This is the info card that came with the package, detailing its contents.
Sweathogs Rhapsody Exclusive T-Shirt - Value $15?
I love this mashup so much! Of course, I watched "Welcome Back, Kotter" as a kid, and loved it, even though in retrospect it was a pretty awful show. And the design is a reference to the Queen album, which I still love! How funny!
Space Invaders Blind Box Plush - Value $10.99
Space Invaders is still one of my all-time favorite video games! It was really hard, wasn't it? I played it obsessively when we finally got it.
This is also our Fun Fact item of the month. Retro Pop Box always comes up with the most interesting tidbits!
Recipe Card Set - Value $5?
This is another exclusive item, so I'm guessing at the value. I don't think I will ever use paper recipe cards now that Pinterest exists, but these definitely make me nostalgic for my Mom's kitchen. The pictures, though! They totally remind me of this website which made me laugh way too hard.
Clackers - Value $9.95
I vaguely remember these from olden times, but I don't think I had any as a child. That may be because...
...they are extremely dangerous? I thought maybe it was because you could hit someone with them really hard, which is true, but it turns out the original ones used to sometimes shatter. Ouch!
Here they are in lame action. I couldn't video them and work them properly at the same time, so this is just a taste of their amazing clacking powers.
TV Dinner Post-It Pad - Value $1?
This Thanksgiving season, I am so grateful that I never have to eat one of these again. This is actually a relatively appetizing looking TV dinner, there were many others that did not appear as scrumptious. I am also thankful that my mother prepared these for us exactly one time in my entire youth. Once was plenty.
Verdict: I love my 1970's Retro Pop Box so much! Every month is awesome! I think they did a great job curating around the holiday this month, and it makes me really curious to see what's on deck for December. The value of everything this month totals about $41, which is dynamite for a $25 box!
