Mickey Monthly Box May 2016 box

Mickey Monthly is a monthly Disney-themed subscription box.  They offer snack boxes, souvenir boxes, and combo boxes with a mix of both types of items!  Mickey Monthly selects items from a large selection of WDW souvenirs and treats and now offers 2 subscriptions, both with their own size options (plus you can specify age and gender). The original Mickey Monthly is $19 or $39 per month – this is the smaller “classic” box, gender neutral, ages 5-9.  The Theme Park Edition is obviously Parks merchandise and ranges from $29.99-$199.99 per month.

This looks a lot better than my first box from Mickey Monthly!  This one didn’t have any of the snack items that we had found to be undervalued.

It has a sprinkle of magic too – Mickey heads!

Mickey Monthly Box May 2016 review

Everything in my May Mickey Monthly box.

Mickey Monthly Box May 2016 (1)

Cinderella “Make an Entrance” Backpack ($30) I honestly didn’t know what to think of this preschooler-sized backpack!  It’s super-cute, and has gold trim and sparkles within the graphics.  The little pocket is even glass slipper shaped!

It’s an official Disney licensed mini-backpack, and it is fully functional with adjustable webbing straps.  The backpack is very tiny, though, so its best used as a pre-school pack or for toting a couple choice items along — it’s not really big enough to hold school age kids’ books or folders.

I guess this works for my 7 year old – she was pretty happy about it! Mickey Monthly Box May 2016 (3)

Disney Pixar Merida Accessory Clips:  Use these as hair clips or on shoes, etc.  backed by gold and blue tule ribbons, they are styled like saphire-laden golden broaches with a big pic of the plucky princess!

Bibidi Bobidi Boutique Bun Tiara: This is a pretty Cinderella-esque tiara.  It’s tiny and intended to hold a top hair bun in place.  I like the Mickey shaped gem at the bottom!

Disney Pixar Finding Dory 8-Pack Markers + Disney Pixar Finding Dory Stickers: Perfect to celebrate the upcoming film! We have a road trip coming up and I’ll be taking both these items in the car to keep my kids entertained.

The stickers feature some of the characters from the new film, including Dory, Nemo, Hank the Octopus, and Destiny the Whale Shark.

Perry the Platypus Plushie: A cute Disney Parks item.  Perry comes in his trademark teal color and wears his trusty brown fedora.

Every time I see Perry I get all sad that he’s not actually a beaver. I’m thinking about sewing on beaver teeth and putting him in my beaver collection, but surely my children will protest. This is a great Parks item.

Frozen Water Bottle Container: This was obviously a hit – each of my 3 of my kids had their own favorite thing they loved about the bottle. I would have been good with a box just full of FROZEN stuff.

My daughter’s favorite scene was that with the sisters in their Springtime outfits.

My five year old loves Olaf.

My baby was fascinated with the screw bottom – perfect for snackies!

If my review seems a little short – I just didn’t jive with this box, and I thought it was pretty young for ages 5-9!  My kids (and our whole family) are real Disney fans but we’re a little atypical — we love nearly all things Disney, but we’ve never really endorsed the “every little girl is a princess” thing (my daughter had zero interest in the tiara or accessory clips).   We did think this box had better value than our last one because it had merchandise instead of snacks.   I think next month we’re getting the larger size of this box to show the difference in items, and then trying a month of the 100% Theme Park items box (souvenirs only, and upping the age range by one to 10-17). It was by no means a bad box – we just weren’t that into it, but we think we’ll be happy with the theme park version!
