getting the December plushie hat and entering the contest. I can’t fix her disappointment from that, but Id like to avoid it from happening a third time.
I have been corresponding with Christina (request # 54206) for a month trying to get this resolved. Can you please help me?
Sorry for using this section to contact you but I don’t know what else to do and you seem to reply quickly here.
