The holidays are a pretty crazy time when it comes to making shipments. Although the postal service does their best to deliver your packages as quickly as possible, there are times when several weeks will pass before your item arrives in the mail. Sadly, we didn’t receive this TMNT Box until last week, so we haven’t been able to provide a review until now. With that said, let’s take a look at what this late package has to offer.
TMNT KAWAII CUBESAs you can see, this TMNT Box came with two Kawaii Cubes. While October’s box included Donatello, December brought both Leonardo and Raphael. These adorable toys include a small bean bag on the bottom and they are relatively easy to stack. Now that we’ve received three of the four turtles, I have to wonder if they have any plans to send us Michelangelo in the near future. No matter what their plans are, this is definitely a nice addition to the package. At an average retail price of $5-10 each, these two toys alone are worth the cost of a TMNT Box.
COLLECTIBLE TMNT PINSAlthough I’ve really enjoyed a lot of the collectible pins they have been putting in the TMNT Box as of late, I have to admit that at least one of these is not very impressive. The manhole cover is a bit of a strange choice for a TMNT pin, but I guess you could surround it with pins of the actual Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a reference.
To be fair, the TMNT masks pin is actually pretty cool, and I’m happy to add it to my collection. Considering that you’d pay another $5-$10 for each of these pins on the open market, it’s safe to say that these trinkets actually add a lot of value to the subscription box.
CASEY JONES/FOOT SOLDIER COLLECTIBLE COIN
Last but not least, we have yet another collectible TMNT coin. This time around, they’ve chosen to put Casey Jones on one side and a Foot Soldier on the other. It would appear that they are finally running out of characters to put on these collectible coins. If you take a close look, you might even spot a small error in the quote from the Foot Soldier. Even though I really appreciated this trinket in months past, I’m beginning to wonder whether or not it should continue in 2018. We’ll see what TMNT Box decides to do soon enough, but suffice it to say that this wasn’t the most impressive item in the package.
When it comes to value, there’s plenty to work with in December’s TMNT Box. I’d say there’s at least $25-$30 worth of merchandise, and that’s a pretty good deal considering that you’re only paying $9.99 a month. Although some of these items weren’t my cup of tea, I really loved the TMNT masks pin and the Kawaii Cubes. It seems like this subscription box always finds a way to impress me with at least one or two interesting collectibles or knick-knacks each month. That said, I hope that 2018 will bring a little more variety to the service.
