This month is the second one for the official Disney tsum tsum subscription box! Tsum tsums are becoming more popular than ever, with some series being sold out within minutes of going up for sale online. If you’re not familiar with them, check out my post on an Introduction to Tsum Tsums!
If you’re into the exclusive aspect and want to collect tsum tsums, Disney has created this subscription box. For $24.95 a month you get a box delivered to your door. The box will contain one mini sized tsum tsum and one small tsum tsum. The mini one will be an exclusive one to the box, meaning that you won’t be able to buy it anywhere else. The small one may be another character that is already available in tsum tsum form, but the small size is not available outside of the subscription so that also makes it an exclusive item.
The first box contained a small Mickey and a mini Oswald. This box contained two Minnie Mouses.
I won’t lie, I was slightly disappointed to see that not only did this box contain two of the same character, but it was a very common character (Minnie Mouse). The mini one is considered “exclusive” because she is in a pink dress, and you can’t get that anywhere else. She’s also winking.
The “small” one is just like ones they make in other sizes, but the subscription box is the only way to get this particular size.
Overall I really think that for the price of the box, Disney is going to have to step up their game with what they are sending. Having characters that are already available but in a different size or different color outfit just isn’t going to cut it, at least for me. I would love to see some actual rare characters that you can’t get anywhere else. I’ll subscribe for at least one more month but what they send in January will be very telling for if I continue the subscription.
