The Office Box Subscription Review – Summer 2020

The Office Box is a quarterly subscription box full of exclusive, officially-licensed merch from the hit TV show. Inside, you’ll find exclusive apparel, accessories, home goods, and more that you just can’t get anywhere else.

I have been a long-time fan of The Office, but I didn’t realize what a true fan was until I met my husband. He will watch and rewatch every season from beginning to end every so often just because. Every quote, GIF, and joke from him comes from The Office so I knew that both of us would love this box!

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Office Box Summer 2020 Review

 

Each box comes with a card showing each of the items included.

 

Prison Mike Bandana

Just seeing this bandana makes me laugh, plus I love that it also has the best boss mug and “The “Office printed on it. This would actually be great to have to use for a super easy yet funny Halloween costume! This is from the episode where Michael pretends to be an ex-con, AKA prison Mike. He plays prison Mike in a meeting with everyone to ‘scare them straight’ because someone from the office was saying prison is better than being in the office. “You guys got it soft and cushy!”

 

Greetings From Scranton Tee

What a great shirt! I love that it is sort of a subtle way to show your love of the show. The fabric is super soft and I love the logo for The Office on the bottom. Inside the word Scranton shows little images from the show as well! This is a bit big for me, so my husband happily added it to his tee collection.

 

Kevin Malone Costume Apron

My husband immediately took this out and asked me to take a picture of him in it to send it to his friends. He loved it so much! I love a good apron, but this one really takes the cake as being the best one we own now! We were in a chili cookoff last year and I really wish we had this back then. Kevin and his chili isn’t a huge part of the episode that this is from, but it is probably the best Kevin moment and one that is so memorable. Kevin talks about how he cooks his chili, how cooking chili is the one thing he does the best, and as he is talking they show him carrying this huge pot of chili into the office only to fall and spill it all over the floor. He finds whatever he can to try to scoop it all back into the pot. It is so funny while being so sad; I mean, as someone who trips often, I felt so bad for him at that moment.

WUPHF Bumper Sticker

Anyone else out there love Ryan?! I think I just love the actor, but I always sort of had a special place in my heart for him even though he was pretty rude most of the time. So this little bumper sticker is from the company that Ryan starts. It is super confusing and makes no sense, but again is just typical Ryan. The company is a cross portal messaging system that he ends up selling later on for the domain name, and it sort of goes into this big thing with Michael since he eventually becomes an investor. Even though my son has never seen The Office, he asked if he could put this sticker on his skateboard which we thought was super funny!

 

Fax Machine with Letter

Jim trolling Dwight is my favorite thing! Reading this letter made me laugh so hard, and I love that the note is on the actual pin as well! This is from when Jim works at a different office, but he took with him some of Dwight’s letterhead so that he can randomly send faxes to Dwight. The funny part is that he sends letters to him as future Dwight so it always freaks Dwight out a lot! This pin isn’t super thick, but it has two backs to keep it nicely in place. This just earned a spot on my husband’s favorite jacket that is covered in special pins and patches.

 

Michael Scott Beach Games Smols Vinyl Figure

Bobbleheads are my husband’s favorite. His desk at his office is covered in bobbleheads that he has collected over the years. Now that he is working from home for the remainder of this year, we have been trying to get his home office feeling a bit more comfortable. So this has earned a spot on his new desk! This is from the episode where everyone goes to a nearby lake for some beach games. Everyone quickly discovers that Michael is being interviewed for a position at Corporate and that the winner of the beach games will become the new regional manager. It gets intense in the best way possible! I also read that when filming this episode it was super hot throughout the day, but would get bitterly cold at night so it was really tricky for them to film.

 

Sumo Match Pint Glass

This is one of those episodes where I laugh so hard that I cry every time I see it. When Andy rolls into the lake and floats away in his sumo outfit, omg the best! This pint glass has a quote from Jim that says, “I have never seen that look in a man’s eyes…ever. I thought that I might die. On beach day.” This is from when Stanley wrestles Jim at beach day and Stanley is so super intense about it. Seeing Stanley on this glass with that quote will provide me with endless giggles whenever I use it!

 

Kevin Malone Bobblehead

I wish I had this bobblehead for our chili cookoff last year, it would have made the perfect either first place or last place trophy! Anyway, this is another item that has made its way to my husband’s home office desk, and it got a quick photo op to send to his friends as well. Kevin is seriously so dry and funny that anything he does makes me laugh, but the thought of him picking up the spilled chili is just too much. I love it! What a fun way to round out this box!

The Verdict: This month’s The Office Box provided me with so many laughs that I really needed! My husband is a huge fan of the show so we usually unbox this one together. It usually ends with us watching clips from each episode so we are both crying by the time we got through all of the items. I mean, if that doesn’t tell you how awesome this box is then I don’t know what else will! Each item this month was so unique, nothing that I have seen out in a store. The bobbleheads have all found a new place in my husband’s office. The pint glass and apron are now staples in our kitchen, and the pin found a spot on my husband’s favorite jacket. I absolutely love that this month came with two Kevin items because, honestly, Kevin’s chili is just the funniest thing ever. The beach games is an episode that makes me cry from laughing every time I watch it so I was blown away to get two items that go with that episode. I wasn’t able to find retail values for these products, but with the monthly cost of $39.99, each of the 8 products has an average value of $4.99. That might seem a little high for some of the items, but if you are a true fan of the show, this is an awesome box to get quarterly! For me, this is an awesome box for us because we are both fans of the show, but I think this would also make an incredible gift to a fellow Office lover that still can’t get enough merch even long after the show stopped!

  1. My favorite Prison Mike quote: “The worst thing about prison was the dementors.”

  2. Wow this summer box was awesome! I wouldn’t know what I’d do with the bobblehead or vinyl figurine, but still such a great box.
    A few questions though. 1) What size is the shirt and do you fill something out before subscribing? I just couldn’t imagine paying for any subscription and getting clothing that only sends out one size for every subscriber. 2) How much is the shipping charge? You only said there’s shipping, but never the cost.
    Thanks!

    • Shipping will depend on your location, just add the box to your cart and go through the checkout to see what your charge would be. For the shirt, I received a large, but during the sign-up process, you can select what size items you would like!

  3. If anyone doesn’t want their apron, I’d love to buy it.

  4. Nooooo!!! I’m sad that I missed out on this one!

  5. Ha! Omg I love your reviews. Your laughter is contagious! I really need to get this box for my BF…it’s great!

  6. Oh, they misspelled the word tomatoes on the apron. I do love kevin Malone but I think the box should replace that apron.

    • I agree. Embarrassing they didn’t catch this.

    • I saw that! How annoying.

    • Yep!! After the backward apostrophe on the FRIENDS lobster vest, it makes you wonder about quality control at CultureFly. Knock on wood, I have never had an issue with the Pusheen Box or other CF items I bought last year for Christmas presents.

  7. I have only seen episodes of The Office here and there, but this box and the review cracked me up! They chose a lot of great items.

    I think you need another chili cook off in the near future!
