Seinfeld Box Subscription Review – Fall 2020
The official Seinfeld box is a new quarterly subscription box about nothing. The box is filled with exclusive apparel, accessories, collectibles, and more! It’s real and it’s spectacular.
Seinfeld is one of those shows that I could watch over and over again and never get sick of it. This was a show that we watched as a family when it was still on, and I can still hear my Dad laughing when I think about certain episodes. When I saw this box, I knew it was for me!
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.)

Seinfeld Box Fall 2020 Review
Printed Tote Bag
This tote is pretty amazing! It is thick, durable, and super easy to wipe down to clean. If it had a top zipper or button closure then it would be absolutely perfect! I have been using it to take with me to the grocery store to place smaller items in and it does the job perfectly! It would also work great to pack a change of clothes or to use to carry books or a computer in to go to work or for traveling. Plus, the print on it is hilarious! I love the Seinfeld logo at the bottom and that it is filled with funny quotes and images. My favorite? “She had man hands!”
Hot-Spots of New York Shirt
My husband could not have been more excited when I showed him this shirt and he has worn it twice already! The map itself seems like a standard New York City shirt that you got on vacation, but when you look closer, oh boy you see how awesome this map really is. The map will show you how to get to Jerry’s apartment, Elaine’s publishing office, Del Boca Vista, Monk’s Cafe, and so much more. These truly are the hot spots of New York!
Top of the Muffin To You Potholder
Mr. Lippman and Elaine, one of my favorite duos that didn’t last nearly long enough in my opinion. The second I showed this to my husband we both said, “Top of the Muffin TO YOU” in that hilarious way that I can hear Elaine say over and over. The logo is perfect, the color is bright and cheery, and it makes me giggle every time I go to use it. While the potholder itself isn’t the best quality (it isn’t very thick), I’ve been using it to put dishes on to rest on the counter after taking them out of the oven and it seems to be working well enough.
This painting is legendary! I think I’ve seen it in small and large poster form in dorm rooms and beyond over the many years since this episode aired. The painting of Kramer was done by one of Jerry’s girlfriends, Nina. When on display, an elderly couple is so taken by the painting that they want to buy it. They are so smitten with Kramer they even later have dinner with him. There are so many moments like this throughout the series where people are just so taken by Kramer, it’s such a funny aspect of the character. It just so happens that my son loves Kramer and thought this portrait was hilarious! My husband immediately hung it in his office, which makes my son giggle when he sees it and even tells people that his Daddy has a picture of Kramer in his house. We are big fans here if you can’t tell!
These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty! Glass
Who do you hear saying this line when you read it?! In this episode, Kramer is telling the group about his latest acting gig alongside Woody Allen. He tells everyone the line he has to say, which is, “These pretzels are making me thirsty.” George chimes in asking if that’s how he’s going to say it, and then everyone gives their take on how Kramer should deliver his line. I always hear George, without fail. It is such an amazing episode, so hilarious, and such a simple line. This cup is now my husband’s, he loves it so much I found him taking a picture with a newly poured beer in it to send to his brother.
Fusilli Jerry Vinyl Figure
This might be one of my favorite episodes of all time. It has everything: Puddy, Mr. and Mrs. Costanza, The Assman, and so much more. In the episode, Kramer starts making these statues that look like people out of different pasta. He makes Fusilli Jerry because Jerry is silly. Honestly, so much happens in this episode, but as it relates to Fusilli Jerry, Mr. Costanza somehow falls on it and it goes directly up his behind. Kramer takes Mr. Costanza to the proctologist where he discovers who The Assman (the license plate) belongs to! This statue is amazing, it is crafted perfectly and looks just like the one from this episode. My husband really wanted to gift this to his brother so it is currently set aside as a Christmas present for him. The gift that keeps on giving if you ask me!
This little sticker set was a fun little surprise. I love stickers, especially to decorate cards and envelopes. I kept one page for myself, and we sent the others to friends that are all big Seinfeld fans who we haven’t seen in many months and miss dearly. So this was our way of cheering everyone up! The black and white cookie episode is another favorite of mine, plus it made me really want a black and white cookie. We also have Fusilli Jerry and Assman from that notorious episode. Last but not least, of my favorites, the puffy shirt, “But I don’t wanna be a pirate.” Just too good!
The Coffee Table Book of Coffee Tables by Kramer
More Kramer merch that makes me giggle! Kramer famously made a coffee table book that was all about coffee tables. The book was published by Pendant Publishing, where Elaine was a copy editor. Kramer was on Regis and Kathy where he really makes a scene! This item is small but when we saw it turned into a little coffee table like Kramer’s book did, too, we howled with laughter. My husband debated on giving this to his brother as well, but ultimately decided he would use it on his desk at work. So he can use it for note-taking or to hold his coffee cup. Kramer, you are a genius!
Top of the Muffin To You! Silicone Baking Tray
This brings together the Top of the Muffin potholder. You can use this silicone baking tray to bake little muffin tops and let them cool on your potholder! The tops of the muffin really are the best part so with this baking tray you won’t even have to remove the stump of the muffin. This is actually a really cute tray and makes the perfect amount for my family. I am going to use this to bake some muffins with my son who is newly starting to help me with baking. I will be yelling, “Top of the muffin TO YOU” the whole time we bake so it should be a fun experience for everyone.
Vandelay Industries Baseball Hat
Fun trivia question: How many times do you think George uses Vandelay Industries throughout the series? This hat is so perfect, I love fitted hats because they work better with my hair and they have that perfect 90s vibe. I can actually see George wearing this with his signature jacket. Vandelay Industries is what George uses when he is telling someone what he does for a living or on his resume, the made-up company that he works for. It was always so funny to me that he went to such lengths over so many years to improve his standing with people whether it be for work or with women he wanted to date. Such a memorable part of his character. My husband is gifting this to one of his very close friends for Christmas who is also a crazy George fan!
The Verdict: This box about nothing brought me so much joy! Seinfeld was such a big part of my childhood. We had one TV growing up so we watched whatever my parents watched (my mom wanted us all to be together all the time, even if that meant fighting over the TV). I loved the show and always thought it was so funny, and it reminds me of total and complete laughter coming from my dad. As an adult, it is still one of my all-time favorite shows, I sometimes will turn it on just because it makes me happy. My husband is also a major fan so we knew this box was going to be the perfect fit in our house. I have to say, it totally delivered! A lot of the items were novelty things that you might set out on a desk, but honestly, that is exactly what my husband and his friends want more of in their lives. So this was a great box to get things to give as gifts and things that we could send to friends that we miss so much. Everything we didn’t give away we are keeping to display in our house (mainly in my husband’s at home office). The quality is totally there – I mean the Fusilli Jerry feels like a prop from the set! I wasn’t able to find retail values for these products, but with the monthly cost of $39.99, each of the 10 products has an average value of $3.99. Fan boxes can be tricky, but this box brought a curation that took us through the seasons with items that we could use mixed with things we just want to have around to look at and enjoy. It was also filled with gifts we could give to friends and… yada yada yada. I love it and I can’t wait to see what the winter box will bring!
