The first box featured a good mix of minion and despicable me 3 items – timed with the movie.

You’ll receive an information card that details all of the items in your box.

Gru Industries Shirt – Value $15?

The summer box includes and exclusive Gru Industries shirt.

This licensed shirt is a 60/40 cotton/polyester blend. It’s very comfortable and the fit is perfect – and while I’ve seen a few different non-licensed versions of this logo, I’m liking the design on this one.

Lucky The Unigoat Vinyl Figure – Value $15-20?

Like their other vinyl figures, Filbert in The Nick Box, all of the Pusheen figures, and the Batman statue figure, this is really well-made and precise.

Lucky is about 4.5 inches tall and is one solid piece of vinyl – I think the Pusheen figures are a bit squishy – there’s none of that here, it’s got a great weight and a clear attention to detail.

Despicable Travel Bottle – Value $15?

This is an exclusive travel bottle for the box.

It’s pretty much a Swell water bottle – and it’s clearly heavy duty – it can take a hard fall!

Of course, it features Minions for you to take on the go!

Gru 5-Panel Cap – Value $10-15?

I can picture a minion or Gru wearing this 5-panel hat.

It’s got the Gru Industries logo front and center.

It does have some yellow highlights through the box and is fully adjustable to fit your head.

Minion Tape Dispenser – Value $15-20?

How fun is this? Show off your love for the Minions in your office with a double-sided tape dispenser.

The front will pop off to allow you to change tape – and it evens comes with some tape to get you started.

From there, you’ll just pull and tear the tape at both sides of the dispenser.

Banana Fanny Pack – Value $10-15?

First off:

banana minion


You’ll get a banana fanny pack for more Minions on-the-go!

It’s a polyester fiber fanny pack with two different pockets for storage.

Even better – you’ll get a little Minion zipper pal!

Despicable Journal – Value $10?

This is an 8.5 x 5.5 ruled journal featuring more Minions!

It has a subtle embossed “Testing 123” graphic on the front, too!

Inside, it has a nice graphic design to the opening and closing pages.

The pages are your typical ruled pages with a few little fun parts – a Minion at the bottom right of each page, and a banana page marker!

Despicable Key Charms – Value $10-15?

Spice up your keys with these cute little vinyl charms.

You’ll get a nice leather Gru Industries key chain – but also 3 little vinyl charms – choose to rock a Minion or go the more subtle approach with the cannon or banana.

Blueprint Poster – Value $10?

The last item in the box is an 11×7 mini poster – and what better than a blueprint for Despicable Me!

Get your Minion mission done right with this little blueprint.

Verdict: This follows other hit boxes from Culture Fly – and it definitely follows through with what we’ve grown to expect from them! Fans of Despicable Me and Minions will all find something to love in this box! Not only is the value there, but the quality of the items is really worth mentioning again – serious kudos to being able to pack so much good stuff for the cost! I can’t wait to see what’s next!

This box is still available and shipping now!

  1. Do you have spoilers for the fall box yet?

  2. I love everything! Especially the fanny pack haha. I’ve fallen in love with fanny packs this year. They’re perfect for the zoo and any activity that I want to do without schlepping my purse around.

  3. Love it! So creative! 🍌🍌🍌

  4. This box looks so fun!!! Just ordered it . Can’t wait thanks for coupon 😄

  5. Darn! Now I want this box! *Sigh*
    Im trying to cug off subs… Y.Y

    • *cut off….

  6. Pretty cute stuff but, I hate the include-a-figurine-in-every-box trend (not my thing, useless, no room). I will not subscribe to any boxes that include figurines as a regular feature. My guy hates the trend too.

    • We’re definitely opposites there – I LOVE an exclusive figure line…but I’m a collector of statues/figures so that makes sense 🙂

    • Yeah I know what you mean. I like some but not a huge collector. Good thing is you can always resell on ebay to someone who is, but is not willing to pay full box price for it. (Or didnt know about the box)

  7. I have a friend who adores Minions and also fanny packs. The two of us have Universal Studios annual passes just for the Despicable Me areas of the park. I had to immediately send her a link to subscribe. Will she get the Summer Box if she signs up today?

    • Yes – you’ll get this box as your first, and it should ship quickly!

    • We were just given a coupon, too – $8 off – MSASAVE8
