This is the info card that came with the package, detailing its contents.
Close Encounters Ugly Holiday Sweater Exclusive T-Shirt – Value $15?
How perfect is this tee? I totally needed a tee with Close Encounters completely depicted in ugly Christmas sweater form! I actually really love all the ugly Christmas sweater designs (of everything!) that appear this time of year.
Star Wars Wooden Blocks – Value $3.68 USD
Haha! This is a reference to the absolute worst thing that has ever happened in the history of television (in 1978). And here it is.
Bing & Bowie Coaster – Value $5?
This is another exclusive item, so I’m guessing at the value. This little cloth coaster is so awesome! It’s a depiction of the music video for “Little Drummer Boy,” a duet that Bing Crosby and David Bowie performed on Bing Crosby’s Christmas Special that aired in 1977. I loved both of them.
This is also our Fun Fact item of the month. It makes me sad to read that it was such a difficult experience for them because this song is one of my favorite holiday tunes.
Santa Claus is Coming to Town Wrapping Paper – Value $5?
It’s another Retro Pop Box Exclusive! I have to admit that I’m kind of glad they no longer show this Christmas Special during the holidays. It scared me when I was a little kid! Claymation was so creepy.
Plastic Slinky – Value $1?
It’s a slinky! My eight-year-old grabbed this up and started playing with it immediately, so I guess it’s never really lost its odd appeal. I told him the ones in the 70’s were made of metal and were mainly good for ripping your arm and leg hair out accidentally. He laughed pretty hard at that.
Verdict: I love my 1970’s Retro Pop Box so much! Every month is awesome, but their holiday curation last month and this have been truly excellent. The value of everything this month totals about $30, but my estimates may be off. It clears the cost of the box, so I’m happy.
