So I initially signed up for a thre month subscription for both pins. After my first package came I left an extremely unhappy review stating that I hated my pins and had been sent a previous box. After that review I was contacted personally by the curators and told that the unicorn and the flame are their "welcome box" and offering to replace them free of charge. At the time I refused but what wonderful customer service!! Since I had already paid for three months I was committed so I regretfully resigned myself to getting two more shipments. When my second box arrived I was mostly thrilled! I got a little teddy bear (which isn't my style but super cute) and a quirky little avacado that I actually think I might wear quite often. This is what I signed up for; quirky, cute, and unusual.
Thus I am retracting my previous negative review with one stipulation: if you do not like the unicorn and the flame, contact the seller and ask them to skip the "welcome" pack and just send the one for that month, considering my experience with this great customer service, I'm sure they would be willing to oblige.
As someone who already has way too many pins (but always needs more) I was surprised to see a loot box option for pins. The first two that arrived were the "intro" ones that everyone gets sent, and then after that I have been getting the monthly packages. It's like getting a present in the mail each month and knowing you're going to like it.
Some pins have the standard pin backing and some are now magnetic, which was an interesting surprise. The magnetic backed pins are on a different board due to this but still happy.
I ordered this box for my daughter’s birthday and she really loved it, it even arrived in time for the actual day. The only thing I would suggest is a more clear description of the “family” box. I ordered this assuming that all the pins were different, but you get two each of two designs plus one signature pin. So, if you’re ordering this for one person they end up with doubles, which is not a big deal because it’s good for sharing, just a point of information. The pins themselves are super cute and good quality.
