Disney Princess Pley Box Subscription Review – March 2017
This is the first ever official Disney Princess Subscription Box! Pley teamed up with Disney to create this bimonthly subscription box for kids. Each box will include 4-8 Disney products (apparel, accessories, toys, etc.).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Disney Princess PleyBox
The Cost: $24.99 + $5 Shipping (Box ships every other month)
The Products: Each magical box contains: 4-8 official Disney products (apparel, figurines, fashion accessories and goodies!), a magazine with a princess story and activities, and most charmingly a DYI activity of transforming the shipping box into a playable scene (for example, the box transforms into an elaborate castle that your child can build and then color-in). The retail value of the items in the box is ~$50
Good to know: First boxes are shipped on March 10th 2017 and all boxes will arrive by March 17th. Subsequent boxes will arrive between the the 20th-28th of the month, on a bi-monthly calendar. Signup early so you don’t miss out!

Each box comes with an activity book.
It includes instructions for turning the box into a castle!
A story, details on the items included, and activities, too.
There’s also a page advertising more items you can buy to “transform into Belle.”
Now, onto the goodies!
Belle Princess Tiara – Value $15
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this tiara! I was expecting it to be a plastic item, but it’s metal, and the detail work is quite good, too!
It has jewels, sparkles, gold, and an encased gold rose on the front!
Belle Text Art T-Shirt – Value $17
I love the adorable artwork on this tee! And some of the printed ink is accented with sparkles! The material itself is a soft, slubbed jersey knit. And it is a little sheer – you’ll need to layer. (88% Polyester/12% Cotton.)
(FYI – the entire set of figures in this box is identical to this $15 set – it just didn’t come in the same packaging.)
(These figures measure up to 4 inches high.)
Mrs. Potts with Chip and Footstool Figure
For the most part, the detail paint on these figures is pretty good. They were shipped in a plastic bag – not any type of protective case that would keep them from knocking into each other. So, as you can see on Mrs. Potts, there are some scuff marks already. (I imagine they will look a little worse for wear with play time!)
Lumiere with Cogsworth Figure
(These figures are Plastic/PVC)
Lastly, we have everything we need to turn the box into a castle! (The tower parts were shipped inside the box, the rest is from the box itself.)
This was pretty easy to put together, but you’ll need tape to hold the roof in place. (And I’d recommend coloring it in before you build it.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $47. (I’m not assigning any value to the castle, but I think it is a great bonus activity.) The cost is $29.99, so I think that value is good for $47 worth of Disney merchandise. If subscription boxes existed when I was a kid – this would be my favorite box ever!
What do you think of the first Disney Princess Pley Box? Are you going to see the live action movie this weekend?
