Culture Fly (the team behind Pusheen Box, The Nick Box, Supernatural Box, and DC Comics World’s Finest: The Collection) launched a quarterly box for kids – L.O.L. Surprise! Box. For $38 per quarter, each box contains 6-8 custom-made, exclusive L.O.L. Surprise! goodies for kids to wear, use, and play with. They offer sizes 4/5 through 14/16 for their apparel. The items inside are always unique, creative, and keep in line with the playful vibe of this brand so it's always exciting to find one of these on our doorstep!
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.)
All of the items come wrapped up making it a great surprise when you get to open each package!
Well, you can see that this box was clearly meant to be a Halloween-themed box, but with the supply issues, it did not arrive in time, in fact, it was almost a month past Halloween, so that was pretty disappointing. This is why I really would rather seasonal boxes focus on seasons rather than specific holidays, but I knew there were still some fun things my daughter would like, so fortunately the box wasn't a total miss! Let's see what's inside!
Inside the L.O.L. Surprise! "You Go Ghoul" Fall 2021 Box
L.O.L. Exclusive Sweatshirt Dress, Size 8
My daughter was super excited about this sweatshirt dress and while it is kind of specific to Halloween, I think the "sleepy bones" and eye mask still work even out of season. At least, she doesn't seem to mind! I think it's actually really cute and she loved how warm and comfy it was! The length was pretty good for wearing around the house, but would need leggings outside of the house.
L.O.L. Exclusive Socks
These socks are a little nod to Halloween, but they are still cute enough to wear any time! My daughter loved them!
L.O.L. Exclusive Enamel Shoe Charm Set
These shoe charms are cute and a little more Halloween-specific. I haven't exactly figured out how to put them on her shoelaces yet, but they're a fun and unique item.
L.O.L. Exclusive Dress Up Pin
This oversized pin is super cute! She comes with just her underclothes on and then the clothing items are magnetic so you can place them on top. She looks like she is ready for trick-or-treat, although she could be just ready for anything when you take away her candy bucket!
L.O.L. Exclusive Adhesive Face Decal
This face decal is fun and would have been neat to have for Halloween. Liv is not big on the idea of having something stuck to her face so we will be passing this along to someone else who will hopefully enjoy it!
L.O.L. Exclusive Pom Keychain
This little keychain is so cute! It is nice and plush and her pom pom headband is a fun touch!
L.O.L. Exclusive D.I.Y. Wall Clock
I love, love, love the idea of this wall clock that she can decorate herself with the included markers, but I REALLY wish it was not so specific to Halloween. It's such a fun little item and it would have been cute to hang up in October, so I guess technically it could be seasonal decor, but I wish something this cool had a more universal design that could work any time of year. It looks like it just needs one battery to run and you are set to go. The time is a bit difficult to see when it is all black and white with the busy design, but I'm sure some color would help it stand out more!
Value - Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $38 + $7 shipping
Value Breakdown: This box costs $38 + $7 shipping for a total cost of $45, which means that each of the 7 items costs approximately $6.43 each. Considering these are all exclusive, branded items, I think that's a pretty good value!
This L.O.L. Surprise! Box would have been really fun to receive had it been on time, instead, it just felt a bit out of place since it is nearing December. I don't mind a few holiday-themed items and my daughter was still happy to use some of the things that were Halloween-specific, but something more generally seasonal would have been better in my opinion! Overall, there were still a lot of cute items and it was a fun box.
