Measure-It 32′ Sticky Measuring Tape – Value $6.51

This product is kind of like a measuring tape mixed with painters tape. It has a gentle adhesive on the back that lets it stick to whatever you’re trying to measure. The package has photos of people using this along the length of beams, or to line up framed paintings on a gallery wall. This sticky tape takes away the need to mark up walls or worry about your measuring tape wriggling out of alignment as you go. I don’t have any immediate need for this little tool, but I’d bet it’ll come in handy some day. Into the toolkit, it goes!

Cobble Creek Magic Top Bottle Pourer – Value $5.89?

I couldn’t find this exact product online, but I found something extremely similar on Amazon, which I linked to above for value. This is such a clever little tool that makes any bottle into a soda-fountain-worthy dispenser. Just press your cup against the blue tap to dispense the drink inside the bottle. This could come in handy if you’re not a fan of hoisting a big heavy jug of milk or O.J. out of the fridge to pour a glass.

Retro Travel Kit – Value $12.00?

I’m not sure what the source or brand of this kit is, so I just took a guess at the value. This little canvas bag has a retro pattern down the center and inside, plus a matching zipper pull. Inside, there are a ton of handy travel toiletries, including…

… and a toothbrush and toothpaste. This is a useful little kit, since I always think I’ll remember these kinds of things on trips and… well… never do. So I’ll be using this on my next trip for sure!

Verdict: This month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome was filled with some pretty helpful items. I’m always surprised how strange-yet-useful everything in these mystery boxes ends up being. I’m especially happy with the travel kit. It’s just what I need before my August road trips! I estimated that there was about $24.00 of value in this box, which is actually quite a good deal considering it only costs $9.99. 

What was your favorite item from this month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome?

  1. how do i cancel this? there is not a single place on the entire website that has any info on how to cancel

    • I haven’t been able to figure it out either!! It’s really annoying.

  2. That’s so funny. My parents used to travel overseas quite frequently and they gave those travel kits to my kids. I recognized it immediately.

  3. Following to see if she complains that she got an old airline kit with expired toothpaste!

    • OH. MY. GOSH. I’m so glad I haven’t tried the toothpaste yet, because I TOTALLY missed the expiration date! How WEIRD! I would never have guessed that this was a kit from an airline – there’s really no reason to feel odd about it not being a retail product, but… it’s definitely giving me pause, haha! More than that, I’m VERY grateful to all of you who’ve commented about the expired toothpaste! I don’t really know what happens to a toothpaste when it goes bad… but I don’t feel like being the guinea pig who gets to try it out. At least most of the other products (the socks, the eye mask, the toothbrush…) are still A-OK to use, and the bag is still pretty cute and handy.

      Oh, Mystery Box, you are more random than I could ever imagine. Thanks to all the sleuths out there helping figure out this bag (and stop me from using toothpaste from years ago)!!!

      • Anna I look forward to your reviews the most! Love your writing and sometimes crazy boxes you review. Keep up the good work!

  4. That’s an American Airlines amenity kit (international first or business class – can’t recall) made by WESSCO International. I haven’t seen that version since (maybe) before the US Airways merger.

  5. Lol to that travel kit — it was the business class amenity bag for American Airlines (inspired/collaboration with Eames) that rolled out in December 2012. Could be a newer version but judging by the toothpaste comment maybe not :-p

  6. American Airlines gives (gave) that kit to all travelers in business and first class on overseas trips. I assume they switched to something else now and the extras of the old versions were sold off. As soon as I saw the photo I knew where it came from!

  7. Did the toothpaste expire in 2014?

    • Wow – you have good eyes!
