Mickey Monthly Unboxing
What exactly are these unboxings?
We need to first talk about what the box we are unboxing is first. I am talking about subscription boxes. I am not quite sure how or when it started, but subscription boxes have been quite popular as of a couple years now. They are subscription based products, could be monthly or weekly, and sent right to your door. The contents can range from razors, toys, food, clothes, and basically anything you can possibly dream of. It all depends on which company you choose to buy from. Most companies are sending out mystery boxes, which are theme contents which can be a complete mystery until they are opened.
Unboxing videos or reviews are basically what they are describing, it’s when you are invited to discover the contents of these boxes, with the buyer, as they open it in real time. They have become popular with people that are curious to see what a certain company would pack in their subscriptions boxes.
About Mickey Monthly
I bought from Mickey Monthly. This company is known for their monthly subscription boxes that are filled with content from Disney parks. They have some many different kinds of boxes to choose from in their archive. There are four different sizes of the Disney Park monthly boxes. There are also monthly boxes dedicated to park pins and park snacks. The options are endless.
And I finally did it. I bought my first Mickey Monthly subscription box. I had bought it back at the end May and kept it on my kitchen table, as it starred at me to open it up. Mocking me as it did so.
My whole intention of buying Mickey Monthly was to try and push myself to expand my blog into other means of social media. Also, scoring myself some Disney Park merchandise.
What I love about Mickey Monthly, so far, they offer “one-time” boxes. All the joy of opening a mystery box, without the subscription fees for each month. So, like a little taste of what you could get each month.
I got the smaller one-time box, called “The Classic”, which boasts that it comes with 3-5 items from the park. Also, I was given three options to choose from, before buying, that asked what gender I wanted, age group, and how many boxes I wanted.
Let’s open it!
Watch the video below, or click right to my youtube channel to watch.
If you don’t want to watch because you can’t play sound, continue to scroll, I have a written version with pictures. Be sure to leave a comment on either or both to tell me what you think and/or if I should pick another subscription box company.
First look here, I have opened the box and instantly this paper fringes/confetti start falling out of the box. Mixed in with this paper are gold mickey shaped confetti, that just get everywhere. It was like a fun little confetti rain that just got everywhere and made a mess. You know what, I wasn’t even mad, it’s Disney.
Just make sure when you are opening your own box, that you open it on a surface that is easy to clean.
The first item that you see is this little pin.
It is a Pop button of everyone’s second favorite Star Wars villian, Darth Maul. It almost cute how small it is. I am not a fan of Darth Maul, but I can concede he is very awesome looking, and this is a great pin for a collection. This will most likely go on my Disney pin backpack. Here is a close up of the little guy.
I will show the back, that does have the complete collection of these Star Wars pins.
Next up we got a coffee thermos with Mickey!
There are two Mickeys on the cup, along with his name all in a sketch style. The background is grey, and Mickey is colored with his original colors of red, black, and yellow. It seems really sturdy for plastic, and the top opening clicks open and close. I love this cup! It matches a water bottle that I have, which is the same style. So now I have a matching set!
A Goofy luggage tag! I love the detail on this one, with the many patterns to make it pop. And of course Goofy, who doesn’t love Goofy? It feels like fake leather, which makes it rather sturdy when you are traveling. Who knows what happens to your luggage after you put it on your conveyor belt? The “loop” is actually a buckle for double security. Unfortunately, we aren’t traveling by air anytime soon. So, this will be put in our luggage storage until then.
Back of the tag, where you put your information on.
You just lift the little flap, and there is a little card to fill out.
My fourth item:
Finding Dory sponsored Jelly Belly. I gave a chuckle when I saw this, because I forgot how much Disney likes to stamp their movies on everything. Sometimes it isn’t a bad thing, and rather smart to put their brands on items that kids were flock to. Plus, I had a sweet tooth when I was opening this. Let me tell you, they didn’t last long.
The jelly beans were shimmery, and looked like they were dusted with luster dust to make them “Finding Dory” appealing. From the back of the bag you can see they named their flavors “sparkling”. Which I wouldn’t use that word, because I kept imagining that they were trying to mimic sparkling water. “Shimmering” would of been a better word, but I am being nit-picky.
By the way, they were amazing in flavor. Typical tart tasting Jelly Bellys. Not disappointed.
P.S.: I love how the bar code is a jelly bean.
And last but not least
A Jiminy Cricket key-chain. It is a rather large key-chain, in fact, and covers the palm of my hand. I really do love the pattern that they chose for this key-chain. It is kind of reminiscent of the Goofy luggage tag patterns. I wonder if that was intentional? I feel like it is like Alice in Wonderland whimsical feel to it with all the colors, patterns, and symbol on it.
So, there we have it. I got 5 items that were all of great value, and I feel like I got more for my money. Reminder that it was a $19.00 dollar box. There were not price tags on any of it, but knowing Disney Park merchandise, they are a little higher priced due to only getting them at the parks.
Do I feel like they were only Disney Park exclusive? No, but they didn’t claim that they were only exclusive to Disney parks either. I can see myself getting the Jelly Bellys at a grocery store, but I doubt I could get them now. Also, I got the one-time box, so I’m pretty sure the items that go into them are free for all.
Still, I really love this subscription box overall. It’s kind of magical in a way, that you get a box shipped to you, full of Disney products. I’m sure if I get the theme park boxes, its like a little bit of Disney shipped to me. And that’s what I am looking for, and what I based my blog on. So, I definitely would purchase again from them.
If you like what you saw from this box, go over to Mickey Monthly and check out what they have to offer. If you are on the fence about paying for a monthly subscription box, go with the Classic box that I went with, or there are other one-time boxes.
If you like this post, or even the video at my YouTube page, please comment below. Let me know what you think and if I should get another subscription box. This was very fun, and I wouldn’t mind doing it again.
Should I get a monthly subscription to Mickey Monthly?
Or suggest which other company I should try out.
Until next time
