This is the information card that was included, detailing the package’s contents. This month’s theme is “Good vs. Evil.”
I would be remiss in failing to mention that this is the April package, but I just received it this week. This has happened now three times in a row, so I’m beginning to think this is just one of those boxes you have to count on not receiving until the beginning of the next month. It’s not a problem for me, but I know some people don’t like that.
The Walking Dead Double-Sided Pillowcase – Value $10?
This pillowcase is awesome, and I don’t even watch The Walking Dead! My sister is obsessed with it, though, so I think I will pass it on to her. This has the texture and size to make a good throw pillow (not a bed pillow).
The Walking Dead Charm Necklace – Value $15?
This necklace is hilarious! I’m actually wearing it today. The charms hit slightly below the throat.
Harry Potter Print – Value $2?
I am always glad when The Fan Empire includes things that my sons can enjoy, and the little one claimed this for his locker at school right away.
Supernatural FBI Magnet – Value $2.50?
Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about Supernatural in my house, but a magnet’s a magnet. Our fridge is starting to look pretty nerd-tastic with all these cool magnets! I just noticed the info card said we were supposed to get two, but we only got one. I will check in with customer service on this.
Harry Potter Dark Mark Tattoo – Value $1?
Does anyone know at what age children stop being obsessed with temporary tattoos? I’m guessing never? Anyway, this will go to good use, obviously.
Supernatural Keychain – Value $7?
Even though we are not really into Supernatural, this is still a pretty cool keychain. My older son nabbed it for his collection.
Verdict: The Fan Empire is a really fun subscription! Even though I am guessing on all of these values, I feel like the value MUST far outstrip the $18.45 purchase price of this box. I felt like the theme this month was kind of weak since good vs. evil is pretty much the foundation of all storytelling throughout history, but it was a nice way to include items from several different fandoms.
