I returned home from work this evening to find that wonderful little white box with the blue ice cream on it sitting my the bottom of the stairs. That’s right folks, February’s Fancy Box is here and this is what was in mine!
I am going to upload a video review of this months Fancy Box which will be posted as a new blog post once I get around to it. I will go in to the items and how I feel about them in the video as well as give an overall review of the box.
Back to this blog post and the items that were in this months Fancy Box:
Item Number 1
Tube City Beanie $20
Tube City is the ultimate in classic beanies. A multi-purpose you can wear as is or cuff to your desired length.
Item Number 2
Cordies keeps all of your cables organized and weighted down: phone chargers, digital camera cords, audio cables… whatever isn’t in use but shouldn’t be flopping around.
-Five rubber grips with four slots, each of which can hold the ends of several cords
-Weighted base for stability
-Small footprint (fits even the most cluttered workspaces)
-Tight grip keeps smaller cables USB and headphone cords in line
Item Number 3
The iHM63 is an amazing approach to audio that offers size defying sound. Speaker connects to a computer or other USB power source via the included USB cable to recharge the internal lithium ion battery. Remarkable design gives surprising volume and bass response in a speaker that fits in your palm. Perfect for laptops, cell phones, iPhone, iPod and other MP3 players, any audio source. Buy two for bigger, better sound. Includes carry bag.
Item Numbers 4 & 5
Doomed Crystal Skull Shot Glass $20 Each
This is a double-walled shotglass, but instead of the inner wall being shaped like a shotglass, it’s shaped like a skull. When you pour in your favorite spirit, it inhabits the inner skull, coloring it in quite nicely. As a bonus, it also keeps the beverage in the shot glass cooler, if it takes you a while to build up the courage to drink it.
Holds 2.5 ounces
Hand blown crystal clear borosilicate glass.
First thing that comes in to my head is that Fancy have increased the price of box (although I haven’t incurred this, it has happened) and I had $100 which is probably (looking back at my other boxes) one of the lowest amounts I have had in my Fancy Box. However, and I do not want to come across ungrateful as I am, Fancy have pulled out some stops in this as they have provided me with $20 more worth of stuff than the quoted “at least $80″.
I’ll be using the ‘Cordies’ for my desk as I have my MacBook Pro MagSafe cable, iPhone cables, headphones cables, hard drive cables and god knows what other cables going around my desk! I love beanies, so the Tube City Beanie will get worn at times. I like to Party & I like shots, so the skull shot glasses will of course be used and finally the iHome Speaker will be given to a very dear friend of mine who is in the market for one and will see if it is any good!
Again, I will be posting a video review on the blog (no doubt after tea as I really need to get some food, I am starving!).
