First off: no one asked me to review this box. I just decided that I really like some of the items so much that I wanted to share.
Second: I should note that my first and longest-running subscription box is the quarterly Pusheen Box, which is quite a bit different from FabFitFun. the Pusheen box tends to be filled with cute (but cheap) products mostly manufactured in China, featuring Pusheen the Cat. I’ve enjoyed my subscription, but I’m actually getting ready to cancel, as a year and a half of quarterly Pusheen Boxes is probably enough cute kitty cat merch for one household.
The only other subscription box I’ve tried is ButcherBox, which delivers grass-fed beef, chicken, and pork straight to my door every other month (or every month, if we suddenly start eating much more meat than we do right now).
I learned about FabFitFun from dooce (as did, I’m guessing, scores of other middle-aged moms). I figured that, for less than the price of a Pusheen Box, I’d be getting some stuff I know I’d use (as opposed to cute tchotchkes and kitty-themed household items that I may or may not roll my eyes at).
As it turns out, I did get some stuff I could use. (more…)
