Retro Pop Box “1970s” Unboxing & Review – December 2015

retro pop box review




It’s time once again for a little taste of nostalgia… 70’s style with the help of the Retro Pop Box. So in case you didn’t know, the Retro Pop Box is a nostalgia based geeky subscription box that will send you a curated experience from either the 60’s, 70’s, or 80’s for just $25/month. Last month I reviewed the “1960’s” box, this month I got the “1970’s”… (naturally leaving the 1980’s for January). So let’s travel back to the age of disco and see what’s in the box…

…alright let’s take a look at each item…

Disco Ball Keychain

You can’t have the 70’s without Disco! This is a fairly simple plastic keychain with a “Boogie Oogie Oogie” tag attached to it. Not the greatest item but it fits the theme perfectly.

Kitsch on the Rocks Coasters

These coasters are kitschy for sure! I like that they are made to look like they’re on clearance with the yellow tag up on the top left. Again, like the disco ball this is VERY 70’s and goes perfectly with the theme. I would have liked to see something better than coasters though in the box.

DC Villains Magnet Set

I’m glad these are magnets and not buttons or stickers! They’re very nice magnets and will go well on my geeky fridge. I like DC Villains way more than I like the heroes… is that weird?

D&D Style Door Hanger

This item is very clever and I like that it pays homage to old school roll playing games. It comes with a 20 sided die that you roll to gain entry to the room… only a perfect 20 will work and any other number rolled will land you in some sort of trap. I really like this item and it’s very nostalgic but value wise it’s a bit lacking.

Knock His Frost Off Shirt

By far my favorite item in the box! I’m a huge fan of classic Christmas specials and the Miser Brothers are a great duo from “The Year Without a Santa Clause”… and the spin off “A Miser Brothers’ Christmas”. The Rock’em Sock’em Robots tie in works great and it’s something that I will definitely wear!

…and that was the Retro Pop Box “1970’s” box for December 2015. Overall I think they nailed it with the theme although value wise the box was a bit lacking. Last month I got the “60s” box which had a great Batman figure in it which added a lot more substance than this one. For $25/month shipped though I do believe we got what we paid for but not much over that if you ask me. I think it makes a much better gift idea (in my case) than an everyday box for me… like I would totally get my dad a subscription for his birthday and he would think it’s awesome.
