In Your Case January 2018 Review
This month’s theme: space! (And cute critters, apparently, judging by the occasional animal found on a few of this month’s items. Maybe we can just chalk up January’s theme to the wonders of the natural world, eh?)
Outer Space Pen/Pencil Pack and Bookmark Clip – Estimated Value $1.50 USD per piece (value based on similar items)
So dang adorable! I love the rubbery decals in this colorful set. The blue bookmark clip stars a simple paper clip design and a ponytail-sporting alien, while the black gel pen features an orange, brown, and taupe Saturn tchotchke atop its lid. There are two lead pencils, (one says “Reach for the Stars” and the other says “Out of This World!), but my favorite piece in this set is the yellow light-up pen, which flashes and glows as you write!
“Nikki Strange” Celestial Notebook – Estimated Value $7.06 USD (value based on a similar item)
“My Time to Shine” is emblazoned in gold across the starry cover of this navy-blue notebook. Each page is lined, which makes it perfect for journaling, daydreams, and doodles.
Outer Space Eraser Set – Estimated Value $6.90 USD
More galactic desk pals! This trio of quirky erasers is an out-of-this-world way spice up your desk supplies. Each lil’ guy is just under 1.5 inches long, and they all feature bright primary colors on their (surprisingly effective!) eraser surfaces. A heads up: the tip of the rocket seemed to be a little precariously fastened, so erase gently when using this piece.
Solar System Stickers Scenes – Buy a 14-pack for $2.99 USD
The large, starry backdrop on this sticker set could stand to be a little more vibrant, but the individual stickers that accompany it are vivid and bright. I’d have more fun placing the rocket and planet stickers on the cover of my notebook, rather than sticking ‘em on the larger space sticker!
“Miss Me” Outer Space Sticky Notes – Retail Value $2.25 USD
These are a playful twist on Post-It notes. Featuring 4 ringed planets orbiting the earth, these circular sticky notes would be awesome to jot ideas on while reading! Being able to stick each note inside pages as you read would be a handy way to help little ones keep their ideas organized.
POP-UP 3D Greeting Card – Retail Value $3.68 USD
The dancing, dapper fox on this stationery set seems a little out of place in the context of the box’s outer-space theme, but its cute factor more than makes up for that! This 3D card is wonderfully detailed and beautifully illustrated. I love the fox’s little top hat, and the yellow and purple pop-up butterflies hovering nearby add to its charm! The green-and-white striped envelope contrasts nicely with the woodland design, too.
“Decorate Your Life” Washi Tape – Retail Value $2.59 USD
Although I don’t have many uses in mind for it, this jellyfish-patterned Washi tape is one of my favorite parts of the In Your Case box! The 15mm x 7m roll provides a substantial amount of masking tape, and iridescent jellyfish illustrations atop a dark-blue adhesive base can add a tasteful touch of color to any arts and craft project.
Verdict: I can absolutely see how a child’s eyes would light up upon opening this stationery box. I’m so glad the box isn’t packed with only sticker sheets like so many other stationery boxes are! The pens and erasers are all high quality, and I can see them costing double the price if I were to shop for pieces as ornate as these in stores. In Your Case is packed with color and imagination-sparking materials. My only critique would be a bit more consistency when it comes with sticking to theme each month.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, though although In Your Case does sometimes sell past boxes on their site shop. Order before the 15th of each month to receive the current month’s box!
Value Breakdown: This box cost me $29.99 + $8.75 shipping and taxes, which means that each of the 7 sets of items in the box has an average cost of $5.53.
