Exclusive Seinfeld Vandelay Industries Tee – Value $15?

Every box comes with an exclusive t-shirt nods to a different iconic ’90s reference. This month, I was stoked to see a Seinfeld reference! I love that this tee gives George Costanza’s fake business a logo—and that I get to wear the logo around on a cool tee! I’m not so keen on the cap sleeves of this fitted women’s tee, but I’ll suffer with them if it means I get to sport this Seinfeld reference around!

Magic Eye Postcard – Value $1.00?

I couldn’t find this exact design online, so I linked to something similar. I was wild about Magic Eye books when I was little, so this is a great blast from the past! Stare intently at this pretty pattern, then keep your eyes focused as you draw the pattern farther away, and a secret image will emerge. Sounds easy, but it takes a few tries (and maybe a little headache or two).

After a few rounds of staring deep into this rose pattern, I saw a heart emerge in the design! What a cool twist on a traditional Valentine’s Day card.

Pink Stretchy Choker – Value $2.90

Can you believe this ’90s staple accessory is actually back in style? I’ve seen them at the mall and even on some cool teens strolling through town. I can’t find my old chokers, so lucky I have this pink one to turn to!

The Little Mermaid Scratch and Sniff Stickers, Set of Two – Value $2.50?

I couldn’t find this sticker design so I linked to a similar sticker set. I wasn’t the biggest Little Mermaid fan growing up (I had brown hair, so of course, I was more of a Belle gal), but it was nice to see Ariel and Flounder’s familiar faces!

These stickers have a sweet, candy watermelon scent to them. Fresh out of the package, they didn’t need to be scratched for me to pick up on the scent. I forgot about the era of everything being scented, so these stickers were a fun trip down memory lane!

Looney Tunes Magnets, Set of 4 – Value $11.98

I’m always on the hunt for more good magnets, and I love these Looney Tunes designs. They’re simple in their shape, and even in the way the minimalist way the characters are drawn.

They have a good bit of stick to them, as well! I’m always happy to get items that are practical AND playful!

Fruit Stripe Gum, Pack of 17 Sticks – Value $1.50

I’ve mentioned in previous reviews that I’m not a big gum fan, but that doesn’t mean I don’t see this gum as an ’90s icon!

Check out our review of the February 2017 Retro Pop '90s box!

This gum has a zebra-stripe pattern (and a zebra mascot to match).

The best part is that the wrapper has tattoos on it! Just wet your skin and press these zebra design down firmly onto it for a few seconds.

Verdict: The items in this box provided a great trip down memory lane! I liked that there were some useful items in the box, too—not that I don’t love getting fun ephemera, too, but I always love knowing that things like the magnets and postcards won’t wind up in the junk drawer. The value is almost $35.00 based on my estimates, which is comfortably above the $20.00 cost (even after I add the $7.50 required for shipping).

  1. I could never do Magic Eye. I have had surgery three times to correct an eye muscle imbalance and I can’t, to this day, do the depth perception tests at the eye doctor’s office. I think I am physically incapable. My brother used to have a ton of the books and such but I never once saw any of the images. I just walked away with a headache.

  2. Did you know this box is shutting down? They announced it on their Facebook page.

    • We saw! It’s a shame – it was a fun box! Thanks for calling that out, Catherine. We’ll miss you, Retro Pop!

  3. I really want that shirt! I love it. As soon as I saw the gum I had a scent memory and I can totally remember the fruity smell of it. lol

  4. Fruit Stripes gum? in the NINETIES? Try the SEVENTIES!!

  5. Yep definitely a heart. I totally forgot about these! Awesome!

  6. I’m a master of the magic eye – it’s definitely a heart 🙂

  7. I just swapped for this box (mostly for the tee)-the rest is fun too, though!

  8. Good box!

  9. For the Magic Eye I saw a heart in the middle of the rose pattern… I’m guessing this is what you meant when you said you saw a rose. 🙂

    • HA! Oh my gosh I did say “rose” twice, didn’t I? Boy, that Magic Eye really scrambled me up! Thanks for catching that, Shawna. And yep, that’s definitely a heart inside that image <3

      Thanks so much for your comment! I'll update the post with the correct object!

  10. heck yes on the magic eye postcard. scholastic got quite the penny from my magic eye book orders. i always had a teacher note sent home every school year up till 6th grade asking my parents to get my eyes checked bc i was always cross-eyed in class staring in my magic eye books. cute box, but it’s odd mixing all youth items with a seinfeld shirt. how about a hey dude, wild & crazy kids or alex mack shirt with those products?

  11. Vandalay industries! 😆 dying!!! I want this shirt!!!

  12. Vandalay Industries LOL!!! “And you want to be my latex salesman!”
