This is the info card that came with the package, detailing its contents. The reverse side is “mini-art” of the packaging for a Mr. T Shrinky Dinks activity set (shown above). I think Mr. T is mainly remembered as a 1980’s relic, but Shrinky Dinks are definitely from the 1970’s, so I’m wondering if this is what they printed on all the 70’s and 80’s box cards.
Six Million Dollar Man T-Shirt – Value $15?
This is a Retro Pop Box exclusive item, so I’m guessing at the value. I love this t-shirt! I was way too young to watch the show, but the Six Million Dollar Man was such an icon in the 1970’s. He was technically one of the first cyborgs on television, I believe. In any case, I also love that this tee is brown. I consider brown one of the official colors of the 1970’s, and I just love it!
Kellogg’s Apple Jacks Mini Cereal Box – Value $0.50
Color Changing Spoon – Value $1?
This spoon is really fun and the kids are loving it! I am a little confused at the choice of Apple Jacks cereal as the throwback treat because I am pretty sure they still make Apple Jacks. There are tons of cereals from the 70’s that they don’t make any more that would have been more fun to remember. Am I missing something?
Yogi Bear Collector’s Patch Set – Value $10?
This patch set is another exclusive item! I love these patches, and patches in general are such a 70’s thing.
“Keep On Truckin'” Vinyl Decal – Value $9.99
I normally would never consider putting decals anywhere, but this is THE iconic slogan from the 70’s! I’ll have to find a great place for it. I love the period font, too.
Shrinky Dinks – Value $6
Hooray for Shrinky Dinks! I can’t wait to share these with my kids. I loved making these when I was a child. This item is also the fun fact item of the month… Did you know that Shrinky Dinks were invented by two moms as part of a Cub Scout project in 1973? Is there anything moms can’t do?
Verdict: I love my 70’s Retro Pop Box! It is so awesome! I will totally use everything I received. It’s all so grooooovy, man! I don’t fully understand the Apple Jacks, but I’m sure they will get eaten. The value of everything totals $42.50, which is great for a $25 box. I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box!
