Quirky Crate May 2020 Review
Quirky Crate samples one item from a featured artist or brand each month. This month features Mine Eyes Design, a two-person illustration team that designed the clipart used in the info card, the sticker sheet, and the postcard set found in this month's box. This info card gives you a little background info on their work as well as some social media info.
On the flipside, Quirky Crate includes an itemized list of each product and its value. This month's theme is "90's Edition."
Time to get quirky!
Care Bears Socks - Listed Value $9
I love that this pair of socks has the symbols for each Care Bear and not the Care Bears themselves. It's such a cute idea! Quirky Crate's socks have reliable quality every month; they are always the same medium-thick, comfortable fit with adorable graphics. I wear a size 8 shoe, and these fit me perfectly.
Alien Beanie - Listed Value $15
The unknown has always been such an appealing topic for me; aliens scare me but in an exciting way! This hat, although not seasonally appropriate, would keep any sized head toasty. It is a really thick beanie, and that expressionless alien makes me feel nostalgic for those sticker machines inside of the grocery store. I'll revisit this accessory at the end of the year when the weather turns cold again; for now, I am ditching all head apparel, welcoming summer!
Game Over Purse Bag - Listed Value $34
Quirky Crate is bringing back the best of the '90s this month with this faux leather bag. I wasn't fortunate enough to have a pink Gameboy, but I had the original, hefty grey version. It is most likely still in my mom's garage with my Tetris game cartridge inside. This bag has an optional gold chain that hooks onto the sides, and it is big enough to fit my phone and a small wallet.
'90s Sticker Sheet - Listed Value $5
This may be one of those sheets of stickers that I never have the heart to use. I admit, I still have prized stickers from elementary school that I'll probably never use; they're too cool. Anyway, I adore the Caboodle, Doc Martin, Super Soaker, and Doodle Bear stickers. They sum up my youth perfectly! You only get one sheet, and the listed value is $5, which I think is steep for just a few stickers.
Rainbow Troll Enamel Pin - Listed Value $10
Everyone needs a lucky rainbow Troll pin. With rainbow hair and a pink sparkling bellybutton, this troll is sure to win your heart! This small pin has one pin back to secure it, and it is sure to look adorable on your spring jean jacket, windbreaker, or Jansport!
Postcard Set - Listed Value $6
Once again, Quirky Crate is summing up my youth with this postcard set. When I saw Furby on the cellophane, my face totally lit up! This set of 5 postcards comes with a blank back to write a note, doodle, and maybe include some of your new-found stickers. The artists from Mine Eyes designed each postcard, and I think they did an amazing job encompassing that '90s culture vibe with some of the more memorable pop culture from the era.
Velvet Scrunchie - Retail Value $4
I've been wearing scrunchies nonstop, and I'm so happy they are back in style. This tie-dyed, velvet scrunchie is very comfortable; the colors are bright and just the pop of color I need on a daily basis.
Troll Earrings - Listed Value $12
My ears are pretty sensitive, so I am not sure if I'll be able to wear this pair of trolls, but they are so cute. They are also creepy, now that I am looking into their little black eyes. Regardless, I think I will likely put them on display instead of sporting them on my ears. Their crazy pink hair would make my ears an enticing target for my 7-month-old, who is already obsessed with my jewelry. There is no detailing on what type of metal was used for the hooks, so if you have sensitive ears, I would proceed with caution.
The Verdict: May's Quirky Crate made me so happy! I get extremely nostalgic when I think about growing up in the '90s; I miss that era so much, and there were so many amazing memories that this box helped dredge up, so thank you Quirky Crate for the nostalgia! The total value of this box adds up to $95, double the $36.95 + $6.50 shipping subscription cost. This box consistently brings a smile to my face and especially at this time in history, that makes this box worth every penny!
