MyFanmail: February Box Review

I love subscription boxes, and I’m glad I can finally pretend that I brought one for totally responsible reasons of for a review instead of just I WANT IT.

The box is from MyFanmail a self described “mystery box for lady geeks”, that’s run by two geeky ladies. A one month subscription (for shirt sizes small – XL) is $21.99 before postage. Be warned all the postage options are pretty fast options so postage will add probably at least a fiver to your total.

This month’s theme was FAMILIARS AND COMPANIONS.

Even the outside of the box is pretty, despite the scuffs it received in the mail. I also love the logo!

So what’s inside?

As always there’s an original design shirt. This one features a cross over between Avatar’s Appa and Totoro’s Catbus!

Finally there was also a “Get Shit Done” notebook and a quote bookmark that’s from a team up with Bookstr. I don’t know if the quotes vary from box to box, but I liked mine  because it’s from Christopher Paolini, as I love Eragon.

Each box also includes a notecard explaining each item, as well as a list of all the geeky things coming up in the next couple of months. I have to say as someone who loves lists I rreeaaallyyy like this feature.

So is the box worth your money? I don’t know, I’m not one of those blogs that does price estimates (sorry).  It is however a fun mix of geeky stuff that’s definitely fun to open! It also helps soften the financial blow, if your someone who gets hooked easily, (ahem definitely not me) that it’s a bimonthly box.

(I’d also recommend checking out the sites social media pages before buying a box, as they often put up hints of what franchises are included in each box – so you can make sure the items will be relevant to your interests)
