Love the idea of the box which is why instead of only trying one month I ordered a 3 month subscription. It descent amount of time. I will say I was sort of disappointed. The puzzle book was old and faded with pages being brittle. The coloring book... that was a complete disappointment. I would of never expected something like that even to be made. Maybe sold in the dollar store?? I don’t see how that would be picked to send out. I saw other people’s boxes where they got a couple of books or the normal coloring books and that is what I expected. Not something about old Hollywood actors. The hardcover book seems nice but they sent the second book in the series which really kind of stinks. Like why do that. Now I have no idea how everything started and the whole story beforehand?? It’s a nice quality book with the red dot on the edges so it’s a discount book which I don’t mind that part. It just a total bummer that the book I got followed a book written before it. There was a cute magnetic bookmark put in there. I upgraded to the coffee. That was pretty good and a nice size. That was the only thing of use really in the whole box. Overall the first box was a total dud. Which sucks because I was going to renew and purchase more. I had no idea these would be old...
I started out liking this subscription. After today's box I am really happy I canceled. I never received a box that I liked all 3 items. The puzzle books are so hard I just donate them. It has become obvious that he is buying his books from a Not high quality place. The puzzle book that arrived today has yellowing pages and smells so musty it's making my allergies go nuts. Probably stored in a garage since it's 2005 copyright.
I do adore that he sends a lollipop every month. The novels are usually pretty good if old. Today's copyright is 2019.
A lot of this us my opinion like the books being hard. Some of it is just facts.
I was subscribed to My Thrill Club and Coloring and Classics and both gave me the same book.
I received my first box on time. The items were ok, nothing fantastic. I was charged for second and third box, never received them. Contacted seller, never got a response. Contacted customer service and they didn't get a response. Cancelled my subscription.
I liked the products. I just think it doesn’t fit what I’m looking for right now. The coloring book wasn’t what I like to color. The fiction book looks interesting so I will read it.
First box was fine. I hated the second box. They didn’t even try to make a box that the subscriber would love. It contained a sudoku book that was so old the pages had yellowed, a horror book, which was not my genre pick, and a Family Guy coloring book which I do not watch and was not interested in at all. Overall two stars because I like the coffee. The rest was horrible!
The last 3 boxes were bad..
Not what I expected. The selection of books was really bad.
Received my first box and was a little disappointed with items inside. I was expecting a coloring book that others had been posting about and received a panoramic fold out. The book I received looks interesting so at least I have that.
I like the book but didnt like the stickers or the coloring book. Was hoping for a puzzle book. I also tried the lip moisturizer and it was obvously old . I will give this one more month but dissappointed in the activities that i was looking forward to from this box:(
So far, month 1, I am disappointed. I sent this to my dad for his birthday. He got 2 coloring books and no activity book. He was already less than thrilled about the gift when I first told him, but I think he was excited about the activity book. Instead he got 1 coloring book, and 1 “black board” coloring book... basically a coloring book with a black background instead of white.
I was disappointed that I received a coloring book that I wasnt super interested in and a crossword book that was for left handed people that looks as though it came from the Dollar Tree. I haven't read any of the book but the cover preview sounds interesting. I was definitely hoping for better!
Hi Ashley, apologies for letting you down. The coloring book is the same for everyone. We really try to pick something new and different every month because of the wide range of tastes we have to accommodate. I can understand how on occasion the topic might not be to someone's liking. Crossword puzzles aren't for everyone but a good part of our membership finds that it is the only activity that refocuses their attention completely. I can't say for sure but I don't think you will find the New York Times Cross Word Puzzle book at a dollar store :) If you will email our service address I am happy to replace it for you. Have a great day!
I picked acclaimed fiction. I got two sci-fi books, no coloring or activity things:(.
Hopefully it was just a fluke and next month will be better.
