Fandom of the Month Club is great about covering a wide array of books, TV shows, games, and even classic movies like Jurassic Park!

This card comes with each box, though the thematic design on the back changes month to month. It’s tricky to find the items inside the box online, since there’s no information about the makers or sources behind these designs. Rather than guess at the values, I’ll just break things down in the Verdict section at the end of this post—stay tuned!

Canvas Pouch

Each month, there’s a custom canvas pouch that the pieces come tucked inside. At first, these pouches were kind of fun to collect, but I feel like recently, the quality of them has been a little… meh. The cotton canvas is nice, and it zips shut, but the design feels more like an iron-on than a screenprint. I’m pretty good at putting these sorts of subscription box pouches to work as accessory pouches or ways to pack small toiletries, but these pouches are starting to lose a little value for me.

Mr. DNA Magnet

This business-card sized magnet isn’t the strongest thing ever, but seeing Mr. DNA (from the cartoon all about how DNA and how Jurassic Park was created) definitely gave me a laugh. I remember this scene, with (amazing, beautiful, hilarious) Jeff Goldblum staring at this super corny cartoon explaining complicated science!

Skeleton Necklace

I love the concept of this necklace! The dinosaur “bones” form a pretty significant shape that sits like a bib necklace would against my neckline. I like the antiqued gold hue, though the quality of this lightweight look suggests it might not last. (It doesn’t feel super sturdy.)

Pterodactyl Earrings

Oooh, the pterodactyls were always my favorite dinos in this movie. I just thought it was so cool (and scary) that there were dinosaurs that flew! These small stud earrings are sort of a quirky take on those sparrow or dove-shaped earrings everyone was wearing a few years ago.

T-Rex Earrings

There are also T-Rex earrings with a more pewter-ish hue to them. They’re small, so they can find their way into a lot of outfits. I almost wish these were also studs, so that I could wear a different dinosaur in each ear!

I’m the Alpha Keychain

I haven’t seen a keyring in this box in awhile, and I think it’s a cute idea. The bubble charm doesn’t seem like the highest quality item (the design is a little pixelated and fuzzy, and the edges aren’t even on mine), but again, it’s definitely perfect for a fan of this movie. And especially since the items thus far haven’t really pointed specifically to the movie (just to dinosaurs in general), I like that this keychain nods to the “alpha” concept from the third movie.

Mosquito Ring

Ah, the mosquito fossilized in amber—the thing that started it all! Again, this is a really cute concept for a ring, but it’s not really executed so well. This is an adjustable ring that seems to be made of not-so-great flexible metal, and the bubble isn’t sitting evenly in the setting. Still! It’d be something awesome to wear on a museum adventure and would turn heads at Halloween or a fan event!

 

Verdict: The designs in this month’s Fandom of the Month Club were so clever, but they fall short quality-wise for me. Now, granted, this box only costs about $17.00, which means each of the 7 items is only worth about $2-$3. So essentially, I think you get what you pay for! I thought the products this month were cute, but I do with there were more specific nods to the movies, rather than general dinosaur items.

What do you think of this month’s Fandom of the Month Club finds?

  1. That necklace rocks!!!

  2. At first when I opened the box, I wasn’t too excited about the theme but I LOVEDDDD everything in it! It’s perfect for a archaeologist (with a paleontology undergraduate degree) like me!

    • Oh my gosh, Mallory, that is SO COOL! What a fascinating field to be in! This month’s box was basically made for someone like you – I’m so glad you’re loving it. Thank you so much for reading 🙂

  3. Okay…so I saw the theme and rolled my eyes, patting myself on the back for having no FOMO.

    Argh!! I totally want that T-Rex necklace!!! I will restring that baby if I have to (and I has no skills) so I am now tripping over myself to find it on swaps.
