Here we are at the end of yet another month and once again I have not yet posted a review of the latest TMNTBox. (Oops) So
once again it is time to check out the latest subscription gift box for TMNT fans.
I should note, I was able to confirm that they have changed the options that they offer. Whereas I originally signed up for both the Classic and Modern box, starting in August they dropped the Modern box as an option. They still offer both a Classic and a Combo option, which are the two I have here. But they tend to share many of their items. So this should be the last month where I recieve two boxes. (And to their credit, the people at TMNTbox.com we're happy to change over my subscription and add the remainder of the Modern box subscription to the other. It's always nice to see good customer service.)
Packaging - 4/10The packaging hasn't changed any. It is the same box as previous months with nothing more than the included items and a promotional card inviting you to tweet about TMNTbox for a chance to win a bonus prize package. I have to say, both of my boxes arrived in fairly rough shape. It was nothing that would risk damage to the items inside. But if you were planning on giving this as a gift, you might want the box to be in better condition than this. Similarly, if TMNTbox wants to set itself apart from all of the other subscription gift box services then just doing the bare minimum isn't going to cut it.
Contents - 8/10This month each box contained five items:
In and of itself, that is a decent assortment of items. So if this was the first box you received, you would probably be pretty pleased. But this is a subscription service and I would have to assume that most of their customers are not brand new to the service. So having boxes two months in a row with largely the same items ends up being more disappointing than it should be.
Value - 7/10The TMNTboxes range in price from $16 to $20 per box plus shipping depending upon how long of a period you commit to. Even at the $20 price, from a strict finacial perspective the gift boxes are a good deal. But of course that value drops considerably when the contents are something that you already own.
Happy Hunting:As usual, if you are interested in these particular assortments of items, you're out of luck. But there is still time to sign up for next month at www.tmntbox.com.
