Unboxing the Bizarre has started a new book subscription called Bizarre Bibliotheca Holiday Box. Expect to receive a themed book, surprises, and suggestions to celebrate an offbeat holiday.
We took guesses to what fun and wacky May holiday we will be reading and celebrating before opening the box.
Here are the items in the May Unboxing the Bizarre Bibliotheca Holiday Box.
Our nine-year-old son was excited that we were celebrating Star Wars Day. We celebrate it every year.
The information card describes the holiday, the items, and ways to celebrate including reading about Margaret Thatcher’s first day as Prime Minister.
The highly reflective Darth Vadar 18oz Ceramic Mug (MSRP $12.99 Info Card) has Darth Vader on one side and the saying, “You Don’t Know the Power of the Dark Side!” on the flip side.
It did arrive with a chip on the rim. Unboxing the Bizarre kindly offered to replace it.
We love socks! The Star Wars 2 pair Crew Socks (MSRP 8.99 Info Card) will be worn by my boys when they watch the Star War movies together. The socks are similar in quality to what you find at Target.
J, our nine-year-old son, has been busy reading and reenacting scenes from William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher ($14.95 MSRP, Amazon, $10.39.) All right, I’ve been playing with the light sabers too.
Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying…pretty much everything.
J plans to hide the book from his big brother.
We had such a blast reading this book!
My family loved having new ways to celebrate Star Wars Day. We also discovered a new series of books to read. The mug and socks added to the fun. The Unboxing the Bizarre Bibliotheca Holiday Box is an excellent box for readers that love wacky holiday and themed books. May the Fourth be With You!
What do you think of this month’s box?
