On the flip side, there’s a list of the products. They really have fun with their descriptions!
Home Alone Quote Tee – Value $15?
This tee is a festive homage to Home Alone, a classic Christmas-not-Christmas movie. This shirt is super soft and comfy, and I like how the design incorporates different imagery from the movie in a sweater-inspired pattern.
Nip the Cat Beanie Baby – Value $6.45
I squealed when I saw this cute kitty inside the box! Like all good 90s kids, I amassed a huge collection of Beanie Babies. The cats were always my favorite—I’m sure my first Nip the Cat is still in a closet in my mom’s house. Now she’s got a twin!
Like all Beanie Babies, Nip comes with a poem about their personality. (Zip the Cat from the poem also exists in a closet somewhere…)
I always loved how darn cute Beanie Babies are. Look at that expressive little face!
In case you’re not familiar with the Beanie Baby craze, this little card explains a bit about it.
Cartman Santa Ornament – Value $10.99?
South Park was the show that I wasn’t supposed to watch, but that I’d catch late at night and enjoy with wide, incredulous eyes. Nowadays, I can recognize that South Park isn’t just zany—it’s super smart, too!
I was unable to find this ornament online, so the value is based on a different character.
While my tree this year isn’t nearly big enough to hold this ornament (I just got a tiny tabletop one), Cartman Claus here looks pretty good perched on my mantle!
I wish the paint was a little more even on him, especially since this seems like a more expensive ornament, but seeing it did harken back to my younger years.
Holiday Candy – Value $1.00?
Hooray for holiday candy! I remember eating these tiny packaged candy canes back in the day. I’ve never seen peppermint Hershey Kisses before—they’re not quite retro, but they are tasty!
90s Toys Wrapping Paper – Value $1.00?
Wow! ‘Pac, Big, Diddy… I wouldn’t have expected all of these hip hop stars to end up on… OHHHHH. “Rapping” paper. Very clever, Retro Pop. Very, very clever.
Verdict: This box was full of fun, holiday items. The value is around $34.00 based on my estimates, which is just above the $20.00, plus $7.50 for shipping. They’re definitely novelty items for passionate 90s fans and collectors. They’re not the highest quality pieces, but they are cute trinkets to add to your holiday season!
