Although I don't find everything in the boxes useful, I do enjoy getting them each month. I like the classroom supplies [pencils, markers, scissors, glue, etc.] more than the random personal items [mugs]. I live in a remote fly-in community, so I don't have access to any of these things. I am always excited when I pick this up from the post office.
I feel like this subscription service is very poor. The items are often broken or don’t work at all. It is a waste of money- especially for teachers.
I am nearly done with my annual subscription, and I will not be renewing. Most months have been worthless stuff you might get as freebies from a convention. There have only been two months where I felt like I got nice stuff; most of the time I can't even give the plastic junk away. This month was even worse than usual. I got a cheap rubber key chain, a dollar store mug that was totally smashed, as it was not even packed in bubble wrap, a hollow plastic faux Emmy award, a plastic pen and a generic bath bomb. It genuinely seems like these might have all been freebies, purchased in bulk from Oriental Trading company, or all gotten from the dollar store. I bought this teacher kit thinking that I would actually get cool things like dry erase post-its, magnetic dry erase markers, or other little luxuries that I would not normally buy myself. I have never left a bad review in my life, but after being silent for so many months, this was the final straw.
