There's info on the products on the back. This box has 6 items inside, which is one more than last month!
Exclusive Seinfeld Vandelay Industries Tee - Value $15?
Every box comes with an exclusive t-shirt nods to a different iconic '90s reference. This month, I was stoked to see a Seinfeld reference! I love that this tee gives George Costanza's fake business a logo—and that I get to wear the logo around on a cool tee! I'm not so keen on the cap sleeves of this fitted women's tee, but I'll suffer with them if it means I get to sport this Seinfeld reference around!
Magic Eye Postcard - Value $1.00?
I couldn't find this exact design online, so I linked to something similar. I was wild about Magic Eye books when I was little, so this is a great blast from the past! Stare intently at this pretty pattern, then keep your eyes focused as you draw the pattern farther away, and a secret image will emerge. Sounds easy, but it takes a few tries (and maybe a little headache or two).
After a few rounds of staring deep into this rose pattern, I saw a heart emerge in the design! What a cool twist on a traditional Valentine's Day card.
Pink Stretchy Choker - Value $2.90
Can you believe this '90s staple accessory is actually back in style? I've seen them at the mall and even on some cool teens strolling through town. I can't find my old chokers, so lucky I have this pink one to turn to!
The Little Mermaid Scratch and Sniff Stickers, Set of Two - Value $2.50?
I couldn't find this sticker design so I linked to a similar sticker set. I wasn't the biggest Little Mermaid fan growing up (I had brown hair, so of course, I was more of a Belle gal), but it was nice to see Ariel and Flounder's familiar faces!
These stickers have a sweet, candy watermelon scent to them. Fresh out of the package, they didn't need to be scratched for me to pick up on the scent. I forgot about the era of everything being scented, so these stickers were a fun trip down memory lane!
Looney Tunes Magnets, Set of 4 - Value $11.98
I'm always on the hunt for more good magnets, and I love these Looney Tunes designs. They're simple in their shape, and even in the way the minimalist way the characters are drawn.
They have a good bit of stick to them, as well! I'm always happy to get items that are practical AND playful!
Fruit Stripe Gum, Pack of 17 Sticks - Value $1.50
I've mentioned in previous reviews that I'm not a big gum fan, but that doesn't mean I don't see this gum as an '90s icon!
This gum has a zebra-stripe pattern (and a zebra mascot to match).
The best part is that the wrapper has tattoos on it! Just wet your skin and press these zebra design down firmly onto it for a few seconds.
Verdict: The items in this box provided a great trip down memory lane! I liked that there were some useful items in the box, too—not that I don't love getting fun ephemera, too, but I always love knowing that things like the magnets and postcards won't wind up in the junk drawer. The value is almost $35.00 based on my estimates, which is comfortably above the $20.00 cost (even after I add the $7.50 required for shipping).
