Laserbrain Patch Co April 2018 Review

chupacabra coloring page

Each month you’ll see a small coloring page/postcard in your bubble mailer that fits the theme. This one features a terrifying illustration of Chupacabra.

On the reverse side, you’ll get to read all about what’s included and how it pertains to the theme. This month highlights some of the scariest Folklore tales from around the world.

Baba Yaga’s House Patch – Listed Retail Value $9.00

I’ve heard of Baba Yaga but am not all that familiar with her story. A quick google image search produced some unsettling imagery of the witch-like supernatural woman who dwells deep in the forest and lives in a hut filled with personality that has enormous chicken legs that allow it to move about. The hut is also surrounded by a fence made of bones and topped with skulls to make it even more ominous. I love the olive green, deep orange, and yellow color palette they used in this four-inch high iron-on patch as well.

Bigfoot Enamel Pin – Listed Retail Value $9.00

Whoa, this is a super cool pin and I’m not even that into Bigfoot. It’s 1.25 inches high and has a cool outdoor scene within its silhouette revealing a red sky, a mountain, and green pine trees. One of my best friends is really into Bigfoot (Cryptozoology in general) and loves camping, so this is the perfect gift for me to send her out in Los Angeles.

Bloody Mary Pocket Mirror mirror side of Bloody Mary Pocket Mirror

Bloody Mary Pocket Mirror – Listed Retail Value $2.00

This two-inch pocket mirror can be used to summon Bloody Mary (by repeating her name three times) or to glimpse into your future as you walk up the stairs backward to see who you’ll end up marrying (unless it’s a skeleton, in which case you’ll die before it happens)! I certainly remember trying the former whilst at sleepover parties in elementary school to give myself and friends a good scare.

Mothman Lip Balm – Listed Retail Value $4.00

Even though I’ve watched and am completely terrified of the movie The Mothman Prophecies, I completely forgot about the relevance of this “chapstiiick” until I read the info card. If you don’t mind a bit of a fright (or potential spoilers), check out the scene from the movie in which this lip balm from Wild Rose got its origin. Handmade in Oregon, this Peppermint & Basil formula moisturizes your lips while giving it a little tingle, not unlike the one I get down my spine when I watch that movie clip.

Verdict: Laserbrain Patch Co. has been killin’ it lately! I really liked this month’s Folklore theme and thought they chose really interesting and scary characters from some familiar tales. I think the bigfoot pin is the best item, but the patch is also well done and the mirror and lip balm will definitely come in handy. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but order now to receive May (the theme is “Owl Post”)!

Billing is on the last day of the month. Shipping is usually 16-20th.

  1. Even though Russian parents sometimes use Baba Yaga to scare their children a bit (when they misbehave), most of times Baba Yaga is outsmarted by the good guys in fairy tales 🙂 In fact lots of times she’s portrayed in a humorous way.
    I recommend a Russian fairy tale movie called “Morozko” (aka “Jack Frost” aka “Father Frost”) , easy to find on YouTube with English subs. That movie is considered a classic in Russian cinematography and kids love it. You can definitely see Baba Yaga there 🙂

  2. Ooh I’m really digging that Baba Yaga patch! I remember hearing about Baba Yaga as a kid and being very mesmerized with that tale!

  3. THESE PATCHES ARE SO COOL!!!!
