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…)

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!

  1. Wow! This looks like fun sub.

  2. That wrapping paper deserves to be framed.

  3. I love that Home Alone sweater shirt!!

  4. Seriously, they need to produce rolls of the rapping paper for sale. Every gift I give, for all time, would be “rapped” in that.

  5. I got this box . I love the tshirt I wore it on Xmas . The wrapping paper is great I won’t be using it though . It’s defiantly something I want to keep .

  6. I need that wrapping paper in my life.
