Mini Mystery Box of Awesome February 2019 Review
Each month we get an advertisement card that includes a new contest for a pretty cool gift. This month, it’s a Hammock Chair! The back of the card also introduces a new way to snack through a monthly subscription; we started reviewing those, too, go check them out here!
We also get a monthly edition of The Regular which has all kinds of puzzles: word search, word fill in’s and connect the dots.
Mind Reader Game – Retail Value $9.77
This was a cool inclusion; I have never received a game in this subscription before. It came with 4 headbands, 2 dry erase markers and instructions for play. I enjoy playing games with my kids, especially games like this. It is similar to the Headbands game (or the Heads Up app) except we get to choose our own object, animal, place, famous character or person.
The headbands remind me of tin foil but seem to work okay and the markers were hard to get going at first but did their job. All in all, it is something we will pull out time and time again, so very cool inclusion this month.
Space Invaders Projection Light – Retail Value $16.49
This is such a nostalgic item! It is cute and small and so much fun and looks just like the arcade game.
But it doesn’t affect the light. The lamp lights up so many colors! Blue, green, red, yellow, purple and even colors mixed!
But I have a complaint: when I opened the box, it was damaged. The screen is punctured on part of the edge.
Here is the projection and some of my favorite mixes. Again, what a cool light!
I will not lie to you – I was a bit excited to receive this. Obviously, when I saw it, I instantly thought it was an off-brand of Poo-pourri, but I have never had the desire to purchase it because I feel it is a bit expensive. It is self-explanatory: spray before you go and mask the smell. As soon as I took this bottle out of the box, I was hit with a citrusy scent. Tip-toeing around the TMI line, it appeared to do its job and really left the lavatory smelling citrusy. Unfortunately, no matter how I searched I could not find this online.
Verdict: I enjoyed this month’s Mini Mystery Box of Awesome. Every item will be used more than once and everyone in my household enjoyed them all. Even though I could not find the value of the spray, the $26.26 total of the game and the light exceed the value of the $9.99 box costs, so it was a good value this month.
