Strange Planet Box is a quarterly subscription box that delivers cool stuff for fans of Strange Planet by Nathan W. Pyle! The box cost starts at $39.99. Each quarter, you will receive out-of-this-world collectibles, apparel, accessories, stationery, homeware, decors, or even exclusive comics. The Strange Planet merch is directly delivered at your door!

The box that I received got a bit damaged, probably during shipping. Still, everything inside came in great condition.

What started as a webcomic is now a book series! Strange Planet features Aliens exploring regular human things and describing them in ways that, well, aliens might. Its quirky humor easily captured the interest of many, including us. The second book, Stranger Planet, was just released this June!

They included an info card which, of course, features an Alien!

The flip side lists all the items inside the box!

We have licensed Strange Planet merchandise here and I’m so excited!

Everything in my box!

Decorative Metal Fastener Enamel Pin. The pin was packed inside a carton to keep it safe and secured.

Inside, the carton packaging features the comic strip where the pin is based from! This pin features an Alien with a cat resting on its lap.

The Alien said the cat selected their thighs and I thought it was adorable! The Alien’s eyes made it seem like they were so touched!

Exclusive Canvas Comic. Nathan W. Pyle’s comic is known for having only 4 panels and it would be nice to have several of them on display at home! This one is printed on canvas so it can be easily displayed, and the strip is about the Aliens who are cloud watching and making shapes out of clouds. The last panel is hilarious and totally relatable!

The canvas is securely stapled on the frame. It also comes with hanging hardware. Now, all I need is to find a good spot for it on my wall!

Wood Preserver Squares Coasters. These wood preserver squares are actually coasters! In case you haven’t already noticed, they mimicked the author’s comic style in naming the items in this box!

The back of the box features the comic design that was turned into coasters. I cracked up when I read “creamy fluid” and “sweet disk”!

These wood preserver squares can be used altogether and arranged just like the comics, and they also work individually. They are useful in protecting the table and other flat surfaces.

Foot Fabric Tubes Socks. This box also includes a pair of cute socks. They called it “foot fabric tubes”!

According to the label, these one-size-fits-most socks are made with 98% polyester and 2% elastane.

A part of one of the socks was a bit dirty. Hopefully, it’ll go away once we’ve washed it!

The socks have a white base color, with red toes, heels, and text prints, aside from the main design on the leg part.

The print on the socks is the Alien on the finish line of what looks like a marathon event!

Concave Sustenance Dish with Nourishment Shovel. The next “strange” item I received is a bowl and spoon, which they referred to as a sustenance dish and nourishment shovel!

The bowl has some cute images on it, including the sun, a cat, a three-eyed dog, a heart, and Aliens!

The spoon’s handle has the Alien on it with a shy smile!

This would be best for cereals and oats!

Hydration Cylinder. Here’s another comic strip featuring the Aliens with a cat and it’s featured on a hydration cylinder or, simply put, a glass!

The print is high-quality and it doesn’t seem like the type that would fade easily.

I love the cat and the Aliens’ interactions!

“It obeys only itself” is such an accurate way to describe cats, right?

I Crave Star Damage Three-Dimensional Representation Vinyl Figure. For displaying on your desk, bedside table, or anywhere else in the house, here’s a vinyl figure of one of the Aliens!

The figure also came with a comic strip, which is titled “I Crave Star Damage”. It’s one of the most popular strips from this series!

The Alien is craving for “star damage”, which apparently, is just another word for sunburn!

His statement is written on the purple base.

The creature looked so happy despite the burns that he got! Well, if he had fun under the sun, it’s definitely worth it!

Strange Planet Fabric Torso Covering (Shirt). Aside from the socks, we have another wearable in the box, and it’s a striped shirt a.k.a. fabric torso covering to the Aliens!

There’s an embroidered Alien design on the upper left chest part of the shirt.

On the hem is a tag that says the author’s name and the series’ title.

Shroud of Deception Fleece Blanket. To keep me warm and comfy while I read Strange Planet, they sent a fleece blanket!

On the comic strip featured on the blanket, the Aliens are talking about a hydration cylinder again!

The comic strip is indeed fitting for this blanket. One of the Aliens couldn’t sleep so they asked for a drink.

The blanket keeps me warm but it’s not too heavy. The texture of the blanket is also soft and gentle.

On this panel, one Alien asks the other Alien to keep the corridors illuminated.

“Imagine pleasant nonsense” sounds funny but it’s a great piece of advice for someone who can’t sleep. My kids love this blanket as well!

The Strange Planet series is really fun and witty, and the items we received in this box are definitely consistent with its humor. My favorites are the blanket and the coasters, but everything else is adorable! It’s also cool that some of the merchandise aren’t just inspired by the Aliens, but they actually have the popular comic strips on them. Any b e i n g that loves Strange Planet or collector would love this box because the items are licensed and high-quality! There’s a long wait between boxes because it only arrives once every quarter, but if it’s always as jampacked as this one, then it’d be worth it! If you’re anything like me (addicted to sharing Strange Planet cartoons on Facebook and anxiously awaiting the next one), you will love this subscription!
