The Razberry Juice team is so affiliated with the Kewel Boxes team (they are the same people give or take a few newbies) that they have shipped it out to me, a hopefully independent reviewer!
The box arrived on Thursday, and I was very eager to rip it open, they are still using plain brown boxes, with a Kewel Boxes sticker on it. Not having a printed bespoke box doesn’t bother me at all, I assume using a basic box gives them more money to spend on the contents and I don’t keep the boxes and so I don’t care what is printed on them!!
January’s theme was London Calling which sounds quite exciting, anything with a British feel to it is going to tick boxes for me!
First out is a fridge magnet – it’s a nice large one, with what I think is a poster from the film “An American Werewolf in London”, which is a brilliant horror film from the 1980s. It’s a filler item I guess, but a nice one, and one which has already found its way to my fridge!
Next out is possibly my favourite item – a metal plaque from the film Shaun of the Dead, which is another really great film and one I have seen countless times, the plaque is not huge, but it comes with four sticky pads so you can pop it anywhere – really a nice a different item which I will definitely find a home for!
A keyring is out of the box next, and is somewhat surprisingly, the only Sherlock item! Being a huge Sherlock fan I was really happy to find something Sherlock themed. This looks to be an officially licenced item which is nice. It’s basically a vinyl keyring, but I like it!
Then we have the two jewels in the Kewel!
Finding two Pop Vinyls in the box was a very nice surprise, and one which I was not expecting.
First I had a Rocky Horror Show Pop, I admit I have not seen the Rocky Horror Show, either on the stage or the film version, but it is a nice looking Pop figure and different one to the standard! I pulled out Magenta from my box. I have no clue who she is or what she does, but it’s a nice Pop to add to my small collection!
The last item out of the box is arguably the best – a brilliant Shaun of the Dead Pop! I got the Simon Pegg Shaun character, it’s a very nice well detailed Pop figure, Shaun is wearing his work uniform and is carrying a cricket bat.
All in all, I am so very impressed with this box, I like everything it contains, even the fridge magnet and keyring which are undoubtedly filler items are great fun and useful.
The box is priced at £16.49 (plus P&P – which is £3.50) in the UK. Although I didn’t buy this box and was sent it in return for an honest review, I do know that they do not operate an automatic renewal system, so no one can get caught out. I am not sure exactly how it works, but I think they send out reminders or “invites” to subscribers who can then choose if they want the box or not.
Great Box – I really enjoyed it !
