Pusheen Box Summer 2018 Review

Each box includes an info card that lists the contents. This season they’ve included eight items.

Surfer Pusheen Vinyl Figure

The first thing I get excited about it the vinyl figure that comes in each box. This time, our girl is on a surfboard riding a wave while sporting cool sunglasses! It doesn’t get much cuter than this, amirite?

Pusheen Paper Straws

Paper straws have been popular for a while now but are gaining even more momentum because of the attention the harm that plastic straws are doing to the environment. I don’t know about you, but I switch to cold brew coffee as soon as it gets above 70 degrees, so I’m in need of some eco-friendly straws when I’m sipping my cold bevvies. There are three different designs in the pack that have five straws each for a total of 15. Pusheen is enjoying an ice cream cone on the yellow one, and appears in her “Pushseenicorn” form on the blue and pinks ones with rainbows, ice cream cones, and gemstones!

Pusheen Drink Float

Pool floats are widely popular in subscription boxes come summer, and smaller drink holder versions also seem to be all the rage. I can’t get over how cute the design of this one is! Pusheen is floating on her back with her four little paws facing upwards while her belly has a place to put your can of soda or frosty cocktail as you relax in the pool. I don’t partake in public pools or know anyone with one, sadly, so I won’t get too much use of it but gosh darn if it isn’t super adorbs!

Pusheenicorn Pot

This is the first time I have encountered the elusive “Pusheenicorn”! Here, our furry grey friend has a unicorn horn and a rainbow mane to transform her into an even more magical creature. The pot is made of ceramic and the back of the box shows four different ways to use it. Since her horn has a hole in it, it can be used as a water can or a teapot. If those aren’t useful to you, you can just take off the lid and plant a wee succulent inside or simply use as a holder for pens or other small items. I think this is my favorite items of the box… though it’s hard to choose!

Pusheen Desk Fan

Perhaps I spoke too soon! I may have another favorite item. I have actually been meaning to buy a desk fan since my office has a few windows and can get hot later in the day. I love that it’s shaped like Pusheen and the entire thing has grates at the front (as well as the back) for maximum airflow. It comes with a USB plug, so it can go directly into your computer, or you can plug it into a wall if you have your own adapter (which smartphones commonly use). This little fan delivers quite a nice breeze that is sort of impressive, and it also has an on/off switch at the back so it can be turned off even when plugged in.

Pusheen Water Bottle

While it isn’t marked, this tall slender bottle holds a decent 16 ounces of liquid. Pusheenicorn makes another appearance here, eating an ice cream cone, surrounded by pastel colored sprinkles. There’s a pink flexible plastic strap to easily carry around or latch on to something and the yellow cap offers a surprisingly tight seal. Though I can see this loosely wiggling around in a larger car cup holder, it’s still too cute not to use.

Pusheen Tank Top

Another thing that Pusheen Box always includes is some sort of seasonal wearable item. For summer, a tank top is a clear choice. In past reviews, I’ve mentioned that the sizing seems very “unisex” meaning the medium I received is quite large on me and fits more like a “men’s” medium. If you don’t like wearing things oversized, I’d suggest sizing down at least one size. I’m pretty petite on top and could have done with a small. The tank has a very summery scene on it that features Pusheen, Stormy, and Pip having a nice day at the beach with a pale yellow sandy bottom and aqua sky top (complete with clouds, sun, and birds. The three of them are enjoying frozen treats and are each in patch form that has been sewn onto the tank. The back of the tank is a solid aqua color.

There is also always a plush included in every Pusheen Box. This summery one features her excitedly floating in a round striped innertube. I can picture her in a lazy river and think “What a brave kitty to love the water so much!”. Her fur is extremely soft material that makes me wanna cuddle up and the inner tube is made of a mint, pink, and white nylon. I love seeing her tiny little back paws dangling below, along with her striped tail. They always nail the details!

Verdict: This summer’s Pusheen Box was so much fun to go through and discover! Their packaging is always super giftable if there are items you won’t use, and the amount of detail and quality put into each one is really great, in my opinion. All of the items are also exclusive, so you can’t find them anywhere else. This month, my favorites are the desk fan and pusheenicorn pot, but I found most of them useful, adorable, or both. The floaty is the only real miss for me, but I shouldn’t have a problem finding it a nice new home.

  1. I am the husband I was one who ordered it this and how to explain it to my wife but now she steals every thing on me might have to get 2 boxes

  2. I love this box! I don’t have cats, I’m allergic to them, I’m married with kids and dogs, and this box is for ME. I absolutely love the tank top, it is adorable and such a nice quality! The usb fan is awesome! Everything is super cute as well as useful. My husband has his sports stuff so why can’t I have Pusheen! And since Pusheen loves unicorns, I think it’s totally fitting that this box had a unicorn theme.

  3. This box was my second Pusheen Box and I love everything! It provided me with lots of smiles and happiness which is just what I needed after a rough summer! Of course it doesn’t hurt that I love surfing so the figure was extra special and I love unicorns so anything Pusheencorn is right up my ally 🙂 Growing up (and now still as a 34 woman) I loved Hello Kitty and anything Sanrio, so even though Pusheen is by Gund, it still has a lot of the same style and qualities of Hello Kitty. Yes this box may not be for everyone, but I won’t ever let that rain on my pusheen parade!!! I also like that it’s only a quarterly box so that way you aren’t getting burn out on Pusheen and it makes it that more special and smile inducing when it does arrive 🙂
    P.S….can we also just take a moment to say how nice of a strong breeze the fan produces?!?! I’ve had fans that cost double/triple that haven’t produced nearly as strong of a breeze. Go Pusheen!!!

  4. The little fan and tea pot have brought great joy to my desk!

  5. This Box brings me so much joy and it is worth every penny. Even the misses are fine since I can swap or sell them. The little pot is my favorite! It’s so cute and so is the fan. I LOVE the wearables! I can’t wait for fall to wear last year’s sweater and for winter to wear last years sweater. Oh and to wear whatever wearables we get next. I wore my tank to work and that’s where a lot of my Pusheen items end up. Smokey ♥️ Pip ♥️ Pusheenicorn♥️

  6. So creative. Im not even a pusheen fan and I think this box is so cute!

  7. I subscribe for my 11-year-old, who is obsessed with Pusheen, and we LOVED this box! We loved every item! We have a few Pusheen mugs, so the teapot is our favorite, for Pusheen teatime. Everything is just so cute and fun. My kids squeal with delight at every item, and I love it too.

    We were so happy to see Stormy and Pip on the tank top too–I hope there are more Stormy and Pip items to come!

    Along with the Margot Elena box, this is far and away my favorite box out there!

    • Yes! I totally agree with u! Loving the pusheen love in these comments!

    • I love Stormy and Pip too! This was such a fun box 💛

  8. Love the Pusheenicorn. Adorbs.

    You could use the drink float when you take a bath! use it for snacks or something. Obviously it wouldn’t work with wine as it would warm it up but hey we all deserve a fun bath!

    • My 3 year old is using it as a bath toy

    • I agree. My kids snatched the floatie to use as a bath toy. lol

  9. I loved all the past Pusheen boxes, so I did an annual subscription. This was my first box, and I am pretty disappointed. I prefer Pusheen as just a regular cat. I hope the fall box is awesome.

    • I also feel the same about preferring Pusheen as a regular cat. I have been a subscriber to this box from the very early days and they randomly send me surveys. I always say I want to see Pusheen only and Pusheen as Pusheen.

    • Awhhh I feel completely the opposite I’m loving this seasons box SO SO much! I just think the vinyl figure of her surfing is so flipping cute I could die!! Love it!!! And that fan!!! OMG! How flipping unique cool and ADORABLE! I tell u I’ve been getting lots of boxes for years and years and have received these as well but due to my finances being in a terrible place atm I can’t afford this one and I can’t tell u how very much I want it and I have the BIGGEST box envy ever! SO green as I type this! I’m gonna keep my eyes peeled to eBay hopefully I can at least get the surfer pusheen that would really really make me happy! I think u ladies complaining should be ever so grateful that you have and were able to get a box of pusheen happiness when others can only turn green in front of their computers! Lol

  10. This box is so cool. I swear, if I was single and younger, I would definitely subscribe (it will be difficult to explain everything Pusheen to my husband). I’m jealous to all of you that got it.

    • I’m married and my husband gets it after going on and on! Definitely get it if you want it!

    • I’m 38 and married and my husband loved last Fall’s shower curtain and bath mat! We have the Pusheenicorn little teapot on display out on the counter. If we ever have kids I’ll have a hard time sharing this box 😊

    • Don’t let something inconvenient like a husband stop you 😉 I have totally convinced not only my husband, but all of my male co-workers at my manly job how awesome Pusheen is. One of the guys even bought me Pusheen stuff for Secret Santa. Give it a go, you might be surprised, I know I was!

    • I echo everyone else here, you might be surprised. My boyfriend thought it was silly at first, but now he loves Pusheen stuff too. He wears those slippers we got last box.

      • I echo this too!

        I’ve had this pusheen acorn sweatshirt which I’ve been wearing ever since. It’s oversized, soft, comfy, dorky. My boyfriend first thought it was silly… and he ended up getting one of his own. He wears it all the time.

        Now his sister thinks HE is silly. It’s okay, we’ll convert her too eventually 😛

        • Love this!

  11. Oh my goodness, the cuteness of it all!

  12. Not my favorite season from this box, but even when it’s not great, everything Pusheen is still adorable!

    • I agree. I like the pusheenicorn item but most of the rest ended up on eBay. Gonna take a break and just get one time boxes when I like the full spoilers.

      • Awhhh I feel completely the opposite I’m loving this seasons box SO SO much! I just think the vinyl figure of her surfing is so flipping cute I could die!! Love it!!! And that fan!!! OMG! How flipping unique cool and ADORABLE! I tell u I’ve been getting lots of boxes for years and years and have received these as well but due to my finances being in a terrible place atm I can’t afford this one and I can’t tell u how very much I want it and I have the BIGGEST box envy ever! SO green as I type this! I’m gonna keep my eyes peeled to eBay hopefully I can at least get the surfer pusheen that would really really make me happy! I think u ladies complaining should be ever so grateful that you have and were able to get a box of pusheen happiness when others can only turn green in front of their computers! Lol

      • Can u pretty please tell me ur store name I wasn’t able to purchase this one this season and I REALLY REALLY want some of these items! Thanks!!!!
