Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside Unboxing the Bizarre for July – orange!
Note: We received the July box for review in July. Paid subscribers receive their boxes before July to ensure they’ll be able to celebrate each holiday.
Everything that we received in the July Unboxing the Bizarre
Four hilariously fun holidays that make us celebrate the everyday!
So what is all this stuff?
Embrace Your Geekness Day
Celebrated on July 13th this holiday commemorates the geek inside us all!
We know we’ve got enough geek to go around in case you need a little!
Our item for this holiday is this cool tin sign with the original Star Trek Crew!
Hang your geek pride in a visible location. On your wall, or in your window – just make sure you do it proudly!
National Day of the Cowboy
July 23rd is National Day of the Cowboy. What does that mean to you? Well, this holiday (started in 2005) was created as a way to honor cowboys everywhere who herd cattle and have been doing so since the Civil War! So watch a John Wayne movie, or do a line dance!
This is our favorite item in the box because it’s cool! The metal is real and the design is original looking and not the least bit tacky!
As you can see the cowboy is illuminated through the frosted pane of the nightlight. It has a switch for convenient use as well.
Take Your Houseplant for a Walk Day
On July 27th we celebrate one of the most wacky holidays in this box (in our opinion). Since we go for walks and we take our children for walks, and dear old Rover gets to stretch his legs why not our green friends as well?
This patriotic boot planter is the wittiest item we received in this box by far! Literally take your plant for a walk – in a boot! This is super fun and we can’t wait to dress it up with a plant
Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day
There are so many instruments that people are no longer using. If you’ve ever been curious about them now there’s an entire day devoted to finding out as much as you can about a psaltery, clackamore, or an Earth harp.
The kids love this! In fact it inspired some interesting conversation about how music boxes actually work. The simple crank is very cool and the tune is sweet!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. Unboxing the Bizarre is a fun and kooky box that gives us a reason to spread joy and cheer. If you’re like us (and we hope you are) you rise each day with gratitude for you are still here! Each day is a gift and a subscription like Unboxing the Bizarre helps us to appreciate this fun and crazy world we are a part of! The presentation is awesome. Everything is packaged well and each holiday (and item) is explained. The quality is great. All of the items we received are unique and wonderful! The curation is an absolute hit! Each item covers a unique holiday in July and the items included reflect it perfectly
As far as box econom Unboxing the Bizarre is $39.95 monthly and for that we received $110 in items which is an incredible deal!
