What is a JulieJulie Box? And wat was in it?
The most original package I ever had, came last week at the end of a long day. Some of you may know me and may know the fact that I have a very good friend called Julie, who is a fantastic collector as well. Last year we began sending each other packages, just out of fun. It became a tradition and so, every 3/4 months or so we sent each other a package filled with not only model animals. But this package from her was just the best! I told her about a Monthly Subscription Box called DokiDoki, from the people of Japan Crate (www.japancrate.com/dokidoki) that is filed with Kawaii stuff. Sadly the box was 30 dollar per month and the shipping costs (and import costs as well) where to much to continue the two gifted boxes I got from Tijn <3 So after two boxes, no more DokiDoki for me. But my sweet, crazy friend decided it was not the end and... made her own JulieJulie box, inspired on the DokiDoki one. For clearance, this is inspired on the DokiDoki box and not a new brand at all! Let that be clear. It is just for fun <3 She filled the box good, with all kinds of stuff. Look:
Too much! Ohmygoodness the stuff <3 I will go trough it a bit on this blog-entry, mostly the animal models.
Lets begin with stuff other than model animals.
Big cat 3D card, Playmobil panda key chain, food erasers, Kawaii cat stickers, doughnut phone hanger (I will have some fun with this guy later! XD), a make-up mirror and a cute little cat post-it notepad in a box.
My very first Warrior Cat book! With a shiny owl bookmarker. I can't believe I have my very own Warrior Cat book now! I have heard so much about this series and watched fan-art, that I was very curious about it. I have not start to read it yet, this book will go on my vacation in the end of August, begin September. Now I have to get other book too :D
To stay in the Japan Kawaii theme, Julie made her own Re-ment based set: Breakfast <3 The creativity is level 1000 here! Breakfast contains a milk pack, toast, bacon and egg and coffee! Getting hungry now!
Now for the animal models!
My very own Tabitha, my favorite cat in a phone game called: Neko Atsume Kitty Collector. A very cute game with many cats that you have to collect. You do that by luring them in your back garden with toys, food and other nice cat stuff. Tabitha is hand-made of course! <3 Look at the cute face. ^..^xxx~
Tsum Tsums! I have been collecting them for a few weeks now. But only the animals from the Disney series, such as Bambi, Lady and the Tramp, Lion King, etc. Mickey and Minny Mous, Goofy and Donald Duck are not welcome as they are to humanoid for me. Julie included a package of two (one visible, the other is a surprise) in her JulieJulie box. I got Babbel and the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.
I get more and more AAA animals in my collection lately and Julie included one heck of an AAA animal. The gray howling wolf! It is big and beautiful and my little Safari LTD Vanishing Wild white wolf pup adores her new big brother as you can see. The details are great on this wolf <3
Julie also included some new 2016 animals from the big brands in the box. This is the new Papo 2016 hare. Its style reminds me of Watership Down and I call her Hazel now. It has a very friendly face and the upright pose makes it curious as well. I love the colors on this one.
An other 2016 animal, this time from CollectA. CollectA is on a roll with unusual species and poses and this Wombat with baby in pouch joins this line. It is enormously cute, how the baby looks out of his mother pouch like that. My first wombat in my collection, so proud of this one <3
Julie wont be Julie is she doesn't include an animal with a brand that I never heard of, Brunnen. Brunnen is a company who makes learning supplies and had made a small line of common wild animals. This cute little jaguar cub is a very welcome new addition to my ever growing feline shelf <3
Some small animals and a plush. Safari LTD salamander, what a cute little amphibian! Two Play Visions, Hourglass dolphin and a cape buffalo. And the most adorable shark plush I have ever seen! It has a very charming smile.
Julie knows me, as she included one of my favorite sea mammals, and orca! It is a puzzle orca from a series of three (shark, orca and whale). It comes in a fancy blue shell and it is set easily, lucky for me as there is not leaflet how to assemble it XD The orca can be pinned on a rod in the cap of the shell. Or it can be laying loose, with Kaiyodo orca for size.
And last but not least, some small animals from different brands and sizes. One Finding Dory blind-bag otter, Good Dinosaur egg capsule flying dinosaur XD. A dog I suspect of being a Border Collie, but I am not sure, from the Polly Pocket Sparklin Pets Dual sets and a very cute little sheep who needs a bit of love and attention form my brushes and paints <3
Thank you so much dear Julie, for the awesome package! <3
Welcome to my blog! Look around and be amazed by the world of animal collections.
