Pharrell Quarterly Box Review #IAO06
Pharrell is one of the original Quarterly box curators, and this is the 6th box in his subscription. Pharrell’s bio from Quarterly:
Best known for his work with the Neptunes and N.E.R.D., Pharrell Williams is a creative force, using music, fashion and design to express his distinctive style. The theme of his mailings is curiosity.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included. The theme for this box is:
“Studying the chakras is a very personal and thoughtful journey – it’s all about you and the energy you have within.”
Areaware Cubebot – Value $8
This is one of those items I wasn’t too excited about when I first opened the box, but now it is on my desk and I play with it all the time! Pharrell included it since playing with cubebot “is another calming activity that can work wonders for relaxation and positive vibes.”
Kikkerland Rainbow Maker – Value $39
This little solar-powered machine makes rainbows with the motion of the Swarovski crystal refracting sunlight. (This video lets you see exactly how it works). This is one of those items I would never buy on my own (or even come across) but I think I’ll put it to use!
Ashramchic Mala Bead Bracelet – Value $45
This bracelet was custom designed for Pharrell Quarterly box subscribers. (Arianna Huffington also had a custom Ashramchic item in her most recent box). I like that this bracelet includes a smiley face charm – that seems very appropriate!
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $92. That’s pretty good for a Quarterly box, and I think this is a very personal box for Pharrell, so I imagine it is very popular with his super fans. Looking at some of his past boxes on “Best of Quarterly,” I can tell that not all boxes would have been for me – but I like this one!
