This box comes with a card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Oniva X-Grill Portable Barbecue – Retail Value $61.95 (On Amazon for $45.98)
This is a flat pack grill that takes up very little space. Here it is closed:
The design is slick, it’s easy to set up, and it comes with a carrying case, too.
Here are the cooking and charcoal grates:
This portable grill seems like a great item for anyone who is into tailgating, camping, etc. (Unfortunately I’m not any of those things, but I appreciate the slim design will take up practically zero space in our basement for when the need arises.)
(FYI – several readers mentioned reading not-so-great reviews on Amazon of this product regarding the black paint not holding up well. From my understanding, the grill is still totally useable, though. We haven’t used the grill yet, so I can’t comment on those issues. If you’ve used the grill, please let us know what you think!)
W&P Design Hydropod – Retail Value $25.00
This hydro pod comes with a Coconut Husk Pith, Plant Food Powder, and Basil Seeds:
And it’s pretty easy to set up.
Put a small pinch of plant food into the Hydropod and insert the plant cup.
Fill with water until the level reaches to just above the base of the plant cup. Then add the frow plug and 2-3 seeds into the center of the grow plug:
Once small leaves begin to sprout, remove the water and add new water with another pinch of plant food. (And keep it in a sunny spot.)
I do not have a green thumb, but basil is my favorite herb, so I’m going to do my best! (And I love the clean look of this little orb, too!)
Gefu Digital Thermometer – Retail Value $29.95
Pretty fitting for the tailgate/grilling theme I’m detecting in this box!
This digital thermometer measures in Fahrenheit and Celsius and gives a reading in 10 seconds.
And it comes with the battery so it’s ready to go:
Corkcicle 16oz Waterman Edition Tumbler – Retail Value $24.95
This is one of my favorite items in the box! I love the matte grey finish and the flat sides and easy to grip finish make it comfortable to hold.
The tumbler is triple insulated, vacuum sealed stainless steel, and it’s BPA and lead free. (Corkcicle recommends handwashing this tumbler, but I’ve had no issues with it in the top rack of my dishwasher.)
This mini bean bag toss game measures 12.25″ L x 20″ W. Again, I’m appreciating the slim design, as this is something that will be nice to pull out the next time we’re entertaining outdoors, but since that doesn’t happen often, having two full-sized heavy wooden boards would take up too much space.
On the opposite side, there’s a tic tac toe board:
The material is plastic and particle board covered with a wood-looking veneer, so it’s pretty lightweight, too.
Flint Lint Roller & Refill – Value $10.99
I received one of these in a POPSUGAR box and I LOVE it! This is a must-pack anytime I travel.
If you aren’t familiar the lint roller sheets extend out and slide back in easily. No exposed sticky tape when you aren’t using it!
And it’s great that this came with a refill, too.
Tooletries Koby Bag– Value $35
I’ve seen Dopp kits lined with spill-proof material before, but this is a first for me. This entire bag is silicone so it’s completely leak resistant and easy to clean.
I love the matte black finish, and that the silicone material is anti-microbial. This is my new travel case!
The bright red zipper pull is a nice lil’ pop of color, too!
Little Red Bottle Emergency Stain Rescue – Retail Value $8.99
I’ve tried this before thanks to subscription boxes, and it works well. Plus this stain remover is free of peroxide, chlorine bleach and phosphates.
Lastly, there’s a National Breast Cancer Foundation pin and card included with this box. Breo has donated $5 for every box sold this quarter, and you can join their campaign by donating here.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $242. Some of these items are available on Amazon for lower prices, so it might be easier to think of it as $22.71 an item if you paid $159 for this box, $21.28 an item if you paid $149, etc, and as low as $18.42 an item if you have been subscribing for 5 or more boxes. (Their pricing structure is designed to reward loyalty.)
I’m not a camper/a tailgater/(insert another enjoyable fall pastime here), so the grilling and outdoor game items weren’t huge hits for me, but everything else in the box was a big win. (Breo Box has a way of finding seemingly simple looking products, and once you start using them, you realize how awesome they are.) And I love that they donated to the NBCF this season, and included a pink box as well.
