Quirky Crate May 2018 Box Review
The info card for the box lists out all of the products in the box on one side, then spotlights the month’s featured artist, Lazer Kitten, on the other.
This little pin is only about 1″ big, but it’s got a LOT of personality. It’s bright pink, covered in glitter, and even features a star and moon design around the cap. I love that this box always features a design by an indie artist (especially when those designs are so much fun)!
Quirky Crate Iron-On Patch – Listed Value $7.00
The color palette of this patch feels so fresh! I dig the desert motif and the pastel rainbow arching over the back of the scene. This patch is around 2″ big. I was thinking that maybe I’d iron it on over top of a not-as-cool logo on an old baseball hat I have. Instant on-trend dad hat!
Quirky Crate Moon Child Socks – Listed Value $8.00
Each box in this subscription comes with a pair of super cute socks. This month’s pair is positively dreamy, thanks to the pink and yellow crescent moons on their ankles. They remind me of Bedtime Bear from the Carebears. (I think his moon was blue, but the shape is the same!) They’re thinner socks, but that makes them a nice pick for summer. They’d look super cute under some sandals or chunky wooden platforms.
Lock Me Up Heart Lock and Key – Listed Value $4.50
This lock and key is just itching for a bright pink diary (Maybe with a squishy cover? Ooo, or a FUZZY one!) For now, I might use it on my jewelry box, or just loop it over a long chain like a charm on a pendant necklace. The pastel pink is so sweet! I don’t think it’s the sturdiest lock. (It’s the kind of thing you probably wouldn’t trust with snooping siblings back in your diary days.) But for aesthetics alone, it scores high marks from me!
Enamel Purse Charm – Listed Value $16.00
Hooray for soft-serve season! This charm will look sweet swinging from the strap of my purse. It’s got a nice weight to it, and I love the subtle sparkle of the hot pink tassel.
Computer Note Papers – Listed Value $3.50
How cute are these notes?! I wish I had a bright pink computer! You can either flip these small, sticky-note-sized papers over to leave a note on a blank side or scribble a message on the computer screen. I might just pin one up on my office corkboard as a cute bit of miniature art!
Streamline Owl Night Light – Retail Value $20.99, Listed Value $14.00
Aw, this 3″ tall owl has a little light inside it that adds a subtle glow to my hallway table. No more stumbling around in the dark for me! It’s also rather opaque so that it looks just as cute during daylight hours. It’s a functional and charming piece of decor!
Watermelon Purse – Listed Value $18.00
I am soooo wearing this to my next summer picnic! This faux leather watermelon slice bag is only about the size of a bigger makeup bag—it holds my giant phone and clunky keys, but not a whole lot else (partially because the half-moon shape is a little limiting). But it’s so darn cute that I’ll happily reserve it for special occasions when I’m not looking to tote around a lot of odds and ends.
The Verdict: I’m always such a fan of this box. Are all of the items the highest quality things in the world? Eh, no not really. Are they the most useful? Mmm… sometimes. But do they bring a smile to my face? Unquestionably, yes! For me, this box is the definition of a treat-yourself subscription. It’s fun and playful and sweet, and I look forward to getting it in a way I don’t always eagerly await other boxes. I can’t wait to wear my new purse out and about, and I’m excited to figure out where to put my new pin and patch!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Order soon to get the May box! Order by the 13th of the month to get that month’s box. Boxes ship of the 15th of each month.
Value Breakdown: This box cost $40.94 (price + US shipping) and has an estimated value of $89.99. That value total relies on a lot of listed values rather than ones found online, so take it with a grain of salt. Another way to look at it is that given the cost of the box, each of the 10 items has an average value of $5.12.
