This month’s theme is “Play Pretend”. With Halloween at the end of October, it seems like a fitting concept. Let’s see what Craftly has up its sleeve…
Wow! I’m always intrigued by the array of items Craftly includes in their boxes. They touch a lot of different categories, from home to art and beyond. From the looks of it, they’re at it again!
Game of Phones – Value $20.00
From what I can tell, Game of Phones is kind of like Apples to Apples meets a scavenger hunt through the photos and other data hiding on your phone. Pick cards with different assignments, like “Find the best #selfie,” and see which player comes up with the best digital goods. I like this idea for the same reason it makes me skeptical. We do so much with our phones, why not have a game about them? But at the same time… man, do I need another reason to glorify my phone?
Unplugged Goods Twistable Laces – Value $11.06
The photo on these “laces” suggests using them on headphone cords, but these are headed straight for the bundle of wires running between my router and cable box! I hate clunky, cumbersome wires more than anything, and these bendy, shoelace-inspired takes on the classic twist-tie are sure to come in handy.
Mokuyobi It’s Always Banana Time Patch – Value $6.00
Is this a common saying? A catchphrase of some sort? I have no idea. But I really dig bananas, so I’ve got no reason to say this little patch isn’t worthy of a backpack or a jacket sleeve. It’s pretty nicely stitched, too, with a hint of a sheen to it. Healthy eaters, rejoice.
Wintercroft Mask – Value $5.49
This is an unexpected find for sure. On the flip side of this card is a code to input in the Wintercroft site to get a downloadable mask pattern. You then use the pattern to create and build a polygon-style mask. It’s artful, yet minimalist, easy to access, yet super unique. I love the look of these masks and the creativity they can inspire. What a cool option for your next costume party!
Verdict: Craftly seems like it’s gunning for the title of coolest box, and it’s definitely gaining ground. I couldn’t have expected any of the items that were included, and I love that they’re made by smaller, lesser-known vendors. Plus, the value of the box was about $43.00—that’s about $18.00 over the $25.00 price of the box itself, and perfectly in line with the $40.00 value Craftly guarantees every month. Again, very, very cool.
What do you think of this month’s Craftly box? Do you dig the theme?
