This is my first time reviewing In Your Case, so I’m eager to see what they’ve included in this pack for kids and teens. No info card came with it, so I’ll be scouring the internet to find values if I can.
Canvas Color-In Tote with Markers – Value $0.99?
First up is a small canvas tote bag with pink nylon handles that comes with four colorful markers use color on this princess scene. I based the value off of a similar product I linked to above.
They’ve included red, blue, magenta, and green markers. I tried it out, and the markers color on the canvas really easily without bleeding.
The tote measures about eight inches square and is blank on the back.
Classroom 3D Pop-Up Labels
Next, there are some stickers, presumably for notebooks or textbooks with space to write your child’s name, grade, and subject.
You get one sheet of 12 stickers that include all different designs.
The flowers, butterflies, mushrooms, snails, and caterpillars are a little puffy to make them more 3D. Some have metallic silver accents set on top of the other bright colors.
Sweet Treat Pencil Case
I usually get pretty excited for pencil cases, but this one is a little too childish for me to enjoy for myself. It’s made of a sort of faux leather and is almost nine inches long and three inches wide. It has a pink zipper with a metal zipper pull.
The bottom of the pouch features an unidentified sweet treat of sorts, surrounded by others that vaguely resemble Hershey Kisses.
It fits the two pens I also received!
I’ve been receiving a lot of donut-related items lately, and I’m not mad about it. This one has a light pink body and cap, and it’s topped off with a rubbery pink donut with multi-colored sprinkles.
Om nom nom!
Bio Rainbow Ink Pen
I really love rainbow pens, and this is the second I’ve gotten in recent months from a subscription box.
There is something I like about the squared off pen cap. Maybe it’s the fact that it will keep it from rolling off my desk?
The ink is of the smooth gel variety, and though multi-colored, only writes in one color at a time. Once you get through this blue, the green-to-yellow ink will begin!
Macaron Erasers, Set of 5 – Value $4.95
Well, aren’t these a sight for sore eyes? These brightly colored macarons are making my sweet tooth tingle, but I musn’t eat them!
Each eraser is 1.25 inches in diameter. They come in pink, green, yellow, blue, and orange (all with “chocolate” filling).
Donut Masking Tape – Value $2.99
More donut stuff!! The packaging says masking tape, but I know it more simply as “washi tape”. I ‘donut’ think I have any washi tape with these tasty delights on them, so I am happy to have them!
There are all sorts of colors and flavors adorning this otherwise white tape.
Eeek! Do you see the one with the face??
He Dao Black Notebook
Black paper can be really fun to write on with the right tool. This little string-bound notebook features a simple silver metallic night sky with stars and the moon.
“Such a beautiful night” is also written in silver ink.
Lucky for me, they included that great rainbow pen that looks awesome against a black background! What do you think I’m daydreaming about?
Color-In Puzzle with Markers
Lastly, they’ve included a puzzle that you or your child can color in with three markers included.
I like the purple, teal, and magenta colors they chose here.
There is a decent amount of detail here, so it’s bound to keep your little one busy for quite a while.
Verdict: While I don’t have any kids or tweens in my life, In Your Case was still pretty enjoyable to me as an adult as well. The black notebook, washi tape, and pens where totally up my alley, but I can see kids getting down with the items you can color in! The macaron erasers were also really cute, and overall I think it’s a pretty good value for only $19.99. I did total up what I could find online, which equals about $8.93, with five items remaining that I couldn’t find. Taking the total cost of the box after shipping and tax, and dividing it by the number of items inside (nine), I figure each item is worth about $3.19, which seems likely enough.
