Hello to my lovely readers, if you’re still out there. It’s been awhile since I uploaded anything but with university over and a new job on the horizon I might be able to start up some new subscriptions. There still won’t be regular updates, more as and when I purchase.
This one is a bit different, a new one-off box for people that collect Disney pins. I’ve recently started collecting rather then just purchasing the odd pin when I go on holiday. This is a unique box as it is available to people in the UK, from the UK. There are four boxes to choose from that range from £20-48 depending on how many pins and if you want limited edition pins included. The box in the review is the Rookie box which cost £32 and included 5 pins none of which are limited edition.
The box comes well packaged and with the logo on the outside, so you know exactly what you’re about to open. There is a handwritten postcard inside which is a really nice touch and adds to the feel of the box being personalised to you. The pins are wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a ribbon and sticker (which I removed and added to my sticker collection to use at a later date) but the individual pins come wrapped in bubble wrap to keep them protected.
When you purchase one of these boxes you can specify what type of collection you prefer, I stated, Mulan, Philharmagic, and a few others that are my smaller collections that I still love. I was absolutely blown away with the pins I received. Two from Mulan which I have been eyeing up for awhile and a new Mickey’s Philharmagic pin which is a bit of an obscure collection and never expected them to be able to include one in my box, very grateful. It also has a moveable element with Donald (my favourite classic character) and will go nicely on a pin board when I get around to buying one.
The other two pins that are included were no less impressive, the Mickey head is one that I will put into a trade for a later date as it doesn’t quite fit with what I collect, but it’s still great quality. The Piglett is adorable as well, I will hold onto it for now as I do like Winnie the Pooh pins and have a small side collection, but he will likely be put into a trade at a later date as well.
So not only have I added three pins to my collection, but I have added to my trading pot as well which when you get into collecting these pins; is just as important as the collection itself at times.
A massive thank you to all the staff at Magical Pin Box UK, the link to their Facebook group is: https://www.facebook.com/magicalpinboxuk/ and they are in the process of getting a website up and running to make purchasing the boxes easier. For now, you order through Facebook, the September boxes have just sold out but keep your eyes open and they will let you know when the next set of boxes become available.
Thanks for reading!
