Animal Mystery Box Welcome Box Review
This review is of the Welcome Mystery Box. Usually, boxes are themed around one animal, but this seems to be a bit of a sampler. This is the letter that was included in my package, detailing the contents.
Turtle Phone Holder and Earphone Winder - Retail Value $7.99, Listed Value $9.99
Y'all, I feel so stupid. I took this little guy out of the box and immediately assumed he was a tub toy and handed him to my nine-year-old. Now he is gone forever. It turns out, he's a really cool phone stand and earbud holder! He has suction cups all over the bottom, and you stick him to the back of your phone which allows your phone to stand! You can stand it in either landscape or portrait position. You can also flip his shell up and wind your earbuds around a central post, then flip the shell back down to keep your earbuds! That's so cool! I am so seriously bummed I will probably never see him again.
I absolutely love this necklace! I love the mixed colors, which I think is resin, but it's just gorgeous anyway. The chain is about 19" long with a 2" extender and is made from a lead and nickel free zinc alloy. My sister-in-law is a "Save the Turtles" person, so this would make an excellent gift for her, but I am tempted to keep it.
Owl Cotton Bag - Listed Value $14.95
I could not find this exact bag for sale in their shop or for sale online anywhere, so I am going with the listed value. This bag is so cute! It's just a basic cotton tote, but I love owls, and I love how colorful it is. I also love having the absolute cutest collection of reusable grocery bags, I make quite an impression at Publix, haha.
Dolphin Brooch - Listed Value $19.95
(For the same reasons as above with the bag, I am using the listed value here.) This brooch is so beautiful! I love it! This went straight onto one of my favorite jackets, where it will stay forever. I love dolphins! I canoed with them once, and it was magical. I believe this is the same composition as the necklace above - zinc alloy and resin.
This bracelet is so pretty! This is also made of resin and zinc allow. The chain is about 6.5" with a 2" extender. I am really loving the different colors on these pieces!
The Verdict: I am really impressed with my first package from Helping Animals at Risk! What a fun mystery box! I think the jewelry is so pretty and colorful! My favorite is clearly the dolphin pin. I am kicking myself over the turtle phone stand! In terms of value, the list prices total about $81, and the sale values are about $61, either of which is fantastic for a $24 box shipped. I am looking forward to my next package!
