Pusheen Box Winter 2017 Review

Pusheen Winter 2017 Info card Pusheen Winter 2017 info card with contents

Each box includes an info card that lists the contents.

Pusheen Winter 2017 Vinyl Figure in box

Pusheen Vinyl Figure

The first item is one that ALWAYS comes in each shipment: a vinyl figure!

Pusheen Winter 2017 Vinyl Figure

This time she is covered in holiday lights!! I like that they are pastel pinks, teals, and yellows. Who are you winking at, Pusheen?? Me??

back of Pusheen Winter 2017 Vinyl Figure

I love the little detail of the plug for the lights being on the back. Pusheen happens to have the loveliest measurements at 3.5 inches wide by 2.5 inches tall. SWOON!

Pusheen Winter Mug in box

Pusheen Ceramic Mug, 18 oz.

Like almost everything in the box- even the packaging for the items is cute.

Pink Pusheen Winter Mug

This pink mug has a festive snowy scene with Pusheen and her #1 pal Stormy building snowmen outside while draped in scarves. OMG, THEY MADE SNOW VERSIONS OF EACH OTHER! YOU TWO!

back of Pink Pusheen Winter Mug

The back of the mug is more simple with snow on the ground and flakes falling.

Looking inside Pink Pusheen Winter Mug

Did I mention the mug is HUGE? 18 ounces is no joke! This should hold enough coffee, tea, or hot cocoa to keep you warm all morning or evening.

Pusheen Winter Pin Set on card

Pusheen Winter Pins, Set of 4

The gang is all here on an adorable background card with a big ol' snowy tree.

Pusheen Winter Pin Set

There's Pusheen in a yellow hat and teal striped scarf (I'm dying from cuteness), Stormy in what I think is a beret with a pompom and a yellow bow (kill me with cuteness), plus a present to go under the tree and a star for the top!! I'm so excited to add all of these to my enamel pin collection!

Pusheen USB Mug Warmer in box

Pusheen USB Powered Mug Warmer

Perfect for winter mornings at your office or when you are WFH (working from home).

back of Pusheen USB Mug Warmer box

All the deets you need are listed on the back.

Pusheen USB Mug Warmer

The warmer has Pusheen's sweet face looking up at you and the cord is a soft pink and almost 40 inches long. This is an excellent item for me since I get distracted at work and end up forgetting about my coffee until it's cold. Instead of putting it in the microwave, you can just keep it warm by setting it on this 3-inch diameter warmer.

3/4 view of Pusheen USB Mug Warmer

You can plug it straight into the USB port on your computer, or use a wall adapter you have lying around to plug it into a wall outlet (if you're like me and have a laptop that isn't equipped with a USB port). It gets quite toasty, so don't forget to unplug it once you're done using it.

Pusheen USB Mug Warmer in use

Pusheen is slightly larger than the heating pad itself at about 5 inches from the bottom to tops of her ears. The included mug just happens to fit perfectly on it!

Set of 4 Pusheen Holiday Sticky Notes

Pusheen Holiday Sticky Notes, Set of 4

I am always writing "notes to self" as reminders to do something or another and these little sticky notes are perfect for doing just that.

3/4 view of Set of 4 Pusheen Holiday Sticky Notes

Here we have a yellow and blue present, Pusheen peeking out of a red stocking, Pusheen in a Santa hat, and a plump Christmas Tree. The largest sticky notes are roughly 3 inches high and the smaller ones are around 2 inches.

Pusheen LED Charging Cord in box

Pusheen LED Charging Cable

At first, I thought this was a cute little string of lights for your desk...

back of Pusheen LED Charging Cord box

But then I read "charging cable" and was like "huh"?

Pusheen LED Charging Cord

This is the COOLEST phone charger I have ever seen!!!

close up of Pusheen LED Charging Cord

Each rubbery light is a mini Pusheen that alternates teal, pink, and yellow colors on a clear string.

ends of Pusheen LED Charging Cord with adapter

One end has a USB port to plug into your computer or a wall adapter, and the other actually comes with two different plugs (micro USB and lighting) for whichever corresponding phone you have! What a great idea!

Pusheen LED Charging Cord plugged into iPhone

Here it is plugged into my iPhone 7. Works great!

Pusheen LED Charging Cord lit up

And here it is once plugged in and charging my phone! Ahhhhh!!

Pusheen Head Massager in box

Pusheen Head Massager

I've seen these head massagers for years but never ended up buying one. Now I know that was a smart move since I now own the cutest Pusheen one!!

side of Pusheen Head Massager box

Directions are on the side of the (super cute) packaging.

Pusheen Head Massager

It consists of a handle with flexible wires coming out of it that have little plastic nubs on the end.

close up of top of Pusheen Head Massager

Hi, Pusheen!

close up of bottom of Pusheen Head Massager

It's best to slightly open the wires while sliding it onto the top of your melon. Then you just use the handle to push it up and down to give yourself a little massage! It's actually quite a nice feeling, but be warned that it WILL mess up your hair. 😉

Pusheen Winter Sweatshirt

Pusheen Holiday Sweatshirt

I really get into sweatshirts from about September-May. It's all I wear, even though they are usually a boring grey.

close up of Pusheen Winter Sweatshirt

This bright teal number has a classic "sweater" design in white, with teal, pink, and yellow holiday treats all over it and Pusheen and Stormy bopping around.

inside of Pusheen Winter Sweatshirt

It's not super thick, but the inside is amazingly soft and makes the perfect item of clothing to lounge in over the holidays.

Pusheen Winter Sweatshirt on model

This is the medium on me. Per usual, the sleeves are quite long and it has sort of an oversized fit to it (or at least unisex). It's also quite long, so I tucked it in so my torso doesn't get totally lost.

Pusheen Plush in winter outfit

Pusheen Winter Outfit Plush

I cannot get over that little hat on her! The knitted beanie with the tiny pompom that is only covering one of her ears?! I can't!!

back of Pusheen Plush in winter outfit

Her pink sweater with teal trim is also just too much, but I like that it matches the sweatshirt (at least in color) that came in the box so that we can be twinsies! Plus- look at that tiny tail.

close up of Pusheen Plush in winter outfit

One last look at that tiny hat! Squeeeeee!

Verdict: The Winter Pusheen Box is just so freaking RAD!! I was freaking out as I was unpacking it. I think they REALLY hit it out of the park this season with some useful and totally unbelievably cute Pusheen items. They are all also totally exclusive to the box, which is awesome! It's so hard to pick a favorite among the nine items I received, but I think I'll have to go with the light up charger because it's just so unique and absurd! The pin set is great, the mug is HUGE, the mug warmer is a perfect winter item, and the sweatshirt is crazy soft. And the tiny hat on the plush?! C'mon!

My box finally arrived in Tulsa, after being accepted at the Los Angeles USPS facility on the 19th. It must have taken the scenic route. I guess I’ll get it tomorrow.

My box was damaged in two different places, that was not okay…..Lucky for me, none of the items inside were damaged. 🙁 🙁 I like to keep my boxes. Looks like someone definitely mishandled it

I was holding my breath wondering if I was going to get the box on time. I got mine on 12/23. While I do think the items are cute, I think winter 2016’s box was better. Some of the items (as cute as they are!) are things I will never use. The phone charger doesn’t fit my phone, I will never use the head massager or the pins/magnets. The items look cheaper than they used to. I adore Pusheen but at $50 plus a box, I don’t think its something I can continue to subscribe to sadly.

l received my box yesterday. Has anyone looked at their mug? The decal on mine looks all scratched up and I’m a little embarrassed to gift it. Does anyone else’s mug look like this?

Reply ButtonReply


I’m so disappointed! The box was supposed to arrive today (in time for Christmas!) but now it says my package is scheduled for the 27th!!!

I love Pusheen box but I wish they would time their boxes better. Fall got here almost too late for fall, and now the Christmas themed box will be after Christmas! Instead of a long wait for the spring box, maybe send out boxes earlier in their season (or make the Christmas one more of a general winter theme) :/

Reply ButtonReply


Yes I recieved mine today also! It was extremely dissapointing. I guess there is always next year to use all my cute holiday stuff :(.

I just received my Pusheen Box and fully opened it a few minutes ago. I was excited, especially for the mug. That was going to be my favorite item out of the whole box!

But…that is not the case now.

I opened my box, and the first thing I see is the card ripped. Not a big deal, it’s just a card I throw away anyway. Then I move on to the head massager cause I’ve never used one and was very curious. I take it out of the box immediately only to realize the handle is full of deep scratches and dents…

The last item I open is the mug, I saved it for last on purpose. I was a bit worried it’d be shattered and was a little scared to open it. I open it and sigh in relief, it’s all in one piece! I turn it around only to see it misprinted, stretched, and full of scratches all over it.

I’m very, very upset. On the fall box I was disappointed with the items and quality but this this hits an all time low. ~$50 (including shipping) for this box and this is what I get? They don’t have better quality control for a box this expensive?

The last two items I will address is ones I’m not even sure are defects or just their horrible quality control. My vinyl’s whiskers…mis-painted. Also I see they did them a bit different than the past whiskers. They look cheaper to be frank. The other I’m unsure of is the mug warmer. Usually they don’t have bumps, right? Mine does. But again I’m not even sure anymore if it is a defect or their “design”.

This is my last Pusheen Box. I love Pusheen, I really do…but at ~$50 a box and this is what I get quality wise…it’s ridiculous! The only thing I’m happy about right now is at least the sweater isn’t horrible material like the fall box’s one is.

Side note: Was anyone else thinking there’d be gingerbread? I thought that’d be in the box for sure because of the cover photo.

Same thing with my mug and the warmer 🙁

Reply ButtonReply


You aren’t alone. My products arrived defected as well. I unfortunately cancelled my sub.

Honestly i don’t even use most products they give. Notepads? Pins? The charging cord doesnt even work for my phone. And they sent me the wrong size for the sweater – not like it matters since they are always so so long. I guess thats what you get when the box has printed “MADE IN CHINA” in big bold letters on the side.

So far i’m excited for the mug! I’ve always wanted some cute sticky notes too.

A little disappointed with the phone charger because it seems too impractical unless i was just leaving my phone alone to charge and never brought it anywhere. Also if they (apple) change the plug again in the future it will be totally useless :/

Also i’m confused on why they chose the head massager in this box. I’m not going to say much about it yet cause i’ve never used one…but I will find out tomorrow when my Pusheen Box arrives!

For the sticky notes part where it says:
“Here we have a yellow and blue present, Stormy peeking out of a red stocking, Pusheen in a Santa hat, and a plump Christmas Tree.”

Pusheen is the one peeking out of the red stocking, not Stormy.

When I first saw the spoilers, I was just kind of Meh, but after reading your review, I’ve evolved into a “Hell YEAH!”

Stumbled upon your box review and it too made me want to do the box xD. Figured I’d do a full year and pay in full. Which, wow was not expecting tax. Always a killer there.

S’good thing you don’t do the surprise box reviews, then we’d all be in trouble xD!


Kudos to you as a reviewer. Your enthusiasm made the box a whole lot better compared to when the contents were fully spoiled. I’m almost surprised Culturefly don’t send this box to you guys for free as it’ll help a LOT with their marketing/setting up hype for an upcoming box.

Marne Orenich

Thank you, both! Pusheen is just too darn cute to not get excited about. I think CultureFly does a really good job making sure the items are a great quality too.

Reply ButtonReply


I agree completely with this sentiment– I went from reading the spoiler and wondering if this was a good present for my child, to reading the review and being so excited for him to see it!

Reply ButtonReply


I kind of want the first vinyl figure because Mr. Kitty had to have his left eye removed and now he permanently looks like he is winking. So I would have something that would match him!

Reply ButtonReply

Marne Orenich

Oh no, Mr. Kitty! I bet he’d love a similar friend around!

Reply ButtonReply


This is a super cute box! I ordered it for my 7 year old for Christmas and I know he will love it! My box shipped Monday and I really appreciate they sent it priority mail so it arrives before Christmas. Way better than all the rest of my subscription boxes, that shipped Newgistics and 80% have yet to reach me.

Am I the only one who has yet to get a shipping notification?

Reply ButtonReply


Have you checked your account? I never got a notification, but I logged in and and the tracking number was linked to my order detail. It was sent on the 19th and arrived today, the 22nd.

Reply ButtonReply


Nope, nothing still. Still waiting on a response from them.

Jennifer S

I have not either. I emailed them and they responded back that the label had been created but it hadn’t gone out yet. I will NT be receiving mine in time for Christmas.

NOT a happy camper at all.

Reply ButtonReply


I haven’t received notification, either.

Reply ButtonReply


Email them. They were fast to respond to me. Mine was shipped 2 day and came tonight.


Would love to swap for a mug and mug warmer for a gift set. I have a feeling they will be super hard to swap for. LOVE the box!

Reply ButtonReply


Depending on how it is then I wouldn’t mind swapping.

Reply ButtonReply


Thanks for such a great review!! My daughter will be thrilled with everything 😍🎁 Love all the pics but the fact that your excitement comes through makes it fun to read as well. I am so glad that they managed to ship this box priority mail so it would be able to sit under the tree. She is so cute all tangled in the lights I won’t even wrap her in paper, just toss a bunch of bows and ribbon to make it look like she was playing in the those as well;)

The cord seems to light up once you plug it into a usb port. This same for everyone? Was hoping it light up only while charging…

Reply ButtonReply


My favorite box ever (I subscribed this fall)
I love everything. The sweater is big on me so I can wear it with tights. The mug and warmer are so cute and I will use them so much. I already plugged the lights in. I’ll swap or sell the head massager. The vinyl and plush! ♥️♥️♥️Her tiny paws!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Adorable! I reeeeeeeeeally want that sweatshirt!! Anyone swapping a L or XL?! Please consider me! I linked my profile to my name; I’ve got lots unlisted too!

Reply ButtonReply


My box comes on Friday! I cannot wait to get my hands on these cuties!

Reply ButtonReply


A mug warmer? I didn’t know that I needed such a thing…but I can’t wait to get mine now!!!

Reply ButtonReply


I almost wish the items were a little less seasonal. I wore my fall sweatshirt three days ago, but this sweater has a pretty limited lifespan, as do the sticky notes, and pins. They scream Christmas rather than winter.
