Hi People, If you are not a student anymore, doesnt mean you cannot have cute stationery. For me, Nothing could have beaten the fun and satisfaction of picking cute stationery at malls so the designs and additions can be entirely of my own choice until the subscription boxes came into existence. Getting a box full of cute stationery items is a bliss. Excitement shoots up even more, when the contents of a box are not revealed and every month there is a little surprise waiting for you. But do not let your love for stationery fool you as not all subscription boxes provide quality and value of money. Today i am going to review one of the most raved subscription box that is Zenpop Stationery Pack.
ZenPop is located in Osaka, Japan. This service is brought to you by ZenMarket which is a Japanese online shopping and proxy service.

Zenpop Stationery Pack includes 10 or more unique items from Japan, which comprises of stickers , washi tapes, writing utensils, sticky notes, notebooks and other accessories. This pack is available for one time purchases, and subscription plans also available. Zenpop provides Free International Shipping to most countries.
First of all, i cannot deny the fact that i loved the box overall, every item in the box is very cute, and useful for every stationery user. It has almost every item from each category of stationery. Lets get deeper into the items one by one.
I must mention here that zenpop has put their effort in the packaging. The box is made out of a sturdy cardboard with a solid fun and bright coloured printing on it which is simple yet loud. The contents of the box are enclosed in a tissue paper to hold it in a place.
A beautiful thankyou note with a discount code for next order, and a pamphlet for all the details and description of the items included in a pack, plus a little japanese vocabulary that is fruits names , which needs to be mark 10/10.
Melty Cafe Pencil Sharpener
It is a cute coffee cup inspired sharpener that store pencil shavings inside it, almost like a little container for your shavings. I was really impressed by the packaging of this sharpener, so i thought why not put it to the test if it sharp that well too. And results were just as good as the packaging.
Fruit Scissors With Magnet
At a first sight, i thought it is one of those decorative fake fruit items we stick on our refrigerators until i turn it back and saw this cute little scissor popping out of it. Above all the cuteness , It sticks really well on any metal object but as we can see, it is a really fine scissor too. I got it in ‘banana’.
AIUEO Fruits – Chan Sticky Notes
One of my favourite item from this months box is these super fun sticky notes, with the little fruits bordering the edges. It has a really well sticking power too.
Kiguru-Me Ring Notebook
The box contains the only notebook but the most good one. Kigurumi is a japanese word which means animals suit. If you look closely you ll see each one of the penguins is wearing a clothes. So this is a really cool concept to incorporate in a notebook. I love the quality of a paper, ink doesnt bleed through it and it is very well made too.
The pack includes a sheet of vinyl stickers which were so pigmented and clear. I got it in the type ‘book lovers’ , which includes little book stickers, pencils , borders and some corners for bookmarking.
This months pack included two washi tapes.
● Fruit Washi Tape
Fruit washi tape is from BGM, who no doubt has the most beautiful washis ever. The whole tape has little watercoloured fruits handpainted on it. I love it the most of all the items.
● Rainbow Washi Tape
Rainbow washi is the bonus item in the pack, basically you do not pay for it, they ll send you as a bonus item if you subscibe to zenpop. It is a multi purpose washi, which is use to decorate your journals but to list your things as well.
3D Fruit Memo Pad
The most unique item in the box is this 3d fruit memo, which is memo but not a regular one. All you have to do is to open it up and clip it shut, and you ll end up with a beautiful fruit lying on your table. One can barely tell its not a real fruit. I got in the ‘pear’ but it comes in apple and lemon too.
Mini Letter Set
Cute mini letter set has little envelopes and little sheets with strawberry printed all over it. Talking about the strawberry, Japan has this unique event held every year in most strawberry farms from february to May , where you can pick and eat your desire fruits while you are at the farm. Sounds really interesting.
The pack included four writing utensils which are :
● Rushon Petite Waterbased Ink Pen
It is a waterbased fine liner pen with a really pigmented ink, i got it in the colour emerald, it is perfect for taking notes and writing random stuff.
● Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pen
Sai water colour pen is the most favourite of mine above all of the writing utensils present in the pack. It is so smooth and easy to work with. The brush tip is versatile and soft. Perfect for brush lettering or modern calligraphy.
● Yummy Stationery Wooden Pencil
I got this cute pencil which has little bunnys all over it. It is so cute that i feel like i cannot waste it by using it. But as always, i put it to the test and the wood is really best quality, no doubt.
● Platinum Pens – Surprise Item
Platinum pen is a surprise item in this month’s box. I got the zero shine mechanical pencil, and it is no doubt the best mechanical pencil ever.
