Anyway. My Doki Doki box was waiting on my porch. I *almost* opened it first, seeing as one corner was crushed and I was afraid it had been opened. (But I disciplined myself and did the workout first).
As it turns out, the box was the only thing damaged. This month's theme was "Hina Matsuri" - the Japanese Girl's Festival. So it was kind of a girly box, which was fun.
This was my favorite thing:
Sasurai no Tabeneco is the brand, I guess - these are called marshmallow cats and they are VERY soft little stuffies. This one is apparently named Mikemura-san - sort of a cream colored cat with one black and one brown ear. They also have a little belly button on the underside.
And a Disney Princess cup. I got Jasmine:
And a second stuffie:
PuniPuni, a rabbit "Empress" (it is traditional on Girls' Day to have a display of dolls, with the Emperor and Empress at the top)
There were several other things - a little pencil case, and a clip, and the inevitable Hoppe Chan, and an Atsune Neko keychain - but these things were my favorite (especially the little squishy cat)
There was ANOTHER box, in the mailbox this time: a surprise gift from a Ravelry friend. A slightly belated birthday present, but that's even better, because it's something on an ordinary day.
Bee works at the Bodleian and always sends excellent book-themed cards:
There were lots of little things in there - puffy Easter stickers, and a flowerpot eraser and a lipstick pen and a notebook and a big sucker (to be saved for after Lent, at this point!)
And last but not least, a sheep stuffie!
