I was hoping for some Robin Hood or Merlin merch, so I am a little disappointed in the box, but I love the mug, and the puzzle and cards are fun, unique items, so overall I am happy with the box.

I’m not a big ran of the lanyard.Β  I’m not exactly sure how the pictures have anything to do with The Selection? (I’m thinking of the book by Kiera Cass, is there a different book or am I missing something?)

The pin has beautiful colors but its super hard to tell what the design is.

I like the coin purse and I am sure I will find something to put in it (coins maybe πŸ˜‰ ) but I am kind of tired of that quote.

These cards are gorgeous and I love the red edges!! And I can always use more decks of Cards!

At first I was a bit disappointed that the puzzle was only 300 pieces, but it ended up being a super challenging puzzle so it was a lot of fun! There are so many tiny details in the picture that it really is a work of art in itself!

The puzzle was hard mostly because of the design.Β  At first glance there isn’t a lot of variation. But it was made even harder by the cut of the puzzle.Β  All the pieces were roughly the same shape (two ins and two outs) and there were a couple pieces that fit where they weren’t supposed to.Β  I got down to the last piece and was so excited to finish it! But, even though the piece fit, the pattern didn’t match 😦

Bonus points if you can find the other piece that is in the wrong spot!! (It took me a while, and I had the physical puzzle in front of me)

Did you find it? (Hint: Its in the top right quarter)

The best item is the mug! I am totally in love with it! Its useful and it matches the one I already have (and I ordered the 1st one so soon I will have the full set!)

Last is the book. I think the OwlCrate cover change is super lame. They changed the title from silver to a light gold and you can barely tell the difference. Also I am not super interested in the book so I left it in the wrapping.Β  I haven’t decided yet if I am going to try and trade it or if I am going to do a giveaway, but either way I’m going to leave it in the wrapper.

Next month’s theme is Storms and Seas which sounds super cool! I hope we get some good pirate stuff!

  1. I’m glad you pointed out the difference in the covers, because I stared at the picture for a good minute and couldn’t tell the difference. I thought I was going crazy. Sorry you weren’t more excited for the book itself, but it would make a great giveaway for some one!

  2. Great unboxing! I am so so excited for this box and from the looks of it I think I’ll really like all the items included, especially the book. I’ve been so excited to receive and read it! πŸ˜ƒ Although yeah, that change in the cover is kinda lame… Lol

  3. Yikes, I found the puzzle piece faster than I found the difference in the book covers…

    I would assume the lanyard is meant to mean the Kiera Cass book, because The Selection could be called a trial. I am very disappointed there was no Robin Hood or Camelot stuff in it, though. That just makes so much more sense. Oh well, I guess they have to base it off the stuff they have access to. Still, all of those that I’m familiar with (except The Night Circus) are more “reality show” than what I think of as true tournaments or trials.

  4. Really love those cards! I think one of the reasons I don’t subscribe to book boxes is because I end up with a mix of things I like and don’t like and I’m terrible at getting rid of things I don’t like so I end up accumulating a ton of stuff…lol!
