FanMail “High School Hijinks” August 2018 Review
Here’s the booklet for the box.
As mentioned earlier, this is the last Fanmail box! Soon, the curators of this subscription will launch the Charmed Box of Shadows!
As usual, the booklet includes a product list AND a handy reference for the release dates of must-know comics, movies, and more.
Pink Ladies Socks
I’m digging these Grease-inspired socks! They go up to my knee, and though they are a bit narrow on my calves, the pop of color is awfully cute. They’ll be great for cozy nights on the couch watching old movies!
Mini Pop Culture Pennants
This set of three felted pennants features the emblems of some classic fictional schools—Beacon Hills from Teen Wolf, Sunnydale from Buffy, and Smallville from, well, Smallville. Each one is 10 inches long and perfect for tacking to a corkboard. If I was still in school, I would TOTALLY hang one of these on the inside of my locker!
Kim Possible What’s the Sitch Bag
When I saw the saying on this satiny pouch, I literally said: “no… freakin’… way.” I haven’t seen a Kim Possible ANYTHING before and I LOVED that show! This turquoise bag pops out into a square shape that’s surprsingly roomy. I think it’s intended to be a pencil or makeup bag, but it’s big enough for a sandwich if I wanted to use it as a classy lunch bag!
Babysitters Club x Stranger Things Notebook
This has to be one of the coolest things I’ve gotten in a subscription box… EVER! This hardcover notebook is the same size as a classic Babysitters Club book, and the design on the cover even nods to the original “Kristy’s Great Idea” title. All of that AND I get the bonus of having Steve Harrington, my #1 dude, on the cover? YES PLEASE! I’ve just found my new favorite notebook.
The Verdict: I’m kinda sad to see Fanmail go, but what a sendoff! That notebook? Amazing. And the other items were quirky and fun, too. I thought they covered a lot of ground in terms of the shows/pop culture staples that they referenced. There were classics and new faves all mixed together. (Sometimes in the same product!!!) I’m excited to see what the Charmed box brings!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. This is the last box for Fanmail as we know it! Sign up to stay posted about their new box, the Charmed Box of Shadows, here.
Value Breakdown: This box cost $21.99 + $7.55 in shipping to PA, or $29.54 in total. That means the average value of each of the 4 featured items is $7.39.
