CultureFly (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 our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Our fall theme is "Glitter & Glam" and I have to say this box felt a little different than previous boxes we have received since usually our items come packaged up as a "surprise." Also, last fall's theme was so much fun, this one just kind of felt like a cutesy box full of girly stuff and it wasn't as unique as last quarter's either. There were still some fun items in here though, so let's check them out!
Inside the L.O.L. Surprise! "Glitter & Glam" Fall 2022 Box
L.O.L. Exclusive Shirt, Size 8
The shirt is cute and fun with the colorblock style and pocket that reads "glitter glam 4 lyfe" with an L.O.L. girl on it. The fit is good, although maybe a little boxy, but my daughter likes it and I can see her getting a lot of use out of this one!
L.O.L. Exclusive Plastic Case
My daughter was pretty excited about this case, and has already put it to use for her toys! It's a glittery plastic case with a handle and while it has two latches on the side, one of ours doesn't seem to want to stay closed all the time. It's a cute little case and all of our goodies fit inside which is nice.
L.O.L. Exclusive Cozy Crew Socks
I'm not really sure what is up with these socks. They are cute and my daughter would love to be able to wear them, but they are tiny! Yes, my daughter has pretty large feet, but we have received socks in this sub before and these seem comically small by comparison. I did try them on my 6-year-old son and they just barely fit him, so I'm thinking other subscribers might also take issue with these. We will try passing these down to her younger cousin in hopes they fit her.
L.O.L. Exclusive Necklace Set
These necklaces are cute with two very different styles. The choker is very lightweight and stretchy, while the other is longer and features a cute little tassel and a glittery broken heart (or is that just lightning?).
L.O.L. Exclusive Hair Clip Set
You can't have glitter & glam without some shiny, sparkly hair accessories! These clips are fun and all of them (except the pearl barrette) feature alligator clips on the back, making them easy to put in your hair with just a pinch!
L.O.L. Exclusive Brush and Mirror Compact
The style of this is cute, and my daughter loves the idea of this mirror and hairbrush in one that she can throw in her purse. It does feel a bit cheap, though, so I'm not sure how long it will actually last us.
L.O.L. Coin Pouch
This coin pouch is another fun design. It's a small zippered bag that will be perfect for holding some change, some bills, and a few small other trinkets!
We can never have enough notebooks and paper around here for all of the creative writings and drawings my kiddos do. This one is very pretty and reads "glitterally dreaming" with what looks to be a wintry background. The pages inside are lined and the outer cover is harder, so it should protect the pages well!
Here you can see everything tucked inside our plastic case!
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 8 items costs approximately $5.63 each. While I think the value is there, I was a little disappointed in the quality this quarter compared to previous boxes!
There were a lot of fun items in this box, but as I mentioned, the quality was a bit lower than usual and the theme just didn't hit as hard as other boxes: we didn't get a ton of "glitter & glam" feel! The socks were also a disappointment, but the shirt, plastic case, and notebook were all hits with my daughter!

To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! Boxes are still available, but they do tend to sell out so I recommend purchasing ASAP if you're interested!
