So I gave in and subscribed to loot box last month since they opened up their subscription service to Australia. A one month box for Australia is $30USD which includes postage.
This months theme was “celebrate” which is what convinced me to try out the box for this month. When it was sent out, I was emailed a tracking number, which never ended up working, but it rocked up to my door step within about two weeks of it being sent.
When I opened the box I was so excited, the presentation is great, and much better than other subscription boxes I have tried previously. First thing on top when open the box is a pamphlet with 20 pages, with info about the theme, future cretes and info about the mega crate, followed by a page for each item.
The items in my box were:
-South Park Rechargeable Mobile Speaker -$20USD
I got the character butters, and originally though this is something I will never used, but I plugged it in and the sound is great! Usually these little speakers produce a pretty crappy sound quality, but this was really clear!
-Batman Tyvek Mighty Wallet $15USD
I’ve seen these around on the internet and always thought they were pretty cool but not something I would ever buy so it was cool to get one and check out. Passed this one onto my boyfriend to use
-Premium Playing Cards $4USD
I’m not quite sure what the theme of the cards is from, but these are the best quality playing cards I have ever felt! So the first impression of “oh playing cards…” Definitely improved once I got them out of the pack
-BFAST Breakfast Shake Vanilla
Haven’t tried this yet but I’m a fan of these kind of things so I’m keen to give it a try
-First Person Shooter Glass
I’ve been needing some shot glasses, so this is just perfect and I love that I’ll be able to make so many lame jokes about it ;)
I’m not a fan of doctor who, but since this month was the 50th anniversary of doctor who, it makes sense that something had to be included for it!
-Police Box Wall Graphic
Another doctor who piece which I’ll probably just find someone to pass it onto, but if I was a fan, would be a pretty cool item
So overall we received 7 items in the box for $30USD with the items easily equalling over that amount.
When looking for the prices of all the items, they were all items I would not easily be able to buy in Australia, unless I was to pay excessive shipping costs
Overall I thought the box was pretty cool, but all the items are things I would never buy myself, so I’m not too sure if it’s really worth the $30. I will wait to see what the theme for the next box is before getting the next month, and will be going halves in the cost with my boyfriend this time so won’t feel as bad for forking out so much money.
