OwlCrate and Lit Cube April Reveal

This is my last Lit Cube reveal and my first OwlCrate reveal!  I thought last month was my last Lit Cube, but apparently I didn’t cancel it in time, so I got one more.

Let’s save the best for last and start with Lit Cube:

Lit Cube lowered the price of their subscriptions by $10, making it $25 a month.  They also started shipping items in a bubble mailer instead of a box and the quality and quantity of their items dropped significantly.

April’s theme was “Passport to California” and these were the items included, and their retail value:

  • Ana of California – $16
  • Anne of Green Gables inspired bookmark – $5
  • See’s Candy Lollipop – $1
  • Route 66 Enamel Pin – $10
  • California Decal – $4

I know the retail value of these items totals $36 but I wouldn’t have paid anywhere close to that for them.  The bookmark is just a laminated piece of paper with a huge yarn tassel.  We made these in 5th grade for a class project.  Literally a 5th grader can make them. (no offence to whoever did make it, its just not worth $5 in my opinion)

Overall I am incredibly disappointed in this box and it just re-enforced the fact that I am glad I canceled my subscription.

  1. Owlcrate did amazing the last six months in a row! I had a six month subscription, but ended up canceling because of the expense and I wasn’t really using the extras. It’s worth it though! My oldest daughter gets Owlcrate junior and loves it. Great post 😁💜 So glad you loved this one.

  2. Next month is definitely your theme!

    My first thought when I saw your Lit cube was why is there something Anne of Green Gables in a CA themed box? She’s Canadian.
